I have finished at the Kitchen, spent a week lounging in the sun and now my life has started again.

I went home on the weekend for my mum's birthday. I caught the train (an experience which always makes me wish I owned a car). but if I owned a car then I wouldn't have seen what I saw.

I happened to be looking out the window (my book was being boring) just before the train went under the Westgate Bridge on the way out of town. there was a dead man spread eagled under the bridge. he was in a black suit with a crisp white shirt and an expensive watch, and there were three policemen standing around looking puzzled.

Then, as we were passing the exit to Hoppers Crossing, I saw a wedding party. The bride and groom were crouched in that yellow flowering weed having their photo taken and all the wedding cars were lined up on the side of the highway.

So far this week I have got a job making coffee, (which starts on Friday); I have arranged to go to the zoo with that boy whom I emailed because I liked his name and I have got a job teaching English in China, which starts in January. I can't help but wonder what is going to happen with the rest of the week, seeing that we are only up to Tuesday.

This was the nine o'clock news
