Well we are in the midst of winter here, the ground is very wet from rain / hail / snow and there is little drying from the sun but springs coming. We know this as the days are getting longer. It's no longer dark going to and from work each day.
The bikes and kayak are hibernating but we did get the tramping boots out again last weekend and walked the tracks on the Bluff hill for 3 hours. We also appreciate the Splash Palace swimming pool in town with a hot pool and sauna, good on cold days.
We have just bought a slow cooker so if any of you have good recipes to share we would appreciate some.
On the first day we put a beef roast in and it was so good, moist and tender and yummy.
