June 1 is officially the first day of winter but clearly no one told the weather gods as Wellington was treated to a stunning day.
But those of you familiar with our place will know that we lose any sight of the sun over the dark months of winter. So today as the last hint of sun appeared fleetingly in the front garden Rosie the cat staked her claim. At 19 years old she deserves every chance she gets to warm her old bones.
With no sun for the next 2 months our thoughts are turning to warmer climes. After 2 years absence we are planning a return to Italy (only for a month) to visit some places and friends we know, some places that are new and exciting and, most importantly, places that are in the sun.
