Somehow after Christmas we just expect to leap suddenly into spring and be happy leaving the house in ankle-baring trousers and little jackets. We forget that, actually, December in the UK is pretty mild and it's January and February that are freezing as. Well, I seem to forget that anyway.
It makes it worse that my office is pretty much like a sauna, so I have to be a master of layering at this time of year. I've found a good compromise here with a cashmere jumper and feet-baring courts. But that doesn't mean I'm not willing away the days until I can dig out my collection of open toed sandals and blazers. In the meantime, I'm getting the most wear I can out of my favourite shearling jacket, because I know I'll be sad when the day comes to pack it away until next winter, however far away that may seem right now...
