On Saturday night we put our clocks back an hour and so Lionel is now walking home from work in the dark at 5.15pm!!! We have also had a couple of really good frosts this week - on Saturday morning I had to scrape the car windscreen before taking Rebecca to swimming at 7.30am. I thought that would mean a nice fine day (as in Southland) unfortunately it didn't turn out that way...We had another frost this morning but we also have clear blue skies and the sun is shining so we will get out for a walk this afternoon.
We are on half term break at the moment and so Rebecca is enjoying being out of the school routine. We went out to friends for lunch on Sunday (yes, another roast dinner...) and Rebecca ended up staying the night there with her friend Poppy (a church friend).
