Just a footnote to the earlier post about the amazing January weather. It has still not rained since before Christmas, the sun is still shining, but we had a relentless icy cold northerly wind for a week – so violent that once again my eucalyptus, where Chris’s ashes lie, lost three branches again.
Today we were back to sun with no wind. A glorious day – except I have got my first cold for several years! Sat up most of last night and feeling a bit sorry for myself.
