It’s cold today. I’m cold. It’s raining pretty hard too. Today is the coldest I’ve felt in a while. We’ve had a pretty wonderful summer in the UK this year, or we have in my neck of the woods at least. We’ve actually had sun, and heat. I love the warm weather. I don’t do well in the cold. It makes me seize up, makes my muscles tighter, and makes the aches and pains that come along with my Cerebral Palsy that little bit more prominent and that little bit worse. It might be getting closer to the season to be jolly, but in Nic Land tis already the season to get working extra hard on my stretches to keep my muscle tightness at bay.
This morning I got up, got dressed, put my dressing gown back on and got back into bed with my laptop to write this post and work on editing my novel and keep warm. It’s probably not that cold really, but I’m also full of cold so I’m probably feeling it a bit more.
If my mum were home, she’d probably tell me to put the heating on, but I think I’ll just stay in my cocoon for now. I’m not too tight today as it happens, but today I am reminded that winter will be here before too long.
