❄️ Plenty to think about ❄️

I’m not gonna lie, this mornings bike delivery was definitely cold and somewhere between brave and stupid. It was icy and dangerous so I had to be cautious which unfortunately means I have to be out in it longer. The cold hitting your vital organs makes the not so vital organ feel the need to go like immediately after you’ve just been. It has given me plenty of food for thought tho. There is always going to be complexities with mail delivery and the cold I am no stranger too. But, the cold on a bike is something different. I instantly couldn’t feel my fingertips and after 30 minutes I thought I had overcome the worst feelings of the cold. How wrong I was, the worst feeling of the cold was when I had finished and entered the house. The feeling in my hands was like no other feeling I have ever felt. It was painful but not over bearing pain. I felt sick, like I was going to vomit and I was pacing up and down the kitchen just hoping for whatever it was to end. It did after about 6 or 7 minutes, but it’s left me needing to prepare more for the next freezing bike ride. Thermal gloves, long trousers and a bigger bladder are all on order.

I think the upshot of today is it’s going to lead to a winter time shift to counteract the temperatures. The worst months lie ahead so some serious consideration is needed. The much needed warmth of bed has made me incredibly sleepy, so will leave it here.

Not just a postman.
