A day off work today to celebrate Australia Day. Some workmates have organised a barbecue for this afternoon. I am about to prepare my contributions, which I shall probably blog on my food blog later, if they turn out edible. It is now 0615 and the thermometer on the wall outside my back door says it is 19 degrees already. I think it will be another scorcher.
A young colleague from the Shire is off to Japan for a fortnight, and happens to be returning at about the time I need to drop my bike off at Sue & Steve’s place. At first I was going to get a lift back with her and her parents, but then she kindly offered to drop my car off in Forrestfield for me. She will set off this morning. Now I can ride up any time and drive back. One problem solved without having to take a 6 hour bus trip. Still have to figure out how to get back to Perth on March 10. Probably I shall take the car and figure out how to get it home after the trip.
My Manfrotto camera clamp arrived yesterday, and is going to be very useful indeed. Definitely obviates the need to carry a tripod around assuming I can find something the clamp it to. If all else fails the bike is there.
