This week, though, there's been a cold snap. It's been windy and the mornings have been cold - jeans and jumper cold. It's quite odd and every time I step outside I'm surprised by the goosebumps that quickly pop up. By lunchtime, it's warm enough to shed a few layers and soak in the sun. In fact the weather kind of reminds me of Sydney in the autumn, clear crisp days, cool breeze but warm in the sun. Endless blue skies.
There has been a slight over reaction though, you see people in gloves and scarves and big jackets, looking like they're ready for a Melbourne winter day. Stuff I wouldn't even wear in a Sydney winter.
I've enjoyed pulling on my trackies in the evening and getting inside to warm up. It's a nice change and I know it won't last long, so we're soaking it up. Before we know it we'll be looking at months and months of 40 plus temperatures and being locked inside. The summers are long, harsh and unrelenting, no southerly busters in Dubai to bring relief.
Yesterday morning, as I looked at my iPhone weather app I could have been forgiven for thinking that Sydney and Dubai got their forecasts mixed up.
What's you perfect temperature?
