It has been really hot today but we had to work in the morning lol
Started work at 10am, found out that we weren't working together today. It was ok though as we would have more hours on our own. Phil said we would be taking the cars, i was a bit nervous because i hadn't drove a car for ages!
Adam got to take the truck & i got the little mazda! We left at 10 to drive to the right roads, Phil told us directions & i drove out first, we had to go the same way so Adam was kind of following me. I drove way to far & Adam had turned off, i soon realised and turned round, Adam phoned me & helped me get there.
The roads are pretty simillar, except the indicators are on the right so we both put the window wipers on instead of indicators.
We had to clean 3 rooms each, i found today the hardest as it was really hot & i was a sweaty betty. The worst bit is carrying all the bits to the rooms as there is so much that you need, thats why its better when you work together.
We mostly did twin rooms today which is worse as you have to change 2 sets of beds, mattress protector, fitted sheet, pillow protector & case & duvet. make sure its all tucked in neatly which can take a while.
I finished before Adam & went back to the house, he came back about 20 mins later, he had a delay because someone hadn't left the room so it wasn't ready to be cleaned.
When we got back we discussed the rooms and it turned out we both had rooms with spiders in! one room took me 20 mins just to clean the desk area because of all the spiders tucked up! eww! one house even had a cockroach inside. We do really love our sharehouse now & are probally not going to move.
After work we came back and chilled out, then i got ready for a walk in interview. Popped in and gave my cv, told the guy a bit about myself etc, he said that he was ideally looking for someone who had travelled more of Australia but he would bare me in mind as its good im staying in Cairns. The job was a part time tourist booking thing.
I applied for another job today, events orgainiser in Cairns. You had to write in under 200 words why you would be good at the job. Someone emailed me back today and they want me to pop in Thursday to see what im like. The job is only for 4 weeks so its a nice way to earn a bit of money without comitting to a long job. I think it is orgainising days out for other backpackers & being the tour guide thing. I just wrote on the application that i think i would be good because i am really orgainsed, i am fun & am sensible when needed lol. I also said i would like to help people have a good time in Cairns. so we will see Thursday what thats all about.
Adam got a call from the tiler today & he is working at 9.30am tomorrow, so thats so good. The man said he has got loads of work on so hopefully Adam is sorted now for work. When he is not tilling he will put his name down for cleaning & vice versa. So proud of him for getting work so quickly.
Later in the afternoon we dipped in the pool, it was a beautiful day and a lovely way to chill after work.
We had a fry up dinner thing tonight, was really yummy.
Briefly skyped Mummy G while cooking & Adam got to speak to her too so thats good.
Rent is sorted for this week now whooo - we have earnt 240 Dollars in 19 hours + have 3 hours 40 mins rolled over for next week. Tomorrow we will start building up hours for next week rent.
Also 2 people moved out, The d*** boy! & Emily (Recently discovered messy irish girl)
& we had a lovely new sharemate! he actually came & introduced himself to us & he is from Hull probally about the same age as us if not younger. Staying until December 31st so we are really pleased.
We now live with:
Kuzu - Japanese guy who doesn't speak much - really friendly
Yuika -Japanese girl, really sweet and innocent
2x South Koren boys - hardly see them, they moved in a week ago & are in the bedroom furthest from us. Haven't caused any probs, don't think they speak much english.
& Lewis - British guy from Hull, really nice & friendly, rekon we will have a laugh with him
There is one empty single room left so i am hoping for a nice girl & then we will be complete.
Lewis even mentioned about the people downstairs being a bit unsociable (so we are glad its not just us that think that) when we go down to do washing we always say hello but they are a bit clicky. Lewis said he wants to use the jacuzzi & we should just got down in a group and have a bbq & jacuzzi night lol. He just wants to have a good time like us so we like him!
