We Had Some Sun For A While There.

The sun solves everything.  After weeks and weeks and weeks of nothing but rain, we've been richly rewarded for hanging in there and keeping on. 

Just in time for the weekend too.

This was the scene on Friday afternoon as I drove home in the early bit of peak hour.  It's only a photo of the traffic, I know, but that sky and that sunshine!  And all of it ahead of a non-working weekend.

The sun lent an almost festive, end of term vibe to school pick up.  Everyone wanted to hang around and play for a bit despite being picked up.  Second afternoon teas were had in the cool of the shad and various things were built and bounced on.  I don't know where all that energy came from because this was all coming off the back of swimming and cricket.  Yes. swimming has officially begun at school and all 70 kindergarteners changed into their bathers, got onto a bus, swam and then changed back again without any major dramas.  I'm none the wiser as to how it actually happened but it did and Master SSG is looking forward to doing it all again next week.

I'm also excited about finally being able to do some long outdoor runs. 

There's been a bit of fog over Sydney but it's lovely and warm in the early mornings these days.  Just a shame that this new fangled phone of mine still can't take perfect photos in the dawn light.  It was spectactular seeing the lights of the city materialize through the fog.  Might try the flash next time to see if it helps.  Shame I didn't think to do this at the time.

I knew I was going to jinx the weather when I posted my earlier photos.  The storm clouds are gathering again this afternoon and a storm seems imminent.  So it was probably a good thing we went for a swim at the aquatic centre rather than at the beach.  It was only a brief reprieve from the rain that we had yesterday and earlier today but at least I've got some hot chips.

How's the weather made you feel?  Are you a little up and down according to how it's been of late?  It's so frustrating to be this far into spring and still be plagued by rain.

  1. I'm glad you got to enjoy the brief sunshine! Yesterday was beautiful and rain free here (perfect for our friends wedding!) but today the clouds are back and it's supposed to be another week of storms and rain! I'm a bit frustrated by the lack of sunshine too. At least it's getting a little warmer! :)
