Day 681 - Perth, Australia

Day 681 – 19th April 2007 +7:00 GMT

Had a lie in and then went to Whitfords shopping mall and bought some food and had a good browse around the shops. Came back to the house and crashed out for a bit and then had some dinner with Peter and Sarah and watched some TV. I then drove them to Perth Airport as they are flying back to England for three weeks. Jill and I then hired out some movies and had a beer and watched a couple of films before going to bed.

Day 678 - Day 680 - Perth, Australia

Day 678 – Day 680 – 17th – 19th April 2007 +7:00 GMT

Had a busy three days having to get p at 6:30am and working with Peter at Scarborough beach. The job was to extend the kitchen and living room by knocking down the walls and then putting steel support beams up to hold up the ceiling. Peter also removed the chimney stack and re-tiled the roof.
Pete Hard At Work
Knocking down the walls was not hard but the first steel weighed over 100 kilos and was not easy to lift into place.
The Steel Beams With Had To Lift
With the help of Peters friend Murray we managed it. We filled two skips full of bricks and then boxed in the beams and poured concrete to support the ends of the beams.
My Expert Removal Of Plaster
It was an enjoyable three days work but hard work.

Day 677 - Perth, Australia

Day 677 – 16th April 2007 +7:00 GMT

Martin was due to fly back to Sydney at 4pm but got a call to say his flight had been cancelled and he was rebooked on the 1am flight. So we packed up the car and all headed back to Sarah and Peters. We had some food and unpacked the car. Martin got another call saying his flight was now changed to 10am tomorrow morning and after several hours of phone calls he had been told to book a hotel room of his choice in Perth and Qantas would pay. So he booked into the Inter Continental at Burswood, with his room coating $460 a night. I slept for most of the afternoon until Sarah and Peter came home, we all had some diner and then I dropped Martin off at his hotel around 10pm. Peter had asked me if I would help him out at work for a few days so had an early night.

Day 676 - Perth, Australia

Day 676 – 15th April 2007 +7:00 GMT

Got up really late/early afternoon. The weather was horrific with torrential rain, Martin and I were going to play golf but could not due to the weather. So we watched some TV and then we went to the local bar and had a few beers and then sat in the Restaurant where Martin treated us all to a three course meal which was very nice of him. I had The steak with king prawns which was lovely. We spent the rest of the evening watching Dave Gormans stand up Googlewhack which is brilliant.
