Hi everyone! Well here I am now in Melbourne again. I came to Melbourne on 5th Jan as I was struggling to find a place to live as the place is just full of tourists from Xmas and New year so I decided it would be easier to find a place here. Cheryl and Mel (the girls I have been travelling with) decided to come to Melbourne a week or so after me as they still could not find a place in Sydney and unfortunately it seems to be the same here too but its work we cannot find here rather than a home.
Well we have been looking for work for about 2 weeks now and no joy (I have been offered a secretarial job but I don't want that kind of work as it would feel like I am at home) so we have decided to go to Tasmania to do some fruit picking. Its been 40 degrees the last few weeks and the heat here is really humid so Tasmania should be a little more bearable to work in - fingers crossed - and by the time we have finished working and come back up north, hopefully the weather will have started to cool down a bit.
Well as you all know it was my birthday yesterday which I wished could have been spent with you all. Typically it couldn't go a miss without a beer or two so a few of us decided to go out for a few drinks on the Sunday (21st) as we were due to fly out to Tasmania on the 23rd morning at 7am and didn't want to risk missing our flight. Well Sunday night turned to early Monday, more beers Monday, Monday night meeting a few more friends and more beers which turned to Tuesday morning and basically us missing our flight as we were so pissed and tired we fell asleep packing and woke up ten minutes after our flight had left - well heres to hoping we can get to Tasmania by tomorrow to start work!!!!!!!! I will keep you updated!! This may sound bad to anyone reading this but this is just part of our daily lives being drunken travellers ha ha!!!!!!!
If and when I get to Hobart (Capital of Tasmania) I may be working up in mountains somewhere which will mean I may/may not be able to contact you all for a while so I will get in touch as soon as I can.
Speak to you all soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
