It's too cold!
The other day on my way home from work, i read in the paper that it had been -1.5 degrees at my station 30 minutes before i got there. I suppose that makes this morning's 4 positively toasty? To try and stay warm on the train (this morning's has no heating), i wear 2 pairs of socks, a beanie, my warmest jacket and my thickest scarf (very similar to the pic above, but at the moment my beanie is white and my scarf is pink and white). The building where i work has no heating - it relies on the building itself to retain heat (this is usually ok, but after a month of below average temps it's becoming chilly), and i found out that some of my staff have started wearing thermals to work to stay warm! My office has a wall that is actually a large glass door, so when i'm working in there, it's not unusual to see me in my jacket and scarf! I've now officially decided that i'm not getting out of bed tomorrow unless or until the temperature gets above 12. :-D

Outside my shop again

This is the view out the door of my store this morning. All the run-off from the buildings around us ends up on our street, resulting in the road being covered in at least 3cm of water, usually more!
One thing i don't understand though, is people's reaction to rain. We desperately need it, but as soon as we get it, people start complaining! Already this morning i've had one person say 'i wish this rain would stop!' UNBELIEVABLE!

In sickness and sickness
No, they're not some strange vows; i'm now into my fourth week of being sick, and it's really starting to annoy me. I'm still at work, but i'm unable to have a conversation without having a coughing fit. I can't laugh without having a coughing fit. And, my body is so sore from all the coughing that every time i cough my body feels like it's going to explode!!
