The day before

2 exhausted little moles arrived in Melbourne yesterday. We are now in the intensive care unit at Beth and Susan’s, the Bella’s of the Bellarine Peninsula! Intensive laughing, intensive eating drinking, packing unpacking, resting un resting. Zzzzzzzz…waking in time for  our last Australian sunset for some time.

Guess what! We’ve left, what bliss and after a midnight scotch we are off to do the Singapore sling thing.

About The Moles

Although moles hold no particular attraction for us, when we moved to Tasmania in 2003, we lived in Mole Creek. With hopes of fitting in sooner rather than later, we embraced the name in our e-mail account. Now that we are heading off on our globe-trot we thought we'd maintain solidarity with moles and even give them an outing, hence the curious id.... -And since Annie's late Mum, Gwen, was pleased to call herself Molesmama, she's coming too. Not lost on us is the marvellous ambiguity inherent in the word and the notion that very little is known about these small, sleepy, dark-dwelling creatures....

    What a team ! Reading your blog is fun, I was all smiles. Loved the picture with the suitcases with Gwen ready to tag along. I was absolutely honoured to be with you for Gwen’s ‘earthing ceremony’. I still feel her mischief around me. Have fun ( and no need to reply !!!)
