Chillier than thou

As I said to Stellou tonight, maybe my age is showing, but I swear I never had to start using a proper scarf (not just a dainty fashion one) in October when I was living in Chicago. Comparing temperatures alone, it's not any colder here in London, but without the scarf, the chill nips insistently at your neck and then rapidly worms its way right through you.

Earlier in the conversation, I'd mentioned that my friend Dave is in Berlin now, and her husband had described the cold in Berlin as "attacking you" --- complete with tiger-claws gesture.

I went out and bought more sweaters last week, but maybe I need a couple more.

I would rather have the cold London weather than suffer through the muggy haziness we are enduring in Singapore!

Agree! Except maybe for the 20 minutes I spent standing in the cold, waiting for a bus.

Hope the air clears up in Singapore soon. :(

But scarves are so fashionable! Perhaps I am now French but I like to wear my scarves all the time, even light summer scarves for the evening. When you really start suffering, I highly suggest getting some merino wool undergarments. I have silk underwear too. Dressing in nice woolly clothes and getting all snug is part of the fun. Enjoy!!
