Hiya from Urunga.. Well we moved into our new house on SUnday night was very nice and very quiet. We didn't have any TV's so that meant we had to talk to each other... Then when we all went to bed we have got no curtains or blinds and trust it was full moon as well. So the light shone in all night. Mum and Dads room was like there was a lanp on. As we live on the beach now dad could hear this hushing noise and couldn't discover what it was.. When it was the waves crashing so funny.
Last night we all stayed in Urunga as mum and dad had a xmas party in Bello. It was nice to have TV and Blinds a bit of a sleep in from the day before when we were all up before 6am. For those who are overseas and feeling cold well it is a warm 30 today. Nice and enjoyable i have hada swim at the pool where we have moved in.
Spoke to Adam today and he is at Windsor Castle when i spoke to him. He had just had a sleep on the queens lounge... Only Adam could get away with that. The queen was having dinner with 800 of her mates.
Well hope everyone is well.
Take Care and Talk soon Love Jack xoxo

Hi all,. well here i am back to where the river meets the sea. Pretty excited but also very sad to have left all my new and old mates overseas and Adam of course. But hopefully he will be home in March. Well just being helping mum and dad get ready for the move which is also very exciting.
The flight home was a night mare 44 hours it took me.
Going to the carols by candle light tonight in Urunga which is laways a bit of a laugh and great fire works.
Will write more in the coming days. Just hope everyone is well. I am going to try and keep writing on this while i am home as it is only a stop over till i go again in May to Canada. As i started my work visa when i when through customs on Tuesday.
Merry Xmas to everyone and Take Care
Hi well what a day i had yesterday Jenna and myself went into town (Baker Street) and hung out with all the celebs at the wax museum. Man it was awesome but also they have this live chamber with real serial killers and things. Of course they are actors but man it was the scariest thing i have ever done or seen. They reakon children under 12 aren't allowed in there. I think children under 30 shouldn't be allowed to be in there.
Hope you like all the pics that i have added today. I am going to meet Ginger for lunch today as it is the last time that i can do that for a while...
Adam is head porter today for a job just near Tower Bridge so that is exciting for him. He is working most of the weeked but has tonight and sunday off which is good seen as thought i won't be seing him for a few months.
Well better fly got to take my flat mates car to the drs. Lots of hugs and kisses for everyone

Well not much to report from here trying to tidy and get organised to move onto my next destination. I am going to do a bit of xmas shopping today to send home. There are some good sales and things on in and around london...
I am going into Oxford Street today to meet up with one of my mates this afternoon. Not a very nice afternoon very overcast and wet. Adams cousin Ronnie, is coming to London on the weekend so we are going to meet up with her so that should be good fun.
Well thats about it from cold out London Town and its only going to get colder in Canada.
Love You All
Well just a quick one to say hi now that we have the computer back in the house which is cool. Went into Oxford Circus today and met up with Daniel for lunch and he shouted!!! Adam is working late tonight he is at the Natural History Museum serving Prince Charles. He boys that packed the truck had to squash it all in to fit. So Adam just rang and said the Prince Charles may be eating some squashed food. I couldn't stop laughing...
It is pretty cold here tonight just going to have some dinner and snuggle into bed.
Well love to everyone
Forgot to say check out the new pics. You will love them...

How is everyone going well gto a week to fill you in on all the goss. Well theres not that much. Got back from the poms last Saturday night which was cool as Adam picked me up form Bolton and then we drove back in his work van. When we got back to his work they had put on a bbq and drinks for all the boys as they did over 100 hours in 5 days for the Porsche launch...
So we stayed there for a few hours and that was good.
Monday Adam and i had the day together as he had the day off and then we went to see 'We will rock you' man it was aweseome one of the best musicals i have seen. Then during the week just hung around visting people and having a final look around town. Thursday morning adam and ash had to go to Scotland Edinburgh then to Bolton near Manchester to pick up the left over grog and i thought well i might as well go for the drive so i spent about 20 hours in the van with the boys but was good to get out of London for another night and we saw the Edinburgh castle which was awesome. the country side was great as we went up there on the east coast road and then came back on the west coast road. Saturday the girls all went ice skating to somerset house just near waterloo which was awesome except it was saturday morning and there were kids everywhere falling over every which way and how.. Was extreme.
Then on Saturday night had The Farewell party and Adams birthday it was great lots of people. Dover, Shane, Lorraine, Clara, Ginger and heaps of other mates we have meet along the way turned up so that was a big night or should i say an early morning. Sunday didn't result to much i did alot of sleeping and eating.
Tonight we are going out to Mexican for dinner for adams birthday which should be nice. Well hope everyone is well and taking care.
Leaving London next Monday for Canada...
Love Jack and Adam

Hi Yah, Everyone... Whats news. Well i am up with the Poms been up here since last Tuesday and was supposed to go back last night, but it is way to good up here to be leaving and heading back to London.
Last week didn't do that much went and had a look around a near by place called Stockport which was good got a couple of tops there. Then on Thursday night Liam and i went out in Manchester that was good very different to London and a lot cheaper to drink. Friday was a day at home not much happened. Saturday Aunty Mary, Heather and i went into Manchester and tried to do some Christmas shopping but the place was mad. These english people go mad for xmas i thought we were bad at home but they run rings around us. Thats for sure.
So bottom line was didn't get any presents to send home for xmas.
Over the weekend it was so cold got down to -3 and -4 degrees over night. The Jack Frost has been so bad a couple of cms deep. Very icee.
Saturday night John, Heather and i went out and had a couple at drinks one drink was at one of the oldest pubs it dates back to the 1700's it was pretty cool. Then went to another one which had karaoke that was funny watching the oldies singing then went to there local which is called the crown and cushion. The old guys were giving me stick about being from Aussie and was i off Neighbours. They thought it was so funny.
Adam is good he is up here is the neighbourhood for the launch of the new Porsche... They go to all different places during the week seting up and waiting till they party with the lauch and then pack it all away to move to the next place. Prob won't see him till the weekend as they work around the clock.
Well thats about all from me, Will head back to London at the end of the week to do some sightseeing before heading off to Canada in Decemeber.
Well look forward to hearing form everyone. Lots of love Jack xoxo
hey guys had agreat weekend except for that fact that the Aussies lost against the bloody poms. We went to the walkabout and watched it. For those that don't know its an Aussie Kiwi pub that was full of Poms so i wasn't that happy with them being there at the end of the game.
It was only 3 degrees this morning man i will be looking for to warm weather when i finish up here.
Take Care love Jack xoxo

Hi all ADAM speaking. Had a mad time in Wales with Shane and the boys. The game was great and the atmosphere unreal. We kicked on at the pub afterwards and missed the bus back to London which was a good laugh at the time. Luckily we found some welsh hospitality and slept on a couch for the night. Made it back to London at 6 on sun . Jackie was not very impressed but a hell of a weekend anyway.

Hey Everyone how are you? Well all is well over here now starting to get very cold and without the heating everyone in th ehouse is starting to get sick which isn't very nice. Having 13 people living there at the moment is a bit silly there are people sleeping everywhere.
Going to watch the rugby tomorrow for goodness sake i hope that we bet the poms other wise i will never here the end of it over here.
Well just a quick one to let you know that all is going well. Today is my last day of work. Lotso love xoxoxo
I just put the photos of Oxford on here, hope you all like them we couldn't go inside many of the buildings as there was a cermony happening which was pretty cool, seeing all these oxford studnets walking around in there graduation costumes. xoxoxo
Hey all, Had a great weekend up in Oxford was awesome the Uni is amazing. Ging or better known now as Hinge and i went up there we were there for about 6 hours we walked around for a while till it started to rain then we thought we better go and watch the rugby and have some lunch.
Came back to London and hung out in Shepherds Bush which was good for something different hadn't been there for a while. I won't be emailing and writing on here that much any more as my flat mate has taken the computer away unitl we all learn how to use it properly. And respect it more. Which is a shame as it is always the same people that ruin it for you.
Adam went to wales to watch the rugby and with 70000 people there ran into his family his aunty and uncle. He had a great time down there saw a bit of the country side.
My job finishes on Friday so i am going to go up and see the Poms for a week i think as i has so much fun up there last time and they made me feel so welcomed like my own home. And i bet they have a warm house as our boiler has blown up and the land lord won't fix it well actually now of us can get in contact with him. Which makes it hard. It is about 2 degrees here over night at the moment. A joke actually.
Hope everyone is well and having fun take care
Miss you all heaps

Hi all, well what a busy week i have had well for me it has been flat out like a tac. Started work all last week at 12.30 so had to leave home 2 hours before starting as over here during the day they have this thing fixing train lines and cancelling trains during the day. So trust it always happening to me. Then on the weekend it was pretty fun, one of adams school friends (yes another one over here) Gusty came down from up north and had the friday night with us. We just stayed in and had a few drink with him and our flat mates. Saturday night went to the local pub at the end of our street The Bishop had a meal and a few drinks which was nice as the weather outside was appauling. Sunday was a great day to spent in bed Adam and i went out and had breakfast and then due to the rain and wind we watching DVDs all day. Monday i put in a full day with the hcildren 8am-6pm as it was Haloween over here and it is really big even the parents get dressed up. SO i took the children out trick or treating it was actually a lot if fun. The loved it and it was amazing how generous the people were when we knocked at there doors. Today school has gone back to normal so don't start work till 3 i am doing the house chores today catching up on washing and room cleaning. We have got so many extra people staying with us at the moment that the house is a mess and its amazing we have a dish washer but the amount of people that don't know how to put there plates in the dish washer. Well thats enough from over here hope all is well. Lots of love jack xoxoxo
Hi Guys, what a day i had yesterday, 2 hours to get to work and an hour and a half home. Can't wait till i can get back in my little laser and drive when i want. The trains had all sorts of problems. Well hope all is well just a little note to say hi and say that we are well. Lots of Love xoxo

Good Morning to everyone, how are you all? Well all is good over here. Start work at 12 this week as it is half term so that keeps me busy and i am not sitting around as much and being so board. Had a great weekend was pretty mad, Adam had 7 of his school friends in one place at one time so it was just like a little school reunion for him. There was Ferry, Matt Burke, Dover, Friel, Jake, Simon Oliver and Adam so they had a fun time hanging out. We hung out in Shepherds Bush for ages then went into central London have got some great photos will down load them tomorrow. Sunday was a bit of a wasted day the weather was terrible so it didn't really want you to get out of bed and do very much except eat. We have changed our flights at this stage to leave London on the 22nd Dec to Frankfurt and then go around Europe and then on the 11th Jan 06. Head to Vancouver which should be pretty cool actually i am excited about that as it will be a change and something different as i have never been there.
I am now waiting to here back from the court house about my bond money should be hearing back within the next 1 or 2. So fingers crossed i get it back. Can't see why we wouldn't as it is mine and i am in the right. Take care and lotsof love jack xoxoxo

Morning All, how is everyone going? Things are ok over here in this big bad world. I have been enjoying going back to work which is nice the kids were very happy to see me, although everything i had taught them has gone out the window so it is like starting from square one again. Bit of a challenge but keeps me on my toes. It was a very cold day yesterday i quiet a few layers on for sure plus my gloves and scarf. I still have my black gloves from boaring school, they seem to let a little bit of air throught the games in the wool. So i think i may have to up grade them. Ging came over for dinner last night which was nice to see her as i hadn't seen her for about 5 weeks. I showed her all the things from the baby shower and all the photos. We are probably going out to Shepherds Bush this weekend for Jakes birthday but we are trying to find something fun to do. We thought of golf but i don't think the weather is going to be that good. There is a sport arcade in southbank so that is another option. We will just wait and see what the decision is on Friday night or even Saturday. Yesterday Mel and i scrubbed our house from top to toe. It was so gross when i got back as lots of my flat mates are not to sure where the cleaning products are or even how to use them. So that took alot of hours.
We are trying to work out where we want to spend xmas and new year this year. At this stage we may do our own tour of Europe with a rail pass for 22 days then head to Vancouver, but could be home before you know it as i have only had 4 days of the cold and its already doing my head in. I just don't know how people live here winter after winter.
Hope everyone is ok and having fun. lots of love xoxoxooxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxo- xooxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxooxox
miss you all.

Slept really well till about 2ish then some of my flat mates were having beers so i got up and talked to them for a bit and went back to bed about 4. Yesterday Adam and i went into town we went and ad a nice lunch then walked through convent garden and down to the strand then caught the bus to Oxfod Street had a bit of a walk around and was home by about 4. Back asleep by 7 and now been awake since 2.30am its now 5.30am Monday morning and i ahev just had something to eat and now waiting for my day to start.
