Inspired by the other thread grin
All those in favour of 'cosy hot chocolate snuggles on a duvet day' say aye

Aye, aye! I loathe beaches. All that sand.
I hate hot weather, the heat, the itchiness and the discomfort. I had a wonderful walk in the gusty wind today! Bliss.

jennie0412 Mon 26-Oct-20 15:22:10

Yes! I only really open my bedroom curtains (where I spend most of my time) when it's rainy and gloomy, very calming smile

I dont get holidays abroad.beach/sand grates on me. I onky like the beach when its stormy and cold.

Ive just been for a windy walk on Snowdon. Saw no one -bliss. Just me and the wind and showers.

Now home, lit the fire, roast dinner laters with a glass of red.

The rain has been battering on the windows all day, it's very relaxing.
Just you and me, Jennie, it would seem!

Maireas Mon 26-Oct-20 15:37:36

Oooh, sheknowsaboutme as well!

Dowser Mon 26-Oct-20 15:37:44

jennie0412 Mon 26-Oct-20 15:37:58

Me!! I love rain. Makes me feel so calm and happy. Heat and sun can do one

DramaAlpaca Mon 26-Oct-20 15:40:15

Yes me. If the heat goes over about 24 degrees I'm uncomfortable. Give me a cool spring day or cosy autumn one every time.

And I detest beaches. Now my kids are grown up I no longer need to tolerate them.

Shayisgreat Mon 26-Oct-20 15:40:57

I'm ok with heat but I hate the sun! It makes me squint and I dislike sun cream. My perfect day is when it's cloudy and grey.

jennie0412 Mon 26-Oct-20 15:41:08

It's supposed to be raining all day tomorrow! I will be sueing if it isn't!

My curtains are closed on sunny days and opened wide when it’s wet or cloudy. My retirement fantasy is to move somewhere with lots of fog. I get ridiculously grumpy in the summer.

nosswith Mon 26-Oct-20 15:41:50

Not keen on most beaches, but count me out for the hot chocolate and sat in a chair with a duvet.

RachelRosie Mon 26-Oct-20 15:41:51

I've met my people. I actually celebrate the 1st September because I know that beautiful cold Autumn weather is on it's way. Have spent the last few night's researching our next big holiday... to Lapland!

MrsAvocet Mon 26-Oct-20 15:42:24

I don't like it too hot as I'm a red head and burn very easily. I do like beaches to walk on, particularly when they are empty and remote, but I don't understand how anyone could enjoy lying on one all day. I can put up sitting by a pool on on the beach with a good book for an hour or two at the absolute maximum but then I get bored. I would hate to go to one of those resorts you see on tiny islands with just the hotel and a beach. No matter how white the sand and how clear the water it would be torture for me and I would probably be looking around for some sea turtles to tie together as a raft to make my escape.

jennie0412 Mon 26-Oct-20 15:42:24

@Terrace58 me too! I brought black out curtains a while ago with the intention of it just blocking out the sun until I'm ready to open them in the morning...
They're only opened when it's raining or at night time blush

I've found my people! I love it when the clocks go back.

Sheknowsaboutme Mon 26-Oct-20 15:58:58

He he😝

I love autumn and winter.

I’m also loving Christmas 24 on sky🎅🏼

jennie0412 Mon 26-Oct-20 16:03:44

I love root vegetable soups, hot chocolate, roast dinners, proper heavy puddings and endless cups of teas..

Not so much lemonade, watermelon and ice pops envy (not envy)

I'm happiest in autumn. I hate feeling sweaty, sticky and drained. I look better in winter clothing.

EerilyDeleted Mon 26-Oct-20 16:23:18

Well, I'm on the other thread too because I hate dark evenings and all this snuggling stuff. But I also hate the feel of sun on my skin, beaches unless I'm in the shade and there's a breeze and anything over 23° is too hot. May and September are the best months for me.
