Back to Zion

I have been in Babylon for too long (i.e. the UK) and now it is time to get back to Zion (i.e. Australia), a land Down Under, where the vegemite flows freely, where they have real mayonnaise, where the roads are wider than footpaths, and I don't have to listen to endless complaints about the Scottish Premier League. Tomorrow I fly to Australia with my eldest daughter to be reunited with my dear wife and youngest daughter. And I can honestly say that after 5 weeks I am convinced that the single parent thing is overrated, especially when you are sick with a virus for a week and still have to cook, clean, do washing, and take child to school. So I'll be off blogging for a few days and look forward to resuming it sometime after my 39 hours of airports and flights. I'm looking forward to pizza with Ben Myers and tennis with my Doktorvater! But most of all, embarcing my Bride and the fruit of my loins.

"The roads are wider than footpaths" -- you clearly haven't tried to pass a road-train on the Stuart Highway!
One of the the things that made me realise how awful driving in the UK was going to be was one Bank Holiday, when driving from the Alice up to Darwin, and having passed about 30 vehicles going the other way in four hours, I turned to a friend and said: "The traffic's very heavy today!"

I'd be a bit worried about being 'embarced' if I was your missus.

Moaning about the Scottish Premier League? That must be Rangers supporters. Or that endangered species known as Aberdeen fans.
