FRANCE | Thursday, 1 July 2010 | Views [331]

So yesterday the 29th June I had some work lined up with a captain to help clean his apartment that he owns here in antibes, and also had a call the night before for me to go back to Tugatsu for another day but had already said yes for the job with the captain. Th was all good! mucked around his apartment all day then laxed last night! He said after his apartment that he may have work for me today and said he will call.

30th got up nice and early and caught the train to Nice, alot bigger city than here and a suprisingly small port compared to here. Had to walk for ages not knowing where I was going to get to the port and eventually got there! Handed a couple of CVs out and then got a call from the captain for some more work today on his boat! stoked!said he wanted me back at 10am if i could make it so eventually arrived at his boat 9.50 and got stuck in. Worked hard, was the only one washing down outside in 30 degrees easy. His boat is only a 20m flybridge but still luxury! heading off on charter tomorrow. Only finished up two hours ago!! got paid 130 euros so all good, got the same amount now as i came over here with! happy there. Burnt as though!

Thinking tomorrow i might not set my alarm and see if i get a sleep in. Need to ajust my CV and add the day work to it and then check in at all the agencies. Flatty has scored a job in Cannes so we are sorting this flat out, will prob tr move into another flat since i dont want to take on any leasing responsibilities. Hope everyone is all good at home! seems like ive been here for a good month or so but it just over a week! been doing plenty! will keep posted tomorrow hopefully
