However I did have a wonderful time in Perth catching up with my mother, sister, brothers, neices and nephews and friends. It had been 17 years since all my family had been together for Christmas.
It was warm when we got there, but ok and I did actually wear a cardigan in the late afternoon, evenings a couple of times, then after Boxing Day it grew hotter and was really hot for about 2 weeks straight. Then last Mon & Tues it was cooler again. It was hot when we landed in Sydney on Wed and I went for a swim on Thursday while we were at dh mothers to catch up for 2 days.
Then it was just on dusk when I arrived home to a sea of agapanthus purple waving in the breeze. I started unpacking, washing, hanging and finally reading some blogs before bed.
