    I baby wear 99% of my awake time and it is just so hot and uncomfy for the both of us.

    Not sure if it's a better idea to just hang out in the shops or home tomorrow.

    Not teasing. I'm cold. I hate the cold/winter. It makes me feel depressed and sad.

    Fair enough. I hate gloomy days but found Canberra winters are great because they were mostly sunny. Cold but still sunny.

    So many people who think like me! @SSecret Squirrel I miss Canberra's winters too. I found the same thing, cold but sunny. I enjoyed going for walks there in winter. I also love my layers and boots. @twinklify, I'm also over the 30s (or near enough) temps. I'm not sure how people baby wear up here without having the a/c blasting all the time.

    It was still warm enough at 5 pm for me to be sweating slightly. Ugh
    @Rose&Aurelia&Hannah - I'm really sorry you aren't enjoying Canberra at the moment. I found it hard when the cold set in, but by the end of June I was ok.

    I am miserable.

    Canberra is so so sh!tty. The weather is miserable, the Cost of living huge, some people are nice but most are so standoffish. No one is actually cheerful and happy ever, if you ask them how they are.

    Plus there is zero decent Indian take away here. I mean seriously. It's so crap and over priced so I can't even comfort myself with a decent vindaloo. Hanging out for May 22. Dh is off to Sydney and he had promised to be bring me home some real takeaway.

    Default I am.....#16

    Hugs RAH xx

    I Know a couple people that lived in Canberra and they moved after less than a year after enduring a Canberra winter. One was my family when my older brother was just born. My mum forced dad to quit his new job and move back otherwise she would leave. She found it bitterly cold, not a nice cold like in the snow fields, and awfully depressing with a little one, and not much to eat or do.

    I know that's not an option for you. Do whatever you have to to keep sane and warm xxx

    Eta: the Indian is here is awful too. Bland and not authentic, like packet mixes. I wish I could cook it myself.

    Have you tried Rama's at Pearce shops on the southside? Might possibly tide you over
