The area is having 8000 new homes built and will be worth more than $500mil, and they're pissing about calling for tenders for one $90k wash. sheesh.
So the 2000km trip was a bust. It would have been a total loss if not for the far-too-short visit with azhreia. She's worth the 2000km.
And it's not a visit to Azzy without one of her rodents taking a lump out of me. At least the bleeding has stopped now. And it didn't rain in Melbourne, for the first time in 20 years.
