In leave of my absence...

I actually have no idea what the above means, but it sounds pretty good seeing as I haven't posted for almost a week.  

Each day during that week has been topsy turvy and entirely without schedule (that's my excuse).

Right now I'm getting used to my shiny new laptop and coming to terms with the fact that having your own computer means you can use it whenever you want to.  Oh, the luxury.  I'm being dramatic because I practically used our other computer whenever I wanted to.  

In all the transferring of files from old computer to new, I've been paranoid about somehow accidentally deleting every single photo (as I have in the past), so I've got copies of the same photos stored everywhere imaginable.  They'll probably still be turning up in random inexplicable areas of the hardrive in ten years - areas which I am sure I never use but contain lots of files with gibberish names.  I can't delete any of those can I?  Or my computer won't turn on or something.  I'm not a techy mouse, people.  Not a techy mouse at all. 

Here are some of my favourite photos to tide you over while I get back to work...

And can I just say, if Google Chrome gives me another little red line under my words which are spelt in the AUSTRALIAN WAY.  I am going to SCREAM.  Can you believe it's even put a little red line under the word 'spelt'.  In another few years my spelling confidence is going to be shot.

Photographic evidence of turning 20.  I ordered everyone else to light it up so I could take some shots.

 Perfectionists everywhere will notice that the font on my watermark in the above picture is ugly and not at all mousie.  This is because my Mouse Files font did not exist on my brand spanking new laptop and I just now downloaded it. 

At the National Vietnam Veterans Museum on Phillip Island.  I've always wanted to try on this kind of hat.

Looking down over the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall in the Melbourne Recital Centre.  Millie B and I got to prowl around at our leisure during Melbourne Open House this year.

This photo is my desktop background as I count down the days till summer 2012.  I can't wait to hit the beach properly in November.

My brother speaks to a seagull at the Nobbies on Phillip Island.

Raisin toast.  The Cure For Any First World Problems.  Yummmm.


  1. you know what? raisin toast makes the BEST french toast. You don't need to spice the french toast mixture, coz the flavour is already in the bread. Little tip I picked up from a fancy restaurant where I once bought french toast for lunch. Now I make my own.

  2. chrome://settings/languages
