It's very cold here in my house at the moment. We have radiators and fan-heaters, but the stone floors are freeeezing. We've had a few glimpses of sun in the past few weeks, and the little bright yellow flowers than cover the ground in the olive groves shone luminously in the sun while it was out. But mostly days are dark (car headlights on all day, like in England), cold (scarf, gloves) and rather miserable generally. Too bitter for park, and all equipment would be soaking wet, anyway, giving damp bottoms in no time. Just as well my son loves drawing, and my daughter has a 2-hr nap, or we'd all go bananas.
