It's been a while since my last entry. I've been busy working as a contractor at CASA since my security clearance came through. Unfortunately I started on a monthly pay run so getting my first pay cheque come through this weekend was very good news.

Last weekend I spent in Newcastle, north of Sydney for Sharons (my landlady) sisters 40th birthday. The party was good fun, the lack of sleep, not so good. I think the music was turned off at around 5am when I got 1 hours sleep before getting woken up again!

This weekend I went skiing for the weekend in the Snowy Mountains which was amazing fun. A nice chap Josh I met at work goes down to ski every weekend in the season and offered to take me. We went cross country on an unpaved road amongst lots of kangaroos and wallabys to the town of Adaminaby where we stayed at a great Aussie pub for the night. We enjoyed many a beer while playing pool with the locals and enjoying a fantastic fresh trout dinner. The conditions were bad on the first day as it rained a lot but that didn't stop us making the most of the day. The next day conditions were perfect and I hurtled down the runs as fast as I could! It was really beautiful skiing through the scenery of gum trees.

On the way back we stopped at Tantagara resevoir and a number of other places, The scenery out here in the Australian countryside is spectacular. Not long now until Catherine joins me in Australia. I can't wait!
