MY EA81 starting circuit

Went to start the wagon yesterday morning and all that I could hear was what I think was the clicking of the starter solenoid.
The battery is new so I rolled it off to the side of the driveway and went to work in the Suzuki Grand Vitara (daily driver).
In the arvo I hopped into the wagon and if fired straight up.
I recall from other posts that with age contacts become an issue in the ignition switch but if I am correct this seemed to be OK as the solenoid seemed to be operating.
My next action will be to check the main power supply from the + line of the battery to the starter, the battery terminals, the - lines from the battery to earth and maybe swap out to my spare starter while I am at it.
This is a pain as it looks to be an intermittent issue.
Any other suggestions where to look and what to look for ?
