To be glad it’s cold and wet?

I have been waiting for the whole of September for it to finally feel like autumn! I was getting so fed up of being hot and sweaty- it’s September, I want to be in jumpers and scarves and boots! I feel so cosy when it’s grey and wet outside. Obviously I don’t want it to piss it down all the time, but I don’t mind the odd bit of rain. And I definitely prefer the cold and the dark (great, I’ve made myself sound like some sort of sewer creature).

I love the calmness of autumn & winter. I find summer too intense- not just the heat but the fact that there’s so much going on all the time, it gets too much for me. I work in an industry that changes noticeably with the seasons. There’s less going on in the colder months, less stuff to go wrong, so less stress for me.

I have genuinely noticed how much better a mood I’ve been in the last couple of days since it’s gone cooler.

I went out to bring the bin in after putting DD to bed tonight and I just took in a breath and realised that the air smelled like autumn. It was colder and just had that scent to it. I love autumn so this has made me happy!

Not at all, I’ve had the best day all warm and cosy rather than hot and bothered!!

I loveeee autumn. I went out for a walk in the rain and wind today (very carefully as I've recently been diagnosed with ms) and it was heaven!. I hate the heat, always makes me feel disoriented and miserable

Well I don’t love it, but one benefit is getting rid of the millions of daddy long legs which have been floating into our house.

Am extremely pleased that the hammering rain is dashing all the horrible crane flies to bits.

I like the clothes and the coziness but HATE the rain. Give me freezing cold over rain any day.

Lots of autumn lovers here, welcome! Glad it’s not just me grin

@georgarina oh yes I’d rather it was just dry and cold but the occasional heavy rainfall makes me feel at peace with the world

You are wrong

Flufferty Tue 28-Sep-21 21:16:02

I like the cold weather. A pair of jeans, a warm juniper and some boots are heaven

SylvanasWindrunner Tue 28-Sep-21 21:16:11

I don't much like rain during the day, but in the evenings and overnight I really like hearing it on the windows while I'm warm inside.

Hotpinkangel19 Tue 28-Sep-21 21:16:20

Yes!!!! I love this time of year!

TurnUpTurnip Tue 28-Sep-21 21:16:24

Yes me too, I love the autumn/ winter, I can’t stand summer, when we had that hot weather I was literally thinking it’s too late now! 😒 I don’t want a heat wave in September

Qwaffee Tue 28-Sep-21 21:16:37

I love love love the autumn! Cosy jumpers, scarves, boots, snuggly coats, beautiful colours on walks, conkers, acorns, candles ..... the list goes on!

I feel so cosy when it’s grey and wet outside.

Well I work full time in the office so cosy isn’t the wordgrin I look and feel like a drowned rat

TheSpottedZebra Tue 28-Sep-21 21:16:42

Arf at 'sewer creature' grin
And yay to no more daddy long-legs!

I don't mind the cooler wweather but not this bit where you can smell the decay in the air.

Unfortunately I've noticed my Seasonal Affective Disorder starting to kick in today - roll on spring!

PartyPotato Tue 28-Sep-21 21:17:06

@TurnUpTurnip I’ve been so angry it’s been hot in September I’ve wanted to complain to the weather manager grin

I hate rain and I unfortunately live in what feels like the worlds rainiest place. I’m glad it’s not so humid now. I just hate rain and cold. I don’t mind proper, crisp frosty days but here it’s just damp, gloomy and miserable until next year. It’s a depressing thought TBH.

@Flev oh I’m sorry, that’s why I wondered if it was unreasonable to be happy about the ‘‘miserable weather’’, as I know it can really affect people.

I love autumn too

It's definitely transitioning atm

Zotter Tue 28-Sep-21 21:20:15

I am now counting months down to spring, hate short, wet, grey dismal days of autumn and winter.

PartyPotato Tue 28-Sep-21 21:21:25

I’m still sleeping with the bedroom window open, as I like to be extra cold at night. And then I wonder why I’ve got a cold and a bad chest.
