Hi All,
I know you all must be thinking, what is it with these two and this bloody trvel blog, news one month, none for several. When we arrived in SA we thought this is it... we can buy a place in Victor Harbor, I can get a cushy number with BHP at Roxby, Janie can be partly kept working as a midwife at a local hospital and all would be sweet. Well as it would happen this did not eventuate as SA has not quite happened yet with the mining stuff and did not feel comfortable working my ass off for minimal wage and dodgy conditions. So I put out the feelers and wouldn't you know it BHP did have a job, just not in South Aus. Yes we are off to sunny (well mostly, if a little wet) Townsville... and will be off in a little under 3 weeks. How's that for not mucking about!!! The roster is week on week off for those interested. And I know it may be hard for some to cope with but YES it is right on the doorstep to the Whitsundays, Great Barrier Reef, Atherton Tablelands etc, so anyone looking for some sunshine great company is more than welcome to drop us a line and book a room (usual rates of good wine always accepted). We are both very much looking forward to the move and can hardly wait for opportunity to be able to buy/build something that we can entertain and accomodate any of our friends who would like to get away from it all for a bit. Thanks again for the glowing references from my referees, as for the slightly tainted ones, well sorry Chris I won't be able to work for you this year... but yourself, Faye and the boys are more than welcome to stay any time you like.
Hope all is well with everyone and once again don't be strangers and drop us a line sometime.
Love Scott and Jane.
