It's good mate, are you single or married? whats the job? decent money?

there's lots to do but it can be a bit of a mad place, most people work hard through the week then go and do cool things on the weekend, whether its chilling at the beach or going crackers on the beer on the brunches, there's a fair bit to do,

I've been here 7 months now and love it, can't see myself leaving for a few years at least,

saying that I'm going home for teh 3rd time in a year at Christmas, I do miss my mates and family, but 7 hours direct to the toon is pretty handy.

If they're giving you the right-wing-suite at the hotel to live in then that's good...

Well they ought to...I won't say that they are giving you small money, but about 20 others will come over and tell you that you are...
