Oh hai

It’s been a while, yeah? Think I’ll be back soon. Stand by.

Pics are up!

Want to re-live the moment? Want to piece together the tequila fuelled night that was?

See photos here!

More are being added to the sets as we have them sent over from all of you wonderful people.

Epic catch up (again)

I wanted to try and update weekly, but you know, I never seem to find the time. So here’s one of those annoyingly long blog posts. Photo heavy though…not too many words haha.

Let’s start with Australia day. Sure, we had Fosters (we bought all of the Coopers), ladies cooked and there were hamburgers (oh yeah, opposite land) but it was a tonne of fun. Looking forward to next years celebration already.

Australia day USA

That’s one think I’ve picked up along the way. Holidays. Americans celebrate every holiday and the supermarkets don’t let you forget it. I think I’m going to run by a new calendar that isn’t dictated by months, but just holidays. At the moment, it’s Valentines-uary, soon enough it will be St Patricks-uary, I’m really looking forward to October-ween and Turkey-vember!

Did a bit of work out at the last trade show

If that’s not all, we’ve been treated to warm weather in the mid to high 20’s for over a week now. It’s the middle of Winter. MIDDLE OF WINTER!

PS We’ve also started Spanish lessons. Hola!

Happy new year!

Alas! No exciting photos. We made an effort to drive down to San Diego to watch the fireworks. The Gaslamp Quarter was full of twenty-somethings with sequined mini’s on, lots of tiara’s, guys in paper hats and huge lines outside clubs.

It seemed pretty quiet on the waterfront, but we walked a bit and eventually found some people along the foreshore. Some random let us in a 10 second countdown to midnight, everyone got pretty excited…except there were no fireworks. Boooooooo!

Anyway, 2011 is going to be a good one.

Happy new year! xx
