The whole of this week has been spent doing very little and enjoying taking it very easy. We had wanted to find some work, but everything has started to wind down for Christmas and New Year, so we resigned ourselves that we won’t be working until January. Most days have been spent driving down the road to Barrabup pool - a lovely turquoise natural pool of water in the middle of the forest that’s great for swimming and jumping from trees and stuff! It’s just so nice there - there’s a slightly oily film on the water but it’s not dirty at all - it’s actually tea tree oil! So it’s great for the skin! I’ll write more about our stay in Nannup at a later date. The Internet café’s closing shortly so I have to wrap it soon. Christmas is going to be spent in this hostel, and (with the exception of being at home with family) I can’t think of a better place to spend it. Gary, the owner, is a Kiwi who lives here with his Japanese partner; then there’s Slim, who’s just a legend and makes great bacon sandwiches at 2am when we all get the munchies!! ; an older lady called Kay and here Irish partner; Anne, an American girl who’s been in Australia for about 18 months; an Indonesian couple; an Tom, Anders and myself. The idea is that everyone cooks something from their country. So far we have two big pieces of lamb, a big ham, sushi, Indonesian stuff, prawn cocktail, Swedish meatballs, pumpkin pie, chocolate mousse and more…lots more!! It’s going to be great. I’ll post pictures soon, the connection here is really slow so it would take forever!

I hope everyone has a merry Christmas and a happy New Year! The forecast for here is 36 degrees on the 25th - we just bought a paddling pool and water pistols!!
