and half a week slips past! Aside from work and watching the cricket, I've spent time talking to friends, mostly bragging about my nephew. He received the results of his final high school exams this week and did extremely well, achieving first place in the state for one subject and second place in the state for three subjects. He was also included in the distinguished achievers list. Well deserved!
Work is finished for the year and Sydney is starting its slide into holiday mode. Summer holidays here mean most small businesses close down and everyone relaxes. Laid-back mode is the way to go!
