Indian summer? More like monsoon season…

by Julie Alpine-Crabtree

Thank you Leapfrog Nursery for the umbrella, on loan from the lost property drawer, so at least one of us could stay dry during the deluge.

And thank god for the lone cab with light on, which provided a rescue from the scaffolding we were huddled under, transported us the final few hundred metres home.

These days such an extravagance is less about the blow-dry, more about the dressed-for-summer baby. Really.
