So today is an extremely cold day - cold, wet and miserable - plus I got woken up in the wee hours of the morning by a thunderstorm that hit Wellington that felt as if it was directly above our house.
But on the up side, I did get to work a half day today and the reason why was because I took a half day so that Jess and I could spend some time with our friend Georgie who is visiting for about 10 days from the UK.
Unfortunately for us Georgie is spending most of her time in New Zealand in the South Island (and who can blame her really) but it was good to have a chance to catch up with her today.
Unfortunately some of our plans didn't work out so well - like a waterfront walk with a Gelato. But we did manage to get manicures/pedicure, eat lots of good food and do a bit of shopping.
So all in all not a bad way to spend an awfully cold and wet afternoon - here's hoping for a bit of winter sunshine tomorrow!
