But Baby It's Cold Outside


For once, this song is strangely appropriate to Sydney.

Today I went to work in jeans, a wool knit, knee length boots and a scarf, and didn't take a stitch off. The girls were laughing at me, in the middle of 'Summer' (and I use that term veeeheeery loosely), rugged up for Winter.

Weather - let's get it together!

Which is one reason we dressed the house early for Christmas.

And while I'm on the topic of it being ridiculously cold and wet in Sydney, when it should be blaringly, glaringly hot, Tiny has been having tantrums because she wants to see the snow. Not just one isolated tantrum either, it's been a series of tantrums on seperate days. The first day she put her gumboots on and we all got into the car and drove to the supermarket. Then she asked where we were going when we got back into the car. "Home." "No we're not! We're going to the snow!"

Way to let a toddler down. I had to educate her on the fact that snow was unlikely - however, who knows with this weather, but heck, I'll keep her posted.

Following days Tiny has requested to go to the snow. And has stood outside with gumboots on waiting to see the snow. Alas it's just rain and jacaranda flowers. Prince sang 'Purple Rain', perhaps he could record 'Purple Snow'? Anything's possible with this weather. Right?

Dean Martin rocks!

This weather is ridiculous!

Coldest start to summer in 28 years?? How is this happening?

I'm well and truly over it. I need the sun.

Cohen found a display of Tonka trucks on the chemists shelves this morning, right inside the door of course, then proceeded to have a tantrum on the floor when I encouraged him to put back the one he'd decided to play with. Ahhhh. Tantrums. Lesson learnt by mother - there will be no more 'quick' trips into the shops this Christmas season, unless he is strapped in the pram.

Send Tiny my way. There`s plenty of snow for her here. Oodles of the stuff. We can make snow angels, build a snowman, go sledding, throw snowballs at all the snotty kids in the neighbourhood and generally just carve up the snow. How do u think she`d go on skiis??
