Golly well im finally here, and the jet lag is wearing off....hopefully ill wont fall alseep on the sofa again today!! This is my second full day here, and lets just say the flights werent enjoyable! From LA to Brisbane the wind was bad, so ended up flying for over 14 hours - then as our flight was late in i missed my connecting flight to Melboune. Haha i was running round the airport like a mad thing trying to get my bags and not miss my plane! But managed to get the next plane, so was only an hour late arriving into Melbourne. Then when i got off the plane i walked straight past my Uncle David who had come to pick me up....smooth move Frances!!!
When i got here it was sunyn and bout 34oC, so pretty hot, but storms were forecast. It rained a tiny bit yesterday but was still warm, and was nice and sunny this morning but rained a bit this afternoon. AT this rate i don't think Ill be getting the tan i was after :( . But next week the weather is supposed to pick up, woo!
So yesterday, after sleeping for hours and hours, we went to a place called Healsville Sanctuary. It was awesome and we saw all the proper animals of Oz....i felt like id properly arrived. I even stroked a kangaroo, how wow is that! SO we saw Dingoes, Koalas, Parrots, Snakes, Lizards, Platypus and Tazmanian Devils. Pretty awesome! Then when we got back home i was sitting in the garden and 2 King parrots and some Rosellas(pretty little parrot things) flew down and sat next to me....definately better than the blackbirds we get in the garden back home!
Today just had a relaxed day and drove round the Dandenongs, which are the mountains (well hills) around where im staying, so was all good.
No plans so far for tomorrow, but hopefully the sun will be out. Heading into Melbourne at some point, and defo want to do some shopping :)
Anyway hope everyone is ok and Ill write again on here soon.
Oh and by the way, I cant use my hotmail account here, so dont email me to that. I will be able to email off my uncles email though when i sort that out!
Lots of Love xxxx
p.s. Mum and Dad.....im not crying hehe! Hope youre not either!!! Love you xx
