This weekend we're having (hopefully) the last fling of Winter- yesterday we had a heavy (as in you think you're standing under the tap) shower for an hour or so.
This morning it was back down to 3 degrees C and although the sun is out again there is a half cloudy sky and the breeze is decidedly chilly.
Talking of weather and harvests I learnt that last year's apple harvest was bad here too-a little consolation to UK apple growers that they are not alone in this, but still not good news worldwide.
It is interesting to see how expensive fresh local/NZ grown food is- until you realize that no, it isn't expensive, the UK has just got used to cheap food over the past 65 years or so.
The house today is full of children, the two here, their cousins and friends.
All are charging round on bikes and scooters, bare feet and jandrells ( flip-flop sandals) abound. A trailer full of calves is to be collected from near here today and taken back to cousins' farm.
Bare feet or jandrells are in order for all ages here..and shorts!
I will have photos from the past month on here soon....when I borrow a cable!!
