You should be able to get more than that off at GG. If you're buying a few things you might be able to get up to 20% off - but even a single purchase theres usualy more than 10% to be gained in the haggling.

Only find out by trying. Hearing 'no' won't kill you Local library may be an easier bet?

I don't have to move stuff (not your resume stuff ) just thought it would make it easier for your fans

HAHA @ FANS...yeah go on then, makes sense to move it...

Went to the uni, girl @ front desk said yes and sent me to library, arrived @ library huffin and puffin cos I'd to ask several people where it was, only to be told no, u have to be a student here lol

So I've returned back to the house to have a glass of juice before trying to figure out how to drive to the library without getting killed in the car! (first day i've driven about on my own)

Went to post office to post a gift to Simon's dad for his bday, the people weren't behind glass screens, how mad was that! Also he asked me for ID, do I look that dodgy? lol

One more thing, popped to woolies yday to get some stuff, had seen that nestle diet yog on tele so bought some, OMG $3 for two tubs, and they are far too big, aren't there any cheaper fat free yogs?! GULP!

Just called into the local PCYC, is this an Australia wide thing? I've subsequently emailed them my CV as I've STILL to find a printer, going to go to the local library after this, so it'll all be ok in the end...

Yes, it's a countrywide thing, they're great places for the kids. I'm surprised your Aus Post didn't have one, they all do around here.

It's a Police and Community Youth Club, and I thought with my police role in the UK plus my teaching experience, they might find me useful, or maybe not lol

I'm sure they would! I guess it wouldn't necessarily be a full-time job, but then that might not be a bad thing eh?!
