Sadly, that even includes holidays, the endless kind of ones that seem like forever when they start but seem to evaporate really quickly towards the end.
Since I last posted I have been to Melbourne with the family for a week. It was great to catch up with so many people, especially to be able to take Mrs Scoop and the two Teaspoons (small Scoops) to see everybody. Since returning home I have done a fair bit of study reading (business accounting and finance – scary as hell!) and done a fair bit of relaxing. I’ve been sleeping past 8am as often as not, and those who know me well would realise that this is a big thing for me. Yesterday I took Teaspoon 2 to the Queensland Museum. It was great because I just followed him once we were inside instead of trying to show him particular things. Surprisingly, we did pretty much get to see everything, although he would not go anywhere near the far wall of the bugs and wildlife cabinets because of the giant replica of a redback spider that was attached to the wall. He loved the dinosaur bones (courtesy of the film Night at the Museum) and really liked the simulated boat ride following the stars to find the Aboriginal campfire. It was a well-spent couple of hours and well worth the trip.
Today I am playing golf as a last hurrah before going back to work, although I am playing with one of ht ebosses from work, so I dare say some significant discussion of my next project will be at hand. I think, after five weeks of holidays, I am ready to get back into it with some real passion. Tally Ho!
