#SoCS Sept. 23/17 – Hot/Cold

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “hot/cold.” Use one, use both, bonus points if you start your post with one and end with the other. Enjoy!

Cold feet are something I really cannot abide!

When it gets to the winter months I am the one with the socks on constantly, and at night I need my hot water bottle, regardless of what anyone else says!

Woe betide, Hubby Dearest if he gets in and rests his cold feet against my legs!

The kids are like me too. They crave the heat of a rubber bottle full of hot water in their beds to warm it before slipping under the covers at night.

But equally, when it comes to the heat of the summer (Shush, I know I live in England, the land of the rainy summer, but we do have heat here on occasion!) I find I cannot get on with the hot weather!

I literally melt!

Seriously, I am not kidding!

It’s why I was happy to get married in November because, in the heat, makeup slips off me. At least I knew I would continue to look relatively graceful for the day, rather than a clown with mascara and eyeliner running down my face!

And cold feet are not something I worry about in the summer either because I go from ice block to furnace!

For me, my footwear of choice in the summer months would be Fitflops because my feet end up radiating heat and I end up flustered and hot!

    My husband is so hot (haha) that sleeping with him is like sleeping next to a six-foot water bottle! lol When he leaves in the morning, it’s often the cold that wakes me 🙂
    I got married in August, but it was in the shade and 82/27 and ironically MUCH cooler than it is here today!
    I’ve always thought I’d like English weather. 🙂

    Nice post and response, Ritu. I agree with wanting warm feet in the winter, but I can’t stand to wear socks to bed, so… I also agree with the too-hot weather. I’m not a fan of 90 and humidity. It means that the windows have to close and the A/C turned on. When it’s summer, I want to breathe the outside air!
