On this Week
A new beach Carrum Beach, basically up the road from Seaford so same same. If you can not beat perfection then just join them.
The Art of Banksy
A Banksy retrospective, featuring more than 80 of his best-known works, and exhibited in a gallery space. Does it sound like something that the British artist – an anti-establishment icon – would ever approve?
Angela & Nigel
My Aunty and Uncle from England arrived today on the Celebrity Solstice and docked in Port Melbourne which is a 10 minute tram ride from my flat.
Today was Australia Day and I made good use of the good weather and headed to my local beach. I wish I had gone further out as Port Melbourne Beach is a bit smelly and because of all the cruise ships there the water is not very clean.
I am in Bangkok staying at the Chatrium Hotel which is located on the banks of the majestic Chao Phraya River with the cultural and historical hub of Bangkok at its doorstep. I have been given a lovely room with a balcony with amazing views of the river and Bangkok skyline. The hotel has a great swimming pool which I have just spent the day at waiting for my flight to leave for Hong Kong.
I do not have much to say but one of my new years resolutions was to post at least once a month and I know I will not have time tomorrow as I am travelling back to Leeds.
I have just realised that I have not posted anything in 2011. I know, it is a disgrace but here I am confirming that I am still here, alive and breathing.
After purchasing a new pair of trainers 17 months ago I finally wore them for the first time and where was I going , was it a blind date, job interview, concert? No, it was to Coles to buy some groceries. I thought that we are in the middle of summer with no chance of rain so why am I not wearing them.
Wispa has arrived in Australia and I cannot stop eating them. When I was back in the UK in 2007 they were back but they had all sold out as it was a limited offer. After huge public demand they came back and now they are down under. Only 45pence back there but here they are a whopping £1.20. Thank You Cadburys xxx
Sony Vaio with HDMI
My laptop finally decided to call it a day and committed suicide. Cause of Death: Hard drive failure and burnt out motherboard caused by overheating. I managed to remove the hard drive and plug it into my new laptop so I still have my data. This happened on Friday night and Saturday morning having opened it up my worst fears came true. It was beyond repair, 3 years is a very good run for a laptop so I should not really complain. It was not a good start to the weekend. This is my new replacement and it has got HDMI output :). I have to say a big thank you to Simon Whatley for helping me through my Vista Nighmare.
Australian Open 2007
Friday was a public holiday for Australia Day so it has been a long weekend.
Man City 3-1 Man Utd
What a start to the new year, My first derby on my big screen. Scott, who I work with and also in a band called Stroll came round to watch the game and we did not disappoint.
