Driving Miss Millie


Phew - back home last night from a massive few days in Perth & as MOTH predicted, my direction-finding molecule 'malfunctioned' & I got hopelessly lost over the 3 days. My poor clients were generally greeted by a frazzled, exasperated Millie, running late from taking the wrong turn & ending up on a freeway going in the opposite direction!

I had a birdsye view from from my hotel room of all the preparations on the Swan River for the RedBull Air-Race which is on this weekend. While I've always enjoyed watching it on telly, seeing the huge set-up for it & the buzz it was creating around town, has made me want to do the spectator thing in person when its in Australia next.

Headed down to Fremantle yesterday late morning to see a client & afterwards couldn't help stopping in to the Kailis Brothers Fish Cafe down on the Marina for a fix of their amazing fish & chips. Then a very 'interesting' trip the back way to the Airport to high-tail it home. Have a huge amount of follow-up to do, so I'll be stuck in the office for the next week.

Although it will be made easier by the exciting news from my boss this morning that our Company won the Customer Service Institute of Australia's National Small Business of the Year Award in Melbourne last night. Hooray for us!!!!


  1. Congrats to your business and to getting home in one piece! - I think we often forget how easy it is to get around our little city given its gridlike street pattern!!!

    Love good fish and chips, just put the sandwich and soup I had for lunch to shame...... xx

  2. My congratulations!
    Lovely story about Perth. I lived in Fremantle for 3 years so memories are back. Thank You!
