Well, to explain the lack of blog for a while- I've been travelling incognito as I went around the (Australian) countryside surprising friends and family who had no idea I was home. Lex at first thought I was a recording of a ukulele, both Struth and Luce didn't seem to register that I was back for a good 5 minutes, Dad looked at me funny then went a bit teary and Mum asked me who I was sitting on her verandah! 😊 I just arrived at Mum's today, but have spend the last few days at Dad's chilling among the trees dreaming up plans for an earth house I want to build up in the back of his block. It was most peaceful, and I've pretty much been doing the same thing as Alaya did when she got back, just walking around with my head in the air going "Yep, it's just as I thought! Western Australia is the best place in the world!". Patriotic? Nahh! Just the cold, hard bloody truth, mate! 😊

Future site of my dream-home! A beautiful spot right near the brook (good for hydroelectricity!). I've decided I want to build an earthen dome here.

The whole thing sits on a bit of a hill in the bush about 500 metres away from dad's place.
