We just want you to know that the Weather Pixie has a server problem and will apparently be back as soon as possible!
We didn't want you to think that we're hiding the fact that it's getting more and more Autumnal here! The mornings and evenings are quite cool but it's still getting up to about 21C during the day - although the sun didn't actually come out today! You can check on this weather map in the meantime. Yesterday was a bit unusual according to the weatherman and it was only 3C overnight in Christchurch, golly, that's almost frosty. Actually I went out in bare feet to put the washing on the line and my toes got decidedly icy yesterday morning.
When the pixie is back I'll set her to South Island where it'll be quite a lot cooler anyway - like going up to Scotland in October. We leave Terry's on Tuesday to head southwards, catching up with some old and new friends on the way which we're really looking forward to.
We then have about a month in South Island and I hope I can get access to computers to share photos of what promises to be stunning scenery with you. I'm thinking I really should have brought a small computer with me (yours would have been ideal Sara...), it's easy to get a wireless connection but not so easy to actually find a PC although we've just found out that the libraries here provide free access if you can get the local students to move over.
