For years and years it used to be a standing joke in work that until October half term I would be in Summer clothes, but more specifically Summer footwear. Sandals, mules of flips flops.
By the final week if October I would have cold toes but I would stick it out as a matter of principle.
This year I am wearing my boots and it isn’t even October.
I’m not sure whether it’s getting colder each year (global warming?) or I’m getting older and feeling the cold more.
