A Travellerspoint blog

Five weeks of Working to go

rain 24 °C

Now then!
Its been a long time coming but i feel that i should write another blog whilst in Sydney so you lot out there (if any of you read this) dont feel too forgotten.
What have we done since we last spoke?.. well, ermm, Australia day was fun.. and ermm. Well, to start with, i now have a new job! i am currently employed with the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home care (sounds very George Orwell - 1984!) and have been appointed to write a training manual for the departments Data Entry Officers. Anyway, the week before i started, we bagged some top tickets to the One Day Cricket Final. Had a top day (albeit being marred by several torrential downpours and not being able to get drunk as the beer was 2.5%!) England won (Hurrah) and all the Aussies at work had their tails between their legs when 9am came on the monday morning!
Other than that not much has happened. We spend our weekends exploring the City and the one past we found a lovely little walk through some interesting flower arrangements and water displays. It was however, spoiled by the multitude of Mcdonalds and fast food resturants around it! After finding a nice pub that sold Pints! (yes, pints, not those silly little Schooners!) we took our selves to the Supermarket where we bought some nice fresh stuff to make pasta!
Sunday was spent lounging around and making more plans for our trip North which is due to start around the 1st April. Again i tell all this but have no clue that any of you are actually reading so if you are.. please leave us a nice comment telling us that you care!
Also came to realise today that the customer service here is terrible. I tried to complain about some flowers i bought for Polly for Valentines day. To cut a long story short, they died after 24 hours and when i asked for a refund i was fobbed off until this week (yes... nearly two weeks later) when a manager called me to say that the flowers were fresh when delivered and it must have been something that we did to them. HE then offered me a 25% discount off my next order to which i just laughed! Spend more money with them!??!?!?
Scum bags.

Anyway, enough of my whinging. im off to veg infront of t'telly
