Bound For Botany Bay...


So sure enough Overyourhead is off on holiday this weekend. What? Yet again? I hear you cry! This time I'm off to Sydney, Australia to stay with my two super-sexy friends Dave and Craig for three weeks. I've got few plans (scary!) and going to take it all in my stride (who's kidnapped the old Jonce and replaced him with this laid-back replicant?). I've got books to read, beer to quaff and warm weather to bask in.

I'm traveling by myself this time; partly to rebuild some of confidence that was given a good kicking this time last year as we (long time since I used *that* word!) were in the last throes of our LTR, partly because I have no-one to travel with, and partly just to please myself. Watch word this trip: self-affirment.

And it's no bad thing to put a bit of distance between myself and London for a while. It helps to get all sorts of things into perspective when you're away.

So I'll be back in time for Easter. The anniversary of our break-up would have passed. And I'll hopefully be a happier Easter bunny for it. Advance Australia Fair.

  6. All the best for your trip Jonathan - you deserve a wonderful break away! I'm sure some of those Sydney demons will be well and truly exorcised. Will be over your way in August (10-20 at this stage) so will have a beer or two and catch up then!
