Been back from Sydney / Bathurst a little over a week now. Been flat out unpacking the rest of the house, setting up broadband, catching up with work and other things. I’ve been a bit slack on this blog but I’ve been updating some of the others – Batboys, MacSwitch and Down Under Geek.
Batboys was a great weekend. I’ve talked about it a lot on the Batboys website so I’ll direct you there is you want to read more. We had about 15 guys show up, had a great couple of days, and I can’t wait for the next one.
The other great thing I got to do in Bathurst was catch up with an old friend from high school – Judith Segedin – now Judith Wilde. I had caught the XPT from Sydney to Bathurst on Friday morning – still a great trip: the scenery in the Blue Mountains was beautiful but after 3 1/2 hours I was ready to get off. Judith picked me up at the train station with her little girl. We spent the day together at her place and went out for lunch at Zigglers. In the afternoon we picked up her boy from school and then later in the day, Heather Fillery came round and we spent some time with her.
It was great to catch up with Judith and spend some great quality time together. She was kind enough to let me spend a few hours with her again on Sunday while I waited for the XPT to take me back to Sydney. I got to catch up with her husband Lindsay who is a great guy. Thanks for the great weekend Judith.
There are a couple of pics of Judith on my moblog.
Got back to Sydney Sunday night at went to the Hard Rock Cafe with Gus. Good to spend a bit of time with him although as he was in jury duty all day it was a bit frustrating to have him away all day.
After a week away it was great to get home again on Monday night. Missed Fiona and Jhett very much. Probably the first time Fiona and I have really been apart in two years and it wasn’t much fun. But the break was great and I really enjoyed my time away.
