Cold Comfort

I know this is thought of as a Christmas song but if you listen to the words it isn’t mentioned once. It is about snow, log fires, popcorn and goodnight kisses and for me it captures the romance of proper winter and I say proper winter because here in the UK we are often subjected to weather that involves days and days of miserable grey skies when you forget what blue skies look like and you have the lights on in the house all day. There is nothing fun or comforting and romantic about that weather but of late we have been treated to something that resembles proper winter weather.

Today I went for a long walk down one of my favourite pathways. The sky was a vivid blue, the sun hung low and bright in the sky, underfoot the path that is usually muddy was encased in a layer of ice that crackled beneath me. My breath clouded in front of my face as I walked and the cold bit at my nose and lungs. By the time I got back to my car my cheeks were bright pink and my glasses all steamed up. It was the perfect frosty winter walking weather, the world looked beautiful with a slight dusting of white, and it felt good to be out in it.

There is no denying the potential romance of winter, log fires, hot chocolate, woolly socks and cosy beds with thick feather duvets, staying snug and warm indoors while the wind and rain howls outside are all things of romance novels and movies. Tumblr is full of images that show couples indulging on such things whilst holding hands, kissing, reading and staring longingly into each other eyes and I get it, it is wholesome and comforting and I totally want some of that. One thing I would love to do if I came into some money would be to spend a week in a beautiful log cabin surrounded by beautifully snow filled landscape with a huge log fire and Jacuzzi and spend the week taking pictures, going for walks, eating yummy food and fucking each other senseless. It sounds like absolute bliss to me.

However real life isn’t like that holiday or those scenes from movies, real life involves having to go out in the cold pissing round at 9 o clock at night to pick up your teen from the movies, or go out to supermarket to buy the food you need to stay alive and find that you have a hole in the bottom of your winter boots (true story that happened just last week) Real life is waking up in the night freezing because the heating as stopped working or going to take a hot shower and discovering someone flicked the boiler switch and now there is no hot water. Real life for me is suffering from poor circulation and finding the cold relentless, exhausting and sometimes even painful. I was not made for this climate. I am most at home in the heat. This summer in Greece when others were too hot and slept with the air conditioning on I was absolutely in my element. For once I wasn’t cold and it was so relaxing. I am most definitely a summer person and that summer is rarely an English one which is usually not warm enough for me.

So here I am, living in a world where the summer is not warm enough, and oddly, most of the winter is not cold enough. There are not enough crisp frosty days with bright blue skies and sunshine and night times of snowfall which leave the world wrapped in beautiful white blanket that glistens in the morning sunlight. It is that winter which makes me think about spending the afternoon in bed fucking and then watching as the last of the daylight vanishes beyond the window at a ridiculously early hour of the day or laying on the rug in the front room with only the Christmas lights for illuminations and fucking myself to orgasm with a warmed glass dildo while he watches.

Winter isn’t really my season and it doesn’t tend to inspire sexy thoughts and feelings in me but sometimes, when the Christmas decorations are up, and like this weekend coming the kids are away at their Dads for a couple of nights there is a certain something about the thought of drawing the curtains, putting on the fire and turning out all the lights expect for the decorations, watching Christmas movies, drinking hot chocolate and fucking on the sofa that makes me just a little fond of winter.

I do sometimes envy your snow (we occasionally get it here for about 20 mins – lol!), but like you I find grey days incredibly dreary. Unfortunately for me I also find the extremes of heat tedious too. 22 degrees forecast for Xmas day followed by 32 Boxing Day – go figure!
Oddly one thing that stood out for me was the thought “Molly wears glasses????” Somehow I never associate your goddess like presence with the wearing of glasses – though I find glasses quite sexy. My brain is strange.
Thanks for the old Dean Martin clip too!

Yep, I do wear glasses most of the time although sometimes I just don’t bother. I need them to drive though. I guess the reason I don’t have them on in many of my pictures is I always take them off to use my camera as the eye piece if set to my natural vision and also my glasses make close up things blurry. Here is a link to a post with me wearing my glasses

I love snow. Walking in it, sledding in it, watching it out the window on a lazy afternoon… Those activities conjure happy childhood memories for me. 🙂

Driving in snow, on the other hand…

Or shoveling the stuff, or weathering through blizzard-induced power outages, or any other “adulting” in the snow…

Well, in those instances, “love” might be too strong a word. 😉

The Netherlands are exactly the same as England – grey skies in winter. I love crispy cold winter days, with clear blue skies. I don’t mind the cold, as long as there is sun. But these grey skies… nah, not really my thing. However, making love in front of the fireplace while it snows outside, that sounds great!

I do also really like the snow and always notice how rosy my cheeks are when returning from snowy walks. Years ago I went skiing – just the once and stayed in a log cabin up in the mountains which were a really idyllic setting. But generally, I do not like the cold. It makes me sad and blue, I was made for the hot weather for sure. 😉 x

Indeed, there are some things to look forward to during winter, I like how you went round this concept.

When the kids are grown up, maybe you and Michael should move to the States (er – after He Who Shall Not Be Named is out of office)! We have places where there’s proper winter and proper summer. 😀 I’m like you, Molly – I love the heat. Indoor heating is so expensive, and I’m usually too broke to heat my place the way I’d like. Maybe I should put an ad up for a sleeping partner – not someone to date or fuck, but just someone to sleep next to me as a heater. >< In any case – I hope you made the most out of your child-free weekend and enjoyed that fire and cocoa!

I had a feeling your post would be similar to mine. I love the cold crisp blue skies too but I like the dreary rain during the week because there is nothing I hate more than scraping ice of my fucking car at stupid o’clock in the morning!
