I have finished at the Kitchen, spent a week lounging in the sun and now my life has started again.

I went home on the weekend for my mum's birthday. I caught the train (an experience which always makes me wish I owned a car). but if I owned a car then I wouldn't have seen what I saw.

I happened to be looking out the window (my book was being boring) just before the train went under the Westgate Bridge on the way out of town. there was a dead man spread eagled under the bridge. he was in a black suit with a crisp white shirt and an expensive watch, and there were three policemen standing around looking puzzled.

Then, as we were passing the exit to Hoppers Crossing, I saw a wedding party. The bride and groom were crouched in that yellow flowering weed having their photo taken and all the wedding cars were lined up on the side of the highway.

So far this week I have got a job making coffee, (which starts on Friday); I have arranged to go to the zoo with that boy whom I emailed because I liked his name and I have got a job teaching English in China, which starts in January. I can't help but wonder what is going to happen with the rest of the week, seeing that we are only up to Tuesday.

This was the nine o'clock news



This was going to be the craft room, but it told me, the other day when I was home sick, that it wants to be a study.

There is now much less stuff in it (but where has the stuff gone you ask).

My room, I swear this is a little neater now, and has more furniture.

Jem's (I swear it's a little messier now) (the photo flatly refused to rotate, so you'll have to tip your head:)

Kitchen - much the same state, really, just different quantities of mess.

This space got much neater, but is now covered in piles of yarn (I have been having a splendid time, playing in the stash)

This is where I was talking to you (member I said I took a picture?)

Bathroom, taps keep falling off in the shower. And, yes, those are all my toiletries in the bath (they were in a yarn bag and I needed it back in a hurry. Now I don't know where to put them all)

I didn't take a picture of the toilet, you can see that when you get here.

The only day I have spent at home was the day that I was sick, so the mess hasn't moved far. I am looking forward to a full measure of good health and spare time. And now I am going to troop guiltily to bed (this late hour is exactly why I shouldn't be allowed the internet (or gin)).

Be well.
