That month off there was unplanned and to some degree involuntary. Happy 2009! etc. I've got no intention of letting my blog die just yet. It may take me a little while to remember how to write things for it, though.
Probably the most important thing that happened while I was away that needs to be recorded for posterity is that one of the chickens laid an egg that was bigger than Basil's whole head. It's the one on the right in this picture.
Another important thing that happened is that Dorian and I decided to get married. Actually technically this happened before I went blogAWOL - up in Queensland in November, he popped the question and of course I accepted. It was really rather romantic. Here's my ring:
We're going to marry in April, in our own backyard. It's not huge so we can't fit in a really large number of people (although just this afternoon our neighbour suggested taking down the fence between our properties for the day, lol) but I'm definitely inviting Brendan Nelson.
