In between setting the studio up I’ve been on the phone to Telstra all day on and off. Today is the day weve been promised that the internet gets connected. Not even nbn just boring old adsl and it’s been weeks and weeks of waiting to get to this place. An unbelievably frustrating experience. However outside the window of our new office is a gnarly old banksia tree and over the weeks whilst on hold on I’ve watched the flowers slowly grow and open and blossom and a variety of different birds come to feed on the flower heads at each stage. It’s been lovely to watch. An enforced mindfulness of staring out the window whilst Telstra messes us around for another day. 6 weeks and still waiting. Madness.

Panda and Harry off for a walk. It’s nice and cool and a bit damp today in the mountains. No sounds of firefighting helecopters flying overhead with water buckets today – Just the gentle noise of crickets and frogs and small birds. Lovely.
