And then ... As I type ... I recall - this is our (Western Australians) first ever daylight savings' summer - have we beaten the solstice? I smile - all summer we will have an extra hour.
I visited Sombra's blog tonight and delighted in his pictures of the snow - take the time to have a look - they are beautiful. However, to my Aussie friends - Happy Summer, may it be long.
