5520 already!

Today is the shortest day in the Southern Hemisphere, an as such is the Inca new year.

As I've written before I always feel its a shame we don't have a decent midwinter festival in Australia and somehow the Queen's birthday long weekend doesn't quite cut it.

To try and remedy this J and I try and do something special every year on or about the solstice. This year we had our celebration a little early with a hunk of roast organic lamb with potatoes, pumpkin and sprouts on Saturday, all washed down with a decent Sticks Pinot Noir.

I'm not advocating mass celebrations, but if you're in the mood raise a glass to the warming rays of the sun this evening.

Happy 5520!
