This will be the last post I make from Perth. There is little left in the flat but a whole lot of packing cartons, some semi-disassembled furniture, and a computer.

It has been a roller-coaster of a three years. There have been some terrible lows and some amazing highs. I have met some wonderful people, and I would like to say thank you to them for being such great friends. I’d especially like to single out AH and AM – you know who you are!

The removalists arrive at 7.30 am tomorrow and then we are in the car on Thursday morning for the next big adventure.

See you there!

Goodbye, it’s time I sought a foreign clime,
Where I may find there are hearts more kind than I leave behind.
And so I go to fight the savage foe,
Although I know I’ll be sometimes missed by the girls I’ve kissed.

In some Abyssinian French dominion I shall do my bit,
And fall for the flag if I must.
Where the desert sand is nice and handy, I’ll be full of grit,
You won’t see my heels for the dust.

Goodbye. Goodbye. I wish you all a last “Goodbye”.
Goodbye. Goodbye. I wish you all a last “Goodbye”
