Here's a little advice we have been given (from Pippa's brother Nigel) about readjusting to life back in Adelaide. We welcome any more suggestions! We will need all the help we can get!!
REFAMILIARISATION TRAINING – an occasional series
If you see a big white box in the kitchen – it’s called a fridge and it’s where you’ll find food keeps for more than a day!
Don’t go looking for milk in a tin – it actually started life as a liquid and can also be found in the big white fridge.
The silver metal things in just about every room are known as taps, they provide instant access to water – even hot water!
There’s no need to use the bucket in the laundry to flush the loo. Just press the button at the top of the cistern and it does it for you.
Don’t shake hands with everyone you see in Blackwood, they’ll think you’re weird. Learn to ignore people you don’t know, don’t even smile at them.
There’s no need to drop your head when entering a room, you won’t hit your head, not even when standing fully upright.
Having all your colleagues and work tasks within walking distance is a ridiculous notion and no fun. It’s much better if you can space all your appointments at least 20km apart.
OK, that’s enough training for one day. More soon.
