It is summer and traditionally both in France and everywhere else you go on holiday in summer. It seems that in the United Kingdom you go away for summer as in you go away to find summer because there really doesn’t seem to be much of a summer here. No, there is not much of a summer here. There is just rain and wind and boring stuff but we have to keep going and find away to enjoy life I suppose. So! I’ve gone on holiday and I am writing to you all from Australia! That’s right, I’ve gone to Australia for the summer but, as the science buffs among you out there may no it is not summer in Australia right now it is winter! Yes! I’ve come half way around the world all the way to Australia and I’ve done so at the absolute worst time of the year you could ever hope to visit such a place. Which is great.
I’m here visiting a friend who works for the oven cleaning company I talked about last week. Turns out I wrote that thing and an old friend googled it because he works for them now in Australia and recognized me! He got in touch and I headed over! He’s been working running his own franchise cleaning ovens for a fair time now. I know him from way back when when we worked in the same kitchen in Paris. Never thought he’d go from putting things in ovens to cleaning them!
But he has! He said he’s fine with cleaning ovens. He drives around to different towns and little settlements out where he lives, he has a relationship with his customers and he gets to organize his own working like. NONE of this is true of working in a kitchen. I was convinced he’d be hating it but he is really not. I’m actually a little jealous now.
Well maybe, but I’m looking forward to getting back to work. It’s the only work for me!
