Good morning, Canberra.
Welcome to Monday, I hope it's a good start to the week for you.
After a week of sunshine that temperature sure did drop yesterday. Today we're headed for a cloudy top of 20. It doesn't look like we'll be getting much rain again this week, with only a medium chance of rain forecast for Saturday.

A former staff member at Bimberi Youth Justice Centre has described how he was ordered to restrain a young boy, tie the boy's hands with plastic zipties, and then lock him in his room.
"The boy spent the next 15 minutes rolling around on the floor crying as he continued to trip over whilst trying to stand up with his hands tied behind his back," Mark Fletcher told Fairfax Media.
"The staff present found this very humorous for some reason."
Mr Fletcher left the detention centre in 2016 and has criticised the government's response to allegations of abuse of inside the facility.

Imagine this - a five metre bell-tent, set up on a deck looking down on a vineyard. Floorboards, a rug, a solar-powered fridge and a king-size bed.
There's a catch though - the toilet is down the hill. Even though everything else sounds like the height of luxury, I'm not sure about getting too close to nature.
I'm not sure this is my kind of holiday, but I'm glad Jil Hogan tried it for the rest of us.
