We have had a few good days of sunshine in Melbourne. Don't be fooled, those of you reading this in the northern hemisphere! That does not mean it is warm. Winter in Melbourne is a very chilly affair, with icy early morning windscreens, layers of clothing for me (I knew to bring lots this time) and bundling up in the ever-present scarf. But as long as the sun is shining - who cares!
I spent most of the morning at my son's new cafe, Arboretum. It's been open for just over a week, and so it was good to see people pouring in the door and tucking into good food, my daughter-in-law's scrumptious baking, and carefully prepared coffee. The place was jumping, which is very encouraging for a first weekend of trading.
