We had a bleak and bitter weekend here in Canberra ... the wind whipped down from the snowfields bringing a bit of rain, a bit of sleet and snow flurries. Saturday we spent visiting EVERY GODDAMN LIGHTING SHOP in Canberra which made it very clear very quickly what we don't want. I'd been looking at a thousand things on-line but I don't think I can buy a light without seeing it in person. Anyway I think we have chosen one which is very exciting, even though they will have to order it from Denmark and it will take 12 weeks.
Sunday it was supposed not to rain in the morning so we thought we'd do a quick 10km walk around the east basin ... and we got snowed on. Not a lot, but even a little bit of speckly snow is offputting when it's being driven into your face with 40 km/hr winds. On the plus side, there weren't many people about.
At least a long cold walk gave us the moral authority to stay by the fire all afternoon .. until we went round to friends for drinks ... and that was the weekend! Other than the usual boring things relating to laundry, cooking, driving children places and a little bit of sewing.
