2020. What a bloody year!

As we all know, 2020 has been a bit of a mixed bag. My intentions to keep this blog going and tell you all about my new job were sadly interrupted by a whole bunch of craziness – moving office, the covid debacle, fieldwork, extreme exhaustion, moving house again – it’s been a busy one!

If I had to summarise my job as an environmental consultant in one word it would be this – BUSY.  As is probably evident from my complete silence since moving to Wagga last September!

For those of you who missed it (or have forgotten who I am!), after a string of overseas expeditions I moved to Wagga Wagga in New South Wales last year for a new job as an environmental consultant. 

I’ve been prompted to revive my blog because I have some very exciting news to share with you all soon (I know, how mysterious).

For now though, here’s a quick snapshot of my year in photos.
