How's the weather??!!? hahahaha!! It's just coming into summer here so it hits 24 degrees at 8am!! Although I freeze all day at work with the air conditioning on. How many times have you had to scrape your car windows so far???!! hehehehe!!!
Tuesday (13/11/07) I had a phone call from Henry up in Cairns to tell me my package, which my mum sent to me 5 months ago.. had finally arrived. Thank God for that. I was starting to worry that my boots had got for a walk. I now have to pay for it to be sent to me and then pay to package it back up and send home again!! But hey, at least it didn't get lost on the way.
Anyway, Wednesday the admin girls (Chris, Shelley, Me & Jess) put up the Christmas decorations around the office
A Christmas Joke for you all, whilst we are in the Christmas spirit...!
The three wise men arrived to visit the child lying in the manger
One of the wise men was exceptionally tall and smacked his head on the low doorway as he entered the stable. "Jesus Christ!" he exclaimed.
"Write that down, Mary," said Joseph "It's better than Derek."
hahaha made me giggle!
Anyway on Saturday, me, Stef and Char went out for a few drinks in the Valley. We're bored of champagne so decided to invest in a bottle of Southern Comfort. Char started to reminisce as she hasn't had Southern Comfort for years! We sat on the balcony chatting and dancing to Girls Aloud until 11.30pm and then hit the town. The people in the block opposite have had disco lights put in their lounge! They are sooo annoying! The shine into our lounge which annoys the hell out of us all, I'm complaining to Murray (the site manager).. they must be in breach of peace or something ey Frank?! haha!! Also I think they are swingers as well, there's a couple living there but they always have different couples over all the time and they all seem a bit too close for my liking!! Anyway, Dave Barry, a guy from St Neots messaged to say he was in Brisbane for a few days so we headed to a pub called RG's to go and meet him. Had a few drinks with him and promised to catch up in the week and then headed to another bar which played really good old tunes! We found a booth that kind of resembled Cadbury's Chocolate Fingers and shimmied the night away!!
Sunday me, Stef and Dermott went for a drive in Dermott's work car (which was filthily disgusting and Dermott's driving is scarier than mine)
Monday after work Stef and I met in the Valley and headed to Butter Beats to get some tickets to see The Gossip. Thankfully they had some left, it's a life long ambition (well for as long as The Gossip have been together) for Stef to have her picture with Beth so we hope to get there early and get to the front. They're not really big over here so I don't think it will be heaving, plus it's a really small venue so it should be a close and personal gig which will be good. We can rock out with Beth and scream "standing in the way of control" at the top of our voices until we cant speak. That's the plan anyway. So yer, off to see them on 12 December in a club called Zoo in the valley.
Then Monday night I finally managed to book my flights home
I still have absolutely no idea what I will do with myself between now and then. I am staying in Brisbane until Christmas and New Years, when I will travel to Sydney. My boss has extended my contract up to Christmas, I asked her if she will need me in January, unfortunately there are a lot of movements in January for this team and I may not be needed. However Shelley is off all of January and therefore they might need me. I would rather stay in this team and work here for a bit longer as it's so close to home, easy to get to and the money is ok. Plus I am settled and really like everyone I work with, I cant be dealing with being the new girl in the office all over again!! At some point I want to hire a car and see Ayres Rock but I might have to wait until February to do that now, as I need to work and get some more money together, I want to buy a whole new wardrobe in Asia along with doing my Padi (diving course) if I can. On another note, Dermott is taking over on the lease and will be giving me my deposit money back which is brilliant for me as that will go towards my spending money in Thailand... and maybe a nice new laptop if I can afford it.
Elmo arrives here on Sunday night, so I am really looking forward to seeing him. I have booked for us all to go to South Bank next Thursday 29th November for the opening of Open Air Brisbane (
http://www.brisbaneopenair.com.au/) which is basically an outdoor festival that goes over a few weeks
So anyway, that's all I have to update you all on at the moment.
Before I sign out I have to give Gemma Redman a shout out for getting not just one gall stone in her bladder but 8 in total!! Well done Gemzy... I don't know, anything to get out of work!! Hope you feel better soon sweetie xxxx
Be safe, have fun and send me prawn cocktail crisps... I'm dying over here!!
Love you all millions xxxxxxxxxx
