The 5 of us who travelled down the East coast together decided to try and get a house to live in Coogee over the festive period. We found a 2 bedroomed appartment for rent which worked out at 10 quid each for 14 days. When we arrived there we were all chuffed to find out that we had a balcony, patio area including bbq and a grand piano which proved very useful on drunken nights! We arrived on the 22nd December and had the house til 5th January. What ensued was a monster xmas shop and the result was overflowing cupboards, fridge and freezer. A few beers were purchased too.

Sarah found them, gave them to me and on Xmas day, i wore them for the duration, along with an Australian flag wrapped around my that i brought in Brisbane for a few quid. Rewind to August when we were on our boat trip around Halong bay. Attached to the side of the boat we were on was a pair of speedo pants style swimming trunks, light blue in colour and would fit the average vietnamese man. Getting back to xmas day, i was wearing the trunks with the flag wrapped around my neck with a glass of champayne in my hand running round our house we'd been lucky enough to hire over the festive period self named Captain Australia! Luckily, housemates had had at least 7 weeks to get to know me, but for the random visitors we had throughout the day, the sight was still a bit of a shock! (i do have photos but will not put any on this sight!) Suffice to say, i wore the costume all day long, didn't leave the house and rarely was there not a beer in my hand! Marvelous!

After a fried breakfast with compulsary beers accompanying it set the standard for the day. After i wiped egg yoke on the curtains we opened our presents - the house mates doing a secret santa and sarah and i obviously exchanging gifts. The gifts were exchanged in the room that Guy Rob amd I titled 'the gentlemans room' - this room was at the rear of the house, was home to a 2-seater settee and a music system. It opened out onto the balcony which could hold 6-8 people and had 2 wooded seats and a table with a fantastic view across Sydney. Usually the gentlemen of the house engaged in conversations with topics that women would not understand. Women were not normally allowed in 'our' room apart from replacing empty beer cans with full ones, but on Xmas we made an exception.

The girls cooked a great xmas dinner, not comparable to my nans though but it was good. So, we spent the day just loafing, watching TV, stuffing ourselves with whatever food we could lay our hands on and comsuming alcohol. We all passed oout at about 1am!
