I'm back

The golden hour from Mt Coot-tha

I'm back from my trip to Brisbane. I had a wonderful time. It's a beautiful part of the world, the sun shone (I had to wear sunscreen! In winter!) and I loved meeting my online friends, Gillian and Victoria, and spending time with them. Gillian and I saw whales! Victoria and I saw many pademelons!

I got back late Thursday night and I'm still recovering. Holidays are exhausting! I'll write more about my trip and post more photos in the next few days because I'm too tired to do it now. 

Luke left for his trip to England and Ireland about 10 days ago and is away for another week. I really enjoy having the place to myself, but I miss him, more than I have other times we've been apart. I hope he's having a ball, but I'm looking forward to him returning.  

I've made it to two months without buying any shoes or clothes. Two months! Yeah, OK that's not very long, but I'm pleased with myself, particularly as it's been easy.

Pleased to hear you had a nice time. I thought pademelons were in Tassie.

I've only seen one pademelon before and that was in Queensland. Well, that's what I thought, but seeing them bouncing about at the Mary Cairncross Reserve near Maleny last week made me realise I had seen them in Tassie too - they were everywhere, practically throwing themselves at our car, as we drove in the dark through the mountains a few years ago.
