It was -2°C at Perth Airport at 6 o’clock this morning when The Other half left for work riding his bike.
What was his isteri mithali doing?
Still under the doona where it was really warm and comfy, hehehe…
Just savouring the last few extra minutes lying in the warmth before I had to wake up…
And when we went to school this morning at 8, it was still 3°C…
I nearly had frostbites on my nose and ears and fingers when I was hanging the laundry out on the lines at 7.30 pagi tadi.
It was freaking cold!!!!!!!
We moved to Perth sebab the weather was supposed to be Mediterranean where it was always mild and beautiful, hehehehe….
So, for us people yang dah terbiasa dengan the beautiful Mediterranean climate here in Perth, bila the temperature drops to around 1°C, itu dah kira sejuk gilersssss lah.
But the sun did shine during the day bringing the temperature back up to gorgeous 17°C in the afternoon.
Pagi all wrapped up tightly in thick clothings, tengah hari dah boleh sunbathing in the backyard pakai bikini, kahkahkahkah……
But bila sunset aje, terus sejuk balik.
I am typing this entry with the heater switched on facing me, my fingerless gloves on, a scarf around my neck and multiple layers of clothing.
(I love Winter but I tak tahan sejuk, hehehe).
But the girls obviously tak rasa sejuk kot because Miss 8 and Miss 13 were only in their pyjamas and socks.
Miss 8 I can understand sebab dia banyak extra lemak in her body but Miss 13 tu kurus kering so macam manalah boleh tak sejuk kan….
Bila sejuk2 ni, tentulah asik nak makan something warming aje kan.
But we all kat rumah tak suka makan soup (except chicken soup) so the next best thing is hot mashed potatoes with plenty of gravy, hehehe.
I made mashed potatoes with sauteed leeks and mustard. Eaten with sausages and onion gravy. Then nak balance the creaminess, we had steamed broccoli and carrot sticks as side.
Sangat heaven when the warm mashed potatoes and gravy slid down the throats into our hungry tummies……
