Oh, Hi Canberra winter.

Yes, temperature of minus 6.5. APPARENT TEMP -9.7. And still minus two when I left for the gym at six am.

A frost.

Obstacles on the walk to work at 8:30 in the morning.

And these clothes are clearly not substantial enough. Cute, but failing to warm me.

(I should add that only HALF the electric blanket gave up. Much snuggling required.)

Grey Canberra Afternoon

The fog across the oval at work this afternoon.

Nothing a little tights action couldn’t brighten up!

Okay. Here is my itinerary in yahoo weather widgets. Towards the end my packing dilemma will be revealed.

First stop, Vienna. Fly into Frankfurt Saturday with Malaysian Airlines, then hop straight onto an Air Berlin flight to Vienna. Were supposed to be meeting friends there, but they’ve pulled out… plans to date: apple strudel (for Rish), music, horses. For all locations, suggestions welcome. We probably won’t stay in Vienna the whole time we’re in Austria, likely to venture out a little :)

Halloween night was good (costume and hotel room pics to come later this week), amazing how much you can fit into 23 hours in Sydney :) A few hours sleep, we managed to drive home safely… watched the cool storm coming in over the wind farm at Lake George.

It’s a gorgeous spring day today…. tops of mid 20s for Canberra on the first day of October. You think it might hang around for the long weekend? It seems not…


This is when I start being happy I’ll in Newcastle for the long weekend. Until I see the weather predictions there:


erm. Okay. At least I get to see my little fraggle of a nephew, hey?

I don’t think I’ve had so many rainy days as this in Canberra since I’ve been living here… Give me back my cold sunny winter days! 1 more day til school holidays. I swear I’ve had a week-long headache counting it down… Nearly there! Rumours of staffing movements abound – fortunately not involving me…

Went up for sprints up on the oval next to work with Rish this morning – almost killed myself with the jog up the hill to get there! I could have almost done that a few times instead (and perhaps I should start doing that – go for a jog up the hill to work […]
