Wasn't too bad, although I think Jennifer wants me to come up with planting ideas, which not knowing anything about native Australian plants is gonna be a problem. Spent the rest of the afternoon driving around looking at expensive properties and their gardens. Ended up visiting one of Jennifers friends whose house was stunning with bay views, opened a bottle of wine and had a few. Also had a very interesting conversation with the friends husband who works at recruiting overseas workmen to train as bricklayers in Oz. 2 years and aus$10,000 commitment but as I wouldn't have a chance of entry any other way, I am seriously considering. The ozzies are simply the most welcoming friendly people ever and they live a glorious life in a fantastic country and they know it! Oh and it peeked at 37 degrees today.
