As at least one person may have noticed on Aidan's blog, we're back up and running!! We have our new house very nearly organised (except for the massive pile of empty boxes), and we have an internet connection again, yay! Aside from that, I really don't have that much to add. Work is still going well, I still enjoy what I do and like my colleagues. We had Andrew here over the weekend, which was great, and he brought us gifts to remind us of Melbourne! I should probably put some pics up...


This is the view over the city of Canberra. It doesn't look much like a city... it's practically the bush, but that's our capital. It is a very pretty city, but a tad on the dull side.


I believe I mentioned that one of my colleagues is a gilder, and this is what he did to my fingernail. It looked extremely awesome, until it fell off because I didn't look after it properly. That is actually real 23 carat gold leaf.



These pictures illustrate what our new house looks like: a mess.

You should build a huge fort with all of those boxes!

I'm so happy that you have an internet connection...and your nail was awesome...next time do the middle finger so that when you flip someone the bird you can razzle-dazzle as you frazzle.

Andrew - I know that women in Hong Kong will pay a couple of grand to get all their nails gilded. I don't know how much my one finger was worth!

Menchie - we'll need all the luck we can get...

HE - we've actually offered the boxes to a local childcare centre, so THEY can make forts with them.
