Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Crepe

La Creperi

I arrived in Spain on Sunday night after an eventful afternoon with Monarch. I had an inclination that the day was going to be chaotic when I received a text message whilst queuing to check in saying the flight was going to be 35 minutes delayed but when I checked in she thought it was only 15 minutes.

Sleep Patterns

Sleep Patterns

I downloaded a great app for my iPhone to analyze my sleep patterns. I am not sure that this month is the best to use as my benchmark due to the World Cup being played through the night and being totally stressed out at work.

I finally upgraded my iPhone to firmware 3.0 and I have not seen any problems running it on my 2G yet and I have even managed to squash 25 icons on my desktop with a folder full of games. And before you say, what about backgammon, it is not a game, it is a way of life LOL.

AFL

What do you do post World Cup and pre EPL, you go to the AFL. My first Australian Football League Match was Carlton vs Western Bulldogs and I was supporting Carlton. They LOST! It is a lot less stressful then watching Man City and it has a nice feel not having segregated seating.
