If there’s not a lot of colour and not a lot of warmth outside, sometimes you’ve just gotta make it for yourself.
Winter in Brisbane means crisp mornings and beautiful blue sky days.

Winter = July = Le Tour – late nights beside a raging fire watching magnificent scenery and an absorbing contest (particularly in this year’s Tour de Carnage); and taking in the vocabulary – maillot jaune, echelon, gruppetto, peloton, soigneur, domestique, Lantern Rouge…

Winter for me is mainly about football (soccer) season so today I was out in the pouring rain running around getting drenched, laughing and training hard getting ready for our upcoming season pink rain coat and all.
