Canberra was great. It was brilliant to catch up with the family and finally have a Christmas with all of us together. I loved spending time with all the family, if only for such a short time. It is depressing that the holiday is almost over and I’m back to work in 12 hours (can you hear me sobbing??). But, I guess most people are in a similar situation.
While waiting for the plane this morning, my mother asked me how my computer was going. I told her, “fine, but every time you asks me that, the computer seems to have a fit and crashes, so don’t ask me again.” Sure enough, I get home today and the computer was on a go slow for ages, then decided it had had enough and shut itself down. It is now co-operating, but I’m not sure for how long, so this post has been long in coming but will be short in content.
I made it back home (finally) and have been familiarising myself with home. The first thing I did was check the garden: the weeds thrived, the vegies didn’t do so well. But, with my Christmas present from Mum and Dad (a gift voucher to a local nursery), I can happily go and replace all I’ve lost. I was actually prepared to come back to greater horrors that I saw, so I’m not concerned. I am disappointed to notice that the sandflies and mosquitoes are still out in force and I was attacked already when I pulled out some of the big weeds and dead stuff.
I unpacked soon after I arrived home. My bag is now empty. However, I’m still to move the clothes from the lounge room…..
