The first job I did in this country was a warehouse job in a freezer. Back in August, we were warned that the temperature would be somewhat extreme at 5 degrees Celsius.
If you don't understand the metric system then let me summarize by saying this is just five degrees away from the freezing point of water. At the time, that was extremely cold because it was the most cold I have ever experienced but little did I know that that was only the tip of the iceberg, no pun intended.
Today, the temperature dropped below zero degrees for the first time and we're ow getting proper hints of a very cold winter. There are some predictions that we'll have snow in Nottingham and for that I say, fuck my life.
I thought I'd be excited about snow but it is coming at such a tedious period in my life. Where is good old global warming when you need it?
Dealing with the weather has largely involved layering tops but it's starting to seem like the time has come to start layering trousers as well because my legs get cold. Once again, with no pun intended, I have cold feet and the cold scares me.
