Day 49 Fruit Picking -
Another day, another dollar! Back to work again as its Monday, which didn't seem like too much of a hardship as the weekend seemed to go slowly which is always nice.
Really nothing eventful happened at work. It was a lovely day though, about 24 degrees, so not too hot, and a breeze most of the day. Everywhere is looking very dry though. It's now about 2 months since we have had ANY rain..unbelievable! It must be the longest period of time in my life I have experienced no rain..
As is now normal, we worked until 3:30pm, but the day seemed to just fly by. It may sound stupid having done so much fishing here, but one of the things I miss most about home life (aside from the obvious family and friends) is carp fishing. When my mind wanders at work I often end up thinking about it...having said that, I rarely think about home unless I'm messaging Mum or writing my blog..
When I got home from work I did the usual faff about and have a shower. I then went up the road with Fenella to introduce myself to their car mechanic. He too is a Brit, and a really nice bloke. He is more than happy to keep an eye out for cars for me, and will check over anything I am looking at before I buy it. I'm glad that's done, now over the next few weeks/month I can start to properly look for cars. The only issue is I don't know when I will finish working at the strawberry farm (and so how much I can spend on a car). Ideally I could do with another month, but I'm not sure that will happen. We will see..
In the evening we had dinner and watched a bit of TV as usual. Then I went on the PC and continued making a list of surf spots to hit on my road trip. I also had a short chat with Danny, to do with our European road trip idea. That could be a little more difficult than first expected, especially due to our age.
