... up at 13.30 at ANZ bank for another long set up session. I was an hour late, underestimating how long it would take to sign up with an agency, so joined Edd in time to set up a Super Fund (pension).

We were then fetched by one of the Ford dealers and taken to the dealership, cheque in hand, to collect Edd's car. We drove back to Sandringham to fetch the hire car and then went home. It had been a long and productive day and ...

Chris is originally from England but has lived here for many years now. Julian and Dave, on the other ...

They were just unloading the beach chairs they come set up for anyone to use, so we decided to grab a seat up front and check it out.
