      1. It’ll probably be a year! It works out at about $150 per week each. And that’s for two separate bedrooms, a rarity I think. Mostly two bedrooms = a lounge that opens into a bed.


      2. You can get a visa for a year then? That’s good. You must be very excited. You seem to have been on the move all year. You obviously have caught wanderlust. Aren’t the twins visiting you for Christmas? I have a vague idea that you mentioned them coming over to Australia at the end of the year.


      3. A visa for a year, yes, but it needs an invitation from my daughter’s local governance. She’s getting it. At the moment I’m in bed and never want to stir. Is that wanderlust??? And yes, the twins will be here for a month January / February.


    1. The trees are not so luxuriant now Jo. Rain and wind having the usual effect. I hope that I shall be able to get outside for at least one more walk to capture some leaves before they are all on the ground and soggy 😦


    1. Yes, I saw on the world weather forecast that Australia has had some BIG storms both on the east and west coast. We have been forecast a very cold winter, but so far it is very mild. Who knows what to expect these days!


  1. I’ll trade seasonal quotations with you. In the 1944 play Le malentendu (The misunderstanding, Albert Camus has this interchange between two characters: “What is autumn?” — “A second season, when leaves are like flowers.”

    1. What a coincidence that you have this on a T-shirt. The “quotation” appears in many places on the Internet but in altered forms: one sentence instead of the original two, and without the word “like”. Versions that I’ve found online are:

      “Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.”
      “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
      “Fall is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.”
      “Fall is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”

      Here’s the original French version of the interchange between two characters in the play:

      “Qu’est-ce que l’automne?” — “Un deuxième printemps, où toutes les feuilles sont comme des fleurs.”

  2. Such a wonderful collection. Autumn at it’s best. So many golden beauties – I especially like the one in the top right corner 😉
    Thank you so much for sharing them!!! xxx
