Aussie bum
Great to catch up on the news. F - just to let you know that the Aussies got whitewashed in the netball over here - 3-0! Sophie and I went to go and see the Masters snooker a couple of weeks ago and we ended up on the telly. Sophie liked the look of Neil Robertson\\\'s bum but later on in the tournament changed her allegiance to Mark Selby. She prefered his playing style - nothing to do with bottom quality allegedly. Selby prevailed in the end so the right choice. Just watching the Aussie open now. come on Murray! It\\\'s been fab reading the blogs - looking forward to the NZ stories.

Very cool that you are in Sydney.. I live in Melbourne and was watching the fireworks on the TV, and to be honest this year they were pretty ordinary! Sorry that you didn't get to see a better set. :(

The Dust Devil

I am amazed that crazy Poms (my presumption) were quite happy to hitch a ride from Darwin to Cairns via Uluru...seemingly unfazed it was to be for 1,000s of kms!!! But what a ride. Forever South to Mt Connor, Uluru & Kata Tjuta to weave their magic on you...then you headed forever East to Atherton Tablelands to Cairns...guided by an accommodating guy who wanted company for the long, long drive. My sister married an ex Grenadier guard in Katherine N.T...hitched up their vehicles and crawled across the Top End to Ravenshoe in the Atherton Tablelands...so I have some appreciation of the distances! Gotta say its nice to hear of others who travel the distances of this vast land. In OZ they are often Grey Nomads criss-crossing the country in nomadic retirement...a definite on our bucket list.

Great stuff
Fiona, a great read again, keep it up. You two are loving it and good luck to you both. Wine, chocolate, coffee and sun, it's my idea of heaven. I have just taken redundancy at work and I'm looking forward to taking it easy and attacking my bucket list! Take care Alan xx

How are you?
Hi both. Sorry it's been a while since we've been in touch but there's been a lot going on. The Olympics and Paralympics were fantastic. Looking for other things to do now though. Got tickets for the velodrome, swimming and athletics for the Paralympics. Saw world records galore. And got to see a British gold as well in the pool. Sophie's new job is going well, so all good here. Hope you two are both well and look forward to the next instalment.

About Time
Thanks for this you seem to be still enjoying yourselves. Vanessa and I did a trip up the swan river to visit the wineries and I'm sure we went to Houghton. Just lie you we only went for the free wines. Joan

Hi Michael and Fiona. Great to hear from you. Sounds like life is treating you well on your adventures. With all the wildlife photos perhaps you could do a spot on Springwatch. Another job suggestion Michael is to go on any remake of Baywatch (although you might need to ditch the snorkel). When you were in Bungarra did you go to any parties? If so did you see Silvio Berlusconi? Apparently he frequents there quite often. We're gearing up for the Jubilee weekend. Typically it's going to rain but shouldn't dampen everyone's spirits. Might even be some coverage down where you are. And then the Olympics - got some more tickets now so looking forward to that and of course there's the torch relay - excitement mounting in both Dorset and Basildon. Looking forward to hearing about the next stage of your travels. Keep well and speak soon.

Up to date at last!
As promised, we have finally got around to looking at the blog-in fact we've just spent almost two happy hours enjoying the tour. It was lovely to hear from you today and a very happy easter to you both:-) Very much looking forward to hearing your next adventures although I (Sophie!) get very squeamish at your tales of the Aussie insects! I just don't know if I could handle them although I have to admit that the views are probably worth it! Steve here. Happy Easter to you both. Great to catch up on the blog. Sounds like you're having a fab time. Watching the Masters. Westwood's in with a shout. Not normally into golf but my approach into the 18th (second time round on the local 9-hole course) makes me think that it might be me in a few years. Just having my first glass of wine after Lent. Sophie's had her sugar rush after a chocolate egg. We're both happy! And after cleaning the windows even more so (there is nothing less humdrum than cleaning the windows to the sound of local ornothological delights). Bonnet de douche and look forward to hearing the next instalment.
