Two for Tuesday

I) Winter weather update, Papakura, NZ 040809_1619


Another sunny though cool day in the land of the long white cloud.

Showers are forecast *sigh* before nightfall (sunset today is at 5:39pm). No sign of any clouds moving in yet so perhaps they’re wrong, fingers crossed.


II) Cottage Envy

Pity about the satellite dish but still picturesque. I can imagine sitting at an old roll top desk by one of the dormer windows upstairs catching up on my correspondence.


  1. Looks very Milly-Molly-Mandy doesn't it. Wonder how warm it is in winter.

  2. Not very I'll bet Lorri but I'm looking through more romantic eyes perhaps :-) roaring open fires and all that...

  3. I can picture myself in one of the downstairs windows sipping sherry by a roaring fire.

    Beautiful cottage.

  4. I can picture myself naked on a bear skin rug in front of the roaring fire, drunk on sherry, throwing my correspondence into the fire. It was a bad day that day.

  5. Ackkk no fires - just kidding love the look of the cottage. Did you ever see the movie The Holiday with Kate Winslet?

  6. What idiot put that dish in that particular spot? Looks to me as if there is plenty of open space up there on the roof...even on the backside of the hip. Otherwise, very nice.

  7. Bob - port for me but yes me too :-)

    lol Lori - that's quite a picture!!

    Joanne - yeah, I thought of that cottage (Rosehill I think it was called) when I saw this one too.

    JJ I know - heathens!


Make my day and leave a comment. C'mon you can do it.
