...really! I know our friends in the Northern hemisphere would not think -6 is cold, but here in Sydney we are cold. Today was the thickest frost I've seen in 10 years, with the bin lid frozen shut, the car windscreen in need of scraping, and my feet leaving impressions as I walked in the park. The dogs didn't seem to mind but raced about as usual; I ran in a beanie, mittens, woolen scarf and two jackets. On Saturday, Eliza and I are going ice-skating at the temporary outdoor "Winter Wonderland" rink in the city. Only problem is, I can't ice-skate. Eliza says she will teach me in no time, but her student will have one eye on the mulled wine and hot chips instead. Maybe a cushion tied to my bottom??
