Not sure I should have got out of bed so early this morning. We had another good heavy frost, great for killing bugs, but not so great for cold fingers and toes!
The cats seek out any little spot of sunshine to warm up, and the rats almost go into hibernation in their ‘nests’ of torn newspaper and coconut fibre.
However, it is now nearly lunchtime, most of the frost has thawed in the sunshine, and the condensation on the windows is vanishing. Sometimes I feel like a lizard, it is difficult to get going when things are cold – I need to warm up first.

Son and I enjoyed our evening last night, sitting by the fire and watching two games of rugby. The first was the Maori All Blacks winning against Samoa, a good game with the Samoans scoring an amazing try right on the final whistle.
The second game was the first for the All Blacks this season. I felt sorry for their opponents, Tonga, with their inexperienced team. They played well but were unable to stop the ABs beating them by 102 to zero.
It was a treat for me to watch these games – four haka challenges to watch! I do so love to watch a good haka – it stirs the blood just like listening to bagpipes does.
And now, time to find something warm to eat for lunch, then I should be right for the afternoon.
Have a great weekend everyone 😊
