Hi Deb,

Got message from Laura this mornings. She is feeling much better. Antibiotics are beginning to kick in! She's really looking forward to seeing you! Have a wonderful time in the USA. (Which when it comes to you goes without saying!) Give my love to all at home. Even though I love it here I'd love to be popping in to say hello!

Take care and God Bless

Hi Jenny,

Hows times with you? Thats good to hear Laura is feeling better. Having a lovely time here in a lovely, hot Figi. Going on a cruise to one of the islands tomorrow. I was sunbathing today. My last chance to catch a few rays before I'm homeward bound. Imagine I got 10 bad mosquito bites last night. Typical I haven't had a bite in 6 and a half months and I get one now(they had feasting on you or Camilla so they missed me!) and I'll be going home with marks on my leg.Its only one they attacked too and I'm not complaining! Hopefully the tan will cover them
Talk to you soon missus!
Take care,
luv Deb

Hi Deb
Looks like you are having a ball.
Photos are fab looks alot warmer there than here.
keep the good work with the photos
Take care xx
Well Thompson,
How are you my dear? You can only imagine how hot it is!The humidity is the killer. We're a bit like Christy Moore since we got to Cairns.Heading out sunbathing now, our last 2 days so we're as well to make the most of it.Ye I heard it very cold at home. It would be nice to dip into a bit of cold for a few minutes to cool down, only a few minutes mind you. Talk to you soon,

Hi Deb
Hope you're well. Judging by the photos im guessing you are!!! They're class! How will you ever settle for the nite life in Belmullet after Sydney? Will you bring a few of those nice tanned Oz men home with you? Have a great Christmas.
Take Care

Hi Richella!
Great hearing from you. O I know I'm having a mighty time.. my poor will be in an awful condition when I get home! Having taking very nicely to champagne out here and I've acquired a taste for wine.. mad into out here so as they say when in Rome.... Will have to put the pics up yet from Sydney. Had a ball while I was there, staying in Coogee going to PJ'S and all the other hot spots there. Have a great Christmas & yourself and Thompson better create some scandal for me.

See you in the New Year,
luv Deb
From Jenny - Tuesday, 21st February 2006, 02:30 (GMT)
Hi Deb,

I got your texts. Great to hear that you are so well. When am I going to get to see some photos? I am checking everyday. Has dinky di camera stopped working?

Love and God Bless

Your the bad thing picking on my lovely camera! Dinky Di got a little wet last week when I was climbing Franz Joseph but she's tough like her owner and she's bounced back! she may be ancient but not many cameras would bounce back after the soaking she got. I promise I'll put more photos up,I'm gone wicked lazy!More will be coming in the next few days!
Talk to you soon,

Talk to you soon
le grá sheila.
Hey Young Thompson,
I hope your not working too hard. No doubt you're getting yourself ready for the party season ahead more so than your exams, no better woman!
Here we are in Adelaide after the great day we had at the wedding yesterday. Feeling a little sensitive today. Weather here has more in common with the Irish weather (lovely one minute, pouring the next). a far cry from the heat in hot tropical Cairns. Still having a mighty time. Caught up with Jenny at the wedding, she's in mighty form. By the way congrats on winning the league, Breege text me in the early hours of the morning telling me.
Talk to you soon,
love Deb

See ye soon,
From Camilla - Wednesday, 7th December 2005, 20:51 (GMT)
Hello me old travelling buddy,

Arrived in NZ safe and sound, was great to see my Brother. The kids came and woke me up at 6 this morning, they wanted me to go to school with them, didn't really fancy doing PE today! It's a bit colder here about 25c, bit worried about the tan.
Missing me travelling buddy! Really hope we can catch up in NZ.
Take care
Love Camilla x
Camilla my dear,

From Rhona - Friday, 9th December 2005, 03:44 (GMT)
Hey Debbie,
Great to see you are still having a ball. how are the margaritas treating you? U didnt run into the Oz army guys we met in HCMC?? The pics are great, am so jealous of the tan...mine is gone. In NY heading home sat. So its all over now but just for a little while!!
Travel safe.
Rhona xx
Well Rhona,
Great to hear from you!Still having a great time. Back in Sydney for the next couple of days..Had a brilliant time going up the coast.We did a little work alright on the tans. I'm not on the good ole margaritas anymore, they are a little too expensive for a backpacker like myself! some night I'm going to splash out though.It has to be done! No, we didn't meet the nice army boys and I was even in Townsvile but still no sign.Fair play, you've had a great trip. I bet you can't believe its coming to an end.I bet they are all excited at home. You'll have to knock Tullamore dead when you get back!Tell everyone I said hi.Enjoy the rest of your trip and have a great xmas.
Safe journey home,
Debbie x

From Gráinne - Friday, 9th December 2005, 12:05 (GMT)
Hi Deb's,
Just seen the photo's from the wedding, girl your looking absolutely fabolous, be careful we don't want an aussie boy sweeping you off your feet and keeping you in Oz. Was up visiting mog and thompson last night on way home from dundalk they're in great form. Tell kathy i said hi. Keep up the good work with the pic's and captions really look forward to seeing what you're getting up to.
Be good,
Love Gráinne
Hey Mac!

Hows d craic?! Forgot to tell I've met the man of my dreams and I'm not coming must come to the wedding in the new year! Not a chance! I'm into the Aussie surfer look at all,they all have long hair that makes them look like Albert Einstein! Heading to a big Irish pub to night in Sydney.. I'll stick to my own!Ye Mog told me you were up alright and that your looking as good as ever.Kathy's in gre you said hello. Grainne you know me.... I'm always good.
Bi go maith,
Deb x
From Caroline Mc - Monday, 12th December 2005, 12:17 (GMT)
Hi Deb's
God your making me more and more jealous by the minute looking at all your fab pics, good thinking getting a website set up, sicken everyone at home. All good here, ready for the festive season, cant wait noe for the break off work. It'll be good and no doubt I'll spend the xmas parting, eating, drinking and sleeping, that'll be about it. How long have you left in Oz, it seems like you have been gone for ages, bet time is flying, When you heading to NZ, you'll love it there and the fellas are much nicer than the Aussie men, you'll see what I mean when you get there. I cried leaving NZ, felt like a second home! Well have a great xmas, any plans yet? Will you be having the turkey on bondi. We spent ours there but there was more drinking done than eating turkey. Think we managed a few turkey sandwiches with the BBQ, had to be done! Well have a great one what ever you get up too and party on for the new year. Take Care, keep the pics coming, lovin them,
Chat soon,
Caz x
Hiya Caz,
Glad to see your getting yourself ready for the sessions you'll be having in Belmullet.Has to be done.Christmas wouldn't be the same without them. The parties & barbies are in full swing out here.Myself and Jenny are heading up to her family for Christmas and we'll be spending the New Year in Brisbane and then driving down the coast to Sydney.We'll be like Thelma & Louise on our road trip! I can't believe how fast the time is going.. i'm gone over 4 months now. I've about 5 weeks left in Oz before I move on to NZ. Ye everyone tells me I'll prefer NZ and all it has to offer, I'll have to check that out for myself!Have a great Christmas, enjjoy the partying and I'll see you in the New Year,
luv Deb x

Hiya Deb,
it's cool that you've set up your own site, just saw it for the 1st time tonight! Looks like you are having a great time you lucky thing! Myself & david should be moving into our new house after Christmas can't wait so you'll have to come round for some welcome home drinks if you decide to leave the sun behind at all! (I'd say it would be difficult) Keep the news & the photos coming
Anne C.
Hello Anne,
Well how are you? Mog wa stelling me alright yourself and David bought a house. Congrats to you both. I kept meaning to text you. Its hard to believe its coming up to Christmas..Its 38 degrees today out here, a far cry from the weather back home. I'll definitely have to call around to see the house when I get back and we'll have a few drinkeens! Best of luck with your new home together, have a great Christmas and I'll see you in the New Year,

Mickey and Kathlene said you look well in the photos. They like your dress you wore at the wedding. Its girls night out tonight 30th Dec (Kathlene, Jenny, Mary o'Riordan, Anne Marie etc.) Heading for the big city of Belmullet . Just in case you are homesick, it's been pissing cats and donkeys over here!
Hi folks,

Happy New Year to you all.. Not a chance I'd be homesick, having too much of a good time. Weather is a scorcher out here,heading for the pool shortly. I'll be thinking of you all in the cold & rain in Belmullet!!We're heading into Brisbane to night for New Year's Eve. Enjoy your night. All the best for 2006,
Take care,
From Michael - Tuesday, 3rd January 2006, 17:45 (GMT)
Hi Debbie & Jenny,

Glad to see you are still both having a great time. I hope you enjoyed the Christmas and seeing in the new year on the other side of the world? I have still been enjoying the time out life style having been in Ireland working on the house until a few days before the Christmas. I am now back in London planning my first bit of work since Apr 05 - oh no! Anyway continue to have a great time.

Le Gra,

Wee Michael
How are you my ole friend! Fair play that you've still kept up with the life style you got used to while travelling i.e chilling and not doing any real work! I took a leaf out of your book and have pretty much done the same!Had a great Christmas and New Year in Brisbane with Jenny's family. It was strange being out here for Christmas in this heat. Best of luck with the job and everything else London has to offer.
Slan for now,
