I've been very remiss recently in not reminding myself on Thursdays that I have a life for which I should be very thankful.
It can be no secret to my readers that I dislike the cold. I've been listening to the weather forecast and the presenter said that the nights would be very warm and muggy in much of England.
Here on Lewis the nights are quite chilly even on the warmest days and I can sleep easily and snugly under my duvet.
Would I trade a cool bedroom for hot days? Here in the UK that's a difficult one. In New Zealand if it gets intolerably warm at bedtime I just give The Cottage a cool blast with the air conditioning. Here the idea of having air conditioning is not something that has ever entered my head.
So today I'm thankful for the weather I have (regardless what I might say next time on a midsummer day I have to put two extra layers of clothes on).
