Life has been a bit crazy…

Hi there. We have been a bit slack with the blog for a couple of weeks. There are lots of things going on at the moment for us.  

We have bought another house…

Yes, that’s right. Gadget and I have bought a house.


It’s got 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (yay!!) and a pool (the kids are saying yay!!).

From the outside, it is the world’s most boring house:


I have no idea what the previous owner was thinking when he put all those rocks in the front garden … but we have found a home for them (thanks, Sarah & Laurie). And the palm tree will have to go. If you know of anyone who wants it, get in touch. In fact, the whole front garden will be full of arid zone, water efficient plants (acacias, grevilleas, eremophilas etc).  We will have to grow these fast because there is a street light right across the road and all the bedrooms are on the front side of the house. Rhiannon and I hate the fact that every power pole in Alice Springs has to have a #$&#$& streetlight on it. We like darkness to sleep in. The kind of darkness you find out bush on a moonless night. In the meantime, we are going for 100% blockout curtains and blinds.

I will put some more photos up when Gadget down loads them from the camera.

Also, Gadget is down at Watarrka (Kings Canyon) for a month pretending to be Chief District Ranger and next week, I’m off to Katherine to do some real anthropology (for a change).

More to follow,
