Although the nature and demands of our jobs don't change just because we're on the other side of the World, one thing that is different in January is the weather. This week we've had torrential rain Monday through to Friday but it's been really hot too. Friday the rain cleared up and the blue sky appeared along with Mr. Sunshine and just in time for the Friday drinks trolley to come round! I am definitely enjoying the Friday drinks trolley tradition. A glass of wine at 16:30 on a Friday is a good way to end the long week.
During the week we've been following the cricket naturally. The first 20:20 was pretty exciting; even I have to say that. Australian coverage though is not so impressive. They didn't interview the England winning team and when Australia won the second match they got the celebratory flames and fireworks. When England won there was nothing of the sort. I guess that's the way the sports World turns here in Aus. At least we get to see the game on TV.
And now it's Sunday evening and my usual blogging time. We've had a delicious dinner of home made Thai red fish curry with sticky rice and we're in front of the TV watching a bad film - like a Mighty Ducks movie but about baseball and with Billy Bob Thornton. It's a good Sunday evening!
