Decided that I should probably make the effort to attend an event with one of the singles groups that I had joined weeks ago. Wasn't all that enthusiastic but donned the glad rags, curled my hair put on my smiley face and jumped the bus to the town. Not a yellow bus either! It was cocktails at a lovely bar in George Street and there were already quite a few people partaking in pretty coloured drinks in fancy glasses. I on the other hand walked in and realised I could hardly hear myself think and wondered how on earth I was going to meet anyone in such an environment. Not wanting to waste a trip I ordered myself a drink, introduced myself to a few people and attempted a conversation
Saturday and Sunday were spent in the classroom doing part one of my ESL course. Two 10 hour days! Talk about taxing the brain. It has not had to work that hard in 6 months. I have now passed that and its on to the 100 hours online that needs to be completed to get the full qualification enabling me to teach overseas.
The week following was spent looking into a job offer, making decisions about what I really want to do and where. A day trip to Glasgow was called for but unfortunately it was a dreich day so sorry no photos guys! Also went to a very pretty town named Largs which was on the seaside and so picturesque so have put that on my list of places to return to on a sunny day. Although I did climb up a huge hill overlooking the town to see the view and even in the rain it was gorgeous.
Attended a family 18th birthday which was lovely, its comforting to note that my family here are just as noisy as my family in Oz and just as mad.
My lovely Irish friend Donach returned to Oz, so far away.
I have also been on a road trip (yes Mrs Day a road trip!) from Edinburgh to Bournemouth then on to Cardiff, Manchester, Stoke on Trent and back to Edinburgh. It was a business/pleasure trip but quite tiring as we covered so many miles in 4 days
I am flying to Prague on Monday morning for 4 days. Time to spend with Fiona, Lee, Callum, Cameron, Margot and Alan. Very excited and so looking forward to seeing some Oz family.
Tomorrow I am going to Perth so hopefully it will be fine and I will get some pics to add to my next blog. Adam has headed of to England for a week followed by Spain and Croatia. We will cross paths again sometime soon.
Well that is it from me so in closing - Understand that you own nothing, everything that surrounds you is temporary, only the love in your heart will last forever.
