The mild weather seems to be slipping away from us. One thing blogging has taught us, has been to welcome and to celebrate each season. You see in New Zealand we are lucky and have pretty mild weather, with not too many extremes. Where we live, it doesn't snow but our winters are grey, windy and often wet. After seeing the amount of snow all of our friends have had to endure, we can hardly complain (but you know we will).
So we are going to say loud and proud - Welcome Winter!! We celebrate you by pulling out the sheepskin slippers, putting the merino blanket on the bed and the radiator heater has been plugged back in after a 8 month break.
We also celebrate you in the kitchen, as mum and her family had their first roast dinner with steamed pudding, and mum has bought lots of soup to eat.
To all of our Northern Hemisphere friends, enjoy your warmth and sunbeams and look after them for us and send them back in October.
