Okay, so my day has gotten remarkably brighter, even when it has been monsooning outside intermittently.
First cool thing – I received a care package full of all sorts of things from Canada today! Pads! Shampoo! Make-up! Fisherman’s Friend! Dryer sheets! No hot dogs though, I guess I’ll have to wait until I get home to get those… 🙂
Second cool thing – I’ve heard from the other side. The other side of Australia that is! I’ve booked my flight to Perth (pictured here, and yes, a picture that was nicked off of the interweeeb) to visit my relatives! Looks like my holidays will correspond nicely with theirs, and I’ve been told that my visit around November will be nice, but not too terribly hot. Although I failed to mention I was staying until Dec.18th, so I may have a surprise or two weather wise while there. I’ve heard that 45 degrees celsius isn’t terribly uncommon. So, my birthday this year (29, *gasp*) will be spent on a beach somewhere in Perth, celebrating International Monkey Day.
