I don’t like talking too much about the weather here.
Well, I mean, I DO like talking about the weather, obviously. I AM British, after all. I would actually start an entire blog dedicated to the weather, if I thought I could get away with it. It could be called “It Rained Again Today”. Mind you, that would be the content of every post, as well as being the title, so maybe not.
What I mean is that I don’t like talking too much about the weather HERE, because there’s really nothing more boring than hearing about other people’s weather, is there? From this, you can probably deduce that I’m about to talk about the weather, and you’re totally right: go to the top of the class!
I’ve written a bit in the past about how depressed I get in the winter, due to the very short daylight hours, but I guess the one thing about that is that at least it’s to be expected. You EXPECT it to be dark and dreary in the winter; you DON’T so much expect it to be dark and dreary in May, though, so when winter decided to just stick around this year, I have to admit it was a bit of a struggle. This month has been wet, miserable, and so cold that last week I had to talk myself out of buying a winter coat on eBay. (I still kind of regret not doing it, to be completely honest. You can always use a winter coat, can’t you? Especially here in the land of permanent winter…)
As you can probably guess from the photo, however, yesterday the clouds finally parted, and I can’t tell you how much better I felt because of it. I was up before the alarm for once, out walking Rubin in the sunshine, and then later changing into this H&M skirt (Which is one of four I have in this exact style now. I may have a slight problem. Also a lot of skirts.) and not feeling like I was going to freeze to death, like I usually do. Happy days, people. Because all you really need is a sunny day and a skirt with pockets: here’s hoping there will be many more of them.
(P.S. I can’t speak for the weather, but I CAN guarantee there will be many, MANY more skirts with pockets. Oh yes.)
