17/01/2009 (Day 3.17) - Incompatible
We spent a lot of today buying extension leads, multi-plugs and lamps for bedrooms, and then fitting them. The biggest problem we have here is that about half of our electrical equipment has been bought here, and the rest imported from the UK. And there's a difference between UK and Aussie plug sockets. We have some travel adapters, but not enough. Each room has to be carefully planned in terms of what items are plugged in where; it's a real pain in the arse, but we're getting there slowly.
A year ago today I pursed my lips.
