We really needed a sense of humour to appreciate Canberra weather's cruel joke on Friday! Having arrived back in Sydney at 6.00am to sunshine but a chilly wind, we boarded the bus to bring us back to Canberra. Very smooth ride, but somehow having just travelled about 24,000km to get home, that last couple of hundred seemed the hardest - especially when we spied the temperature outside the ABC ..... 3º at midday!!! Almost enough to make us turn around and catch the first plane back to Europe.
Jet lag hasn't been an issue ..... just the cold! Thank heavens for ducted heating, although even that was working overtime to heat a house that had been closed up for a week. We've been pretty lazy since arriving home, apart from finding the car battery flat, and after charging it all night, discovering that it had actually 'died', necessitating a new battery before we could go and do any shopping, going to one hockey match, and downloading about one third of approx. 9000 photos. A good many of them will be culled since we seemed to spend our time both taking photos of the same things.
So, I'd best go and turn the heater up a notch ..... and see if I can brighten up these pages with a few photos.
