we had a little (he's actually quite big) visitor at our house yesterday! this is a native australian animal called the echidna. my mum found this poor little thing with it's head tucked in a corner of the wall and window sill. it'd been raining really heavily lately so he was probably really scared and just drying off. he didn't stay too long, after dinner when we checked on him, he'd already wandered off home.
in other news: flights to paris booked, accommodation (in paris) booked, passport has arrived. only a few things left to do and two months until i depart, this is getting really exciting!
