Oh dear, it's been a month since my last post. I have really been getting slack lately haven't i? In my defence, December and Jan are busy times of year and I spent about a week and half over Christmas in the Cotswolds - lazing by a fire and gorging myself on Christmas goodies. New Year's Eve was a chilly gin-filled fun affair at a house party in Hampstead with a midnight stroll up to watch the fireworks on Primrose Hill (not that I remember too much about those!). After all the horrified comments from people from home after looking at my NYE photos and commenting on how freezing it looked, I realised that I have definitely acclimatised to the British weather. Yep it's pretty cold I guess, but I don't notice it so much anymore! So there is hope for all you beach-loving Aussies wanting to take a working holiday - I am proof that you can survive!

Last week was my birthday and also the week that i started a new job, working for a fab publishing house with beautiful offices on the Thames. Although the weather has been a little bit grey, it's gorgeous looking out your window and seeing St Paul's cathedral, the Millennium bridge, and all the boats going by. The pubs are going to be amazing in the summer - I can't wait! (have already been scoping out a few!).

So 2008, the beginning of my THIRD year in London (god has it been that long??), is going pretty well so far. Could it be my last? We will see..
