You know when I said I wanted it to be autumn already? Well, I lied!
Its been rainy, grey, rainy, wet, grey, rainy and a little bit more rainy for the past week and it will continue on into the weekend. And while I don't want it to be the sort of sticky, ring-your-clothes-out-every-five-minutes-because-you're-sweating-so-much-because-its-so-gosh-darn-hot type weather, I would like it to be the sunny warm Sydney I have come to love.
David and I both feel the cold, and everyone has been saying how much we must love the weather at the moment because it must be so much warmer than Dunedin (which, I might add, it is. Dunedin was minus 1 the other day). But David and I are soft and will be even softer when we go back to visit Dunedin in November.
I love autumn colours, I love autumn leaves, and I love the thought of dressing cosily. But truth be told, I don't like the cold and I am bad at layering, and all I want to do is wear something simple and pretty that doesn't require much thought in the morning when getting dressed (also, simple pretty dresses are in abundance in my wardrobe, layering essentials are not. Come on customs!!).
These photos were taken by David on Sunday while we were waiting for the bus which was very very late. It was pouring down and cold. We were supposed to go to a poetry reading. We went to Kmart instead, bought a queen sized faux mink blanket for the bed and went home.
PS) Do you like my hair? I love it so much more when its short, sweet and curly. So much so that I made David cut more of it off on Saturday night because it wasn't short enough. I taught David how to layer, now he is a hair cutting pro. I think that will be his next career move if academic life doesn't suit.
