I arrived last night and surprisingly at check-in (7:15pm) was offered an upgrade by Paris, unfortunately neither suited and I maintained my existing corner room (xx24).

I went to the EL for a quick snack and drink and caught up with Jojen and jojen+1 (they arenít able to attend Ozfest). When it closed, I looked at options for getting to Surry Hills but surge pricing (cheapest was 1.6x with 20 min wait) and lack of train service as well as buses, I rang Straitman and opted to go to bed early (for me) and just had 9 hours of sleep - something I havenít had in months.

Meeting up up with a group for breakfast in Glass in 40 mins. Better get a wriggle on.

My thanks to Cilla for her generous offer to take me shopping. It seems that I may have been the only one to take her up on the offer, but my overdoing it the last couple of days has resulted in blistered feet and the need to take a break this morning. So if anyone else planned to join, let Cilla know, otherwise enjoy.

Thank you again, Cilla.

My pleasure, hope your feet gets a good rest. I believe it was only Cocobird and moi so I will not be at the meeting point at 11.00am. Please PM me if anyone else needs a shopping guide. I need a few hours notice.

Three of us are slightly behind you on the slow ferry due in at 12:10. We have great deck seats to take photos.
