Only one more sleep for me. I am on a 6.00 am flight tomorrow and hitting the town on Thursday. As for LDV he has a loooong way to come so he has probably left as well.

I have had to cancel my telephone call from you as I remembered that I will be spending the whole of Saturday sitting near the door of my local supermarket collecting money for charity. So either I won't be in (in which case my answerphone will be on) or else I will be getting the last bit of sleep before my twelve hour shift.

Have a great time.

I get on a plane in 270 minutes... and then I'll be on it for a heckuva long time.
See y'all soon.

Just in case, I have just finished cutting every telephone pole down within a three-block radius of my home.

Having initially signed up for 'the call' I then remembered that I will be spending all day Saturday freezing just inside the open/shut/open/shut/open door of our local supermarket sitting at a table with a couple of yellow buckets hoping that people will be generous and put some money in them.

Ah, I just thought, having cancelled the call we are behind, not in front of them so it would be Friday morning they phone, not Saturday. Duh!

As you were folks, if you want to phone I ought to be about. Oz has my number.

We would have called, anyway, Sue. You would just have had a long rambling message on your answering machine.

Sorry I have not been here for the last few days- I have been visiting family, but am now back and hanging out for tomorrow night!

I still have about 15 overseas people's numbers in my phone (including Nightmare's! ). If anyone wants to opt out of being woken up, please let me know.

One more sleep!!

I have a cap on my mobile- $200 worth of calls for $30 per month. I have never even come close to reaching that amount. I am more worried about the battery running dry. Has anyone got a teeny, weeny set of jumper leads, just in case?

Not to mention they hide themselves amongst your fingerbun. And when said fingerbun already has dried up sultanas in it...

blergh. Don't eat fingerbuns in the bush.

And it is raining. Hopefully it will clear up before this afternoon, or Sydney will be mistaken for Melbourne!

It's raining all right and nowhere near the 38C I went to sleep in (for my Last Sleep! - instead it's 12C!
Well it is good party weather.

Looks like back to boots and jeans and jacket!

Oh dear, didn't they explain the dress code to you - how shall we say, it is 'formal'.

Boots, jeans, and jacket is formal down there!

I hope you all have a wonderful time, have a drink on the bunny - but I don't mean me!
