Take the Weather....

It is a cold day here, the first of Jan is the equivalent of the 1st of July in British seasons. But it is colder than I remember any English July day ever being, and that is saying something. Folks here don't believe in contral heating so I am snuggled up with a sweater or by a single radiator. It cold very well be an English New Years Day!

Reminds me of a song by Crowded House...'Everywhere you go, always take the.......'

So far Weather in the city of Wellies is worse than any English weather I recall in an earlyish summer. C'est la. If it was a hot day (as it was the day before yesterday) it may not match my mood as I was homesick with all that implies (yep, including the British winter). As they say, be careful what you wish for! If I don't have London't scenery at least I have it's seasonal weather.

Makes me think of another song, it was called 'Winter in July'. I forget who it was by though.

Happy New Year Liz.

Very sorry to hear that things have 'reached the point of estrangement'. I didn't mean to suggest that you have been a less than perfect guest - I can have no knowledge of that, of course. I have tried to offer some perspective as I figure it would be easier coming from a completely independent source such as myself rather than your friends back home who might find it hard to do other than agree that none of it is your fault.

All families have their own quirks, of course, and for me even a couple of weeks with Mrs Umpire's parents in the Home Counties makes me rather homesick (for my London Pavilion, that is). And there have been a few strains, to say the least, when my parents have stayed with us.

Once you're travelling again by yourself things should pick up, as should the weather as you go further north.

In time you will only really remember the good bits, particularly as you move on in life, in or outside relationships.

All the best,

P-Ump

Chin up, LIz. I second Polit Ump's thoughts.

Wrap up warm Liz and hope things get better. Unlike P Ump and James I'm not going to offer any useful advice just sympathy and good luck.

It's pretty cold here too, I see you have some familiar bloggers visiting you to warm up your spirit at least.
I thought you might be interested in this follow-up on the prostitutes murder, it really is quite shocking:

Thanks for your support, I really do appreciate it from all of you.

It turns out, Ellee, that it has been so far the coldest December here for 60 years or so. It seems it is unusual.

I'll look at your link in a moment, thanks for that. I'll post a new topic first though!
