Happiness is a cup of tea. My electric kettle is a definite enabler for that.

Striped road cones at the top of Owen St, showing where there’s been a small slip (on the other side of the flax bushes).

27 January. Sun

4.15pm on a stunningly beautiful summer’s day. (Day 4 in a predicted run of 10 sunny days. It says something about the weather in Wellington that the day they forecast ten sunny days in a row, it was one of the top national news headlines and appeared all over people’s Facebook pages. Ten days of sunshine in Wellington predicted – nation gives collective gasp of disbelief.) (Don’t believe me? Check out today’s article as proof of the rarity of this.)

28 January. Through

  1. You live in a beautiful place, and you get 10 days of sun in a row! In England that’s summer all over! 😀 Enjoy your sun-time!

    • Usually we’re lucky to get 10 days in total, so the 10-in-a-row is utter bliss! I’m loving it, making sure I get outside for a nice walk with the baby every day. So, so lovely…. 🙂

  2. What beautiful photos!

  3. yay for sun! I think the prediction is amazing because when I visited NZ once I always got such a kick out of the forecaster predicting ‘fine’ weather. rather generic I thought 🙂 So a bold move indeed, and yay that it’s for sun! We just had 10 days of no rain, which is the longest stretch since the early 1960s for seattle in january 🙂

    • I’m finding it highly entertaining – it’s so unusual to have this much “fine” weather in a row that once we hit day three of sun, people started complaining about the heat! 😉

      Haha, yeah, they do tend to predict “fine” quite a bit. But they seem to be wrong quite a lot no matter what they predict, so it’s almost as though they give up sometimes!
