Spring is Sprung

We've now had about four days of sunny weather! Hooray! It looks like spring's arrived at last. And about time too because I really don't like winter. The rain and grey skies are sooo depressing. Of course when we first moved to Australia everyone thought it hilarious I felt the cold so acutely. After all, I came from England, I should be used to freezing my bits off!

Although I still find it very odd to celebrate Christmas in the middle of summer. In my mind, the summer months are July/August (ok, so July and August in the UK can quite often be absolutely dire but that's not my point!!) Right now the cherries are out (yummm) the birds are nesting - and the Christmas decs are up in the shops. ARGH!!

Hey Christina! Wanted to pop in a say thanks again for your post on the NZ loop. Hope you enjoy my Hot Boss! And my five year old daughter is going in to have her tonsils and adenoids out tomorrow. She'd been sick all year with fevers and what we thought were colds. She's never slept properly through, so dh and I are soooo looking forward to nights without interruption =)))

The strawberries are ripe but it's raining here!! Someone tagged me with a meme. I picked you to tag - if you have time ;)

Robbie you're very welcome! I'm starting your Hot Boss tonight!

Hugs for your daughter, hope all goes well. My son had his adenoids out when he was five - it certainly did help him sleep more easily at nights.

Shelley thanks for the meme...! I'm onto it!
