Work takes priority over Neville

... who I was going to be working with for the day. Evil Thomas was on URGHHHH and another gawky Irish guy who I'll name Dougal. He is ever so sweet but very timid and his lisp doesn't do him any favours. Again I was the only girl on. The first half went by fairly fast but the second went so slow. The Polish lad and Argentinian also joins later on. The Argentinian one really doesn't get the job. There's two hydro slides and one of them is a fast one which has a height ...

Another long assssss day

... two days, waking up at 4:30 isn't actually as bad as it sounds. I prefer it because once I'm up I've got more time in the day. Time is money and money is power and power is fabulous.

It turned out that I'd confused myself and had a proper blonde moment and done 10 of each twice, then 8 of each twice! It's because it was written out all funny on the bored and I just didn't obviously listen. Never mind, I did more than everyone else. Dais had made me a delicious five bean chilli and wraps for dinner with beetroot and tomato. We are just fabulous! Ero Tergum ...

Wanaka and Glenorchy

A travel blog entry by lilianbrett


... ask Matt. I think this worry may have been a slight over exaggeration as once we got to the start of the track (helped by two men who took pity on us and gave us a lift to the start) there were Nissan micros and corollas in the walk car park. Oaps sorry Amy. The track was actually pretty tough with a 300m climb to the top which was nice and the walk down was beautiful with views into the valley. After our walk we hitched a lift to our car ...
