Winter Problems

4 December 2014

I love Winter. Truly, I do. It's probably my favourite season of the whole year, just because it comes with so many wonderful features. The festivities, cuddling up on the sofa, the Christmas lights, knowing it's cold on the outside of the duvet when you're warm under it.... However, I was getting out of bed the other day and my feet nearly froze as they touched the floor...I may as well have French plaited my hair, changed my name to Elsa and started singing 'Let It Go' it was so cold. So I jotted down a few problems that you find with Winter, despite loving the season.

Lots are to do with the cold. Did I mention that I don't enjoy being cold? Unlike Elsa, the cold does bother me anyway.


001. Struggling to fall asleep at night because it's so cold...

002. .....and then struggling to wake up because you've finally got warm and it feels like the Antarctic outside your duvet.

003. Regretting having that extra 10 minutes in bed, as you didn't prepare to find ice on your car windscreen and now you're going to be late for work. Massive fail.

004. Looking out of the window and thinking 'it's about 9pm..time for bed?' Maybe not as it's only FOUR IN THE AFTERNOON. Why so dark?!?!

005. Not being able to wear your onesie to work. I'm sorry, but they keep me warm so I should be allowed.

006. Needing to go to the loo, but having to mentally prepare yourself because the toilet seat is like an ice block.

007. Sneezing so hard that you almost split your lip. Where is the lip balm please?!

008. Having to physically sit next to the radiator to try and get warm, but then risk burning a layer of skin off - a risk we have all taken.

009. Forcing your animals to lie next to you to act as a 'furry hot water bottle'. Don't does the job very well.

010. Being unable to find a hair style that can withstand the rain, wind and cold and look good without feeling like straw. Ponytail it is then. For the 12th day running.

And with that my friends, I'm going to wrap up very warm before heading out to work this morning!

  1. I've just sat here nodding along to nearly all of these... Pretty sure if I had pets, it'd be all of them!

    FYI, ponytail today and since Monday. Sigh.

  2. Haha I feel your pain. I can't stand the cold. I am really struggling to get out of bed in the morning and it feels like it is ALWAYS dark! Next week I am taking myself off to Australia for three weeks just to warm up haha!

  3. This is such a fun post. I hate the cold too... I still question my decision to move to Finland on a daily basis! The static shocks from a combination of dry skin and hair and too much polyester blend clothing are enough to tip me over the edge some days! xxx

  4. I would love to go to work in my onesie! I am with you on not being able to stand the cold! x

  5. I am definitely the same, I am totally a cold person and hate being cold! I agree, I would love to wear my onesie to work - air conditioning post October should not be allowed, I am permanently cold in the office at the moment! Weirdly though I always get hot at night, our house is generally quite warm upstairs so I still have to have the fan on at night, crazy huh? xo
