Big chill

Filed under: Atmosphere — bitchontheblog @ 21:11

I need to defrost. A long winter has left me frozen to the bone. Between my shoulder blades. I feel colder than I ever thought possible. Not my feet, not my hands. Between my shoulder blades. I am nothing without layers round my shoulders. Ridiculous state of affairs.

Yes, so here I am lamenting, at your assorted shoulders, with my duvet wrapped around me. How much more pathetic is it possible to be? Answer that question at your peril.

God damn it. Is this what life boils down to? Simmer at a chill?



  1. You need the warmth of the sun Ursula x

  2. We had a sudden cold snap after a couple of gorgeous days. It feels like betrayal. Blooms on fruit trees have been frost bitten, as have the grape vines. Betrayal indeed.

    • My dear Renee, my mother made the same lament the other day. One moment the sun shines, the next all your hopes of ‘blooms’ are dashed. Still, nature will rear its head undiminished, full of hope. By way of reassuring her, and she was touched, I told her that weeds cannot be kept down. I was referring to her and (by proxy and genetics) me. Think dandelion.She laughed, though probably didn’t think it that funny.

  3. Face it. You are no longer a spring chicken.

    • It’s spring. And I have never been chicken.

      Going to (stock) pot,
