Couple of interesting articles on ‘The Times Online’ today (I usually logon to the Sun or Daily Star but got a little confused this morning). The first is about Valet Parking which doesn’t sound that exciting until you check out ‘Valet Girls’!!!! Great idea, interesting concept, do they franchise? See their website here.
I also found an article about about driving by Alistair Cook (English Batsman). He made an interesting comment on Australian driving ‘“They are such bad drivers. They can’t drive quickly — they dawdle at 30mph on a three-lane motorway, for goodness sake. And they have these really wide roads that they could be using so much more.” I'd like to make a couple of observations a) Some roads have a 50km limit, which is 30mph b) If he has ever driven in Sydney he would know that the roads are VERY narrow and c) is he expecting to make any friends while he's down here? I have to agree but then the Brits drive too fast. It should be noted that this comes from a guy who drives a bright orange Ford Focus and can’t see the little red balls the Aussie bowlers chuck at him.

Abi arrived in Sydney this morning, an hour and a half later than planned. It seems BA is as punctual as as Virgin. I had to leave for work before she arrived at the hotel but I’m looking forward to seeing her tonight.
