I made it.
November 21, 2007
I have been delinquent in updating this blog but I will attempt to add pictures to it here tonight. I am now starting to realize this isn't a holiday - I actually live here! Which means I need to stop eating and drinking and lazing about like I'm on vacation or I'm not going to fit into the camo ;o
I have been off this week too - running errands, making dinner (pad thai for the flatmates and friends was a hit), little bit of shopping, drinking cider, swimming in the pool, etc. I'm sorry it's snowing there - really, I am. I RSVP'd for the work Christmas party which is November 30 during the day. I thought maybe since it is from 10:00am to 6:00 pm, it may not be a drinking party but Steve and Cat said "This is Australia - there will be drinking!" Wow - what more could I want here! And don't worry - there will be no 'gala behavior'.
And the party may soon be over... Jan, my boss is back in Australia from a long business trip in the US and she called today. I think I may actually have to
My first glimpse of the beautiful Australian Beaches. I spent a lot of time getting over jet lag on this one.
start work! Just in time for the Christmas party at least. She's going to come to the apartment to meet me tomorrow, have tea and drop of my computer - yet another sign I may actually have to do something resembling work.
This weekend I've been invited to a 'meet the newbies' bbq on Sat. (another of Cat's friends has a new flatmate) and white water rafting on Sun. I will have to leave the rafting for another time however since I will be attending Len's Christmas party - virtually. That is if I can get my new webcam up and running!
I assembled my bike today without problem - I would like to get out in the neighbourhood for a spin to 'suss out' some running paths - I need to do something to work off these damned Tim Tams!! A car is still a bit of a longshot at this point...we'll see.
If you want to pass this link along, I think it's www.mytb.org/Trish-Code.
The photos are pretty small but you get the idea - I shrunk them to 25% - maybe I'll go 50% next time.
