Happy Australia Day!
Last week Mike headed into Perth for the week to play on the rural cricket team, and so I was left on the farm for 4 days to tend to the animals and pets. I only lasted 4 days. Have you ever spent 4 days in utter solitude? It’s actually a very difficult thing for me to do!
The evenings left me sleepless and terrified. Tess would be growling in the bed beside me (something she’s not really ever done before) at nothing… Which obviously freaked me out a bit in the middle of the night. I started worrying about serial killers.
I’ve spent the last four sunny, glorious days at the beach with Brian and Tessa.
The tide was headed out this morning and I was able to test out my camera under water. A little curious octopus kept trying to grab my camera from me! I was laughing, and quite amused. He must have been hungry.
Mike came back today and I was so glad to see him. We had a bbq with all of the locals, and snorkelled for a while in the ocean before we headed to the farm together.
