So we have settled nicely into Em's uncles place, we have both got work so have started earning a bit of money already! James is working in construction and Em is food and cocktail waitressing. Who said there were no jobs in america?!
It's supposed to be winter here and its still around 30 degrees each day, so it has been hard to get in the xmas mood! So we decorated Em's uncles house and made sure we had the compulsory chocolates and nibbley food treats were lying around the house! But for xmas day we did something a bit less traditional... Em got James a deep sea fishing day off of the Florida coast and decided to do it on xmas day! Em's uncle also came along, and we spent the day sunbathing in the Mexico Gulf sea, fishing for our dinner! We caught 7 grey snapper in total (Em 3, James 2 and Jorge 2, yes, Em beat them both!). James won the ugliest fish competition, while Jorge won the 'first to catch a fish'! We saw dolphins, turtles and pelicans, and even met a man from Luton which was quite random! We all had a lot of fun and cooked up good old fish and chips when we got back because we couldnt be bothered to cook a huge dinner! Was delicious though!
This week has been quiet in terms of work because of new year, but next week we hope to get into a bit more of a routine. For NYE we're going to head to a nightclub and show them how the English party!
We wish everyone a very happy New Year back at home and hope 2009 brings lots of happiness for you all! xxxx
