A few weeks ago I bought myself a Vivofit watch. Its one of those over expensive pedometers really but it does monitor your sleep. I have found that when I think I am sleeping, I am actually very active. I must jump on the bed in my sleep. This would explain why I am so tired the next morning. It also shows that my non movement time is close to when I have to get up which means I am waking out of a deep sleep. No wonder the snooze button gets a work out.
What I really wanted to write about today is how different people deal with the cold. The few short weeks I spent in Iceland/Norway showed me people who rug up. Down jackets, scarves, gloves, boots, multiple layers, and beanies, and there was me with a long sleeve, thin winter top and fleece jacket totally enjoying the cool fresh air.
Yesterday Perth had its coldest day in 8 months, a balmy 17 degrees Celsius. This morning it was 2 degrees south of Perth and -1 north of Perth. I had my boots on because I was going to be walking but I also had my fleece jacket and a summery top. I was nice and warm. Others however were a mix. Some were totally rugged up from head to toe like they were entering a deep freeze for the day while others were in shorts and tank tops (turning a nice shade of blue). One woman I found very confusing. She was sitting on the train, scarf, full length woolen jacket, gloves, a beanie and thongs (flip flops for my American readers). It is beyond me how people dress for the weather at times. Mind you I probably shock a few people considering I love the cold and don't feel it as much as others do.
Well so ends another informative blog entry. I need to go away again. My life is interesting then.
