Michael’s Travel Diary

Location: Cowes, England

MapHey Guys,

Honestly, not a whole heap to write about, hence the utter lack of updates! So in the last couple of weeks since I got back from Poland, I have simply been working flat, much like before I left for Poland! Hahaha.

Work has been keeping me busy, and the next big dealine is Tuesday, so 1 week away. That means 1 thing for sure - I will be working this Sunday, about 6th weekend in a row, aside from the trip to Krakow. Plus there is all of the weekday overtime. It is getting to the point that I just want to do an 8 hour day and be done with it!

The football team is also starting to take up a heap more time again. Training has been most Saturday's and the club administrations is taking a heap of time too. But we finallyahve a bank account open - no money in there yet though!

I have also booked a trip to Amsterdam for Queen's Day, the national holiday honoring the Queen (but date is still based on the birthday of a Queen 3 generations ago). This is a true whirlwind trip, flying out after work on the Tuesday night and am flying back on the Thursday morning - I have a been there and seen that attitude towards Amsterdam, but I do love big events, so will try this one which is supposed to be huge - where did I put all my orange clothes?!?!

Aside from that, I have been keeping a low prfoile on weekends, trying to save money and brain cells! Oh, and the fact that both weekend mornings are tied up with either football training for dragging my butt to work, means that I don't relally feel like getting trollied no more.

Final thing on the list of updates is that I am atually house sitting this week. Jon from work, who has been working out of the Weston office, has taken his family up there with him for the week and I have been staying in his place to look after the cats. That was an intersting converstaion at 830 am on Sunday.
Jon: "Mike, do you like cats?"
Me: "Huh? *wipe sleep from eyes* No"
Jon: "What if I threw in the Wii and Cable TV?"
Me: "Huh?"
Jon: "We're all off to Weston at 11 am today for the week - do you want to house sit?"
Me: "Huh? Ok..."
So yeah, I have two cats shadowing my every room around the house now.... and the Wii is bloody addictive.

Anyway, hope you are all well...

Speak again soon - next trip is the big one to Lithuania/Latvia/Estonia in under 4 weeks now.

Cheers guys,
