It's been a long week. I finished my driver induction and training and on Thursday headed out on the road solo. Apart from a couple of missed turns things have been going pretty well. I'm enjoying it, and am even managing the early starts, though I was pleased that today's shift didn't start till 1.50.
I'm looking forward to the weekend: not that we've got any plans but it will be nice to have a couple of days off. Sport Boy is going bike riding at Angelsea with the church youth group tomorrow.
Mrs Holt Press and I might take a drive down to Torquay if the weather is nice. The last couple of days have been warm and sunny but prior to that it's been COLD! We've had the fire alight most nights.
Favourite Daughter has set off on her first big adventure, driving "Kimberley the Kombi" up to Halls Creek with her friend Patrick to visit Casey and the kids at the school who she worked with last year.
The Heir and Spike sound like they are surviving without us which is no surprise though we do miss them.
The new car is running very well and Mrs HP is enjoying having her car back and her independence. Her Dad is doing OK, she goes to visit him 2-3 times a week and talks to him on the phone every day.
Better mention the big sporting news of the week: Tottenham beat Inter Milan (reigning European Champions) 3-1 at White Hart Lane on Wednesday and are top of Group A, pretty cool for their first season in the Champion's League.
