Day 28: Settling in

Slept. In. Ahhhh...

Had coffee & The Scot made me delicious eggs & I sat in my pajamas watching TV. Funny that something so normal & boring can be so delightful.

They have skype, so I talked my mom (sorry dad, by the time we were done talking it was too late your time to call you; I'll call later) and chick - so nice to hear their voices!

After a good bit of lying around, we headed out for a nice driving tour of the city. We saw some pretty beachfront towns & rocky, sandy coastline that reminds me of California.

They took me to some lakes & parks to look at the funny birds, and we went to Kings Park & checked out the beautiful view of the city.  AB and I talked about the wedding (they're getting married in 2011) and the Awesome job I'm about to start.

Went to the grocery store - I love groceries in foreign places, there are always such strange things to check out - then came home for AB's famous bloody marys (the secret is old bay seasoning!), spring roll appetizers, and a peking duck dinner, which I've never had & they've never made before, so it was an adventure.  An adventure in deliciousness.

Cleaned up, watched TV and read a beauty-full Aussie magazine, Frankie, and then to bed.  First day of work tomorrow!

Today I am so happy & grateful for:
~ a lazy day
~ comfort
~ Skype

xo! n.
