It was the Aphelion on the weekend, when the earth is farthest from the sun. That isn't supposed to affect the temperature, but I would happily argue with that. Traipsed around lovely Sydney trying to get warm, failed. Bought 2m of blue velvet ribbon because I felt like it. Took photos of birds and planes and the sun, which is 3% smaller than it will be at the Perihelion, in 6 months time, when it is closest to the earth.
