The Cheat that is..


We woke up to glorious sunshine. What joy! There is something about sun streaming through the windows. It was as if summer was already here! Well, not quite summer, but spring is here for sure!

I made plans to pack away our winter coats – those horrid warm coats, without which life here is miserable in winter. But those coats also mean that half our clothes are hidden behind those voluminous coats, unless you are adventurous enough to do things like this. I think I will certainly be happy to leave behind the English winter for good! All you really want is sunny, gorgeous weather that makes your heart sing with joy.

With summer(and summer clothes) dancing in front of my eyes, I stepped out, dressed in my spring jacket, only to feel the cold hit me – and hit me bad. I did not have the time to change into something warmer – daughter thankfully was dressed more appropriately. I was sure that I would get warmer as we walked to school. In a few minutes, I realized that I was wrong – it was freezing. Daughter pulled out her gloves – yes, it was that cold. She, then, kept my fingers warm by holding on to them – she would change sides every so often – so that my other hand does not freeze. What did I ever do to deserve a child like this, I don’t know πŸ™‚

By the time we reached school, I was freezing, despite all of daughter’s efforts, and all I could do was somehow walk back home, cursing myself, and promising myself that never again, am I going to be taken in by this deceptive weather!!!!!

It is still sunny, and gorgeous, but I refuse to get cheated again. I plan to step out fully prepared. But what do I know? In all probability, when I go dressed like an eskimo, it will be so warm that I will have to pull off layers 😦 I tell you, this spring is a big cheat!

PS: I also realized that ever since winter has been on it’s way out – I have also stopped checking the weather reports – it must be weather god’s way of teaching me a lesson.

  1. Ouch! I can imagine the hurt this sort of cheating by the weather would have caused 😦

  5. Awwww @ Poohi protecting you. THat’s so sweet and adorable! πŸ™‚

    I know… it just sucks when you think the day will be gloriously warm and sunny, but it is cold instead. 😦

    PS: Bangalore is so warm and sunny these days that it is difficult to believe that it is Bangalore. πŸ™‚ You will love it when you are here. You’ll be in Bangalore, right?

  6. Hahahah been there, done that. This was a constant all through my days in UK.
    The sky would be blue, the clouds floating by gently, and the sunshine would be so bright that it could hurt one’s eyes. The room inside would be toasty warm due to the heating, hence one would not know the difference while sitting inside.

    The moment you step out…..a blast of freezing cold air hits you. And you are running inside for your life, scrambling to change into your gloves and coat and shoes! πŸ˜†

  7. Poohi the lovable and caring daughter.. I have asked myself many times “What did I ever do to deserve a child like this”.. we are blessed πŸ™‚
