What I did
A whole lotta nothing

For those of you still with us, we apologize for the hiatus in updating the blog, unfortunately the lack of action of in our lives has forced a lack of inspiration to write; i can't simply blog on.

However, i did realize that i completely forgot to update the outcome of the "Basile saga". Long story short, James and i were kindly asked to leave and we are now working in the northern Yukon Oilfields for $50 an hour, its rough work but apparently they give great payouts for injured employees; best case scenario, James loses an arm and we start our American road trip 3 months prematurely.

But seriously, It has come to my realisation that i never updated the blog on the outcome of the actual "Basile saga"; i assure you it's a cliffhanger. Long story short we had an entire day wasted on a 10 minute meeting with our "forgetful" housekeeping manager who told us to keep the house clean...and no more squatters.

Unfortunately thats it to the Basile saga, he left on wednesday night and James and i now have free accomdation in France for years to come.

Jono arrives on the 8th with Helen so we are excited about that, if only we could put them up in our spacious abode, I can't imagine they would appreciate sleeping on 5th hand couches.

We have both invested in helmet cameras in the past few days, so we look forward to posting the point of view footage we have accquired in the last few days

Mum and nicola on

Glad to hear you are still alive. Still raining here, lots of floods. Cricket odi finals, one each. Been great games. Decider on Thursday.
Geelong play Richmond this weekend. Collingwood lost to Melbourne - go demons. Love to you both.

Nick on

In case your mum 'forgot' to update you on the footy results, Richmond smashed Geelong by 59 points. Kicked the first 10 goals of the game, took the Cats until 16 minutes into the 2nd quarter to register a major. Riewolt kicked 4, Dusty got 25-odd possessions and kicked 2 goals and a supergoal, and Podsiadly was hopeless.

We're up to 40,000 members, on track to hit the 50k target. Also I'll give you a link soon where you can download full games for free for when you're homesick :P
