hiddenmeaningD: The voice on the radio said it was 40 degrees today and she went put without a coat! So can I?

Me: No. It’s not 40 degrees – it’s quite cold today.

D: But she said it was STEAMING!

Me: People don’t always say what they mean.

D: She was, it IS hot – she said!

Me: Turn the radio off if you’re going to believe everything they say, and look outside – it’s icy – I need to defrost the car.

D: Oh yes… OK… they don’t always mean what they say…

Sunny weather – Jan 2013

Wintry weather – Jan 2013

D: That’s you and me all cosy in our house and there’s all snow outside. That red bit there is the fire.

Warm and toasty in the snow

warmtoastyMe: What did you talk about at school today?

D: What’s our favourite weather.

Me: And what’s YOUR favourite weather?

D: Snow… No… Sun.

Me: Why’s that?

D: Because when it’s sunny you get all toasted and you don’t need the heating on. What’s your favourite weather?

Me: I like a bit of snow sometimes and I like a bit of sun sometimes. I don’t much like rain though.

D: No, I don’t like rain. What’s your favourite year?

Me: Do you mean time of year?

D: Yes.

Me: I like ALL of the seasons – they all have something to offer – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Although I don’t much like it when leaves fall off the trees in Autumn and ALL decide to fall into our garden.

D: Do you want to know my favourite season?

Me: Go on.

D: Summer – because it NEVER rains in Summer. It’s sunny EVERY day.

Me: It rains sometimes in Summer – what would happen to all the plants if it didn’t rain?

D: Yes – they’d die…

Temperature control

D: Is the ice cream van still going around now it’s all dark?

Me: No, it’s too cold for ice creams now – everyone’s all huddled up inside, by the fire.

D: But what if they get all hot and sweaty in their coats?

Me: They could take their coats off.

D: Not if the teacher says “No! That’s not right!” and doesn’t let them take their coats off. What if they turn to dust and the teacher doesn’t notice? They could have an ice cream – to cool them down. Or an ice cube. Oooo.
