That’s what my weather app is saying about Forest Hill now. No wonder I’m freezing my watuzi off. Why is it so cold? Or have I just become old?

I was just at Kiddo’s school for an info/briefing session for her trip to the old world. It’s now just over 2 weeks before they leave and everyone is excited now. I had to trek into the city and in this weather, it wasnt fun. The traffic was bad, it was cold and, I’m not the one going to Europe in 2 weeks.A 6pm meeting meant I had to cut across the city circa 5.30pm – the worst possible time to be in the St Kilda Road area. Thankfully a cold night meant there was plenty of parking available so that took some of the pain away. I was a little late and when I approached the theaterette where the talk was being held, the crowd was already there and it had started.

Kiddo reserved a seat just next to her and I sat down and tried to get into the mood of things. Thankfully I managed that.

Apparently it will be hot in Italy this northern summer. What a treat it’d be for kiddo, if even to just get away from this cold and wet winter in Melbourne. It would be a trip she will enjoy and remember very fondly I’m sure. I’m really happy for her. If nothing else, she’d get away from this cold for a few weeks. Why is it so cold? Or am I just old?



Grey Day… and cold!

Owner of a lonely heart

I’m home – cold, feeling miserable as I look outside at the grey, wet and cold conditions. Struggling to get some work done. Tress is having dental surgery done under general anaesthetics so I have taken the day off to just be around apart from being the chauffeur, and maybe make some hot soup later. Maybe I’ll go out and get a badly needed hairy, just to get into a warmer place away from this cold, wet and grey environment. Cant stand a grey day. Near depressing.

Just over 2 weeks now before kiddo heads off to Europe. There’s an info session tonight and I really dont want to go out in these conditions but it’s important I do I guess, so I have to head off into the city on my day off, for an evening meeting. I dont know why the teacher can’t just disseminate the information over an email or something. Sometimes I feel like we truly are living in a nanny state where everyone bends over backwards to come across as doing the right thing. Maybe it is just me being grumpy on this grey day… I need to see the sun…
