…to the Northern Free State. Or rather, it has come. Suddenly. So suddenly that I keep looking out the window for a sign of the White Walkers while fretting at the total absence of obsidian in the house. I don’t like it.
Just yesterday I was still walking around barefoot and in shorts. Actually I did today as well, but today I seriously questioned the wisdom of that particular choice of attire. Right now I’m sitting typing this with slippers on my feet and a little blanket covering my legs. One would think I’m living in an old age home, for crying out loud.
I have a feeling we’re going to pay this year for the very mild winter we had last year. Luckily we’re temporarily migrating to warmer climes for a few days before we have to surrender to the rigours of not-summer (and without the benefit of central heating and double-glazed windows, I might add).
It’s at times like these I wish hibernation was an option.
