Yesterday afternoon I braved the freezing conditions and went into town to do the last (I hope) of the Christmas shopping. I was feeling awful (bad cold etc) and decided to stop at a cafe for a cup of coffee.
I could not believe it - minus probably 5 degrees and there they were - the smokers sitting at the outside tables in the freezing cold smoking. There must have been at least 10 of them and I have to say they looked absolutely ridiculous. Clutching cups of steaming coffee in one gloved hand whilst puffing away with the other.
I can honestly say I felt sorry for them and so very glad that I don't do that any more.
