Trying to finish up the minimum of 15 minutes usage time at the Bundaberg internet cafe at the moment.

Have been spending the last five days or so at Nat's place about 20 minutes out of Bundaberg. 12 people squashed into a three bedroom house. There's plenty of land around, but not quite that many house space.

I've been relegated to sleeping on a queen size bed with Nat in their music room while Daniel's sleeping kind of opposite me in the hallway. It's been interesting sleeping in an area with no doors. Trying to change particularly so.

Haven't done much for a while. Spend most of the days at home sitting, eating, and not sleeping. Sleeping in rooms next to the kitchen with a family full of early birds make it very difficult to sleep past 8am every morning.

Did have a massive water fight around the house on the first day of arrival, played some beach cricket, swam in the nearby lake, as well as played some house cricket that involved a not so nice sprain on the ankle and a ball in the face.

In town now while the rest go to a waterslide place...and the 15 minutes should be up by now.

Going to see turtles this evening...

Update: Our order got stuffed up and after 20 minutes waiting, they're only just starting to make it. They offered *one* free drink as compensation. One. I'm still hungry....

Sitting at The Winsome Hotel in Lismore at the moment, waiting for dinner to arrive for the last 20 minutes.

Took off yesterday evening and stayed the night at Port Macquarie at a friend of a friend's.

Will be spending tonight at a friend's sister's place. She has an art exhibition at the top floor of the hotel, which is how I ended up here.

Yes, I've been absolutely and positively slack with my updates since my return from Singapore.

Unfortunately, things may not change for a while.

I leave tomorrow up to Bundaberg to spend Christmas with my darling friend and partner in crime while in London, Nat, as well as the rest of Daniel's family.

Returning after the new year, but will have to leave pretty soon for the Pathfinder camporee and will not be back till mid January.

So if I don't update till then, you know why.

Thanks folks for being such faithful readers and have a very merry Christmas!

Robbie! Robbie! Robbie!

What a perfect end to a perfect weekend.

Robbie Williams is a definite true blue entertainer.

Saw the Robbie Williams concert last night and boy was it an amazing experience. We got free standing tickets and ended up only a few metres away from the stage and The Man.

There were lots of dancing (well, more of bobbing up and down from our part) and singing along and all I can say is that it was a magnificently entertaining experience, particularly his grand entrance, complete with pyrotechniques, fireworks and all.

He engaged the crowd, was his usual cheeky self, sang his numerous hits and wowed the crowd away. The atmosphere was simply amazing.

It took us about an hour to get out of the carpark after the concert and we didn't get home till past midnight. I'm just a little sleepy right now, but what a brilliant night. What a brilliant concert.

I'm still alive.

My recent disappearance is a result of a surprise return to Singapore (surprise for the folks in Singapore, not for me) for a week thanks to frequent flyer points.

Returning with Daniel meant having to do the whole tourist thing which saw us spending all day out, returning home exhausted and ready for bed. Naturally with the lack of sleep and the wet monsoon season, Daniel fell sick before the end of the week.

Got back last Thursday, but am currently staying at Manly. What with having to commute, flying to Melbourne for a day for work, going on all-day conferences, trying to sort out more than 200 emails and simply attempting to get back into the groove of things, updates on this site may be few and coming for a while.

But I will be back!
