ok peoples, I have some pics of my time in Adelaide. I didn't take as many as planned as I was just too tired most of the time to function!

Sitting on the plane, waiting to take off.

My hire car, funny thing about it is it had VIC license plates! So I was a QLDer from WA, in SA driving a VIC car!!

My first hotel room at the Saville City Suites:

The view from my room at about 7am:

My naughty but delicious breakfast:
Image

My second hotel room at the Arkaba Hotel:
Image

Half the bathroom:
Image

the other half with the spa I didn't end up using!
Image

The ladies I met at the Adelaide office were so nice, its a shame I won't be working with them!!

I slept about 3 hours the first night, about 4 the second night and about 7 the third night.

I realised I do not like being away from my family.

But it seems I will be doing it quite alot as they have training sessions in Adelaide & Melbourne regularly... oh well....

But I really think I am going to like this job. 3 people do the jobs that I am going to be doing in Perth but as SA and most other states have censored in pubs etc they have alot more work to do as they aren't legal in Perth.

I got about 11 hours sleep last night. I feel soooo good today!

yep thats the one, cant remember the Foodland but it was early seventies lol, last time i was at the Arkaba Hotel would have been let me see very early 1980's we went to see The Vapours of Turning Japanese fame, lol - from memory (ie when l was a kid there was a motel called the Arkaba too)

was a fun place to live around there we use to run wild and walk into Adelaide, gees was only a year older than my oldest and I wouldn't dream of letting him out of my sight... different era.

ok first official day at the office was good! They aren't dumping a whole heap of stuff on me at once so it was kind of boring!! hehehe

I couldn't do alot of stuff as the girls in Adelaide shipped over all the procedures and stuff by courier so I wouldnt have to lug it all back with me on the plane and it hadn't turned up today.

I was really good foodwise too. I made up a big salad last night and had that for lunch with low fat fetta, tuna, boiled egg Was very yummy!

god, I just weighed myself here at home and I am back up to 86.1kg. Which translates to 87.5kg on WW scales, mine were always 400g lighter.

SO I have gained everything I have lost. YAY

I can't wait till I get paid. I can finally afford decent food!
