When they let us in there was no seating plan you just had to sit from the back to the front filling up the seats as required. 20 mins later they brought food out and it was chicken, fish, steak in that order so if you were in seat 1 you got chicken 2 fish 3 steak. No swapping no choice lol. No speeches, after the meal the brides dad just said thanks for coming who wants cake? The kids have never been to a wedding before so they now think it was normal lol.
I'd prefer that to the murder that's being inflicted on my eardrums. I can't hear what's on the tv because the band's setup is nearest us. Jesus, they're so bloody awful. Last two 'songs' were Sweet Home Alabama and then I would walk 500 miles! The lyrics are right, the tunes are being played back to front I think and the 'singer' is not.

At least the sun was shining for it.

Should be 28 here today. Bbq weather.

That was another thing, there was no music! Not even background music softly playing. It was a function room but felt like a school canteen with less atmosphere.

I went out for my daily walk yesterday and came back too hot and sweaty. Well that's that for another 9 months, time to hibernate indoors until it cools down again.

It was 23 degs C this morning at 8:30 am, which for me is ideal.

I know the south of Oz is cold still, but it would be good to know how hot or cold it is where you are.
In Perth today was a little rainy....around 20 degrees....but its glorious compared to the UK

Currently 29 here in Adelaide but going down hill for the weekend.

One thing about shift work is that you can take advantage of weekday good weather
