No Bonfire Night down under, but MDF did manage to score herself a job interview and then got offered a job the very next day! Only a short term contract, but there you go.
Also there was a power cut in the morning – I thought power cuts only happened in bad weather? The man in the newsagents across the road seemed to think they happen all the time – WHAT IS THIS – 1976? Still, there hasn’t been one since (5 weeks now), so maybe he was telling porky pies.
Spent a while trying to work out where to buy a telephone (answer = in an electronics shop). No phones for sale in discount stores anywhere – or big supermarkets. Perhaps for the first time in history someone said “I wish there was an Argos around here….” Us Pommies – we love Argos.
