Two things happened this morning. One was I woke up with a very sore head. I went out for one of a managers leaving do yesterday to say goodbye and we had a few too many beers. The second thing was hearing the sound of rain hitting the window, and it made me put on my coat and have a walk.


This for me is perfect hangover weather. Cool, refreshing, relaxing. I don’t mind this kind of weather at all, no matter how I’m feeling.

It also reminds me of home…

  1. At this point, I’ll take any temperature in the double digits :/
    (It’s only mildly uncomfortable, I love it, but I’m afraid in the time it takes me to bundle up, I’m definitely going to be late!)

      1. Neither have I haha. Celsius makes too much sense to give up, 0 is freezing, 100 is boiling. Easy!

        However stating that you will take any temperature in double digits… I would say that for Fahrenheit only xD

      2. That’s literally how the scale was set: on the centigrade scale, the guy (I forget his name, apologies,) arbitrarily set zero to be the boiling point of water and 100 to be the melting point of ice in a measure of how ‘cold’ it was. They flipped it later; 0 for a melt and 100 for the boiling point, and we’ve stuck with it ever since!

        But for someone quite used now to no less than twenty degrees—Celsius—and who hasn’t seen the cold in like fifteen years, I’m really asking for double digits on the Celsius scale! It’s around 9 degrees here, tantalisingly close to the doubles, but not quite there, and I’ve forgotten my jacket at home 🙁

      3. Looking on Wikipedia it seems it was Jean- Pierre Christin… I did not know that it was reversed! That’s pretty cool info. It also states about Centigrade/Celsius- ‘Before being renamed to honor Anders Celsius in 1948, the unit was called centigrade, from the Latin centum, which means 100, and gradus, which means steps.’

  2. Cool and refreshing is always good! London is going through an uncharacteristically hot autumn and it’s actually unnerving. I want frosts and swirling mists, not t-shirts and flip flops!

    1. Haha, I am sure that will come soon enough to London 🙂 I heard it has been a great summer over there… I bet everyone has been loving it!
