Day 48 Fruit Picking -
I think I have solved my sleeping issues - the cats food is on top of the boiler out on the veranda near my room, and he has a habit of eating at 3am. Although I didn't usual take notice of the noise it made, it must have been what was waking me, as since I moved it else where I only sometimes wake up at 3 rather than all the time..
Anyway, I was glad to wake up and realise it was Friday today. It's been another hard week at work, and all of us were petty over it. Despite that we all had a good joke and a laugh, and
It turned out to be a pretty light hearted afternoon, knocking off and getting home about 3pm.
When I got back I had a shower and messed about for a while, then started doing a little more research into my East Coast road trip plans. I think (and hope!) I can get 3rd party insurance pretty cheap for the types of cars I am looking at, which is great. Despite having insurance isn't a legal requirement here, it would be crazy not to have 3rd party!
Mark then got home from work, and I asked him to have a look at my shoulder. I still get jip from where I semi-dislocated it months ago, but since I have also developed pain in the last week or so in the back of the same shoulder, especially at work.
Having manipulated it, and cracked my back and neck in numerous ways in which I was worried by the noises, he thinks I have got repetitive strain injury from picking strawberries...perfect! I am really great full he looked at it for me tough, and hopefully now he has loosen all of the cramping muscles off I won't be in as much discomfort.
I then started making a list of all the different surf spots I would ideally like to visit as I travel down the coast, particularly the most iconic and famous ones. It's going to take hours to get a full list via Internet+little wave finders had book I have, but it's interesting looking into it.
Then before dinner I attempted, and think (?!) I succeeded to cancel my university loans..but I think I will try and ring them in a few days/a week to make sure it has worked.. I'm really not impressed by the website, it's a pig to use. Although dad seemed to mange it ok, so maybe I'm just an idiot?!
After dinner we watched a film called 'Salmon Fishing in the Yemen', which was actually very good and I enjoyed watching.
By the time it finished it was about 9:30pm, and I was absolutely kankered, just like everyone else, so we all went to bed.
