Winter is upon us ...

So here in Australia winter starts on June 1. This year it certainly hasn't mucked about, getting chilly straight away. The electric blankets went on about a week or so ago, and have been getting a bit of use. As has the fireplace. There is nothing quite so lovely as an open fireplace. Strange that something that is basically a destroying process can be so peaceful to watch.

And finally we've been getting some rain. It's been raining for about 2 days straight which is something of a novelty as we haven't had rain for months. We'll still be on water restrictions though, as the rain is stubbornly refusing to fall in the dams. Good for my vege garden though, and our lawn, which has been hanging on to life with it's fingernails.

I've been going to the gym a lot lately, in an effort to get fit. Going fairly well, it is hard to be motivated sometimes though. Giving yoga a try for the first time tonight, I've heard people rave about it, so it will be interesting to see what it is like.

Good thing about cold weather though is lots of hot, yummy food. Brian cooked a pork roast on the weekend, very nice indeed. Gotta love crackling.
