As I have a bit of time in between doing my washing and going to work I thought I should update you all to what I have been doing ove rthe past few weeks. Work has been pretty intense and I have been working some ridiculous hours over the past 2/3 weeks and pretty much 7 days a week, but the money is good so can't complain too much I suppose. This Friday just gone I started at 7am and didn't finish till 3.30am the following morning which was pretty ridiculous BUT after we hand this thing in on Tuesday we get taken out for a massive meal and a s*** load of free beer so there are always upsides to all of this!!! So my contract will finish at the end of next week (27th) and then I am technically unemployed!!!
So in between working stupid hours, I have managed to have a little bit of fun, we had a big party for the Belgian guys as they were leaving and we also went to the races for the day and got really badly sunburnt….it was a great day though. Before you ask no I didn't win any money and yes I did lose a fair bit especially considering we went to the casino afterward……I haven't really had a big night out money wise since I have been here and I made up for it then as I spent near to the tune of $400.… ouchie. Me, Russo and Sam also did the matrix tour (by saying tour it does sound like we were shown around by someone but it wasn't quite like that we just walked around on our own finding the landmarks in the matrix) it was pretty cool though and russo spent a day at work photoshopping the pictures and combining them with the snaps from the film and these are all on face book if you want to see them, it was a pretty cool day. We went to a revolving bar in the middle of Sydney cbd which was really good apart from being very expensive, we bough tone drink and then stayed for about 3 hours, I think they were going to ask us to leave eventually, but we got great views of the city from there. The Belgian guys left which was a sad day, we all did goodbye messages for them and then serge and Olivier put them all together and made a quality movie of photos and messages and music, it was awesome even if it did make me cry a little bit inside. The past 2 weeks have been really boring as I have been working everyday usually till about 11/12 at night which is s*** buit I have been making a lot of plans for when I finish work. Me and Sam are going to rent a car and go up the coast for 2 weeks which is going to be a lot of fun, I do feel a bit sorry for sam as I Haven't been able to help in the planning at all but we are both really excited about just jumping in a car and seeing where we end up!! I will fly back from Cairns on the 18th to Sydney and then will be all set for xmas and new years!! Xmas should be great I will go up to my aunty and uncle's to spend Christmas with them and then we will have a big day for new years and go to a park with a good view of the fireworks and get drunk all day….. Cannot wait!!!
So its only a short one but this is what I have been up to, as I said its been a pretty quiet few weeks because of work but will pick up once I finish on Friday. Hope your all well and enjoying the cold weather back home… its going to be 38 degrees today….. Much love
