I’ll be taking 4 weeks holiday from tomorrow, so the blog may be a bit quieter than usual. But hopefully I’ll be back on deck in January, and in the meantime you may get some posts from other writers.
In other news, it’s cricket season, and today is the second day of the Ashes (for non-cricketing readers, the Ashes is a Test cricket series – the name comes from a satirical obituary written on the victory of Australia over England in 1882. The obituary stated that this marked the death of English cricket, and the body would be cremated and sent to Australia).
So all of Adelaide is either at the cricket or watching or listening to it. Since our group lives on the top of the tallest and ugliest building in the University, we can see Adelaide oval from our windows, although it’s hugely disappointing that we can’t see much of the action. My consolation is that the birds are out: I saw a couple of rosellas in a bottlebrush on the way in to work, the rainbow lorikeets are flitting about in large numbers, and the kookaburras that live around the campus are laughing from the trees and the rooftops.
So enjoy yourselves and check out some of our past posts, and hopefully you’ll hear from me again in January.
