Where I stayed
What I did
Mum and dad have arrived! We picked them up from the airport yesterday at lunch time.
We were not really feeling the best as we had a few to many drinks the night before.
We ended up partying with our room mates and the neighbors across the road.
The store at the end of the road must have made some money on Friday night because we were there every hour buying bottles of vodka. We played drinking games and it was a big night.
Anyway it was great to see mum and dad. We showed them around the university and they
wanted to know where the pool was so they could do laps
Jordan went to the farmers market and bought 2 x lobsters (still alive), fresh eggs and vegetables. My parents came over and we gave them the grand tour of the pad. Jordan cooked up a storm (again- should be on master chef). He made a crayfish curry with rice and we all sat out the front and ate. The lobster was difficult to prepare as we did not have a pan that was big enough to cook 2. So the lobsters had to be cooked in 2 separate pots. It was a nice night and lovely to have some Australia's to talk to.
Today we played mum and dad in tennis. It's a lovely, sunny day and now we are off to the pub for some drinks and lunch. I did not make it to the dressage meet (as they needed me there at 4:00am). I said that I was not able to make it and I will go to the next one instead.
