Arctic Conditions!!

Just three days after a Halloween with a temperature of 22 degrees celsius and now it’s Arctic! The sharp drop in temp has come as a severe shock to my system to say the least. I have no idea where last winter’s thermals are and I am not looking forward to wearing a dozen layers and looking like a yeti. Last Spring, as the layers came off, a lady bought a magazine from me and then said, “Goodness, I never realised what a small lady you are under all those winter clothes!”. Nice! So anybody meeting me on the bridge in the winter automatically assumes that I am a natural, svelte, size 22!!
Anyway, winter is definitely here, not to disappear again for at least 5 or 6 months and all we vendors have to look forward to is working in the dark for a large chunk of the morning rush-hour and being permanently frozen. Still, at least it’s not long ’til Christmas!
