    For us, one of life's pleasures is chilling out at night in the lounge of our lovely quaint little lodge house, candles lit and house decorated all Chrismassy, wood burner roaring away, a glass of something nice to drink in our hands, and some quality choons playing!

    Christmas aside, doing that in the spring isn't the same, as the vibe isn't right. You need the weather outside to be cold and horrible, so that you feel nice and cosy and wrapped up indoors

    I quite like the feeling of being nice and cosy indoors with candles lit and such like but to be honest I come alive again in the spring/summer months as I'm a bit of a sun worshiper to be honest..

    That's cool, but I'm the complete opposite... When it's really hot and sunny, you'll find me sitting in the shade sipping a cool beer, or indoors with the curtains drawn and an electric fan on, keeping the sun out and room cool, doing the same!

    Besides, extended sun bathing isn't good for you, especially given what we know now about skin cancer...

    Like Geoff I'm running down the freezer as I've got a new one coming Monday and as it's an integrated unit it takes a while to fit. I found some cod in parsley sauce buried in the ice berg so had that tonight with lovely buttery mashed potato. Mia the cat had Felix salmon with green beans in jelly and as a treat she also had a small tin of tuna. Not too sure whether she's a cat or a furry piglet.
    I've lived on my own pretty much since I left home back in 1982, suits me most of the time, I was even a bit of a loner as a kid. Given all that it's funny how I had no problem standing up in front of a couple of thousand people playing the bass and singing in a rock band....thems were the days

    I know it's not good for me but I love the heat... I've always been an outside sort of person and the spring/summer allows me to be out there getting brown.. Actually living on the coast I never loose my tan even in the winter months

    Spring and autumn for me . if weather is ok the summer is nice up here as it's usually not too hot. Don't mind winter in the get black moods way but I can't get out as much so that is a factor to the minus.
    Ive got my films and tv series etc plus music so get by. Plus I make more food dishes in winter

    **I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    **Hate makes you impotent, Love makes you crazy. Somewhere in the middle you can survive.**

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    ***SMILE, BE HAPPY***

    I'm a bit like you when the weather heats up, I just lollop about with the fans going and trying to do as little as possible. Part of my medical issues is my body struggles to regulate body temperature so I always feel warm, good in the winter though ha.
