Gotta love a public holiday. Time to do nothing! Being a sloth in bed with my iPad, breakfast at lunch time, bit of exercise. End the day with a toast of red wine (full of resveratrol, so good for you, don’t you know) to the workers who fought for an 8 hour day.
Wish I only worked an 8 hour day! But such is my burden.
I read somewhere (The Guardian or some other worthy tome, so clearly true) that every time they granted a public holiday in Germany productivity went up. Of course if you asked the business world in Australia, they would say public holidays cost business sorely. Maybe if we had a less adversarial relationship between labour and management, and more one in the German manner of cooperation.
The progress Day 7 – one week down for Droptober:
And some more photos from our day trip yesterday, just because! I remembered I had them on my phone and I think they are nicer. Look at the bottlebrush! They are blooming nicely everywhere this season. There was a row here and they were full of bees. The building in the background is the school. Why did they used to take such care building school houses? Sandstone, full brick, high ceilings. Craftsmanship. Now it is cheap and bodgy. Interesting to have the cemetery opposite the school!
And here’s an infocus one of the brook and horses. Thanks phone, you do a better job than my iPad.
