How's the month been treating you?
If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, chances are you're enjoying some beautiful sunny weather. But here in the South, we've just been through our coldest month of the year.
You know, I used to say that winter was my favourite season, and I'd rather be cold than hot, any day of the week. When you're cold, I would say, you can always throw on another layer of clothing, or get under a blanket to warm up. When you're hot, it's not socially acceptable to walk around naked... and even if it were, it wouldn't help because you sweat so much.
This winter, though, has really hit me hard. I guess it's because last year, I was still working in a heated office, so I had some escape from the cold, but this year, working from home (which is amazing, don't get me wrong!), there's no escape because I don't have an aircon or heater, so I've been bitterly cold.
I did manage to read six books this month, though. Which is fantastic.
How about you? Have you been huddled under a blanket, or lying on the beach? Don't forget, you can reply to this email any time you want to chat with me.
And now, on to this month's news....
