Well, after 40 odd days of counting down and 2 weeks of holiday I’m in countdown (hours) to takeoff time again.
In rather a cliched fashion I am mystified at the speed at which 2 weeks of doing very little can go so very fast… I finished my holiday with a night and day with Hun and Sil and Jem and Kit. As is customary when Kit and I get to see each other we get together to do something girly. This time was a sleepover and a DVD, we watched the Incredibles and of course Jem loved that too. To close out my time with them and to celebrate Hun’s 30th we went here to see the night glow which is an annual event. Picnics in the dark, fireworks and treat food… every kid’s dream!!!!
I spent last night with Muvva and soaked in a hot bath to ease my aching back after 2 weeks in 5 different beds and now I am writing my last Kiwi blog entry before heading back to the “West Island” and to the office tomorrow morning.
In the time since I have been gone I have had inquiries for quotes for 2 more small contracts… yikes and I have a list of about 10 people who are looking forward to catching up!! Looks like the next couple of weeks are going to be busy ones… Not the least of which is our 1st ever Australian Wibmeet… at the Blackbird Cafenext Sunday 24th 4pm. Wibloggers, Wibreaders and all interested parties invited!
Ooh ooh I’ll be there!

SO wish I could come – as a correspondent only of course :) – but it’s the ANZAC DAY LONG WEEKEND!!!!!!!! No one in my family, unless ABSOLUTELY unavoidably detained, is anywhere except down at the farm! … bonfires, warm kitchen, LOTS of talking :), coffee in town, frosty mornings … mmmm …
Welcome back to Sydney, luv!!!!
Sounds like you had an awesome holiday!
Now…about that offer of a sofa when U2 plays Sydney…

You’re right, holiday time goes *so* much faster than work/real life time. It’s one of those really unfair universal rules. Time going quicker as you get older is another one.
