After I’d lugged some beer out of the store, ready for it to be exchanged, and (naturally) cleared up the rubbish pile, I amused myself by making a plan of some inspection points in some pipes in an area we are sooner or later going to cover over with earth. I think that for once I made a fair job, + Gordon seemed quite pleased by it, which makes a pleasant enough change. Not that he’s a critical master, but generally I make some sort of a mess of most of the jobs I do round the place. Knocked off work at 3.15 for the entire rest of the day, as I’d obtained the evening off from the Cascade. Spent the time lazily, lying + sleeping by the pool first, then drinking beer + eating dinner.
And for the evening a cultural treat. By chance I happened to have the evening off when a travelling theatre group was presenting its show. They were called “The Drama Twists” + were utter rubbish, worse than even poor English student standard. Oh, a mime sketch they did was alright, as were one, or even 2, songs. But the rest was appalling. Ah well, everyone has to start somewhere, I suppose. Afterwards, Val + I retired to our tent + read. Much more culturally stimulating.
Good to experience a bit of culture, even if it was a bit on the disappointing side. Other than that, it would appear to be a relatively lazy day, while still managing to keep my job going.
