The back paddock

Horseman and 3 dogs in the back paddock

Once again I can only comment on how long it has been since my last post. And how dry it has got since then. That period of rain was very special, I really love it when everything is wet. The colours are always so rich. But I love the colours in this photo too, the summer grasses I call them, and so thick this year because of that rain a few months ago.

All of this year I have been incredibly involved in my hobby of learning Mandarin. To be honest, I was quite tired of learning it, so I really wanted to get that bit over with. I wanted to start using it! So I set myself a goal of being able to speak by the end of March. And that’s why I haven’t made any posts. Up until a week and a half ago, that is all I did all day and all night … and I achieved my goal! (http://carmeljames.cajo.com.au/learningChinese/)

But I still have a ways to go because there is goal 2: to learn to speak well 🙂

However, before I start on that mammoth task, I am going to have a holiday … in Europe. And I will be documenting it here as we go.
