Back From Oz

We've been back from Australia for a week and a bit now. My body clock is still mixed up though. Keeping strange hours will do that. I've had a bunch of things to post but through a mix of ennui and despair at the thought of using Wordpress, they've remained squirreled away in my noggin.

Until now...<cue drumroll>

What I Did This Summer, by Daniel
We started our trip by going to the wedding of my sister, Jesse, and Jimmy Matthews in Palm Cove (near Cairns). That was a blast. Got to catch up with a bunch of people, including relatives from my Mum's side of the family, who I haven't seen since I was 14. It's still strange to think of Jess as "Mrs. Jesse Matthews" but I expect I'll get used to it.

Tanya and I stayed with her parents while we were in Brisbane. We hung out with them and the cats and hid in the air-conditioning (I'd almost forgotten what humidity was like). We visited my Grandma and Auntie Glenda down in Kirra, stopping along the way at Yatala Pies and Pimpama Strawberry Farm along the way to sample their delicious wares.

We caught up with lots of friends (though not nearly enough), met many cute babies and generally flitted about trying to make the most of the short time we had. If we didn't get a change to catch up with you please don't feel slighted. We'll be back and as they say "absinthe makes the heart grow fonder".
