I would love to go back to my school and kick the geography teacher in the behind. He told us the Mediterranean climate was hot dry summers and warm wet winters. He was right about the wet but I am freezing.
I have used more wood this winter than ever before in about eleven winters in Greece, partly I am sure because I feel the cold now I am older and also because the temperature has been much lower than usual. Sitting by the wood burner now with the electric blanket warming my bed. Bit sad I suppose when that is one of life’s pleasures!
