I’m back, sorry I have been a bit slack this week but I have been very tired and just not up to writing. It has not been a very eventful week either so it has probably worked out for the best. Today however, well that is another matter.
Last night Brian and I met some of his work colleagues at The Bath Hotel for a couple of quick drinks after work, and today we had intended to stay at home as we have a 50th birthday party to attend tonight, a good friend from my days at Solver/Wattyl.
The best laid plans of mice and men, Brian propped himself upstairs on the Internet this morning looking at real estate, the next thing I know we are out the door and on our way to an open inspection. On the way we stopped at the Chemist Warehouse in Port Adelaide as I needed a couple of prescriptions, terrible service. The pharmacists are flat-out taking prescriptions, making them up and dishing them out, while the other staff take their time, oblivious to the workload of the two poor pharmacists, and when they do serve you they cannot even crack a smile.
Off to Vista to check out this house, quite a disappointment, a huge block on an a very steep angle, plenty of room for my racing pigeons but the house was a let down. Back in the car to head home and we spy another couple of open inspections, again nothing very inspiring. One house advertised landscaped gardens front and rear, if you call dead lawn and uneven concrete paths landscaping then it was landscaped. The agent was none too happy when I pointed out their false advertising.
I also took the opportunity to show Brian one of the houses I grew up in, it was almost unrecognisable, but then again it has been 40 years since we lived there. We also drove past the site of my old primary school, you know you are getting old when your primary school has been demolished, Hope Valley Primary School, a lifetime ago.
Now we are back home to get ready for tonight’s festivities. Enjoy your weekend and thank you for reading.
