Day 26 fruit picking -
It was just the normal work routine again today - 7am start etc. It's been very cold on the mornings all week, but as soon as the sun comes up it warns quickly. It's very strange though, the air temp can be 10 degrees and you can be in the sun in just a t-shirt..
As with often happens with Wednesday-Thursday-Friday the mornings go quickly, but the afternoons particularly between 2-3pm go very slowly!
I got home really hopeful to go for a surf, but the wind was absolutely destroying it. It had been good first thing, when I was working, and by the time I could go it was crap, very annoying.
Instead I just chilled out in the garden, laying in the sun and flicking around on the Internet.
I also did a little basic research on hireable camper vans - for a van+insurance+full breakdown cover etc, for 2 months is about $4200. Which as I would hope to split with 1 other person is about $260 ish a week. At first this seems expensive with petrol and food to add to that, but then compare to 7 days in a hostel being about $200 a week alone, that is not bad really.. I will also have to look into buying an estate car and working out prices that way..
Later as usual we just watched the Olympics on TV, had dinner and chilled out.
I have noticed, and been told by Fenella, I have been more myself again this week. I seem to have more energy back and be happier again. I don't know if that's because I have had days doing nothing but chilling out after work or what, but it's good anyway..
