Rear Window

We've settled down in our shared house and have the weekend to ourselves and all I want to do is put my feet up and relax which is exactly what I'm doing.

The weather is particularly wet and miserable (like a Northern Ireland summer) but I'm not too bothered as I'm not going anywhere. Last night there was a lightning storm which looked fantastic but the apartments opposite were blocking the view so all I could see where gigantic flashes from above which lasted a couple of hours.

Above is the view from our bedroom window which looks onto the Sydney Olympic park stadium. I think they might be having the grand final rugby league there tomorrow but we wont be around to find out as we're heading to a place called The Shire where a friend of the family is having a BBQ party. [So you have to travel to Oz to find the shire - we were looking in the wrong country all this time!]

This is the view from the front of the apartment - it's exactly like living in a resort! It's very clean and I wouldn't hesitate to walk around in bare feet.

Today we picked up card passes which mean we can get access to the on-site gym, swimming pool, tennis courts, library etc and community bus so we can catch a lift to nearby places like the ferry and train station - very handy!

Tonight it's a bottle of wine and a movie so the un-winding can run the full gamut of the long weekend. See you next week.

Looks like you're in a lovely area. Hopefully you won't get too much noise from the stadium, although we weren't too far away from Jade Stadium when we lived in Harrow Street and we didn't ever have a problem.

Then again we did look for a house near the stadium and were warned that people not wanting to walk far would quite happily park on your land (inculding sometimes your driveway) if they felt like it. Some residents even rented out their front gardens as car parking space each week!

I'm glad to hear that you're both settling down well and that you've found jobs easily enough. Good interview btw Lou - heard about your correcting the interviewer on the fact that it wasn't 5 points, it was 12! Keep up the good work and best of luck with the job :D

Will have to get over and visit you guys some time. We have a long weekend at the end of the month (27th), which is cool as Hallowe'en is the 31st so it'll be a shorter and more fun week than normal. Plus Hallowe'en is our anniversary, so we'll probably be doing something fun in or around that.

Anyway have a good one and speak to you soon!
