Yesterday we were out most of the day with a friend plus his rellies from Australia. When we got home for fish and chips we put the thermostat right up for them as they do feel the cold over here. Mr SW and I haven't had the central heating on at all since last winter but we spent the evening with the two Aussies swaddled in sweaters and outdoor coats while we three English ones melted in just thin, cotton, short-sleeved shirts. I do resent having to get sweaty for the sake of those who feel the cold but go about in thin, man-made fibres but these two were doing all they could to stay warm.
Aren't bodies weird? We do the same in th USA when visiting our son who once coped matter-of-factly with the rigours of near-Siberian winters here in Yorkshire but now thinks it's cold if the temperature drops below 20c. Over there Mr SW and I sit under the air con when indoors.
I guess we adapt to our environment. One of the 'Aussies' spent her first 30 years in Yorkshire but you'd never think so now.
