Now, I know I’ve been moaning that November has been much too warm. In many ways, it’s been lovely to not have to wear a hat or gloves and to only have a hoody on. However – the weather is now turning – today the temperature will be no higher than 5C (41 F). I am really pleased, although I am conscious that a plummeting temperature won’t suit quite a few people. I was speaking with my friend N about this a couple of days ago; we came to the conclusion that, as my wishes do not actually influence the weather, I needn’t feel guilt at my pleasure when it becomes colder.
Yesterday afternoon was the first time that I’ve seen people wearing hats and gloves and agreed that there is a need for them.
