I arrived at Sydney airport a little drunk (too much free Jacob's Creek on the plane). I'd met George (who was sitting next to me) and we really hit it off, so i stayed with her at her mates house in Coogee for my first night! We went for pizza and a few beers but George and i were both knackered so we went home and shortly crashed out! I woke up in the morning, horrified to realise i didn't know where i was! It soon all came back to me and we went for breakfast!

I met my cousin David the next morning and he said i could stay with him in Maroubra until i got myself sorted which was really nice of him! It was a nice place, and i had my own room but it was miles away from everyone and everything so i was glad when George and i found ourselves an apartment in Bondi, right next to the beach.

I've also got myself a job, running a Hairdressing and Beauty Salon 2 seconds from the apartment and beach!!! How jammy is that! Just completed my second week there and am loving it! Its great to have a pair of scissors back in my hands! I also work with Gina, who rents a chair, we get on great, thank god! So its back to normality for me for a while, got a place, got a job, settling in to the Bondi feeling very well! Could sooo get used to this way of life! And my tan is coming along lovely!!!

The area is nice and has a great feel to it, its just coming into Summer so the weather is getting better, and there's more people about everyday! George and I are going to stay here until the end of January, when she will be going back to the UK and i hope to meet up with some pals from Rarotonga and travel up the east coast! Would really love to see the west coast too as have heard so many wonderful things about it (apparently you can swim with Whale Sharks off the Ningerloo Reef near Broom! How amazing that would be) so trying to save a little money while i'm working, and not go out drinking too often! (i go across the road to the Bondi Bottle Shop and buy bulk wine instead haha)

Will upload some more pictures soon.

By for now............x
