Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I'm not normally one to complain (what?!!) but I'm a bit cross about the weather. When we moved down here last December I was thrilled to discover that London is usually about 6 degrees warmer than Sheffield. Just to confirm this I check the BBC weather site for both locations daily .....I know it's a bit sad but I don't get out much.

My friends who still reside up north have had to put up with a little bit of gloating over the last 11 months, as I have repeatedly reported the differences in temperature to them. After 3 years in the Army in my early twenties I made a vow never to be cold again if I could help it.

This week it has been freezing down here - we've had a thick frost every morning since Tuesday. Last year we never had one frosty morning. It was such a novelty not having to scrape the car windscreen.

I'd like to complain to God, or whoever is in charge of temperature changes. I have had to wear woolly gloves and hats this week - and I really thought all that was behind me.

Do you think that the weather has followed me? And in case you were wondering - it's not 6 degrees colder in Sheffield...at the moment it's actually 2 degrees warmer.....what's that about then?
