Yep they are from Gary.
There is a card and everything telling my how long until he arrives in Australia. It was the nicest surprise I could of got what with a long week and the Christmas Cheer depleating from my emotions the closer Christmas Day gets. These Lovely flowers are now sitting in my room, the buds still closed and when I get back after my Christmas Holidays they will be in full bloom. ooooooo i Cannot wait.
And...its Christmas Eve tomorrow. It def does not feel like it. I have my presents and I have to pack them to take to Bondi where I am spending Christmas. I also have to pack for my Ocean Drive which commenses on Christmas day evening. I cannnot wait for all these adventures. Christmas is going to be strange thou, sunny (hopefully) no turkey sit down dinner, no family except my BFAM, and no crappy weather that makes you stay inside all day long. I hope its a good day thou, last year I had a hangover and this year could quite possibly follow suit....we shall see......BRING ON THE FESTIVITES

The Blue Mountains are about an hour n half drive away from the city, a picturesque drive. We, me and Matt, headed to Wentworth Falls where a girl I had been introduced to was staying. The mountains are just full of all these little towns. The towns that have one street but a million houses surrounding. The towns that have shops that are run by the people that live there. Towns that have art and craft shops and bakeries and handmade trinkets. Just amazing.
While I was there I drove all over. (ok I didnt drive Dani did but I was an avid passenger) I saw the infamous three sisters, loads of water falls, I went on short strolls around the forests, I went on a train thing that scared the hell out of me, I walked under the canopy of trees on the mountain floor and I bought some lovely presents for myself!!! hehe. I always try and get some jewelry from places I have been and i thought that I would get myself a bracelet it was in the sale. soooo pretty.
I stayed at Danis and was made risotto - something I never had before because it usually has fish in it, it was lovely and I have decided that I like stuffed green olives but I do no like black olives!!!
Next week is the Hunter Valley Wine Country but this is not until I have headed to get some food shopping, I am running low on food!! and done 3 days at a work that I am undecided what I think about....
hope you all enjoy xoxoxox

I also got my photos to start my sydney scrap book, it does seem as though I am going to need a seperate scrap book for my travels up the coast AND more pages in this scrap book. Apparently I take way to many photos.
This weekend is suppose to be the Blue Mountains visit, I hope that I am better for it or I will be very upset because I now dont have a free weekend until after Gary gets here, and thats only about 73 days...woooohooo I cant wait.
Right, back to the dreaded application form, the good thing about being ill is that you can get loads of stuff done (computer wise) from the comfort of your own bed.

I wanted to come to australia to live and see how it is to live out here, which is what i am doing. but i also want to see as much of the country as possible. I had planned to come out for over a year but circumstances change don't they? and so my plans change and i am going back in february.I thought that i would write a blog so i can keep track of my feelings and thoughts while i am out here and it gives me a place to vent or gush however i want :-0my boyfriend is back in the UK, i kind of left him behind and i miss him terribly. i also miss all my friends i left behind. dont you just wish you could up and move everyone that you want to be with you to the country you want to live....if only it was that easy.
