Experiened -16 in Edinburgh.

Which is actually in Scotland.

I think the coldest I experienced down in SE England was about -10.

South east Australia is about to get a very cold snap which will extend up to SE Queensland at least by the end of the weekend.  We are forecasted 3C on Sunday night which, for where I live, will be easily the coldest I have seen here.  Might see our first ground frost here.

I'm having the shingles jab this week, if any one gets a reaction it will be me! Watch this space.

pneumonia jab here is I think for ever 70's lasts 5 years and renewed once. 

Had the shingles jab yesterday and no reaction at all, but had a bad reaction to the flu jab, so you never know what you will react to.

I experienced -25C when I was working in Poland. The Poles however insisted that wasn't cold. "Wait 'til it gets to -40C. That's Cold".

I get annoyed because someone has been parking out the front of my house.

Even though I don't own the road it is still annoying.

Because a neighbour has 4 cars in their household they expect to park in front of everyone else houses and then my son comes to see me and can't park in front.

Really a resident should be able to park in front of his own house shouldn't he ? At least in the suburbs.

It's the shortest day of the year here today.  Lovely bright sunny day.  14C.  This is my Christmas cactus so in the northern hemisphere is would be flowering at Christmas time not in June.

Thanks guys. They kept him in overnight and probably tonight as well, trying to get his fluids in balance. He has congestive heart failure and an infection so they’re just pumping him with antibiotics and diuretics at the moment. Every time takes its toll on us all though!

Just read your post Quoll, sorry to hear you're going through hard times with your dad. I've done the dawn watch and it ain't fun. Hope both your dad AND YOU are recovering.

Same .  Hope he recovers soon. Nothing worse than the worry you have when a loved one is ill.

They have a bookshop at your local cinema? How unusual it's normally just a popcorn stand? 

I know it's a stupid joke but sometimes I just can't resist!

Our local cinema does have a bookshop!      A classy affair it is too - books all about film.   ?

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Lovely day here.  I had Harry all lined up for this photo but he took off after a rabbit.  This is his favourite rabbit hunting place.  After that he managed to stand still for a pic at his second favourite hunting place   .................  this time it's crab hunting.

Last piece of the puzzle complete today. I was given the go ahead by Occ Health to start the Nursing course in Sept. All I’m waiting for now is the start date.
