The indeterminate year

I’ve just[1] had a new year greeting from my brother and sister-in-law in NZ.  Not quite the island of the day before, but silly games with the timezone make for a seasonal pastime, and the kiwis are onto a winner!

Apart from that, I like this season for another reason: the worst of the winter gloom is past, and daylight hours are getting perceptibly longer.  Helped this year by a sustained spell of fine, sunny weather.

[1] Actually a couple of hours ago, but just saw it.
