After my wonderful trip to Germany it took me a week to get over jetlag. Lots of practical things to do, of course, as well as contacting friends. There was also the usual round of medical appointments. Last weekend I went to Adelaide for a Port Adelaide home game, which was very enjoyable, as we won! There was the usual catching up with friends & with my cousin, Noelene. I also found time to visit Semaphore, where I grew up, which was a nice exercise in nostalgia & reflection. This weekend Port Adelaide are playing in Alice Springs – so I will be watching the game at the pub where our Vic supporters group meets.
