This is to answer QOD's question in her comment on my last post....yes, this IS how cold it can get here in Victoria. Thing is, this state is amazing. You can drive from the sea on a nice day, and go 3 hours across the state to get to snow if you wanted to. I guess we are pretty lucky like that.
We went to Mt Macedon tonight after the kids finished school because of reports of snow on the Mount...and snow it did. Families came along and all the kids were squeeling with delight.
Me, I hate the snow and the cold, although I do think it is magical as the snow falls. I just liked seeing all the kids play and have a great time. They ganged up on their dad a lot with snow balls, it was very funny.
Off to hugg Mia, she is in a funny mood because she had slept some of the way home from the Mount. Their bed time is now but it will be somewhat interrupted from their short nap in the car.
