Where I stayed
Anyhoo, We woke up with full intentions of going for a Sunday Roast. Mainly because, we didn't know what else to do and we know it's cheap in Tin Billy's (a backpacker's hostel, up the road), but also because we need to get our 5 fruit and veg, a "Week" in!!!.....oh and not forgetting I've been craving gravy since God knows when!!
We didn't get to have the mouth watering beef with Yorkshire pud, or chicken with sage & onion stuffing (my mouth is watering..I'm serious!). We yet again, took the sensible, money saving option by calling into the supermarket to buy water, nibbles & fruit. We headed to the River to catch a Citycat ferry to Southbank
Anyway, we were having an amazing time. We sat there chilling out from 12 Midday- 4.30pm. Towards the end of the day, a confused guy passed me, with a child swinging from under his arm and said to me " You must be a Pommy right? It's bloody freezing!!" At first, I looked at him with utter confusion ..Uh?...As he walked away ....Phill said " any excuse to speak to a bird in a bikini. eh..!!" Then it dawned on us that our patch, was the only 5.4ft (my height) diameter area, the sun was still beaming down on!! I put my book down and sat up to find everyone...I mean everyone.. ..wrapped up in hoodies, scarf's and Ugg boots!! There I am laying flat out, sucking in my stomach (as you do...), in the circle of sun, wearing nothing but a bikini and smile!
After discovering that there was a lot more to do in Southbank than read books with romantic glimpses, we caught the Citycat back to town. We got lost and desperately seeked a food joint that wasn't charging $40 each for steak or Moreton Bay Bugs (whatever they are?) with King Prawns. Yes, we managed to get lost......yet again!
We're home safe now and due to the fact that we can't afford to go on the pop, once again, we have spent tonight listening to music and playing computer games on our laptop!!
We need jobs.......tomorrow's the day to find work!
Bye for now xxx love ya, ya cheeky so and so's...xxxxx
