Moving on from Victoria, I'd had the wonderful offer to house and animal sit for a month in Mundaring, near Perth.

The house was s stunning property hidden away in the woods:

However, looking after a place like this takes some work, and there is ALWAYS a job that needs doing! It was nice to be able to get through Yvonne's 'to-do' list while she was away, including...
polishing a jaguar..

But at the end of the week, it's nice to look forward to the outdoor cinema, under the stars

The Perth Hills offer a glorious mix of natural bush, wild flowers, waterfalls, creeks, towering trees, sensational views and vineyards.
Mundaring is in the heart of the The Hills, with six of the State's top Trails including the Bibbulmun Track and Munda Biddi Trail, Mundaring is perfect for walking and cycling.
It was great to be able to walk from the house into endless bush. They're some very lucky dogs!

Whilst in Mundaring, I celebrated my 33rd birthday, and created some great memories of birthday cauliflower cheese (the result of living with a vegetarian!)
