As an avid tea drinker,I am super curious about this. Please give me an update when you try for yourself! ^-^
As insanipi mentioned, please keep us updated! Love a good chamomile tea, where did you get the seedlings from?

Thanks all! :D I'm boring as hell and just got them from Bunnings haha -- their range is great. I started with continental parsley, mint, basil, oregano, chamomile, rosemary, and thyme from their amazing garden section. I've also got a bunch of flowers, tomatoes, and passionfruit, although the passionfruit was here when I started leasing the house.

I'll wait for more flowering and then make some tea and post an update!

I tried finding some sideritis (the best flavour of tea) today but unfortunately I couldn't find any :(

I went for a run today up at falls creek and (at Fitzgerald's hut) bumped into a heard of brumbies, although no physical bumping occurred. They were initially rolling around and doing horsey things which were quite amusing to watch, but as I proceeded onwards (with hesitance) they became less than happy with my existence and ran away. I did get a few pretty poor photos of them after they had run away and stopped doing their horsey things.  I don't know if anyone else has seen brumbies before, but this was a first for me.

Was intending to get a lot of study done. Instead, I wasted one hour figuring out how to study english (and failed) and then went back to reading manga (Bakugan- the one about two kids trying to become manga artists). I then was guilt-tripped about not studying and then wasted time looking at ways on how to study  :D :D :D. Nah seriously, the manga was the highlight of the day. Never have I been so engaged with a manga before. So interesting. Give it a read.

Just walked outside in the dark and right into a spider web. The best part: the sizeable spider was still making it and I practically gave it a little kiss before jumping back. whoever says objects with mass can't reach the speed of light is wrong, becuase I am fairly certain I was moving well faster than it.
I am no spider expert so I can't give you a name, however I can give you this fairly accurate drawing of it (If I say so myself)

If anyone is a spider expert and can tell me what this is, please do.  :)

Now that you mention it, It may have been a bat and I do think I walked out the door upside down. It all makes sense.
Here is the correct photo:


AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

NIGHT. MADE.
I am glad my suffering brings joy to you. I would say the same goes the other way round, but I am a better person than that ;)

Hahahaha this is fantastic. Have you ever contemplated a career as a police sketch artist?

If it was outside and was sizeable, it might have been an orb spider. They like to make pretty webs and do it nightly as far as I know.
