There and Back again
6th Jan 2017 - Australia & Japan 2017
It's all about a close shave.

My search for trousers resulted in two purchases, a new pair of jeans and a pair of light shorts. I also managed to sort my outfit for the wedding in Australia. I only have one decision outstanding related to whether I go with the pink or white socks.

The wife completed a number of shopping trips  and also has a couple of outfits for the wedding. For the past couple of days George has been running around and I have been at home doing manly pursuits like setting up the new alarm system and searching for batteries and wires. She knows me well enough to keep out of the way whilst doing this, as it involves the inevitable search for the lost batteries and wires but, fingers crossed, it looks like we have everything. 

Today's tasks have revolved around cutting back the garden before we go away and hair cuts. George visited the 61a Hill Road salon and I walked into Portishead for the severest haircut that I have had in some time. My flat cap will be slipping off my head it's so short. I  have also gone for the number one shave of the beard, so we are now prepared for the hot weather in Oz. 

Tonight is a trip to the pub for Bath v Newcastle and another look at our lists to determine what we have forgotten. Only three more sleeps until we travel.
