Tumultuous two


I've had six jobs, been fired from one, quit without notice from another, and walked out on one in disgust.

We've had two places of residence. One of which is our own.

I've bought two motorbikes, one of which I've sold, and two more pushbikes.

Motorbiked the Great Ocean Road in one day. Rode the Australian Alpine Epic and Mt Buller downhill tracks.

Owned two cars (one sold), and a 4WD, which may well be sold today, if I can accept a hefty loss.

Many acquaintances made, and a very small handful I'd call true friends. Two more, whom we no longer call friends.

Mountains climbed, rivers and deserts crossed, swam in surf, with seals, and dolphins.

Joined the local fire brigade as a volunteer firefighter,

Attended two weddings and one funeral.

Two years since we first called Australia home. We will know no other.
