A Day of ‘Research’

The festive period was officially over as I had gotten back into my work schedule; along with the gym and touch footy in the evenings. It wasn’t long until the weekend came around though; and since we had worked hard for just under two weeks Cherie and I thought it would be great to go…

A 42 Degree Day

If anyone ever tells you ‘don’t move to Melbourne, it’s cold and rains all the time’ do not, I repeat DO NOT believe them!! The weather is inconsistent yes, but it most definitely was not cold this day… Rumours had spread across town that the weekend would bring a heatwave, and my ignorant British self-taught…

One More Christmas Party!

I know it’s now January 2018, but there’s still time for another Christmas party! My boss and I started back at work on the 3rd and decided that a team lunch should take place to ease us into the New Year. We invited Kerry along too, she works for immigration and shares the same office…

Happy New Year

Hogmanay had arrived once again, 2017 was a fantastic year for me; I had the best experience of my life working on the farm, I travelled up to Uluru, I met the most amazing friends and I started working in my dream job as a Marketing Manager. New Years Eve was a more relaxed event…

An Unforgettable Road Trip

So it was that weird period of time again; Christmas was over and you’re just waiting around for New Year. What’s the best thing to do? Go on a road trip of course!

Christmas Day in Melbourne 🎄☀️

It may be over 25 degrees here and extremely sunny, nevertheless I still felt unbelievably Christmassy! It did take me till Christmas Eve to feel like this though!

Another Day, Another Christmas Party

I love the festive period! Everyday you are surrounding by great company, spirits are high and there is ALWAYS delicious food on offer. The celebration in this blog’s entry was a house party in Melbourne’s CBD. Who was the host you say? This gets complicated so get ready; I met Lea from my trip to…

Digital First’s Christmas Party

Another day, another wine tour! However, this time I wasn’t working but was taking part! My boss Grant felt guilty about not having a staff Christmas party, and he also had two friends visiting from Scotland, so combined the two and bought a last minute wine tour for all of us! The sun was out…

Serenity Tours is Open for Business

A project that my boss’ girlfriend Cherie had been putting her life and soul into, had finally become reality! Cherie had asked me to help her with the marketing side and I jumped at the chance. The company is called Serenity Tours, and it offers hiking experiences, as well as wine tasting around the Yarra…

Date Night

Summer was in full swing which meant every night was sunny and warm.  I saw this as a perfect opportunity to go out for dinner with Jamie. We went to United Kitchen, along Fitzroy street, which was a tapas restaurant.  We started the evening with espresso martinis, and they were fantastic! I ordered avocado mixed…

Brunch by the Beach

The lovely Gordon’s who hosted me for over 10 days, called in a favour and asked if I could babysit the boys. I jumped at the chance as I hadn’t seen them in a couple of months, and having a sober Saturday would be a refreshing change.  I came over to their place, treats in…

Goodbye to the Swiss 

The time had come around again, friends you make whilst travelling leave. This time it was my lovely Swiss ladies Lea and Michelle. The girls were originally meant to leave Oz and fly to Bali but the erupting volcano had other plans… so they ended up staying in Melbourne for an extra week and we…
