At 7am I put my houseguest of the last five days onto a plane back to Sydney. I really enjoyed her visit; we did a lot of catching up and generally had a good time. But I must admit that I'm enjoying the peace tonight. My house is quiet, but for the whirring of the hard drive. I'm following the cricket via a RSS feed straight to my desktop, there's a cat curled at my feet, and all's right with my world.
