Then I flew off to Melbourne to AQC. We traded there from the first one but a couple of years ago decided that was that. I thought it was time to go check things our and I also helped out on the Wonderfil stand when I was wanted. I met up with lots of colleagues and friends and customers who kept saying come back come back but it isn't possible. For the first time i actually checked out all of the stands to see what might be new. I didn't see anything new but I did collect a few ideas for when I have a moment to think about.
I enjoyed the SAQA dinner outing organised by Lisa Walton (not the food though) and I found a fish and chip shop with wonderful fish. I caught up with Jacinta and after dinner she took me to have an icecream at Messina - very nice indeed.
On Friday night I walked to Movida where there was just a spot at the bar for me and I enjoyed a glass of red and a couple of tapas
these were my croquettes
and then I walked to the stadium to watch the Hurricanes clean up the Rebels - it was a good game and I had an enthusiastic bunch of guys sitting next to me.
I came back on Sunday and back to work. Always plenty to catch up with when you go away.
So now I am up to May and it IS May.
