I spent the first few days catching up with people that various friends had put me in touch with, then my birthday came along and I spent it at Manly, a suburb (with a glorious beach) to which you catch a ferry. In the evening my lovely new housemates took me to a local vegetarian restaurant. Then it was time for the work meetings. I lined up five and got immediate work out of two of them. I am now freelancing in rolling news and breakfast television. Woo hoo!!
