Its great to be back in Oz. The body took a bit of time readjusting from sub zero temperatures and snow, to bushfire heat.
Luckily I am spending my first three months with the TSO. My database tells me I
have done 62 programs with the TSO over the past 16 years, probably the
equivilant of two years full time work. I love it down here - good food, wine,
company, clean air, amazing countrysie and wildlife and a wonderful orchestra.
Robin is in the UK for 3 more months, so I am here on contract.
I get the chance to put the Lott to work in earnest - play it in, and really get
to work out how to bring the best out of it.
And as the photo shows, I brought the bike over and am working on
the next phase of Project Little Belly, which is tricky when the food and wines
are so fantastic here. Ah well, we can only try...
On lighter note, er literally, I am in the Old Woolstore hotel in Hobart, where
most of the TSO "ring ins" stay. It's wonderful. My suite has its own washing
machine, and I just found out that what the cycle is finished it sings the Die
Forelle theme from the Trout Quintet. How apt!!
