Post (nearly) every day month, eh?

OK, I missed the first few days, but I was sick and therefore have an excuse! Still sick actually, but not so badly. But i know I need to get back into the habit of writing and this is as good a way as any!

I am still busy, but it's good busy. Working from home, I'm able to work more at my own pace and in line with the way my natural cycles of attention go. This largely involves working from about 7:30am till about 11 am, having a big break in the middle of the day, and then doing a few more hours from about 2:30 till Rohan gets home. It seems to be the way my brain is set up to operate. Oooh, and I have a laptop now! It's slim and light. It makes it much easier for me to work throughout the day as I can move between locations, curl up on the couch, stretch out on the bed, etc. Am still getting used to Windows 8 and setting it all up to operate as I want it to, though.

The Australian federal election is on this Saturday and I am dreading the fact that we'll probably have a change of government. Mind you, IMHO both major parties are representatives of Teh Evil. Quite disgusted with the way the Labor Party has betrayed its roots.

And finally and most wonderfully, it's Spring! Spring has sprung! I had the house all open today and let the warm air in, and it was glorious.

I miss looking forward to new Merlin :(

It does not matter who wins on Saturday ... they will be expected to deliver immediately and we know that is not possible, but still we expect it.

At least TV will be better come next week.

You are not alone in missing Merlin.

I think the two major parties have shot themselves in the foot there - their advertising is giving the impression that there are Huge Problems that need Fixing, when in reality we're doing much better than most of the Western world (let alone the third world) and what we really need is a more cohesive society with a more even distribution of our many advantages, not one which is so divisive and combative.

At least, as you say, we can look forward to less political garbage once Saturday is over!

Politicians do not appreciate what we have ... that needs to change well and truly.

Divisive and combative ... that will remain unfortunately as not all Australians believe in LIVE and LET LIVE. There are those who want us to become them. A true blue Aussie is free and does not dictate to others.

Always looking forward to hearing your updates as you start your new employment. :-) The laptop sounds lovely and you have the motivation to work by yourself and do the hours at times that suit you. Are you taking walks etc as well to get out of the house?

There are queues of people outside Australia House in London opposite my office and I was wondering if that was something to do with your election, but maybe not....

Yes, I am getting plenty of time outside the house! I actually go out to meetings in the city probably three days a week, most weeks. It's a 20-minute walk one way to the station, and I walk there and back, so I think I'm getting more exercise than I did before.

The people you saw queuing almost certainly were voting - there's been a polling booth at Australia House since August 26 for the ten zillion Aussies living in London :)
