AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 21 June 2008 | Views [507] | Comments [7]

dear all,

we are no longer unemployed bums...we have jobs!!!hooray!! our employment will begin on the 3rd of july at faskally. all details of the location are in the below link!


Its a caravan park, so we will be doing general duties, cleaning etc, but it has its own bar which also serves meals so we will be doing that as well, dan willbe doing some maitenance work, using the tractor to move caravans and general outdoor stuff.

We will be living in a house with shared kitchen and bathroom, we can cook our own meals, and will have free days to do wateva.

the pay is much better then anywhere else, most places for livein work/bar work are minimum wage which is around 5 pound, but not us!!we will be taking home 210pound per week (thats minus accomadation) which is really good. Its a summer job so we will work hard and save hard!

till then we are staying in manchester, going out partying with amys cousins, and then wednesday we are flying to dublin to see amys gpa, then hopefully going to belfast and giants causeway and will be back to start work around the 3rd of july.

all very exciting, and now knowing we have a job, we can blow the rest of our money, hooray!

love all, xooxoxox

love jess xoxoxooxox

Hi Everybody, Great you have a job, does this include Amy? We wondered whether it would be the Lakes or Oxford and it turned out to be Scotland, beautiful area! Perhaps you will be able to get to the Isle of Skye, we went there, lovely trip. Enjoy Ireland, somewhere we never got too,Betty will be proud of you she comes from Belfast and her grandson was there only a couple of weeks ago. The Edinburgh Tattoo is well worth a visit too. We laughed regarding the lighht nights thats what we missed when we came to Australia, and in Dalson City in the Yukon we were taking photos at 11,30 pm without a flash!!! Quite an experience!!!!
Glad to hear you are flying to Dublin, crossing the Irish Sea can get a little rough at times!!! Have fun
Luv G'Ma &G'Pa

Well done guys employment already, thats fantastic. Faskaly looks really pretty, I'm sure you will enjoy your days off exploring Scotland. Are you near Tash? Amy's Gpa must be so excited about your visit, Fergel said at the airport when you were leaving that his Dad couldn't wait for you all to visit. Have a great time, enjoy your last few days of holiday. Keep taking lots of photos, haven't seen many photos of Scotland and Ireland so i'm looking fwd to that. Love you lots and lots love mum and dad xxxxxooooo

Hi Everybodies, have just been checking out our Atlas, what a beautiful area you will be going to lots of mountains, locs, (or Lakes)the most fantastic are to work in!! Not Far is romantic Loc Lomond, then you will have to see if you can catch a glimpse of the monster at Loc Ness, there's Ben Nevis (don't quote me)from what I can remember from my school days, the highest mountain in the British Isles (not as high as Kosiosko of course). Then there's the famous St Andrews Golf Course lots of world famous golfers go there. So many more lakes and countryside to explore, could be a bit cooler there, and a bit lighter at night and early morning.....enjoy. Luv G'Ma & G'Pa

Hi All
I have now put a link to your blog on my work computer so i can access easier than b4! So smart i am! Sounds like your having an amazing time and i love your photos! Those boobs look nothing like your mothers Jess in Germany! Missy has done the ligaments in her ankle and its soooo swollen and sore! No work or basketball for a while which is a pain! Sarah in an exam now and then has 5 weeks off so she is looking fwd to the break! Hope you all continue to enjoy yourselves. Watched the Bombers beat the Blues yesterday it was a fantastic game! Sorry Gai!! Luv Sue xx
