It has been pretty much freezing all through the end of December and almost the whole of January, save for these last few days. And in these few days heating has become a major issue over here. Before I get into it, just a little bit of background; husband goes to uni everyday and has recently taken to cycling to get there what with the busses being unreliable and what not. But his cycling basically means that he is almost conditioned to the freezing weather conditions. Yes, he cycles even though it's single digits or into the negatives. Me on the other hand, I'm huddled in my blankets and just hibernating waiting for the sun to start shining. And of course, with the electric heaters going strong.
The problem always starts when husband gets back; he'll start walking around the house and turning off all the electric heaters. And trailing behind him, huddled in blankets and sweaters, would be me. Turning on all the heaters that husband so conveniently turn off. It even got to a point where I got so mad at him. Imagine, waking up at 6.30ish am to say our morning prayers and even before you touch the water to do your wudhu (ablution) and your already shivering. And once you're done you're experiencing bone rattling shivers that you can't stand still while saying your prayers. You feel exactly like a rattling bag of bones, ya know, just like 'em cartoons. The worst part ould be when husband in his overly sweet voice would ask me, 'Honey, are you feeling cold?'. Eh, nooooooo I'm just trying to lose some weight by this au natural 'shivering' method! We have even argued about the heat, I kid you not. I can't help it; it was so uncomfortable I couldn't even sleep properly!
Gah…the cold has been driving me crazy! Honestly I really really can't wait for sunshiny weather! Please, God send me some sunshine. Stat! Pronto! Pretty please??(!)
