Hey all, well the countdown is well and truly on till xmas, only 6 days to go!! We are very excited and have been buying our christmas food and restraining Garry from eating it all before the big day :)
As you can see from our tree we have LOADS of pressies so thank you everyone for those, i think we are now very nervous of packing our backpacks and fitting everything in hehehe but alot of packages feel squishy like clothes which is great as we are throwing all of ours out at xmas and whatever we need we are getting in the Jan sales as they are all falling apart!
As Garry said in the last blog im now acting restaurant manager at work which is good but not good for my sleep! Doing every evening and some split shifts which involve me getting up at 4.30am so im not looking my most handsome atm!!! :) Ive put my foot down and said im not working xmas day though so at least thats one thing! I was supposed to be working up until 5th Jan but now im gonna do my last shift on the 3rd so that i have a few days off to chill and pack before i leave for Perth on the 7th. Garry heads to Melbourne on the 7th Jan, then flies to Perth on 12th Jan hehe was supposed to be 3 months apart then the time kept decreasing so now its only 5 days apart! We are going to work in Perth, Garry wants to do accounts, im not sure what i fancy doing but we arent in desperate need atm. Then we are going to travel the West coast and head home via hong kong where we are hoping to spend lots and lots of our hard earned money! Hopefully going to buy a camcorder and some other electronics as they dont pay tax on electrical goods so it makes it well cheap for us!
Garry took me on a dinner cruise on Monday night which was lovely and involved a 4 course buffet including seafood, as you can imagine Garry loved the amss amounts of chow and went up to the dessert stand 3 times lol def got our moneys worth! The cruise took us around the waters of Cairns and it was lovely to see it at night, seriously looked so beautiful and made us realise how lucky we are to be living here!We are going to miss it loads!!
