The clocks changed in the UK on Saturday night which heralds the start of British Summer. Let’s hope it’s better than the last.
For bloggers in the UK you’re now 12 hours behind us in New Zealand so when you see the sun rising think of us looking at the moon. The night sky here continues to be drammatic with the limited light polution over Kaitoke giving us some magnificent sights.
As British Summer arrives here in New Zealand we’re definitely into Autumn and the rainy season is starting much to the relief of water planners and people living on tank water. It actually took two days of persistent drizzle and showers to fill up the tanks.
Much has been written in the papers in recent days of the prolonged sunshine and lack of rain. Even Wellingtonians have a hose pipe ban and looking at the water resevoirs just down from our house the collection still isn’t going well enough to meet Wellington’s needs. Mental note to photoblog and show you what I mean.
Anyway, friends and family remember the time difference change – at least it’s easy to think 12 hours difference. But don’t get used to it, we move to Daylight Saving next weekend and it will be all change again.
