It's difficult to catch the footy here but I'm making the effort to watch the blackburn game tonight....midnight ko at the local so tomorrows not looking good! I guess your off to Ibiza with everyone else then - don't do anything I wouldn't mate.....hmmm! Got a message off nic the other day, she was talking about dragging you out traveling with her - I think you should mate you'll love it! The duck is now a house member and eats more than I do - greedy bugger! Take care mate Mwah
Response: You paralysed yourself with the yaga juice mate, there is no blaming me for that one - especially enjoyed the taxi ride home where you were drueling into your crotch...best way to finish off oz! You pics of NZ look really cool but my god I bet its cold! The 'real' monkeys on tuesday were on top form and that night ended up with a 4am finish and work the next day....rough! Enjoy your travels fella!
Response: G'day mate! I guess Lorraine has passed on my greetings although I am now concerned that I will return to an under water world of strange looking amphibions all called bob!?! I'm getting into the AFL now, took a while to understand what was going on but a weekly attendee now....its a lot cheaper than UK footy which means its a cheap easy sunday, well apart from the booze! It has been pretty much work, pub recently and they don't do anything to discourage it....friday afternoons consist of having a beer while trying to finish the weeks work..prob why I wonder what I'm doing on monday! No fosters though and...take a deep breathe....everyone drinks half pints here - unbelievable! I was walking through a pub with a glass of wine at weekend and thought, if this was back in blackburn would I make it to the other side of the pub without abuse?! No! The hamster dance has not yet made an appearance as I don't feel the audience is quite ready although I feel I cannot keep it locked away for much longer! Glad Lorraine and your good self are ok and keeping the blackburn workforce strong! Take care mate
Response: Glad to hear Suzannes ok, I'll email her this week....im sure she'll be having the time of her life! The jobs going well and certainly helping the bank balance, the works not too bad either which is a bonus! Hope you get a little bit of sun this summer as im guessing you've had plenty of rain! Take care xxx
Response: Congrats on passing your exams - very happy for you! Actually, do you ever fail any - since I've known you all you do is pass, pass pass?! ;) And when I return I guess you'll be a driven business women on super bucks and look down on peasent traveling folk like myself while you drive on by in your porshe! Ha Ha! Hope you enjoyed Ibiza xxx
Response: Well Poo Pants, perhaps that is because you are an embarrasing situation and smell quit bad? I've seen the pictures and loved all the captions...you obviously had lots of time on your hands at work! Have seen your flyer for this month too....who designs these - very nice yes?!
Response: And........am I a winner?
Response: Hello mrs turnbull, how is your good self and your pint guseling, pork scratchin eating man? Good I hope having had a little of the Cyprus sunshine...is michael looking a shade lighter than frank bruno? I would love to say its beautiful and sunny here at the moment but its not, quite cold and a little wet unfortunatly but this (so i've been told) is the worst part of the year. Not sure how long I'll be here exactly but I definatly hope to visit Perth sometime next year! Take care xxx Ps. get lazy michael to send me a mail!

Response: Hello Jonny Vulgar, you certainly live up to your title! Sounds like I'm not missing out too much on summer back home...sunny balckburn always lives up to its reputation! How many speeding tickets has you and your new wheels picked up now..you still legally driving?! I'm sure its a nice ride but it'll never be a match for the Escort with frying pan accessory...not every driver can cook up a storm on the way to work! Congrats with the exams mate, soon you'll have your own company and be able to take over the world but you need to see some before then so I recommend a bit of travel before then, seriously mate best thing you'll do! Thanks for the scare stories about the outback gimps but I'm sure i'll handle it - you've been watching too many movies. I have now updated the blog too as you can probably see so stop complaining and get back to work! Mwah!
Response: Yeah Laos was an incredible place, I'm sure there's not many countries on earth quite as chilled and picturesque. From all accounts Suzanne will love Malaysia...the trekking and wildlife there is supposed to be amazing. Enjoying being in Oz so far but still need to get used to the chilly weather but I'm not complaining...it'll be barbies on the beach before I know it! Take care xxx
Response: Just read your mail, thanks...bet your really looking forward to Ibiza, Mambo's on a friday night with tongi was always my fav warm up spot! No more revision for a while either, good luck with the results...sure you'll get them though! One step closer to being an accountant...its what dreams are made of! Enjoy your holiday sparkle xxx
