Today, after a morning of consoling myself with the wit of Bill Bryson's book, The road to little dribbling, and drinking a large mug of coffee with soy, I decided to do some house hunting. In the process of looking for something to live in, rather than invest in, I discovered some of the hottest spots in Hobart. By hot, I refer to potential criminal activity. It will not surprise you to know that I am yet to secure a spot in the real estate market.
On my way back after exploring these spots ripe for (criminal) development I encountered the kind of driving behavior that made me feel like I was slowly losing the will to ever get in a car again. Strangely enough I did get great service from a service station though which is a novelty in itself.
After a traditional moan and swear with my mum who had just encountered similar driving conditions, I made dinner and filled a small freezer with meals. The soup I have in there I am less keen on but the meat, veg and carbs with sauce will keep me going for a few days. When I stopped exhausted I watched the first episode of the new television series Lethal Weapon. I thoroughly recommended it. So good to watch well made action and drama series, and it made me laugh.
FYI: I would always recommend Bill Bryson's travel books, they really are the perfect book on a summer holiday, or when you need distraction from your worries.
