So this is my first Australian winter.
It's pretty good so far - apparently it got down to 2 degrees last night which is really quite chilly! Mark's struggling not to say 'I told you so' every two minutes...(I refused to believe it would ever be cold...)
Now though, at 1pm, the sun's out, the sky's blue, the neighbours are mowing their lawn, the upstairs of our house is lovely and warm.
In fact, if I shut my eyes, it feels a lot like an English summer's day - of the warm dry variety ;)
