The weather

I was exaggerating but aye, I fucking hate the winter & I doubt my landlord will be up for buying a new boiler.

 

Sitting under a duvet on the couch to watch the telly or listen to music for five months of the year is not my idea of fun.


Winter used to be my favourite time of the year, but I’ve come to hate it. It was great when we had a proper fireplace with an open fire, then, later on, a wood burning stove, as I could come in from the cold and get warm.

 

However, we no longer own our home and are instead living in very average rented accommodation with central heating as the only source of heating. I can’t use central heating at all, as it has an adverse effect on my health, which means I’m constantly cold and miserable. During the day, I’m wearing three hoodies or a big coat, I’m freezing my nuts off whilst showering and shitting, and I’m wearing a wooly hat to bed and sleeping under two 15 tog duvets. It’s shite!

I’m with Mook and Tony, fuck the winter.

 

It was so long and miserable last year that I swore not to complain once during the summer that it was too hot and I kept to that promise. 
 

The cold affects my mood and my MS. I’d gladly hibernate if it was an option. 
 

In our house the heating only needs to be on 18 degrees to have upstairs toasty as fuck. Downstairs, where I spend most of my time, is absolutely Baltic since we put tile floors in. You can genuinely feel the temperature change as you get halfway up the stairs. It’s mad. 
 

Dressing gown, thermal socks and the odd 10 minute blast of the leccy heater.

The thing is, it was bearable 4/5 years ago, you knew you were going home to a warm & cosy house. Before they trebled the cost of heating it.

 

Now we have half the country scared to turn their boiler on. It's fucking grim.

 

I can appreciate a nice winter's day when I'm out and about but as for rejoicing in it, fuck that. Bring on the spring, when I can't see my breath when I'm watching the telly.

Don't be ungrateful there are children in Africa who would give anything to see their breath when they breathe out.

For lots of people in Africa it wouldn't make the blindest bit of difference what their government did. We're the sixth richest country on the planet. There is no fucking excuse for kids going without food and much of the country rationing their heating while it's minus five outside. 

 

Tens of millions of people are just existing/surviving. It's an utterly depressing country.

Absolutely spot on mate, well said.

My bird has crashed my motor on the black ice this morning and now she’s got a cob on with me because I asked if the car was alright first instead of asking about her. 
 

I’m supposed to be driving to Sheffield and back in it tonight for the f***ball. The alternative is my boy driving us up there in his 2002 Toyota Yaris. Not sure that car will survive the journey, to be honest.

Put this in the world of a woman but our grill caught fire last year the Mrs burned her hand. Was telling my mum and her first question was " is your grill pan OK?"
