Hey, you're here now, great news.

We've got a landline eventually so you could ring that way or can you skype - watch the download if you're capped as it uses a fair bit.

Oh, you spoke to Mrs C yesterday - she never told me

Well, day 3 and so far so good. Simon went into work today to pick up his uniform, he was like a big child showing me it all when he brought it home. I walked to the local shopping centre and had a wee dander about, stopped and had some sushi, WOW I LOVE sushi! Whilst I was sitting eating it though this old man came walking towards me and sat down @ my table saying 'Sorry love, can I just sit here to change my bandaid' I felt like saying, 'Well no actually you can't you dirty get, I'M EATING MY LUNCH AND UR ABOUT TO EXPOSE UR YUCKY OWL CUT TO ME AND TAKE A HONKIN OWL PLASTER OFF IT!!!' like EWWWWWW Anyhoo, he changed it and thanked me saying 'Enjoy your lunch!' whilst I sat there thinking erm ok lol

This afternoon we went to look @ the house we've been offered and we've accepted it, so fingers crossed we'll be in it asap. Looked at washing machines in The Good Guys and Harvey Normans, The Good Guys were willing to knock $50 off the $700 price, is that a decent deal, or should we ask for more off?

Also looked @ some banger cars this afternoon, seen some possibilities so, that's good....

Anyhoo, over and out....

The Jenster xo

Commonwealth but by all accounts, most are better value - been good to us thus far though.
