Over 60, with a son 32 and a daughter 22. Retired on 26 October, 2007, after 37 years with the company. No matter, I've led an interesting life with much travel in Southeast Asia, the Pacific Region, and a little bit of Africa.

Page 5-6 - August 19th

Monday 19th dawned rather close & muggy. At 8am we had breakfast & then at 9:50 we went to the baths for a swim, after which we came back at 11:45am & were informed that we were to shift (just as we thought)so we had our dinner & packed up ready to move & here we are patiently awaiting the time (2:45pm). Moved off at last & after a hot march we arrived at our destination & started digging in on a nice big bank. At dark we had the dugout just fit to sleep in so went to bed & tried for a good nights rest.

Saturday 19th saw me sleeping in a little, then up for coffee, a read of the Saturday newspaper, and some laundry into the washing machine. Then, the blog duties. Mrs D had a much better night last night, poor dear. Today, a solo trip to do the family shopping - Mrs D is under strict instructions to rest.

Generally, a quiet day. Prepared dinner as soon as I got back from the shopping trip, so that was out of the way. Helped my daughter with graphing of results from one of her practical sessions, something about stimulus intensity and reaction times.
