December 2017.  The second Ashes test match in Adelaide.  The city where Bodyline occurred.

My accommodation search struggled to find a reasonably priced hotel of any quality so I took the Airbnb route for the first time.  £23 a night.  A few minutes from the famous Adelaide Oval cricket ground.  Josephine the retired nurse from Essex was letting out her spare room.  I grabbed this bargain.

Today an email.  She’s cancelled on me due to moving house.  Full refund.  A tad disappointed.  Back to hotels and a big bill now.

How on Earth Did I Used to Fit Work In?
