27 & What a load of old Wallabies…
Seb: If only it was the 27th of April! Or Week 27 of the project! Alas. Either way, there are baby lambs ALL over the fields at the moment and they’re incredibly cute. It’s amazing, the contrast between the winter-slumbering greys and blacks and whites of Norway, and the vibrant, lively greens of England. I am beginning to see why people love England so much, despite how mediocre and temperate it often feels.
I also missed the daffodils this year — something I’ve never done before. I left before they flowered… and returned just as they were dying. Who knew that daffodils only lasted a few weeks.
Anyway, the big news this week is that we’re LATE. Abi’s stuck in Australia, with limited computer access, because of those damn Icelandic volcanoes. I almost flew up there actually, to take photos… but obviously flights were cancelled… hah.

Abi: Well as most of you will have guessed by now I am stuck in Australia and am having a bit of trouble with the time difference so apologize for the lateness of this upload. As most of you will gather from the news the Icelandic volcano has impacted massively upon my return travel plans. I have learnt that I potentially will not be able to fly for another two weeks as the flights are so backlogged.
Traumas aside here is a very pretty picture of a Wallaby and NOT a Kangaroo (those are much bigger). I took this at very close range whilst trapped in a shed during a rainstorm.. but we won’t go into that.
Looks like you will be getting two more Australian based uploads as I will have photography to fill my days.
