Last month, we packed up some tiny bags (no checked baggage allowance) and jumped on a plane to Tasmania for Thali's birthday!
It was just a quick trip for a few days. It was the first time I saw snow! And then it snowed on me in tiny flurries! And I touched snow! I was really excited.
Thali took us on some lovely walks, but it was incredibly cold out and Lauren and I are babies so we missed some interesting things. I did get up early with Thali one morning to go platypus spotting though! I only got to see a splash, but I'm told they were there.
I have a few more photos, but I wasn't sure that I should post them. Thali may have some of them up soon though, so keep an eye out.

A week or so after that, we'd invited Cortnee and Jess up to have tea with us. We were very laid back about it. There were a lot of scones that didn't make it into the pictures because they were being kept warm! We had plain scones and pumpkin scones- the leftover pumpkin ones went so well with the potato and leek soup we made the next night!
In my spare time too, I've been working on a little something for AVCon this month! I have a bit more to do on this, and then a couple of other things to prepare for my parade outfit. I'm really excited to see it all coming together!
Also I apologise to anyone who has found me to be commenting madly on their blogs- we finally have internet! My blog reader had over 200 posts unread and well, I lost track a little..
I hope I can return to posting more regularly!
