What a welcome we have today from Mother Nature. It’s the first day of winter down here in New Zealand and we woke to be greeted by a sprinkling of snow on the Tararua Ranges behind our home. After a very long drawn out rather mild Autumn, (not that we’re complaining), Winter has arrived. Isn’t Mother Nature wonderful!
Over our back fence, first snow of the season
And just to remind us that none of us are getting any younger, look what we spied in the local Medical Centre - a parking space especially for mobility scooters. Luckily the pair of us aren’t quite at this stage yet, but when we are, we know we will be able to drive down on our scooters and park them outside.

What was the story behind this number plate spotted recently, we wondered. Its not as if the car in question was a super-duper sort which would bring the owner a whole lot of money once it was sold. It’s interesting what you see on the roads.
