Diary Entries

Sunday, 06 May 2007

Location: London, UK

Okay I know I have been super slack with my travel page lately - but I will try to make up for it over the next few weeks! So my time in Edinburgh has come to an end and I am now back living in North London, back in the classroom and back earning the big bucks! My older sister Bron is over here now as well and so I have been busy educating her on British ways!! Just got back from 8 days in Turkey for Anzac Tour - was so amazing, words cannot describe, an experience all Aussies should have... check out the photos and will get some more up soon! Take care, see you in August, Lizzy xx

Monday, 19 February 2007

Location: Edinburgh, Scotland

Hey Everybody! Sorry have been so slack with the diary entries, have been having a busy month, new family members, weekends away, and of course the obligatory 9 to 5 job... Kelly and Mic Picone, and Jess McCormack headed up for the weekend just gone, we hired a car and headed out to Stirling to check out the William Wallace Monument and St Andrews uni (where Prince William went) and the golf course much to Mick's delight! Back at work today, not much planned for this weekend, work drinks should be good and then off to Liverpool for the Magical Mystery Beatles Tour and hopefully a football/soccer match! Will keep you all posted, hope you are all fab! Love Lizzy xx

Saturday, 27 January 2007

Location: Edinburgh Internet Cafe, Scotland

Well another diary entry so soon, I know, but Australia Day was doubely awesome for me, not only did we head to the pub to sing a lot of lame Aussie songs (yes Skippy theme tune was among them!) but also my new little niece Laila Dominique Nassif came along 6 weeks early! Unfortunately due to the time difference she was actually born on the 27th but what a suprise! Mum and baby are doing well after an emergency cesarean and Laila will have to spend the next 3 weeks in intensive care until she is 37 weeks but she is going to be okay! I am so excited! And it made my Oz Day that much better but the hangover so much worse with the combined home sickness... Congratulations Lee and Besh! I will be home with Laila in my arms before you and I know it! Love Aunty Liz xx

Friday, 26 January 2007

Location: Scottish Wiwows Bank Atrium, Scotland

Happy Australia Day! It is lunch time here in Edinburgh - I just had a meat pie for lunch (would be un-Australian of me not to!) and Courtney had the vege lasagne (some of the veges were yellow...) and now we have to struggle though the next 2 and a half hours of work before we can head to the Aussie Walkabout Pub this arvo... Will be sure to have a snake bite (half lager, half cider and a dash of blackcurrant cordial) for everyone! Cheers xx

Wednesday, 10 January 2007

Location: Edinburgh, Scotland

Greetings from my new work place - Scottish Widows Bank! Courtney and I have scored temp jobs in the deposits sector and are busy verifying cheques and sorting mail! We are almost on the minimum wage (just above!) but it makes for a nice change from 30 pyscho children each new day!! Hope everyone is settling in well to the new year, Happy Birthday to Isla for the 9th! Our house in Edinburgh is awesome! And we are getting our first visitor - Tam - this weekend, we are heading out to check out the local pub scene, should be fun! Take care everyone and I will do my best to get some new photos onto here ASAP! Love Lizzy xx

Tuesday, 02 January 2007

Location: Edinburgh, Scotland

Happy New Year! Well the festive season is over for another a year, had a great time, Scotland is the best but oh so cold.... No snow for christmas but a very heavy frost left out cabin white which was good enough for me! Thanks to everyone who called, text or emailed over the break, great to hear from you all and good to know everyone is doing well in Oz - or wherever you may be! Bad news is our Hogmanay street festival was cancelled at the last minute due to rain and gale force winds, bit of a dissapointment... All of us Aussie orphans have disbanded back to different parts of the UK now and Courtney and I are due to move into out new pad in Edinburgh on the 4th! It is the best place, just the 2 of us! Double beds, own rooms, free washing, TV and DVD and a futon for anyone who wants to stay! Take care xx PS My address is 34/1 Beaverbank Place, Canonmills, Edinburgh EH7 4ET Scotland, if you ever need it....

Wednesday, 20 December 2006

Location: Bayswater, London, UK

This will be my last diary entry from Bayswater - and the year - I head off to Scotland on Thursday. I just wanted to wish everyone the HAPPIEST Christmas and the BEST of New Years! 2006 has been a awesome year, I thought 2005 would be hard to top but the years just keep getting better! Thanks to everyone who has made 2006 so great, especially all of you who have spent time with me in Port Keats, the memories will live on and I look forward to catching up with you at some stage in the future, especially my 2 wingmen and Georgie (when can I expect an email?!)! Catch you all in 2007! Love Always, Lizzy xx

Tuesday, 19 December 2006

Location: Bayswater, London, UK

Just wanted to add a quick entry to say 'Happy Birthday Bronny!' That is all...

Monday, 18 December 2006

Location: Bayswater, UK

Well the final count down to Scotland is on! Spending my last few days in dreary London, although had a fantastic weekend, the sun was shining and it didn't get dark until 4pm! What a novelty! Went open air ice skating on Friday night - amazingly we all managed to stay upright for the whole hour! Then onto the London Eye, Madame Tussaud's Wax Musuem and took in a show 'Moon of the Misbegotten' with Kevin Spacey on Saturday and then a roast Sunday/Christmas lunch on Sunday at Ros' place, another Moree girl, is there no escape from them! Plenty of photos to show, again, will be sure to put them on page before I head off to Scotland on Thursday night! Not long until Santa comes now, hope you are all well, hopefully school holidays have kicked in for all those teachers out there, God knows we need a break from the little terrors...

Thursday, 14 December 2006

Location: Bayswater, London, UK

Well I have finally got around to updating the travel page, have been pretty busy with the travels lately, Italy, Germany (not by choice!) and parts of England - Bath and Stonehenge! All have been great! Thinking of investing in a nomination bracelet, they are these silver bracelets and each link is the flag of a country you have visited, will look into it, plenty more countries to get to though... Only have a little over a week left in London and then it is onto the night bus for the 10 hour trip to Inverness in Scotland for christmas. Spending NY Eve in Edinburgh and then staying on! One way ticket to povertyville no doubt, no job lined up or permanent accomodation as yet, but all that will work itself out I am sure! Hope you are all enjoying December in Australia, my favourite time of the year! Very cold here now - won't be any warmer in Scotland either - heading to outdoor ice skating this weekend and some other last minute London things that we have been putting off for way to long.... Hope you are well! Happy festive season! Love Lizzy xx

Sunday, 10 December 2006

Location: Bayswater, London, UK

Hey Everybody! Can't believe it has been nearly a month since my last diary entry, have been busy doing not much! The daily commute is wearing me down, lucky christmas is just around the corner, can hardly believe it... There is not much daylight at all over here now, get up and walk to work in the dark and then walk home again in the dark, rise at 7, home at 4!!! Totally understand why British people are so grumpy, no sun light to brighten their day.... Have been on a few trips away lately, Venice, Frankfurt (long story) and Bath and Stonehenge, will update my photos this week sometime! Hope everyone is enjoying the silly season! Missing you all and the sunshine! Love Lizzy xx

Monday, 13 November 2006

Location: Bayswater, London, UK

Hey Everybody! Thought I would add a quick journal entry in my lunch break... Am having a bad day, woke up sick this morning and had to head off to school, one tube line was delayed the other closed completely, the joys of the inner London commute! The amount of wine consumed on the weekend may have something to do with the way I am feeling, but I blame the lack of sunshine, need some Vitamin D and stat! Not much else new, hear about Belinda Emmett, so sad, she was so young, she was diagnosed when she was my age, that's a wake up call for sure. Hope you are fantastic in Oz or wherever you may be... Missing summer that's for sure... All my love Lizzy xx

Thursday, 09 November 2006

Location: Paris, France

Ok, ok, I know your not meant to do diary entries so close together but I thought it was only fair to Paris! A city so great deserves as much! I had the greatest time, was extremely cold but well worth it. Took in all the usual sites, the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, Notre Dame and Moulin Rouge. Ate at least 4 baguettes and 1 croissant, was devine! Actually saw one chick walking along the street eating a metre long baguette from the bag, nothing on it just plain, so random! They love their baguettes! Enjoy the snaps...

Monday, 06 November 2006

Location: Bayswater, London, UK

Greetings from London!
So hear is my first diary entry for you, will try my best to keep them regular, thought this would be easier to show you my pictures, that and I am sick of looking like and idiot when my photos don't attach! I blame the internet connection... Hope you are all fabulous and the Aussie summer is treating you well! Starting to get really cold here now, purchased my first pair of gloves on Sunday only to lose one the on Monday, lucky they were cheap!
Take it easy, Love Lizzy xx
