Ok, so I've had such a busy time! I'll try to catch you all up on wot I've been doing!
Tuesday 29th April
This morning Kelly, Miles, Ellis and I went exploring the Central Coast! Our first stop was Pearl Beach, an absolutely gorgeous beach with a little swimming pool at the end of it! So we stayed there for a bit, collected some shells and played about a bit until the boys got a little cranky so we left and just drove around the rest of the area... we did stop at Copacabana tho which was pretty cool, and drove through Avoca Beach. Then we stopped off in Terrigal and had ice cream from Cold Rock, very tasty! I then spent the afternoon playing Lego and reliving my childhood with Miles! It was so much fun!! Once Graham came home me and Kelly went to get some food for dinner then went to the pub for a drink! Graham was panicking about where we were... it was quite funny!! After that we just had dinner then relaxed, it was a pretty early night!!
Wednesday 30th April
Miles woke me up this morning saying "Its a new day!!" bless him! So I got up and Kelly had Xavier Rudd on the TV... he's fantastic! So I listened to that while getting packed up. Once I was ready we headed for the train station where I said bye to them all... Ellis got really upset and wudnt stop crying, it broke my heart! But I hopped on the train anyway! We had a psycho in our carriage, ranting and raving about how much she hates Aussies and Australia!! Weirdo! Anyway, got off the train and met up with Tracey, Bertie and Helen's daughter, and her boyfriend Graham. Once I got settled we went to County Bondi.. tho I didnt meet any Irish! The beach was beautiful though and the swell was huge, at least 8ft waves!! Crazy! Once we finished Bondi we met up with Graham and their two friends and went for dinner followed by amazing ice cream!!
Thursday 1st May
Todays the day we went to Taronga Zoo!! We got the ferry across from Circular Quay and I saw my first glimpse of the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge! So I took lots of pictures!! Once we got to the zoo we went up on the SkyRail, a cable car, Tracey was a bit scared but the views of the zoo and Sydney were amazing! One we got off the cable car it was loadsa fun, me and Tracey were just running about like big kids! The zoo was great though and we got to watch the big cat feeding. It was amazing watching the lions up close! I talked to the zookeeper in charge too and she gave me the email address of the head animal behaviouralist there! So happy days, I'll get onto that straight away! After the zoo we went back to the flat, met up with Graham and went for all you can eat pizza for $10!! It was gooood!! Then Tracey took me out to the South Head to get pics of Sydney CBD by night!
Friday 2nd May
After a lovely walk through Sydney Botanical Gardens we hopped on the ferry to Manly. The sky was soo blue today so we got some really good pics of the Opera House and the Harbour! The ferry only took 30 mins and the scenery was lovely (not so many pics tho coz I was concentrating on eating a muffin!)!! Once we got off the ferry, Carol and her daughter Indie met us and took us to the mall so I could get my glasses sorted out! I'll not bore you all with the finest details but hopefully the new ones will be with me by the 14th! After the mall, we headed back to Carols where we waited for Kelly and Miles to come down. Once they got down we headed out to PALM BEACH BABY!!! Home of Home and Away! I was well excited!! And they were filming!! But it was only a commercial unfortunately! But I bought myself a keyring to commemorate the day! Once we got back to the house I met Jade and Darren then we sat down for a huge delicious dinner!! After dinner we watched the girls put on a show and I remembered how I used to do that when I was young!! After that we all just chilled then went to bed!
Well, I know this hasn't been fully updated just yet but we're just about to watch a movie so wanted to finish up before it started! But I'll update again soon!
Love and miss you all xxx
