Since September it's been mild, overcast, occasionally wet and occasionally windy. It's boring. The seasons have merged into one grey blandness. We didn't have an autumn and now we're not having a winter.
Damn it, I want frost and I want snow. I want seasons.
Wombat Towers is uncomfortably stuffy - despite the cannon ball holes in the west wing. Of course, the flywheels and furnaces are running but that's for a very necessary project (the items Hobbes procured from the village won't stay fresh indefinitely) and we'll need the power should another pitchfork-and-torch-wielding mob try to force one of the drawbridges and portcullises again.
So, where do I submit my complaint form? It's just not good enough.
