Hello everyone,

We hope everyone is well and the weather isn't too depressing! From what we have seen on the news over here, the UK has been hit pretty bad by floods but luckily not near Bradford! Not to brag but the weather over the past couple of days has probably been the hottest we have experienced in NZ, nearing 30 degrees.
