You can't phone anyone after 9pm because they have to get up for milking, and because they have got up for milking they ring you at 7am!

Default Another lovely day............

A wonderful day in the Gold Coast..........22c overnight........although there is some much needed rain at the moment............but still 22c!

Bugger! Do you know it has rained 4 times since I've been over here?

Absolutely atrocious!

It rained 3 times when I was in NZ - 50 weeks of the first year, 51 of the second year and 49 of the third.

I refer you to the photo on the Who are you talking to thread!!!!

Would be more than happy to teach you to dive - just stay in touch and I'll sort you out when we get to NZ no probs!!! Once you've been surrounded by dolphins down there for ages on a dive you'll never wanna come up ever again!!!

p.s. I don't do tantric - too much messin about for my likin! I just wanna get finished and have a fag!!!

You're quite the man, aren't you? With your bloomin' PADIs and your FOREXes and your DIJTRHFZIs.

I did do a scuba diving course in the Dominican Republic in order to overcome my fear and loathing of the water, and I was rather damn good in the pool I can tell you. But when it came to the big sea... absolutely NFW (you like that one?! ).

I also booked several trips with the dolphins in NZ a) because they are lovely and b) to attempt to get over fear and loathing of water BUT I never got to go. Why? Because it sodding well rained every time, didn't it?! And they cancelled (the company that is, not the dolphins, although presumably they asked the dolphins first).
