Winter is coming.... to Adelaide


My apologies for the post title. I wanted to do a blog post about the cold weather and of course "Winter is Coming" is all I could think of. I don't even like Game of Thrones. I seem to be on my own with that opinion though so I will just accept that I have terrible taste in TV shows. Yes, TV shows. I haven't read the books either. But I hear they are very good so I promise to try them. Wow. I think it would have been easier to just not use the post title I did. I feel all defensive now.

Moving on.

How cold and dark is it in Adelaide at the moment? I know it was sunny today, and for quite a bit of yesterday but still. Cold sometimes! I can't remember being this freaked out by daylights savings turning back. Is it because I am now in my 30s and I notice weather more? Is it a slippery slope to watching the Weather Channel nonstop and commenting on gales in some remote part of New South Wales that I have never visited, and probably never will?

Anyway. It's cold. And dark. And I have photo evidence.

Here are my photos! Notice how most of them are from my lounge room. That's because I don't venture out in the rain. I've discovered a new favourite pastime since moving to the city. Watching people run from the rain.

Rainy and dark

Rainy and not so dark

A random addition from my weekend Fleurieu visit

Not rainy and not dark. Grey though.
Oh and here is a bonus photo of my umbrella. I bought it in Poland last July. Everytime I use it I stare at everyone who passes by, waiting for someone to grab my arm and ask where I got that gorgeous umbrella. No one has yet. If you happen to see me out and about please ask. Just so I can say "Poland" and feel very worldly.

  1. what a beautiful umbrella Christabel! I would definitely be stopping you to ask where you got it!!
    I used to live in South Terrace a long time ago, in a really old colonial style place. I think it was 108, and it had lovely old railing on the first floor.
