What a smart man you are!! I absolutely LOVE you suggestion to aid with my study! Oh.. I can't wait for the next day I can enjoy my bike out on the open road and come home for snuggles!

beezadave:

Regrettably, not that smart. Just done too many exams, and those I decided to 'let it be' on the day before seemed to work out better - and usually coincided with a 'new' rebuilt bike ride, a bundy or red, and I'll leave the rest to interpretation.

Good luck mate!

Home at last! biggrin

Build an extension on the man cave, fix the pipework in the paddock(s), and build a caf racer for the wee microbe because she comes of age at the end of the year.

MMM - and perhaps a bit of teaching - just for the fun of it.

Yep - plans to start living again! blush

Engineering issues at work mean further delays! mad

If I am lucky I'll be home in a week or so - just in time to go to Western Australia for another contract. frown

About 10 days (including weekends!) off this year - I need a break. surreal

Bikes to build, plumbing to repair, dogs, cat, kids, wife and chooks (well not chooks bok ) to hug.

At the moment life is...

A cunning plan my friend, so cunning, if you were to put ears on it, you could call it a 'fox'. From the 15th April, you're on!

To my eastern mates, hope the floaties are still good from 2010, looks like your in for a bitch of a flood season, and my southeastern mates, if a bushfire is coming your way - fucking run.

Those things are faster than floods, and floods don't have 'spot floods' behind you! Just fucking get out of there.

The Pilbara is hot, damned hot, but the cyclones have not been too much of a bother this season, so we're lucky so far.

Still, BHP are doing their best to change goal posts every few days of the job, so the bosses are like epileptic chooks every time the phone rings. Bring it on baby! Embrace change??? Embrace shear disorganisation!

Keep safe amigos!

Cane cutter mix love to be consumed voraciously from this point on!!

(Rum, lime juice cordial and a squeeze of lemon - over ice) nyum nyum nyum!
