Home Sweet Home ...

I am home and have had my potato!
I returned to Hamilton yesterday after a three hour flight and a crying baby for 3/4's of it, but made it safe and sound with my bottles of duty free and mega toblerones (spelling!?)
Its weird coming home, it feel like I never left, but in fact life does go on for everyone else and I kinda feel out of the loop. So just trying to catch up and fit back into my groove. I always think of home as being great and wonderful, which it is mostly, but neglected to remember that its the bad things like it cold over here, today it was sunny, rainy, windy and cold, almost four seasons in one day.
Anyway am signing off and will let you know how the wedding is tomorrow.

Thats the plan Stan

Well I found myself recently in a sticky situation. I was finding it hard to get a flatmate, work was getting unbearable and I was quick running out of money. Then my mother suggested “why don’t you come home for a while?” and I thought, wow that’s actually a good idea. I can help them pack, do some casual work and hang out with Katie

So I quit my job, last day next Wednesday, yahh!!!!!!

My only problem is that I haven’t rented my house out yet, but the real estate agent is onto it and I hope to have it rent out soon.

So I will be back as planned early (12am) on Friday 24 November 2006. I am planning on staying around Hamilton/Auckland area until 2 or 3 December and then I will head down to Napier for a while and then probably after xmas to Gis for a few days and then back to Hamilton for new years and then back to the Gold Coast in January 2007 some time!

Am so excited – see you all in just over a week!!

My hair

For the last 15 years I have been unhappy my my frizzy, thick, curly, fluffy hair. It is just unmanagable and I have even been called a bouff head (you know who you are and yes you have scarred me for life). So I vowed that as soon as I moved to Australia I would change my life and spending more time and money on my hair fell into that catergory.
I found a great hairdressers who have always done a good job (see 1, 2, 3) and the best invention in the world the Wet 2 Straight hair straightner (thank you!).
So on Saturday I decided to go and get my hair done and as soon as i walked into the hairdressers I got a bad vibe and then I found out it was under new managment. Shit! I decided that I would still get it done and decided to get a cut, colour and foils. After three hours my hair was done but it wasn't exactly how I planned, the cut and colour was good but the foils. They were the worst foils I had ever seen, they are uneven, the colour has merged, it looks like I have regrowth, one side looks like I DIYed my own streak AND my sister told me it was called a bitch stripe! I don't want a bitch stripe

So I called them back and said I was really upset and I will keep you posted on my progress.

The other side ...

On Saturday Nic and Dustin came over for a few drinks. Last weekend I was telling them that the only game that I have on my playstation was singstar. Dustin said "but you don't tell poeple that though" and I am like " Yes, I am proud of the fact!". So on Saturday we cranked it out and they are totally converted. Take back that mocking! So we sung until our throats hurt and had a good laugh. Unbenowen to them, I videoed some of efforts and have posted them in my Photo Gallery. Check it out!!

Blog worthy moment

Well for sometime I have been unhappy with the National Bank. There atms machines are always down and I couldn't do inter bank banking. So I vowed as soon as I had recovered from my broken leg I would go and get a new bank account with a new bank. I was debating between Heritage Building Society and ANZ Bank, purely because I could design my own card. So because Heritage had no banking fees I decided to go with them.

Look at my two awesome cards that I will have shorlty. My new visa totally outways my visa mini in coolness
