Computer setup

The new computer is setup and on the net - Dell Dimension 3000.

Just been reading about web 2.0, posted an item for sale on ebay and bought an item on ebay - a cordless phone. Will be doing more investigation on what product lines are viable on ebay.

It seems Nic has been a good boy at school today and his shoes are perfect.

Jes, suprisingly started crying when I dropped her off at school ... "I don't want to go to school today...". Thankfully Mrs Trewin calmed her down and I was able to scamper off to work. She was fine when I called home.

Going out to lunch tomorrow and off to Claire's place on sunday.

AFL Grand Final 2005

AFL Grand Final 2005

The AFL Grand Final was on Saturday, the teams West Coast Eagles (from Perth) and the Sydney Swans. As it is every year, the game was played in Melbourne. I watched it in the Walkabout pub in Wimbledon, packed full of other crazy Australians at 5am!!

Great atmosphere but unfortunately, West Coast lost by 4 pts.


Im back

I’m back

It’s been too long, I know. A lot has happened since my last posting in July 2004 ;-(o).

So expect more….
