I fly a little bit - the same planes, the same flight numbers every two weeks. For the last 3-4 months my flights with Qantas have seen me in sit 72A or 72K - okay sometimes as far up as 69 but... always at the back of the 747 and always sitting in a two sitter.

Last week and today have seen them putting me in a window sit (A or K) in 23 or 24 - my preference is clearly outlines as the back of the plane.

I like a little bit of consistency in my life - tonight in case you are wondering I have moved to 64A and 64B is supposed to be blocked...

Fingers Crossed

Stuff is happening with new employment....

down to the final 7 for a job... :)

Tassie - done and dusted

well maybe only Hobart -but that's not let that get in the way of the story!

Peter, Isabel and myself spend three nights in sunny (yes sunny) Hobart last week.

I can officially say that I have been to the Cascade Brewery and Cadbury Factory (no oompa loomba's in sight :()

we went to Rundall Falls and did the markets, walked the botaical gardens (we had some time to kill between planes - who in there right mind books a plane for 6am on a sunday to fly from the holiday spot?)

Then monday was lovely had a couple of hours of hanging out with Aidan, Stace and Andrew.

Australia is an interesting country depending on where you are depends on the flovour milk you can get and who makes it!!

SA - famous for Farmers Union Iced Coffee (even McDonalds sells it)!
WA - Has Browne milk - and it comes in Spearmint (my favourite) as well Banana, Strawberry, Chocolate and Iced Coffee (a couple of versions)
VIC - is even more complex - certain areas have certain companies in the South West we have Sungold Milk - and they have honeycomb!

So what flavours should milk come in...

The spearmint one is interesting - the colour of milk - coming from a dairy background it looks like something we would thrown away.
I am not staying with Newcrest - the fat lady has sang - althrough no one has been that forward.
The timing just isn't suiting the company and me!
