Getting Down Under Australia

Hi Guys

It’s probably been the longest time I’ve spent without updating the blog and I feel ashamed :(

I managed to get a promotion at work which has resulted in some pretty significant travel and a little less time to update the blog. Still, things seem to be calming down a little now so I hope to get back into the swing of things.

During the last three weeks I’ve flown to some of Australias major cities visiting some of our head office sites in each of the major states.

This has included trips to Brisbane, Sydney Adelaide and Melbourne (pronounced Mel-bun and not Mel-born as I was repeatedly corrected by my Aussie colleagues) before flying back to Perth just over a week ago.

I gotta say, they were literally flying visits and I’ve been left feeling pretty knackard.

Typical itineray meant arriving in the city at about dinner time, quick dinner/drink followed by meetings the following morning and then back to the airport.

I don’t think it will be the last time I visit these places so I hope to get to know each of them a little better.

I already have another trip planned for Sydney early July although I’ve already spent a bit of time in Sydney so have got to know the place pretty well already.

Its nearly officially winter now and the temperatures have been dropping quite low in the early mornings (I even saw my breath for the first time while waiting for the bus the other day). :D

It transpires that the house we are renting has no insulation so we feel the cold pretty quick. It has still be warming up quite nicely during the day though with the average daily temp still hitting the early 20’s so we are still far from the freezing temperatures we’d be experiencing during the equivalent of late November back home.

Baby number two is still growing. The missus has a very large bump now and with three months to go I have no idea how the heck she can grow any bigger without exploding! It is a perfect bump though (all out front). Kinda on the lines of a large football (the round ‘soccer type’) shoved up ther front of your t-shirt. Still damn big though.

More news to follow :)

Cheers all
