So the delay ended up being an hour, or thereabouts, and we weren't able to make up time in the air and then there was traffic at the other end...but eventually I got back to the house. And what a stark difference in temperatures. While much of Australia was melting, literally, I returned to a temperature hovering around the zero mark. Lucky I was prepared!
Today was one of those stunning blue sky days, the type that deceive into thinking it is warm outside.

|Massed trunks, branches, twigs|
It wasn't. But a stroll around the neighbourhood on the way to the shops warmed me a bit. There is something about the stark tree branches against a blue sky that says 'winter' in a way we really don't quite have in Brisbane.
And one or two surprises too. Who knew there is a fruit tree in the park...
And it is back to work tomorrow...
