It may seem like we’ve fallen off the face of the earth, but actually, we’ve been spending a bit of time at the bottom of it. The last five or so months have been a roller coaster for our family as we decided we wanted to do some slow travelling around Europe so that we could keep working, but move our walls and explore some of our world. A week after giving up our house, however, my husband was told that his job would be ending and then his contract was ended a month early too, so all our plans came to a disappointing and grinding halt. More so because we were set to visit Australia for my brother’s wedding, but with the loss of income we could no longer do it.
Fortunately my little brother has a big heart and he bought four tickets for our family to cross the oceans. Aren’t I a lucky big sister ?
So, for the last 6 weeks we’ve been bumming around Perth, trying to spend as little as possible – no small feat in December, with Christmas and feeling a little bit holiday-ish.
Like many people around Christmas time, we’ve spent a lot of time running around:

We’ve been hiding in the shadows:
Watching movies late into the evening:
Yep, this has been a rather more austere Christmas than we had imagined:
And we’re really looking forward to returning to the UK and leaving scenes like this behind us*
P.S. In case you weren’t sure, I’m trying reverse psychology on myself, psyching myself up to leaving Perth!
