So its officially been over a month since our last update to you all. We're Sorry!! We have been SO busy - or just very lazy, you decide!

Since our last update quite a bit has happened - mind you we were in Brisbane for the entire time, we managed to find jobs and get an apartment, all in the space of 3 days! Working was great it gave us some extra cash that we needed, and that was the main point of going to Brisbane in the first place. We found work in a place called City Beach, Brisbanes biggest surf store - luckily due to its size we both managed to work together - Frankie on womens floor, and Kim on Mens, although we weren't directly with each other we'd be giving cheeky smiles up the floors when we were being lazy! :O) All in all City beach was great, we both made some friends and generally had a chance to get back into work.... for 2 weeks! Ha Ha! As a casual employee you can work up to 30 hours a week - up to - being the key word there, we didnt get enough hours so made the decision to move in from Brissy.... but more of that story later.

As we menioned before - an apartment, Great thing this - cheaper than a hostel, and the opportunity to watch what YOU want on TV when you like!! We had our own room and had a fantastic view of Brisbane from the balcony! Oh yes - we only do Ensuites, with balcony views of the city! We moved in, and after about 4.2 seconds the room did look as though a clothes bomb had gone off... and that was how it was to stay for 3 weeks haha! an organsied mess. Staying in the apartment was great, we got into our routine, the 375 bus, work, via "coles" or Brumbys to grabs some food, 375 home - pray that the 1 key we had was in one of our bags, drink some fanta, cook some tea, simpsons, neighbours (Kim has that one) and bed! It felt, again, like a "home" because we made some great friends there and did so many things!

Surfing, Mount Tambourine, Mount cooltha, Australia Zoo, Gold coast, art exhibitions and mueseums (very cultured now) - Thanks to making friends with people who owned cars (haha) we got to do all this and it was great - surfing was amazing and we cant wait to maybe try it out in a school when we head back to Sydney to Christmas. Australia Zoo another high point for the trip, and again beaches and the sights of the city! All in all brisbane was a great city - cant wait to go back and hit Noosa, Fraser and Whitsundies! We'll keep you posted!
