Best job in the world!!

Hamilton Island Caretaker - this is for real!
There won't be any office watercooler moments and the successful applicant
will have to put up with Aussies complaining about the occasional brisk breeze
and winter temperatures dropping to 16C.

The chilly newspaper readers of Britain, Scandinavia and America,
however, may think this job advert worth a second glance.

Wanted: one "island caretaker", must be able to swim and willing to
move to Hamilton Island in Australia's tropical Whitsundays to begin 1 July.
Flexible hours, six-month salary of $150,000 (£75,000), non-negotiable.

Ah, Hamilton Island.

Scuttlebutt says Margo's Maid can't figure which end of a bed to flip the hospital corners.

Never mind, the girls at reception tell me there's hope to retrain the burly employee as a windsurfer instructor.
