What do we have here – the first day of June – you know what that means
It’s the day that is deemed to be the first day of Winter here in Australia.
Our seasons change the first of the month not the 21st like in the Northern Hemisphere
Officially our Summer starts on January 1st – Autumn on March 1st
Winter on June1st and Spring on September 1st
I grizzle and groan at this time of the year – often the weather is cold, wet and miserable. We all know ‘cold’ is relative to where you live – compared to other places our cold here in Melbourne is not really cold (average winter lows of about 4c which is about 39f) – I can’t remember the last time we had a real frost – so when I complain, its not really about the weather, its more about the fact that I have to put more clothes on☹️
There is one thing I do know about this time of the year – as sure as fate – a particular brand of chocolate comes on sale..it’s winter, it’s cold, there’s no way it’s going to melt😊😊
So all I have to say (remind myself more like) is……..
I’ll have accepted it by tomorrow morning – which hopefully is warmer than yesterday
ps – and if you are under the impression that ’it doesn’t get cold in Sydney’ pop over to Kylie’s blog eclectica where she will let you in on the secret that – it just ain’t so……it does get cold cold in Sydney
