MusicMonday: Possession by Elvis Costello

This week's #MusicMonday is one for all those who knew me as Bird in the Bush, my first blog about Shepherd's Bush, a small, smelly, brilliantly bad and good suburb of London.

Watch this video of an Elvis Costello song which was found and recommended to me for this feature by my Dad. Thank you Pappa Bird, not only was it a great video to watch and remind me of a place I loved living in (albeit a slightly older version in the video with much less traffic than now infiltrates the Bush) it's also a very good song.

Tonight I wave goodbye to Australia with a heavy hand and heart as it's been a wonderfully special leg of our trip. I feel like I've found missing pieces in the puzzle that is NewMan and I have treasured meeting his Mum, family and friends. I can't wait to come back.

Here are some of the last of my Instagrams from Melbourne. Next week I will hopefully be bringing you my Instagrams from our first week on the road in New Zealand! (You can follow my journey in New Zealand and beyond on Twitter and Instagram - I'm bushbirdie.)
