Tomorrow is my last day of freedom as I start the new job on Monday.
I have already had leave approved for the EO National Gathering so there should be no problems with that :))

It should be interesting starting work as I have not worked since the 25th of March last year, due to my back surgery.

The bloke I will working with has been calling me for the past few weeks trying to get me to start earlier LOL But I have resisted due to the fact that we are still unpacking boxes from the move and finding our feet.

Cheers Kev

I don't need an alarm Fred as the bloody tradies start at 6am, I think they need an introduction to the EPA which I am sure I can advise them on, on Monday.

The sexatary already has my coffee order as I did my induction on Wednesday LOL

sounds like the staff won't be like a dog with six tails...more like tails between their legs...that is until you pat them on the head.
Good luck with the sexatary mate....:o)))

It won't be the staff but the developers in the area that will be quitely told of the noise regs and applicable times. Having just moved from Sydney where all tradies abided to the requirements only to have tradies here start at 6am every day of the week in the same estate that I live annoys me. I am an early riser but I like to be able to have the kids sleep in.
I will see what Monday brings :)

G'day Kev, perhaps you should have stayed with us Mexicans where tradies and the like abide by the law.
Anyway, good to know you are mended enough after such a big operation and all that goes with it & about to get back & earn your keep. Best wishes.

I can remember my thoughts on Building Surveyors when I was on the tools and they are not all pleasant LOL As long as it is done correctly then they wont have a problem.

Hi Kev, good luck tomorrow.

By Wed you'll have a taste of the monsoon, that will slow the tradies down. I suspect that it will be bigger than the last one a month ago....lookout Emerald. (the dam is still overflowing) any more rain here will make life interesting for those who just had their carpets replaced.

I'm not being un sympathetic it's just that Emerald was built on a swamp and I'd say that most people who have built or bought in town in the last decade don't know that.

The Council tried to stop alot of the development in the areas that flooded years ago, but were taken to court by the developers and lost...The rest is history.

At least calliope won't flood like that.

Dave

Just below us in this Estate is a flood plain that they are about to build on. The house we are in is above the highest flood level in local history, but I pity the poor sods that build in the lower section.
The extra rain will only fuel the tradies to start earlier as they are already behind schedule.
I still need to find out the finer details on the new car, as they have a 4wd dual cab that has personalised plates for me, I wonder if they will let me have it ha ha ha

Cheers Kev
