I'm dedicating this entry to Vicki O'Brien. http://members.ozemail.com.au/~bjosh/vicki2.html
I worked with Vicki a few years back. One day I'm hoping that she will come over and train me....Good on ya Vicki.
Its been a while since we least blogged, I'd apologize, but nah, been too busy.
Work has been hectic - www.canadawebhosting.com
It's been mad, looks like I'm working for my pension, I'm hoping that in 3 years - that's it, no more work
So it's been just over a year now since we've been here. What a year. Wow. One thing that we really are starting to miss is our UK friends. Come on Johnny, Tim, Gary - its time to visit.
We've recently had 3 sets of visitors, Daryl and Sofia, Giles and Nikki and Caroline.
For those that don't them a brief introduction:
Daryl - Has a waist the size of a pea, nice bloke, can't drink anymore, he's also very very unfit as we found out.
Sofia - Fit as a fiddle, drinks like a fish, booze and tea. She's also a kidnapper, she tried to pinch Gizmo and take him back to the UK.
Giles - A bit posh, speaks the queens English, moving to Australia, goes to bed at 9pm every night and can no longer drink. Tame, very tame.
Nikki - A lovely accountant who could pass as a ginger Kate moss
Caroline - Pregnant, a mans dream at the moment - i.e., she's eating loads of crap food, heaven, bliss! Of course I have to support her in that department. Pregnancy also has some advantages in the chest department. Sorry Wiz.
So summer has come and gone. Its now very chilly, to the point where the pool is now an ice rink. Bring on the hotub! Alas, mountain biking and golf has come o an end buy I can't complain, I picked up a few injuries that don't seem to be repairing themselves. Urgh I must be getting old. I did notice my first grey chest hair the other day. Ring Ring Ring - Wake up call...
I'm going back up to Silver Star part time this winter so I can get my fix and get my Level 3 certification. It will be tough but hey ho, got to try.
What is it about Halloween about over here? Its crazy. I spent $50 on chocolate and it still wasn't enough to go round. It's irrelevant that I ate most of it before the 31st Oct. In the end I got that fed up of answering the door that we switched all the lights off and let Gizmo answer the door
Elaine sends her love, but as per usual she cant be bothered to come and type or Skype. (Skype - wochilds and elainecchilds). She's just passing the time, a bit of a lady of leisure. Working in coffee shops, dog sitting, etc. Feel free to call her 250 260 4077.
Right I'm off hope your enjoy the photies! Oh, here is a link to Giles and Nikki's blog .. bloody copycats... http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog-entries/gilesandnikki/rtw06-07/1162177140/tpod.html
Lots of Love
Will and Elaine and Gizmo
