A man flew from Sydney to Wellington on Friday evening, local time. He went to his hotel, enjoyed breakfast at a cafe in town, lunch at another one, visited exhibitions, went shopping, enjoyed a drink in a bar. After returning to Sydney on Monday morning, he went for a Covid-19 test which returned positive (he had had his first dose of vaccine).
As we approach the shortest day, the weather remains mild here, with day time temperatures up to 16 or 17C, with nights around 12C. With the odd bits of rain as well, things continue to grow well out there. I’ve been able to get out and tidy a bit, but with so many pots now on the terrace, reaching the ones at the back (sorry curry plant and thyme). I really need a reorganisation somehow!
