Everyone in the northern hemisphere seems to be heralding the arrival of spring, and considering the winter that you have experienced, I can understand.
We here in the southern hemisphere are however on a different seasonal calendar. We are waiting for autumn.
Here in our patch of subtropical Queensland, we are yet to experience a day below 30C. It has been an extremely hot summer with day after day over 35C and nights that did not allow enough cooling to be comfortable. I am so over summer, so over sweating, and teenage boy body odour after lunch sport, and fruit flies, mosquitoes, snakes, hail storms and cyclones, mould in the bathroom and having to drive in boiling hot cars at the end of the day.
Send me days to wear woollens, and nights to light fires. I need meals that are warm and comforting, and excuses to simmer thick soups. Socks and boots and fingerless gloves. Scarves!
Bring it on!
