Well, it's my third day back at work in Toowoomba after living in Melbourne for 6 months. I work at USQ (the uni in Toowoomba) about 2 hours west (inland) of Brisbane, Queensland. My role is to provide support for the Mac computers across campus. It's a good job.
Last Tuesday (10 July) I left Melbourne about 8am and headed for home in Queensland, planning to get near the VIC-NSW border that day. It was foggy and quite cold up to near Seymore, but then the weather was just beautiful! Green rolling hills, clear blue skies. I made my way to Mansfield, got some info about the snow, and found myself on Mt Sterling (near Mt Buller) in the snow have a nice time. Did some tobogganning, relaxed in the tranquil surrounds of King's Saddle, relaxed on the snow in the sun and built a snowman. Made a quick trip to Mt Buller around sunset time, did two quick slides on the toboggan and spent the night at Camp Howqua, a restful campground near a small river with cabins and gum trees, 30 mines from Mansfield, Victoria.

Up the next day (11 July) and zoomed along the Hume Freeway to Newcastle (1.5hrs north Sydney) to stay at Grandma and Pa's. Excellent 110km/h concrete freeway almost all the way. Caught up with relatives on Thursday... Jamie and Auntie Ash, Grandma Warden, Kerri & Shaun and Livinia, and Grandma Reid and Pa.
