It is CHILLY here at the moment. Perfect winter weather which makes you feel well and truly alive – I do love it. Bare trees letting in lots of sunshine and crispy, crunchy frosty mornings and FREEZING nights. Last night went down to minus 3 with an apparent air temp of MINUS 5.6. A little too chilly for my liking.
The fire is still roaring and the sun is shining, the clothes are attempting to dry in the sunshine and I’m having cup after cup of tea trying to keep my hands warm. See that sunny spot over in the chair by the window? That’s THE winter spot. My spot. It’s the dead of winter right now, and it looks pretty good to me.
Flowers are cheap at the mo and because the garden has NOTHING on offer (come on Daphne and bulbs) I can’t resist those little $4 bunches of daffs and jonquils – instant sunshine on your table or bench! And those poppies were from my Step Mum yesterday and they couldn’t be prettier if they tried. Do yourself a favour and get some flowers this weekend, whack them in an old jar and thank me later.
We have a trip to Sydney tomorrow to catch up with some of Rob’s family. The girls are excited to see their cousins and Grandparents and I’m looking forward to some slightly warmer weather and catching up with lots of lovely people! Sunday we are back down here before last minute list planning and packing for next week. I have some Osso Bucco AND pork belly to cook. Greedy I tell you. I’ll try and remember to blog the recipes as I go…
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend x
