    That's a bit warm for early October, isn't it?! Glad we're in England at the moment and making the most of an Indian Summer which seems to be fading fast now! Heavy rain and high winds for the next couple of days, so will no doubt be glad to be back in dear old Adelaide in November. Forecast for England is that we're in for a 'Killer Winter'! Ooh, think I prefer hot to freezing cold; can always go and sit in a cold bath!
