The holidays begin

Well, it’s finally here – my last day at work. I’m busy tidying up my desk and handing everything I’ve worked on over to other people. Looking back, the past 6 months at Alcatel have flown by – it didn’t really seem any longer than my previous 10 week placements. I’m going to miss the soccer games and exercise classes at lunch time as well as Maggie’s Thai every Friday. I’ll have to see if VeCommerce have something similar, although I doubt it since they are a small company.

So, tomorrow I’m off to England for 4 weeks. I can’t wait. I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone, and especially seeing Jackie. Tom – if you read this, get your arse in gear and give me a call about Sunday night! (from Captain Contiki πŸ˜‰ ) I’m looking forward to the flight because it is going to be my first chance for a good sleep in a few days. This past week has been a little crazy since it’s my last week at work, my last week in Sydney (although I’m not gone long), first week of session at uni, and it was Louis’ birthday on Monday (Happy Birthday again). This has all resulted in a taxing schedule – I’ve been out Saturday,Sunday,Wednesday, Thursday and I’m going out tonight.

It’s been a fun week though. Saturday and Sunday nights were in the Cross (some photos at NightCATS.org in the ‘Mr Miaow’s birthday bash’ album). Wednesday was at the Coogee Palace for a pyjama party and free beer (photos soon hopefully!). Last night was at unibar for a ‘prom night’ themed party, and tonight is going to be a night out in the city with free entry to a couple of places courtesy of NightCATS.

Anyway, that’s my rambling done. I should get back to tidying my desk up. I’ll be writing again soon from England, and I’ll put up some photos as soon as I can πŸ™‚
