I Am Staying Indoors Until Someone Invents A Pair Of Slippery Woolly Tights



I’d like to say that I welcome each coming season equally and with open arms… but I don’t. Because, you see, whereas Spring makes me zing,

Summer makes me smile (and, admittedly, sweat)

and Winter is just wonderful

– autumn, for me, is just a complete nightmare.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I rejoice in the changing colours of the falling leaves,

I relish the wind whipping through my (already messy) hair

and I love to watch with wonder as the squirrels sprint around collecting nuts for winter

how can I be expected to put one foot outside my front door when – thanks to my very warm and fashionable (but very rough and fuzzy) woolly tights – my A-line skirt insists on riding half way up my legs* to reveal the chubbiest set of knees this side of the Northern hemisphere BEFORE I’VE EVEN MADE IT TO THE END OF MY DRIVE?

Exactly. I can’t. And so that is why I am staying indoorsย until someone invents a pair of slippery woolly tights.

*And, yes, the legs still look like root vegetables. Thankyou for asking.
