Well, a few days ago i spent half an hour typing up a new blog, telling you all what chey and I had been up to (snorkelling with reef sharks at Sea World, going to the beach and getting hammered by the waves, a theme park or 2, etc etc) and as I hit save the computer crashed and I lost it all.
Never mind, I am now in a hotel next to Sydney Airport, waiting for my flight to Honolulu tonight and only have 10 mins of credit left so this is going to be short.
Christmas and New Years in the West/Pullen households are very busy with lots of people (and I mean lots!) and lots of drink and food. Exactly what Christmas should be like! Chey's cousins, Kelly and Kyle were really good at lending us their cars when we wanted to go somewhere (the insurance works differently over here) so we've had a free reign and done lots of stuff together just the 2 of us, and also with her family when they were off work. I've also been adopted my Chey's nan!
Chey left to go back home yesterday morning, and I flew down to Sydney (the shortest flight ever, only an hour and a half). It was weird watching her go, a bit like I felt when I first left England. Suddenly after nearly a month I was alone again, having been with people solidly for 4 weeks, all day every day. My hotel room is great (thanks Expedia) and the nice man on reception has extended my checkout time to 2pm which was very nice of him.
Ooh, i only have 5 minutes left, I'd better go and try to update this another time. Can't believe i'll be back in 2 weeks exactly! That's so weird! Looking forward to it, will write on here again as soon as I can.
Mum, Chey said she might pop over monday if she gets chance on her way back to worcester.
