Our last week in Copenhagen was quite cool. "It is good" I told S as we put jackets on over t-shirts "we will be all aclimatised for when we get home". WRONG! A nippy breeze and grey skies do not aclimatise you for -5 degree mornings and days where the apparent temperature is 4.5. The weather man tells me that this is a particularly cold winter and my toes tell me that too as they struggle to thaw out.
But every year at this time, when I'm feeling like it will never warm up again, spring starts to raise its head. I've spotted the first blossom trees, the daffodils by my front window are budding up and the wattle is coming out. Spring is coming, I've just got to survive the rest of winter first!
