We live in one of Brisbane's colder suburbs, which I love in all kinds of ways.
As our winter can be a short affair, lasting a matter of weeks, we love to light a fire when we can.
After the long months of Summer, on Saturday we had our first touch of this fleeting cold, with morning temperature around 0 degrees.
Mr C swung into action with the axe, chopping kindling and selecting perfect little logs.
Serious business, when some years we only light the fire two or three times!
We toasted our toes and watched a movie:
We love a bit of Woody Allen,
and this is such fun. I saw it on the plane in Canada last October and even under such trying circumstances, loved it to bits.
Of course, the Cardinals played the old "Been there" game with this one...
Ah Paris - never get sick of it ...
Who put flannelette sheets on the bed today?
That would be moi!
