Just a few days off before starting a week of nights. Trying to undo the shock of venturing outdoors in Sydney by avoiding direct sunlight and keeping all interior lights as dim as possible.

Did have a brief wander down to Surfers Paradise to find the place completely deserted. Apparently tourist season finishes around mid-March, despite there being no change whatsoever to atmospheric and/or water conditions. Expecting to see a lot of real hungry sharks any time now.

Off to get a bigger boat.

Back from a great couple of days in sunny Sydney, where we didn't climb the bridge, go to the opera, check out the surf at Bondi or get caught up in any anti-war demos. We did go to the Zoo, and (later) met up with Doug Isles, which more than made up for things.

There was no opera on at the opera house on Monday (designated Opera Day), and that's the only reason we're not going to the opera.

I'm in Sydney, and even 12000 miles from Bristol it's possible to get on the internet. I've got some lovely pictures of us both dressed as penguins, but they'll have to wait until I can hook the camera up to the laptop.

I tried to ensure Natalie had a stinking hangover to welcome her into her 27th year, but she seemed to make it to work OK this morning.

Off to Sydney this weekend...

Avid readers and fans from around the globe will be delighted to know that I haven't been doing anything interesting for the last 2 weeks, I've simply been planning a new and radical overhaul to the website and have been too excited to post stuff. Anyway, we can't go anywhere because Natalie's passport has disappeared down the back of the sofa. Or somewhere.
