I do have to apologise for being away from this blog for so long – much longer than I anticipated. It didn't help that after being unwell for so long, I had relapses (and new illnesses!) of various sorts, which meant having to catch up on a lot at work. This left very little time for blogging.
Then, I went to Adelaide for most of last week for work (our National Conference, and sorry, I can't say much more than that) – boy was I busy there! It was hard slog, and in no way like the gravy train. None of us had our snouts in the trough – unlike this great pig sculpture in Adelaide's Rundle Mall (above).
Needless to say, when I got back to Melbourne on the weekend, I preferred to spend my time catching up with my family (whom I missed terribly!) and getting thrown into the first days of school holidays, rather than boring you with the details here.
Over the weekend, my sister and her family were down from Brisbane for a couple of days on their way through to Tasmania for a holiday, and so we all trooped over to the zoo on Monday – as you can see. I have to say I'm glad to be back in Melbourne! And I hope that I'll be blogging a little more regularly, so remember to check back here again!
