I can’t tell you how many times we have checked the weather forecast this week. It has been an emotional roller-coaster. One minute good, the next not so good.
The only thing that has remained consistent is the temperature, and that is cold!!
Here is what it looks like according to seabreeze:
When I was at university I learned about Seasonal Affective Disorder. In short, it is believed that some people’s moods are affected by the seasons. Like a seasonal depression.
We both definitely suffer from S.A.D. Getting out of bed in the mornings is just that little bit harder. Wearing so many layers of clothes is a pain. Anything more than a t-shirt is unacceptable, and in Ryan’s case that’s even pushing it.
Luckily it is just a cold “snap” and the temperatures will go up slightly next week. Anything in the “teens” is still too cold if you ask me… Only 2.5 months until we escape to Samoa.
Will we survive 2.5 months of “winter”?We always do.
Will we whinge? Definitely. Consider yourselves lucky that we don’t live in an even colder climate with a longer winter.
This weekend we have gone in search of better weather. Without having to go too far, our destination is the Gold Coast. Their forecast is slightly better (not by much) for our aching to get out on the water and do some spearfishing…. And 2 degrees warmer in the morning!!
Here is the forecast for the Gold Coast:
