Off to Oz

We're heading for the airport shortly, if we can fight our way through the thousands of fleeing expats abandoning their Mercedes, Porsches and Large 4X4s, to head for Oz.

A couple of days in Singapore then we're due in Sydney on Sunday. After a week there we're going on to our home on the NSW Central Coast and, if there are no fires, further, much further, north to Queensland's Sunshine Coast.

Last week the temperatures were in the mid-forties celcius, this week the forecast is telling me it's in the low twenties with rain periods through Sunday and maybe further ahead.

Not so good for those of us on holiday but excellent for the firefighters - although NSW hasn't had deaths or property damage we have fires burning.

We have friends and family to catch up with, a lot of driving, sightseeing, so I'm sure I won't be spending much time on the computer.

See you in three weeks.

We came because we wanted to watch the incredible development as it happened - when we get tired of it we'll go back to Australia.

Anon@7.20...there's always something new to see because so much is happening at the same time and at great speed.

Mrs Seabee has an interesting and challenging job which she enjoys, so it will be her call when we go back.
