This is not the sort of discussion I usually post, nor is it probably called a discussion at all. I'm taking a few minutes to pop in here to say hullo. There's not a lot to report at the moment, other than life is good. I had a great quick trip to Wellington and have been rather busy with this and that since my return. Summer has been missing all of January but now the kids go back to school after their six week summer break, the wind has dropped and the sun has come out.

What a beautiful photograph! Is that a hibiscus? Good to see you here. I haven't been around too much.

I could quietly disappear, but connections to people make that difficult.

@valmnz Yes, I get it - seasons in the southern hemisphere must have taken those settlers a while to get used to centuries ago.

I'm fine thank you, being doing lots of real life things instead of being at my computer.

Unfotunately no, it has been a terrible summer, during January anyway! Today is the first day that could be called summer.

Well, Hullo, yourself! Summer has been missing down there, and until today winter has been missing up here. I've had windows open more often than not the past couple of weeks!
