me from today i’ve started really loving this Jordash top i bought a while ago, maybe it’s because i found some leggings that go well with it, but i felt really happy in it today, even with the rubbish weather! happyyy
I woke up around 1030. Going to
bed at 0200 was a great idea until I realised how tired I felt when I
got up. Steve is still unwell, he’s got a blocked nose, a bad
headache that doesn’t go away and a chesty cough. A case of the Man
I started work at 1600 so I had
the majority of the day. I wanted to go and lay by the pool and do my
lengths but the weather looked rubbish. It was so grey and cloudy. I
decided to stay in the room. I got on with my blogs, got showered and
doodled about. I had my Weetabix for breakfast and a cup off coffee.
Steve laid in bed, playing on
his phone. He was hungry and had the hump as we had no food. To be
fair, we literally have no food. We haven’t been able to do a food
shop since before everyone left the hostel. It must’ve been 3-4 weeks
ago at least. We’re down to Weetabix, bread and a few tins of lentils
and tuna. That’s pretty much it. We haven’t been able to go
because the van would cost us too much to split between us two.
Luckily, the Brighton boys have returned from their holiday to Bali
so they need to do a shop. We’re hoping to go Tuesday because
tomorrow is Bank Holiday - WOO! Actually, there is no woo about it.
I’m working 1400-2300… And, it’s not even time and half.
I told Steve that he had a tin
of Corned Beef left and that he should make a sandwich. We were going
to try and make corned beef hash but we never got round to buying
potatoes. He opened the tin which took about 10 minutes with that
little annoying key and he made two sandwiches. He said it was
alright but it was much softer than at home. It wasn’t the same taste
either. The heat obviously is a massive factor to any shape here.
It’ll melt and/or expand. Which, by the way, is my excuse for putting
on weight. Everything expands in the heat…
I got dressed for work and left
around 1545. I wanted my Dad to wake up so that I could wish him
Happy Birthday but it was still early doors at home. I text him to
say that I’d call him after work. There’s a big NFL game on today
- The Grand Final. It’s rugby, I think. The Queensland team Cowboy’s
are in it so I reckon work is going to be ridiculously busy. Hey ho,
here’s to a busy night.
Lexi was in at 1100 so she’s
finishing at 1800. I had Francis until 2000 though so I was pleased
about that. The two busses that come between 1600-1700 were pretty
empty so there was no rush at all. It was a pretty east day so far.
Lexi left, Francis was doing the
toilets and bins. It was bin day but she managed to get them out on
her own. I was stuck inside serving constantly. It wasn’t busy but it
was constant. There was always at least 1 person somewhere. You go to
start another job about 10 times before you actually get to do it.
I completed the cleaning by
1930. I started the floors which is actually very early to do floors.
This was the calm before the storm… The kick off was at 1830 I
think so we weren’t going to be busy until later on, especially
because we are right next to the pub. As soon as they’re finished
celebrating, they’ll be in for fish and chips.
I got on with what needed doing.
It was so quiet so I was able to finish fairly early. Brandon, who’s
the nights guy said he would let me out when the pub closes or
midnight. Whatever comes first. It’s a massive shame really because I
would’ve been done by 2100/2200 if there was no football on.
I helped Brandon out with some
of his jobs to pass the time. He said that I could go at 2300 because
it was abnormally quiet. The Cowboys lost so I’m guessing everyone
went home to sulk. Never mind then!
I text Steve and said that I
would be done by 2300 and he came to meet me. I was absolutely
starving. The past few days all I’ve had is Weetabix for breakfast
and that’s all. By the time I get home, it’s too late.
We got in, watched the rest of
the film on the TV and then FaceTimed Dad to say Happy Birthday.
Ange, Nan and Gramps were round so I got to say hi to them too. My
brother and Mum have treated themselves to a week away in Lanzarote
which should be nice.
Steve and I cannot wait for a
holiday. I know that we are in Australia and it’s a year away from
home but we’re exhausted from it. It’s so tiring. Plus, the smallest
things have become a luxury to us whereas they’re normal in day to
day life back home. Like, having a clean towel for the shower.
Finding beef stock cubes the other day was like finding gold.
Steve is missing home a lot now,
he can’t wait to go back. I think the main reason is because the new
Fifa 18 is out… I know, don’t ask. He is in the middle of nowhere,
with nobody around including me. I’m at work and he just sits in bed
so he must be homesick. We’ve got a few months left and they’re gonna
be good ones! Fingers crossed.
