Posted:Well, here we go.

After 2 years of umming and ahhing and changing my mind constantly, the day has almost arrived (tomorrow) when I leave Southampton, my home of 14 years, and travel back to my birthplace Australia.

(Just got to get a couple of months in Africa out of the way first. I'm having absolutely no side effects on larium which has left me marginally disappointed as I was looking forward to the hallucinations.)

I've made some good friends, Spanner, Strugz and Frodo in particular, and I'm going to miss you loads, so you all have to come and stay with me. Please.

And it's on with the new. Looking forward to meeting some new peeps, ones who know what a hoon is, and don't look at me strange when I end a sentence in "but..."

I love you all.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

And your locaton says Originally Surfers Paradise.. wow, thats a gorgeous place.
It will be nice to be back here again... where people speak normally and all that jazz... but it will sad for you to leave.
