In Tasmania we are now enjoying daylight savings time. Well most of the time anyway - I have to admit I'm not enjoying the morning part of it, but the light evenings are great. The other advantage of daylight savings is that I don't have to listen to the half an hour news & current affairs program "Hack" on the youf radio network "JJJ" as we drive to the creche after work - I find Hack really annoying and I know there are other radio stations I could listen to but I find them even MORE annoying than Hack what with their advertisements and the like.
In general news, Jon was in Adelaide last weekend living it up at his school years 20th-reunion thingy - he came back pretty tired and husky voiced so I'm pretty sure he had a great time. Somehow Jon always manages to go away when I either have a zillion cake deliveries, or the children are sick and last weekend he hit the jackpot as both these events occured - we all survived it though mainly due to our Hobart luxuries of having excellent support people available and the fact that deliveries nowadays never really take that long as there's next to no traffic and not very far to drive.The cake pictured is what I delivered to a restaurant on blackmans bay beach. As you can see the beach was packed out.
In sporting news I've been inspired by both the recent world cup and being awarded my soccer teams best and fairest trophy to play in a 7 a side soccer for a short season over summer. I'm thinking that 20 minutes halves will both suit my current fitness level and also have me skipping dinner/bath/bed time routines at home for a few weeks. yay. Luckily I didn't actually throw my soccer boots in the bin at the end of the winter season as I had planned to although I probably would have if the house was tidier and I had found them sooner. Along the same lines I'm hoping my orienteering compass turns up before this weekends sprint championships but given our childrens ability to relocate useful objects I'm not holding out much hope. Last night Zali and Jett relocated all of the towels in the towel cupboard to the full bath.
