The sunshine has gone from Larnaka. And no, that's not me being poetically morose about Daniel having departed yesterday. I mean it literally. There was about an hour of sunshine after I got up this morning, then the sky turned grey and cloudy, and has been that way ever since. At lunchtime it started pouring with rain. Much needed, since we had a very dry Autumn, and December was mostly quite mild.
But it looks like this weather's here to stay. For the next week we're predicted to have rain showers off and on, and temps no more than 15C. Funny how 15 [um, that's 59F, for anyone reading from the USA!] seems quite warm when it's sunny and springlike, and accompanied by a gentle breeze, but when the sky's grey and there's a biting wind, it feels extremely cold.
So I'm sitting here in a sweatshirt and fleece, the kerosene heater is running, we ate soup for lunch- and I still feel chilly. At times like this it would be rather nice to have somewhere with lower ceilings and better-fitting windows, preferably double-glazed!
I thought I might cut the grass this afternoon as it's looking long and untidy. But I guess not...
