The weather has taken a turn for the f-f-f-freezing this past week or so, and on quite a few mornings we've woken up to thick fog. I rugged up yesterday morning (two pairs of pants, thermal top, hoodie, parka, scarf, beanie) and took myself off for a walk anyway. It was eerily quiet - as it is when foggy - and there weren't many people about. 

I did manage to startle this guy though:

This morning, the mercury plummeted to just a smidge above zero. This does not please me. After (another) night of disturbed sleep, the idea of exchanging my warm bed and a potential extra hour's sleep for a spin bike at the chilly gym was about as appealing as prising out my toenails with a pair of pliers. So I stayed put.

Of course, that means that I will have to resist the urge to park my butt on the couch tonight and get the old body moving when I get home from work. I'm thinking foam roller, some rehab exercises, a little resistance work and then a stint on the spin bike.

Tell me I'm not the only one struggling with this cold weather...

Kek, I'm sick of having numb toes despite wearing tights or thickish socks to work every day. I walk 20 mins from my car to the office and its enough to freeze my extremeties. Maybe I'll wear my fur lined boots and change into my heels at work????

Sounds reasonable to me, Magda. I found 200 denier tights with a brushed lining at the supermarket. Wearing them today!

Although I love all things winter fashion I certainly don't miss the winter weather in Melbourne. *brrr*

There are two things I hate about my home town, Lia - winter and the traffic. Other than those, melbourne is pretty much perfect. :)
