Brrrrr!  
Dear England,
I have found your cold!

Do you mind if we hold onto it for a little longer? as everyone is looking great in their scarves and the local homeless are well-rugged.

I don't remember the last Sydney 5 degree morning (I am in what is referred to as the coastal strip, despite being a few miles from any seawater.) The only downside is that it leads to being stuck in bed with cats pressed against the legs for warmth -- theirs rather than mine -- and god forbid one should wish to turn over!

Anyway, do enjoy the warmth, and be sure to send it home around August. Though if you would like to keep a bit in reserve for December and January, I am sure that no one here would mind!

XXX
B

No, no, take it back, England /o\

Sorry! I forgot you chaps were so much more extreme, yet with similarly awful insulation. I think Melburnians should be able to store some of their insane summer days to take the edge of the winters.

England can keep it until September I think and then return it in late January.

We got our first proper frost 2 days ago and last night was the first night I was actually cold all night. It was glorious!

I have just re-read my first sentence and I think I have it backwards...I want the cold to stay until September and then return again slowly, from late January onwards.

Been down in the minuses for the past couple of nights here and it's too bloody cold. I've had to light the fire mid-morning. bah. And then when morning does come the fog settles in around here until next week, when it might lift for half an hour. I've been putting off lighting the fire here today and am rugged up in clothes (duh) and my dressing gown, plus am wrapped up in a sleeping bag of all things, lol. Most of me is toasty warm, except my fingers and face. *am off to light the fire now. Talking about it made me shiver all over*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 29th, 2010 05:15 am (UTC)
Oh lambchop! Should I send gloves? I have a spare pair of fingerless gauntlets that I will never wear again: I can seriously post them down to you if you email me an addy! You can type in them, and all!

I'm perfectly happy for England to have its cold back - its been decidedly nippy here, -4 overnight, two nights running, actually had to put the car in the garage today so I don't have to scrape ice off again in the morning....
And still trying to recover from plague, a bit of sunshine and warmth would be lovely at present.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 29th, 2010 09:06 am (UTC)
Alas, I cannot help with the sunshine. Want some fingerless gloves? And actually, I have a really cute Wayne Cooper knit top that has texture thanks to a series of diamonds all over it, which I thought I would be thin enough for again, but am not. You on the other hand, are! Light enough to be an undertop, or to wear over something else and shed later. It would make me happy to find a home for it!

Okay. We should probably keep it until mid-July, but then we would like to give it back.

HOW DID YOU SLEEP?

I'd have needed earplugs under earmuffs ;-)

Yeah, I have to say it is a nice shock to actually need my European warm stuff down here. The other winter I pulled out my medium-weight coat for exactly one day.

I hope this doesn't mean next summer will be like the one before last, with maxima of 38-42 day after day. Last summer had ridiculously high minima, but it was only a few degrees hotter through the day.

Dude, we want some of it back! It's too freaking hot here! *is melting, MELTING*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 29th, 2010 09:31 am (UTC)
It is seriously as though five degrees have gone walkabout from here to there! Madness! Let me know if you need sunblock recommendations, I have the expertise!

I'm enjoying it so much. And hoping we can keep some for summer.

*giggles* The comments on this post are amazing
lokifanlokifan on June 29th, 2010 11:52 pm (UTC)
NO, GIVE IT BACK. Here, have your heat! I'm sure you'll deal with it much more gracefully than we do.

:) I have that problem in winter myself!

*sends you some heat from Malaysia* It's been scorching lately. *pets you*
bare_memabonwitch on June 30th, 2010 05:20 am (UTC)
It's properly summer here; it was a scorching 103F the other day. *is sunburnt* I'm not good at telling when to re-apply sunscreen, alas. Also, leather jackets for gay Pride and 90 degree weather do not go together.
