Back in WA

It's been a busy 36 hours. I finished work at 10 on Wed night, drove to Melbourne and stayed the night at The Heir's apartment then flew out of Melb for Perth at 6.30 Thurs morning.
Alex picked me up from the airport and helped me collect boxes and gear before dropping me at Claremont.
The last 2 days have been spent packing up and preparing Spike and The Heirs gear in preparation for shipping to Vic. On Sunday Spike and I will fly back to Melb and the whole Holt Press family will be reunited again and living in Victoria. We are naturally pleased and excited at the prospect.
Also squeezed into the last day and a half has been:
Watching St Nick and my former teammates from the Busselton vets footy team playing Mandurah in the curtain raiser at Subi before the Eagles game last night. It was great to see the boys and catch up with a couple of mates.
Last night Letchy, Hugh, Broady and I convened the Breakfast Club and had a great night of talking laughing eating and praying at Broady's place. Our meetings are necessarily irregular these days but always good value. Phil was not there but the big news is that he and his family are returning from Afghanistan shortly to resume life in WA.
I spent this morning hanging out with Letchy before picking up a small truck from Bruce & Paula's neighbour and heading back to Claremont to finish the packing and getting all the boy's gear to the freight company.
Tonight I am staying at Sally & Warren's and we've had an excellent time catching up on one another's news.
It's good to be back in WA for a few days, not because of the place but because of the people. I've loved seeing a number of friends and there are more to see tomorrow night at the mid-season draft BBQ at St Steve's.
