Well, here I am in downtown Yackandandah

It's gorgeous up here, and unlike Melbourne, the seasons are actually behaving themselves. It's still early spring as far as the flowers are concerned. Everything is just budding now and the hills are still very green and lush, we're getting temperatures down to 2 degrees at night but sunny days, around 22 degrees.

Mum is okay, her arm seems to be getting a little better and she's getting around okay. I think she's very greatful for the company, Dad is getting grumpier and vaguer as he gets older. He also seems to be very pissed off at Mum for breaking her arm and is being a bit passive aggressive about the whole thing. I'm glad i'm here to be a bit of a buffer for them both.

I've been painting and cooking and going for walks. The town has changed and grown a lot over the last few years but it's still very sleepy and quiet.

Mum and I are going to get our hair cut in Beechworth this afternoon. The girl/woman who is cutting my hair is one of the "tough" chicks I went to school with, y'know, the ones who smoked ciggies in the loos and threatened to bash people up on a regular basis. I'm a bit scared. :-)

I should get off Dad's computer, he's hovering and making cranky noises.

Hopefully, I'll be back in Melbourne by friday.
