Spent the day in true Aussie style - at the beach. Went to Balmoral with Jo and her friend Steph and Steph's friend Kate, both of whom were lovely. The beach was packed unsurprisingly as the weather was perfect. Picked up the keys for next door before we left as today's the day I start house sitting!
We sat in the shade most of the day as all of us are very fair skinned, then went and jumped off the pier a few times until I noticed a jellyfish in the water. After that I obstinately kept my feet firmly on solid ground. Jo and I went and grabbed a schnitzel sandwich from the local cafe as the fish and chip had queues going round the corner and back up the road. Obviously this was THE place to be on January 1st!
Headed home and thought I'd start the year off right by going to the gym, which was a success! Grabbed a few bits and made the arduous journey next door to commence the house sitting.
