Ok, only a week since my last
entry... I'm finding the habit again!
The exciting news of the moment is that tomorrow I'm getting
onto a plane and flying to Auckland. Then I'm flying to
Sydney. Then I'm flying to Thailand. Then I'm flying
to London! Woohoo!
Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about this little event in
my life. This year has been pretty amazing...
Everything was pretty static in my life, and then along comes
Michelle and my world changes. Suddenly, I'm
travelling!! This year, I've left Australia and moved to
New Zealand. I've flown in airplanes; to Auckland and
back, and to Australia and back. Now I'm flying to London
in England, for God's sake!
Michelle is going to be taking me around London to see the
sights. I'll be taking heaps of photos! You might
even see some of them in here pretty soon. I'm going to
Cumbria (I think that's how it's spelt) where her mum is, and
about 8 miles north is Scotland, so I'll be seeing Scotland too!
I'm going to be returning from England on the 5th January (if I
remember correctly...), and will be getting into Sydney on the
7th January. I'll be staying overnight with my friend
Peter. On the 8th, I'm flying to Canberra and spending a
week there, staying with Scot. I'm so excited about
catching up with all my friends there again! On the 13th,
I'm flying back to Sydney, where I'll catch up with Tricia,
staying overnight with Peter again, and then back to Wellington
on the 14th of January. Back to work on the 15th.
I'm going to have an absolute ball over the next three
weeks.... it'll be the longest and best holiday of my
entire life, I'm sure of it!
I'll write some more when I get back... see you then.
In the meantime, have a fantastic Christmas, and a great New
