Day 31 Fruit Picking -
I just had work again as usual today, and again it seemed to go quickly. I wouldn't say I particularly enjoy it, but I really dont mind it as a job, especially now in the beautiful weather. Even when I get up at 6am when it's cold I don't dread the thought of it, like I have with other jobs..
It did get 'very' hot today though, must have been one of the warmest yet. We finished picking the farm for the first time this week just before lunch. After lunch we started again, but within half an hour it became clear we may as well wait till tomorrow morning for the fruit to ripen off more, and we all went home at 1pm.
When I got home I put my boardies on and just led in the sun and had a couple of beers. It was so nice and warm and I was pretty tired, I think I actually napped for a while too.
When the sun started to go down it cooled down quite quickly, so I came in and had a shower etc.
Before dinner I then sorted out my tax issues and printed out my return to post off, then watched some Olympics and helped Fenella make dinner.
After dinner we were sat watching TV, and Fenella was taking the piss out of
my hair and calling me 'Crusty the clown'. Then she got her straighteners and straightened my hair...2nd time in Australia that has happened now. My hair is getting pretty flipping long now, so still sticking to the dreadlock plans!
