If my fingers require defrosting upon reentering the flat, then it was too cold to be outside.
I don’t care what the thermometer says, nor the little man on my weather app. My fingers should not be getting that cold and painful. Especially not when I already have two layers of gloves.
How Thing 1’s fingers managed to still be warm and toasty I have no idea, but once I’d persuaded my fingers to cooperate enough to help him take his gloves off that’s what I found. Lovely warm little baby fingers in contrast to the frozen sausages that were attached to my hands.
I dislike the cold. You might have noticed with all the complaining about the weather I’ve been doing these past few days!
