The weather has been so appalling here lately, with cold winds and rain and temperatures barely hitting the mid-teens, that us Queenslanders are finding it difficult to cope. Hubs in particular has NOT been impressed that we are living through winter again.
Having said this, I DO love it when it rains at night when we’re all snuggled up in bed and drifting off to sleep. I always find I go to sleep much quicker when it rains. I think this stems from when I was growing up and I was always so paranoid about burglars. There was no good reason for this, other than me being a big scaredy-cat about… well… pretty much everything! But I knew that a burglar wouldn’t be so stupid as to rob a house when it’s raining, (how did I know this???) so I always slept soundly on those nights. The heavier the rain, the better.
These days it just brings a nice feeling of comfort. A feeling of home, wherever I am.
