I have started working the 'early' shift on Wednesdays - an 8.00 am start and 4.15pm finish. Not so keen on the earlier start (yes, I know 8am isn't that early), but the early finish is ace.
I'm also doing late shifts (9.45am - 6.00 pm) on Mondays from now on. A later start on a Monday! Wooh!
It seems to be bark shedding season for eucaplytus trees. I'm a dead-leaf-cruncher from way back, but bark gives an even more satisfying crack! when you step on it.
I caught a glimpse of the sun peeking over the horizon this morning when I briefly got up to pull my blind down (er...so the sun wouldn't keep me awake. I was too tired to stay up and watch it rise or even take a photo).
