Anne-Elise Smithson: What activities do you get up to in the colder months of the year?

I actually don’t mind winters in New Zealand so I don’t let the cold stop me from doing most things – what’s a little bit of wind when you go for a walk on the beach, right? Having said that, I can imagine there will be more movie nights at the Bridgeway, and I’m keen to pull out that pasta machine I recently bought and hold a few homemade pasta dinner parties – it’s easier to host friends at home when it’s rainy and cold.
