I know I know I have been here for 5 weeks now and have not yet updated my blog but I'm not gonna lie - my social like is nuts here and I hardly ever have the time to check email because we are always off doing something! I don't really have the time now either but I definitely plan to write a long blog with pics (though they mostly consist of us drinking or eating!) this week. But I just got my address so I wanted to send that out to people - would love love love to receive some mail over here. It is trustworthy and I will def get it though it could take a few weeks.

Also someone called me last Sunday from the States but I work Sundays - our weekends are friday and saturday so if you call me on Sunday it will have to be in the early afternoon your time (7hour time difference).

Lots of love
