One of the few exciting things that has happened in Perth in recent months was a visit from QANTAS' brand new A380 aircraft. Plane nuts flocked to the airport to witness the arrival of the world's largest aircraft.

I was lucky enough to be at work that day, so got to see the plane fly overhead and later taxi past my office! It is a very quiet aircraft which is surprising for its size, but shows how much technology has improved (the loudest aircraft here are the small older ones like the 717s)


Ok, so I have forgotten about/been avoiding my blog for a while. Sorry to those dedicated followers!

My plan had been to do some exploring of Perth and the surrounds and get excited and write stuff. I did a little bit of exploring, got fed up and wasn't inspired. I think getting lost in Kings Park killed my exploring side (as did petrol prices)!

I also don't think I read any books following the previous post!

What has been taking up my time is sleeping, patchwork and art. I have been taking oil painting classes for just over 3 months and watercolour painting for 1 month. Don't have a whole lot to show for it (especially as my camera won't take good pics of it), but more pics to come!
