I'm housesitting in Anglesea, watching a red parrot in the backyard and enjoying reading in front of the fire. Japan was a blast as we had always expected, with eighteen teenagers along for the ride. They were fantastic actually and you can read more details of our time in Japan at our blog of the trip, here. I missed my family though, it was fun catching up and continuing to catch up as we unwind down the coast. At last it is raining in Australia, and goodness knows, we need it! I'm just wondering whether to get out the wetsuit and take on the winter waves... if the sun would just come out, I might actually do so!
