I then knew what was important to me and difficult to replace - my underwater camera case... It also hit me that my insurance documents were in there.. doh! But by checking online I discovered that practically nothing in my bag was insurable... sneaky definition artists! So much for doing the lawyerly thing and checking my stuff against the insurance before I bought it... I guess I was just concerned with the medical cover. However! They redeemed themselves by giving ₤50 a day (for up to 3 days) for everyday that it is lost
Got in and saw the beautiful baby Lakshimi (Naresh and his wife Davina's baby) I stayed for a week and didn't hear a peep from her. So good natured, so I teased them by saying the old adage 'good baby, bad toddler!'.
Went out with my cousin Nisha for her 30th- was messy! Started in the 'Establishment', it's such a meatmarket I just can't begin to describe it. It did have a good atmosphere but we left after a while and did the Sydney bar hopping thing. Had a good night though - met some lovely people... proper Aussies!
What else did I do? I was so lazy I can't remember!! Caught up with more cousins.. didn't really the do tourist stuff as have done it before but another of my cousins, Melissa, showed me around the Sydney Aquarium and Naresh and Davi took me on a Harbour cruise which was pretty relaxed. Also managed a trip up to the Blue Mountains too - gorgeous place, have been there before to see the 'Three Sisters' famous for the Aboriginal myth which surrounds them
Christmas was a little peculiar! Only because it was so damn hot (44 degrees!) and there were hardly any decorations around the City (Sydney City Council scrooges??!). Had my first Christmas with a turkey (my first ever Christmas with turkey I think) and swimming on the day itself coupled with a feast involving many Danes and some Aussies for good measure. I felt happy to be with more family really!
I felt a little guilty at my lack of proactivity, but know that it's because I will return! It's inevitable really as the place is irresistible; the energy, the people, the vibe in the city. I would love to come back and work here for a year or something. I have to put a few good years into London first of course!! But it's definitely a possibility.
