It's been late coming this year when many Kiwis will have been BBQing for several months (and that's not counting those who BBQ all year around) but this evening Martin cooked a BBQ. It's been a fabulous day - I played two croquet matches: one this morning and one this afternoon. After we'd eaten The Family and Misty went for a walk. I came as far as The Cottage and then retired to watch an episode of Midsomer Murders and have a wee brandy. Tomorrow is another day and I know it will be busy with a trip to the farmers market and then visitors in the late afternoon.
Today is the longest day. Although at the solstice the sun actually stands still for a moment in astrological time before reversing to all intents and purposes our days will get shorter from now on (scary thought in that I've only been back here a short time) and if you are living in the Northern hemisphere your days will be getting longer.
