It’s been a little while since I’ve blogged, and not without good reason.
Coming back to Darwin from England is, for both Dean and I, emotionally exhausting. While we know that Australia is where we’re supposed to be, leaving behind Dean’s family is a nightmare, that leaves him sad and me guilty. This time, thankfully, it was just marginally easier, but only through repetition. We bounced back faster, and have come into February with a much better idea of where we’re going. There are new adventures on the horizon, for sure.
But in the meantime, there was work and uni and my own family. With my youngest brother going off to university, my own collection of uni assignments due, and work calling, I barely had time to sleep let alone to blog. So it’s not an apology, because I feel a break was well deserved. After all, there’s no point forcing myself to post, when I have neither the energy nor the motivation.
The good news is, we’re starting to come out of our manic start to the year. Work has settled into a routine for me, the university semester is nearly over, and life goes on in Darwin as usual. Dean and I have both settled back somewhat into the tropical groove, relishing the breaking rains and monsoon storms. It looks to be a big wet this year, with flooding and maybe even a cyclone forecast, but we’ll see how it goes.
In the meantime we’re just enjoying being back in the heat, getting lots of walking, and enjoying the pretty tropical scenes all around us. I’ve been using my olloclip lens a bit more, and Darwin has been absolutely performing in terms of both sunsets and storm fronts. This season can be a killer for the rain, but boy are the clouds incredible.
So, hi again, and you should be seeing me around here a bit more regularly! I have a few pretty cool things to announce in the next few weeks, so as they say: stay tuned.
