When it's cold, it's best to curl-up on the sofa, bung a few more logs on the fire, and sleep until supper time.
I wouldn't mind doing that too, but there are those logs to saw, someone needs to keep the fires fed, and there are plenty of other hand-numbing outside jobs to do.
I keep telling myself that March is only 6 weeks away, when (one hopes) things will be better. Even now I look at the long term weather forecast and temperatures seem on the rise a tad.
So far this winter we've had a couple of very light frosts (-1C-ish) but nothing really to complain about. Of course this doesn't mean we won't have much more severe weather later on; we usually do.
My gloves and scarf will stay in use for a while yet, but I'm really looking forward to putting them away again until Christmas (Jeeze Cro, you used the C word).
