March 05, 2007
Well it's 3 days and counting 'til we go to New York and now I'm really excited. So excited in fact I thought I'd check out the 5 day weather forecast....the day we arrive it will be -8C!!! sinking to -15C at night; that is bloody cold! I know there's colder places out there and I have experienced some pretty cold times, Pendenis castle is legend amongst a certain group of friends and C and A will recount the bitter cold of Cologne on a Christmas shopping trip. The latter involved copius amounts of Gluhwein which I'm not sure helped keep the cold out but certainly made us try on and buy more shoes than was strictly necessary for a 3 day trip!
In fact as I remember my birthday trip last year to Hampton Court with HP had to be curtailed beacuse of the cold. We managed to get around the palace but decided to leave the gardens because it really was taters, so we found the nearest pub and got some red wine down us while we watched the six nations on the pub TV.
But none of these destinations was as cold as -15C so I'm seriously considering a hasty shopping trip to stock up on thermals!
HP has done a great job this weekend and stayed off the wicked weed! He has been laughing in a maniacal way and shouting at the TV more though, which he puts down to a chemical imbalance...it has been highly amusing though! I'm even more proud of him now and I'm sure he's going to crack it x
