2008: An overview

January 4, 2009

-Our ceiling collapsed thanks to inaction of our useless estate agent (don’t use Carlton Residential!)
-My photos were featured in the Schmaps online guides.
-The Australian government apologised to Indigenous Australians for the stolen generations and for past inhumane treatment. Now if they would just stop the intervention (or at least re-instate the Racial Discrimination Act so it actually applies to what they’re doing in the intervention) things could maybe improve.
-I got a spouse visa giving me leave to remain and work in the UK for two more years.
-I really got into podcasts (thanks to the ipod Paul gave me for Christmas.
-We moved into a really nice flat that is really close to amenities and train station, etc.
-We went to an Enchanted Woodland and we continued to explore and get-to-know London.
-I bought a very cool Atlantis Space Jacket.

Cold weekend in Exeter

December 2, 2008

It’s been very cold lately – between 0 and 10 degrees (celsius) during the day – quite unpleasant.

On the weekend Paul and I went to Exeter for Thomas’ house-warming which was lots of fun – but very cold. Thomas wasn’t lying when he said he had a cold house. But there were lots of interesting people there to talk to and I got to see Felicity who I haven’t seen for probably 7 years and Michelle who I met at Thomas’ 30th two and a half years ago has recently had a baby (he is sooo cute) so it was cool to talk to her about that (and cuddle the baby).
