Well, it’s happened again. I’ve had car trouble. Driving from Coober Pedy to Arkaringa and the Painted Desert, one of the clips holding my back window in place broke. Of course it was the strongest …
The Australian outback truly is remarkable. And ever changing as you drive through it. I left Coober Pedy heading north for the Painted Desert. First stop, Kanku/Breakaways again. Last night I drove in from the …
Coober Pedy. It’s not as I imagined it would be. Yes, there are a lot of opal mines, surrounded by even more mounds of dirt, looking a bit like crab holes in wet sand. You …
Halligans Bay is the only place you can camp at Kati Thanda (Lake Eyre), and I have it all to myself. Well, not quite to myself. There is a bird who appears to be trying …
Like most places of interest on the Oodnadatta Track, Coward Springs was originally a siding for the old Ghan railway line. When they were putting the track through, somebody decided that the best way to …
OK, here comes a rant. Why is it that unhappiness is so interesting?

OMFG. I just realised I’m going to be a step-mother!!

I’m not feeling very ‘hammocky’ today.
My baby left for an extended holiday in England and Europe yesterday. Now, when I say “baby”, I don’t mean it literally, she’s 22 and it’s not the first time she’s flown the coup. But it is the first time she’s gone so far, for so long.
Being the first child she has been, now how do I say this nicely, a bit of a bitch at times.
