Son got his ice cream today. I got myself a slush puppy. The weather was that cold that the slushy never melted – 2 hours later it was still good to go.

Speaking to a local even he said “That sea wind is brutal today”

When I took my coat and gloves off I was like an ice cube.

On the drive back I had the heater on full blast. Still cold.

Needed the hottest of hot baths.

Have you ever been that cold that when you get into a steaming hot bath – you’re body is that frozen that within a couple of minutes the bath is only lukewarm.

Son was fine he stayed in the warm car watching downloaded movies. Can you work out what film he made me watch tonight … Ice Age.

  1. Oh the joy of children!!!! We had an 5.9 earthquake in our town several years ago. I was at a ladies meeting and my husband was gone also. We came home, walked in the door, and the boys were sitting on the couch watching TV. I said, “Do you know we had an earthquake?”
    They said, “Yeah, we know. Mom, can you move? You’re blocking the TV.” They were watching some program or another! We live in one reality…they live in another! ๐Ÿ˜

    1. I had to laugh when you mentioned a 5.9 earthquake. Earthquakes are so common here that we are somewhat blasรฉ about them unless it results in actual building collapse or a change in land contour. I’ve experienced several at around 7, and at that level, running or even walking is impossible – you need to resort to crawling to move to safety. Personally I enjoy the adrenaline rush, and find the reactions of others during an earthquake interesting to watch ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The innocence of Youth! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It is a fun movie though! – there’s still II, III and IV to go.

    To warm up a bit i suggest watching the movie with an ice cube…

    … that has had two fingers of a fine single malt poured over it….

    … preferably while in a glass tumbler.

    (None for the boy!!!) ๐Ÿ™‚

    (and in answer to your bath question: No! Never! Ever!) : >

  3. Oh my gosh – I bet you were frozen. That is my go to move too when I am chilled to the bone. A hot bath. I think it is crazy too how lukewarm the water gets. Declan is the same way with the temps – he doesn’t really feel pain either. I always associated that with his senses being so different. It is in the sixties where we are, but still chilly and didn’t he decide to go in the ocean yesterday. I had to practically drag him out – he was fine spending the whole day in the frigid water. And I am sure he is going to try and get back in it today and it is even cooler out.
