Honey I'm home....

The Wanderer returns! At least for a short while... There is just time enough to gather everyone back into our Australian nest, before launching into the new year ahead (Australian Universities have incredibly only just started for the year)...We do however find the time to book some more holidays, so don't put your suitcase away just yet!

My last trip lasted 100 days, and took me from Australia to India, to Europe and back again. I certainly covered some ground....When I was in Bristol, UK I found this sign saying I was 12,489 N miles from Melbourne...


Before I went off traveling I bought this little bird below, which I thought looked a bit like a Wandering Wren. I left her on the kitchen bench looking after everyone. Today I thought my wren might like a trip out into the garden, so here she is!


It was a shock to be back because Melbourne has experienced some scorching weather in the past few months, many of the trees in the garden are looking burnt and frazzled. We went into a premature autumn as leaves turned brown and fell from the trees.



This record breaking spell of hot weather fortunately comes on the heels of a very wet winter. It has been over 30 degrees (celsius) for the longest period of time since records began. Today it is 36 degrees on the cars temperature gauge. Here is Mutt above trying to find a cool patch of green amongst the scorched leaves.....

Do you like my new look blog site? This is entirely due to my wonderful Blog Professor Neesie Natters who is so generous with her time, ideas and encouragement. Of course I have a long, long way to go to reach Neesie's dizzy heights... If you want to see what I mean, pop over to visit Neesie at http://neesienatters.blogspot.com/....

I've learnt a lot about blogging whilst I have been away. Although the more you do, the more you realise there is so much more to learn. I was determined to complete the whole trip with just my iPad and iPhone. Now I am back to view the photos on my old desktop I can see wot my brother was on about when he said 'your photos are naff'! I think I am loosing resolution transposing them from the iPad or iPhone through my photo collage site. But if any experienced bloggers have any tips to improve my photo resolution, do share!

In the meantime, it's good to be back....to blogging of course silly!!!

See you again soon!
