warm spell now

21 Nov

london 8.40pm 13.9C been raining but stopped now. tuesday 2017

these few days it has been warm. hovering around 11C-14C practically all day , even night. it is due to a plume of warm weather that has moved up north from the atlantic ocean, covering the lower parts of england. it happens because the gulf stream has moved further north of the british isle. it will come down around friday when temp will plunge to the norm.

but as usual the weather forecast starts off by saying it is a miserable morning with rain… haha. they forgot to mention it is warm so not really as miserable as you would think, if u really are living under those rainy skies. the forecasts tend to use words like miserable , to describe the weather. it is very subjective and i would like if they dont use it. they should say it is a lovely wet day today feel the fresh day as rain clears the air  and decorate the leaves with dew drops. 

my friend in poole mentioned how his friend he was visiting has put up the central heating so high, he felt real uncomfortable with the heat, and even got a severe cold when he left but fortunately he said the cold lasted just one day, he took vitC, and he got well again.

i wonder why people got their thermostat so high. if u have to switch it on now, and it is really very early to do so, at least set the thermostat to 18C or lower. but this person is an old man, so it is quite possible he does not know where the controls are to set the thermostat. with these new computer operated boilers, it is perfectly feasible that no one knows how to operate it.

life is really very nice in london hope everyone is having such a nice life like mine.

yesterday i went to that free chicken burger offer in this pop up restaurant in a pub. we are so used to these things going smoothly so it was rather a reality check being reminded that not everyone can organise these things smoothly. the kitchen could not cope and they tell us there will be a half hour break before they can continue taking the orders. i decided to give it a miss and left. but i hope they will have learnt a bit and be more organised the rest of the week. they deserve A for good intentions. it is not easy for us to remember that it takes alot of organising to make these things go smoothly.

added. i am seeing on tv a program by ben fogle , new lives in the wild; talking with people who have chosen to live in isolated places. this one is a guy who wanted to build a hostel in a remote area of guatemala. it is really strange to see their lives and what made them do it.
