A week into winter 
7th-Jun-2009 10:41 pm
Q all fluffed up for the night

It's officially one week into winter here down under.

And I'm freezing! Going to bed at 15ºC isn't half bad, but having lows of 7-9ºC sometime through the night means getting out of bed is a struggle. However I give mini-thanks everytime I slip my feet into my uggies (a birthday present from the in-laws), for without them, I wouldn't be able to bear stepping onto the kitchen tiled floor... or toilet. No pee-pee for me then, eh?

Commuting by cycling to and from work now is also a health hazard. Short of wearing 2 tees over a sports bra, my nips are getting uncomfortably cold.
And guys... it's not an amusing condition.

The cold also means one feels hungrier earlier. With the sun setting at 4:30pm, the urge for a warm fatty dinner is often too irresistable. Hot pies, casseroles, stews... the SO has complained the packed lunches I usually give him isn't enough to carry him through the day. I've had to double the quantity to stop his whinging... but it all means putting on a 'winter coat'.

Seeing Q all fluffed up at bedtime reminds me that he feels the chill too, but while he is breaking through some extra feathers for the season (making him a lot more affectionate for scratches to help with the itching), I am still most comfortable in an oversized tee and shorts.

Oh well, time to dig out those tights and sweaters from the winterwear box.

As long as you are not in complete shade or in a very windy area, our afternoons are still warmish at 19-23ºC.

*LOL* And trust me when I say our summers will be hotter than back in Singapore. 40ºC is torture in the height of sunny summers in Queensland.

I don't know whether I prefer extreme cold, or extreme hot weathers D8....

But ooooh looking at the photo makes me wanna scratch him too XDDD

Extreme cold is bloody painful, whereas extreme hot weather isn't.

He wants to be scratched too... a little too often these days, which can be annoying, cuz I need my own fingers to cook/clean/type.

Its been chilly here do the cloudy and wet weather. not wintry, but chilly for June.

At least not like the below zero weather we had here over winter.

Brrr... sub-zero weather bloody hurts if you're not properly bundled up.

Muuu, cute fluffy wittly Q~ -gives useless over the internet scratches- Ahh, it was terrible for me going to sleep in early winter in Sydney. :( Sometimes even with a heater, it was rather uncomfortable.

-hugs- Hope you find a comfy, warm way to pass the winter. ^^ uggs are great for keeping feet warm! ;o; Cold feet is not good feeling. :x

And we don't have a replacement heater, since our old one died. I need a kotatsu, damnit!

Apparently Sydney is about 10ºC at the moment. The weekend will be freezing and I would probably prefer to stay in bed as well.
