How are we doing after a week in our new town? We are loving it! The warm weather is on the top of our lists of things that give us the happy. I don’t think either of us realized just how much the cold weather of northern England was affecting us, but now that we’re all thawed out again there is a noticeable difference in how we feel, how we eat and how we act. Our moods have improved so much!
(To all our friends who have had to deal with our grouchy selves in the UK, we are sorry!)
We had forgotten how much we love to wear our shorts and flip flops and explore the streets without shivering.
We had forgotten how beautiful the fruit is in a warm and semi-tropical climate. That pear in the back of the box is nearly the size of my head! And we forgot how much we love the taste of pinha, which has a very short shelf life and is just not available in the chilly north.
And the pool! Dipping hot feet in the cool water with the sun on your back and a good book in your hand has to be one of life’s greater joys.
I know we were looking forward to moving back to Brazil because we had such good experiences here before, but this past week has reinforced our anticipation, and reminded us of yet another reason we’re happy to be back. Aaaaah, relaxing warmth without bone shaking shivers.
