Hello everyone, its been a few days since we updated the website so i thought i would let you know what we had been up to. The last time i wrote, we were in the process of getting hammered before going out to a club. Well, unfortunately, the getting hammered bit proved to be my down fall. I was so drunk i had to go home at 4am and remember very little about the night! Needless to say, Christmas Eve was spent in bed and repenting the sins of the previous evening.
Christmas Day itself was a strange one. We woke early and as customary in my Family, we started drinking asti! a couple of hours later and a strong xmas spirit concoction from our landlord in our bellies, we ambled to the beach to fulfil a must for every Brit in Australia at Xmas. A Walk (or if you are
Pol, a swim!) There was one problem with our wickedly evil plans... it was 16 degrees and raining!
After the crazy cats re-emerged from the surf we headed back on the free train to our lodgings for some scran and more booze. Needless to say, Us Brits enjoyed ourselves more than the Europeans amongst us as the pic shows!
Boxing day was a mixed one, we recovered from the previous days excesses and watched England collapse whilst praying that the game made it to the Third day and we could go and watch.
Well, it made it to the Third day (today) and after rising early, Pol and I made our way to the MCG to partake in the highly recommended Boxing day Test. And how we wished we hadnt parted with forty pounds each before we had left Blighty. For starts, a tout was punting the tickets (in the England end) for $20! and then there was the cricket! Nice views though!
So its off to Sydney tomorrow, we say good bye to Will and Andrea and hello again to our Swedish Chums Rony and Linnea. Lets hope Sydney provides us both with work and more fun.. and if not, well...erm.. we will worry about that later.
Polly and Ali
