I'm still here in Darwin although I should be moving on again very soon. We will definitely be going to Melville Island to work for a few weeks (3-4) and probably as soon as Saturday. We were going through a recruitment agency in town (Grunt) but they keep faffing us around and changing the date all the time. They also want us to spend $250 on a uniform and stuff we don't need. So we went straight to the source and phoned the boss who employs people for Melville again and he said we can go out on Saturday and start that day! Far better but we are still going to see Grunt today as they want us to come in for a chat. Always good to hedge you bets as if one falls through we've always got the other.

So what else have I been up to since the last entry? Well, pretty much nothing. We went out again on Monday, drank loads as usual, and got a phone call asking if we could work at the barracks again cleaning. We were a state but decided we may as well so jumped in the car and headed off to work. Literally 10 metres from the entrance we both thought, "what are we doing?", laughed, turned around and went back to the hostel. No need to do anymore cleaning work when we will be making loads of money next week. So I sat around the pool for the rest of the day instead.

Still trying to sell the car but I don't hold out much hope. Only a couple of people have had a look and they only want to pay ridiculously small amounts for it. Either way if we haven't off loaded it by tomorrow then we will take any offer we receive.

But that's about it news wise. Darwin is so much fun......
