Post No. 70 - Hey! Where'd the sun go?

No really - are you hiding it? Cos it disappeared and we can't find it anywhere!

Horrible, cold, wet, windy, frosty, yuck! The pansies are now in the living room as opposed to on the balcony cos Palmy (why do I always type Plamy and then have to correct it?!) is expected to go as low as minus 1 tonight!

The heaters are back on in full force and the hot water bottle was warming my toes again last night. And most definetly will be tonight.

So it seems that its not just Scotland with the ever changing seasons and weather. Maybe it really is global warming like they tell us. But my question is - why it is called Global warming when its so darn cold?!

So there goes even the mildest chance I might have any colour on my legs before the big trip next month (and lets face it - even with sun the only colour I would go would be red!). I can't believe we are going to Australia - 'citing stuff! And I can't wait to see everyone - its going to be fabulous.

And let's not forget - people - that its my birthday too! And what with the long distance you best all start posting the cards and gifts just now (hee hee!).
Strange how I don't have that sense of dread about birthdays yet. I am happy to celebrate having lasted another year without accidently slitting a major artery with a post-it note or having a pigeon kill me (I think thats probably the way I will eventually go - those pigeons, they hate me! Hey - thats just started off a whole other thought process....are there pigeons in NZ? Hmmmm, can't say I have seen one. There are lots of ducks though. But I like ducks. And they don't seem to have such an evil glint in their eyes compared to the pigeons.)

And on that cheerful note, answers on a postcard about what this picture is actually of?

A phrase called 'global cooling' was born last year, as many places were unusually extreme cold.
Do any people eat duck in NZ? In Beijing, a famous dish is called ‘roasted duck’, it is delicious, especially eating the crisp duck skin with spring onion and sweet sauce. hope you enjoy it

those who guessed seahorses guessed correctly!
nice to see you all here!

Kenny - they do duck dishes at Thai and Chinese restaurants which I am yet to try. The Roast Duck you mentioned sounds tasty!
