Cold out isn't it?



YES, it IS cold.


This is the deal people. Saturday heralds the start of a new month, known as December. December is notorious for Christmas, (my birthday) and being slap BANG in the centre of a little something I like to call, WINTER.

I am in shock, that you are in shock, that it is cold outside at the moment.

If only you could Instagram a temperature I am sure that my feed would be full of pictures of COLD at the moment. (If you could instagram a cold kitten then I would be grateful. Ta)

I don't really get to talk to many people on a daily basis (Just the way I like it) but the people I do pass on the street seem to have an opening line at the moment that is making my teeth itch.

"Cold enough for ya?"


"Why no, actually it isn't. I much prefer my temperatures arctic thanks"

It is the first thing out of everyones mouth lately. I now know how cab drivers feel when they pick up a new fare.

"Busy night driver?"

"What time do you finish?"

(Next time you get in the cab, listen to yourself. You WILL ask those questions)


I'm thinking of answering peoples questions about the cold before they even ask them. I will wait until they open their mouth and just reply "Luckily, here in London our temperatures are a little warmer than anywhere else at the moment, imagine living in Scotland or somewhere like that"

Which will be a bugger if they were just going to ask me the time.


So everyone, YES, it is cold. YES, you need a coat. YES, I wish I was indoors too. And NO, I don't care who wins I'm A Celebrity.


Now on with your day people.


And wrap up warm,


It's cold outside.

  1. I totally get where you're coming from... BUT people DO like using the weather as a talking point right?!? I often use the weather as a conversation starter alot - either via twitter, facebook or face to face! we can always find common ground when it comes to the weather.

    I will shut up now....

    Oh yeah, be warned... it's cold out

  2. Ah people have always used the weather as a conversation starter. I don't mind it, especially after being told once by an old lady "It's cold enough to freeze the drippings off me nose!" :)
    I quite like this cold weather, it's a gorgeous day out there today....oh crap, I'm making your teeth itchy. ;)

  3. Yeah you southern softies have no idea what real cold is. Try standing in Edinburgh as you turn a corner and the wind from the river hits you like a sledgehammer. Rather unpleasant. Plus last year I was in the Alps and bottom temp was -23 during the day! It was very,very cold!! I felt a bit sick.

  4. I think people use the weather as a conversation starter. I don't think anybody actually cares about the weather. Its what i like to call Chuffa. Its conversation to fill the time before asking relevant and worthwhile questions.
    Imagine it in a film. A Bruce Willis style character enters a room to approach somebody but doesn't want to shout out the actual reason first. So he'll waltz in and go
    "hey, nice weather today"
    "yeah its-"
    "ALRIGHT FUCKER! Where the bomb???!!"

    So what Im trying to say Kellie is that the next time somebody asks about the weather just ask where the bomb is!.............actually that wasn't my point at all.

    I don't have a point. I just don't know what to........ermmm........cold innit?

  7. Kelly, I've got some bad news for you, only the East coast of Scotland appears significantly colder than the rest of the UK and that is due to windchill rather than actual temperature differences. Scotland is not above the Arctic circle and it does annoy me when people say things like "ooh it's chilly here but it must be freezing in Scotland!"
    But other than that, I agree with you. It might be cold but it's almost December, hardly groundbreaking news!!

  9. I really hate where all people can talk about is the weather, yes I moan it's cold, but I don't want a stranger or even someone I know reminding me, and making stupid small talk. I usually just ignore people that say this, rude, but it helps me hold on to my sanity

  10. This is the best time for me... As for my sins (didn't try hard enough at school) I work in a jewellers - cue EVERY customer in through the door "nice & warm in here, freeeezing out" = *smug face*... BUT in summer - cue EVERY customer "such a lovely day out" = me pouting looking out of many unopenable windows for 9 hours... Bore Off... Though I do ponder what could be a better opener to chatting... Right now I'd go with 'nice rack' ;)

  12. Oh my god can you imagine Ireland if nobody discussed the weather. We'd all be mute. It's an obsession - and not just talking about it, nu-uh. Googling it, watching it - the year of the 'big freeze' it was on the news every single evening. My mother has a weather app. The woman that thinks Sky Plus is something worthy of a Dan Brown novel has a bloody weather app!
