Happy New Year everybody  
I'm currently in Brisbane, staying with Emily's family.
We arrived on New Year's Eve, and then had a pretty quiet night, and barely managed to stay awake until twelve.
To be fair though, we had been up since very early and twelve here is one in the morning Melbourne time.

In the two days we've been here we've had plenty of food and booze, although the drinking has been a slow stream, rather than an all-out binge. I also tried my first martini, and since I am such a wuss on drinking spirits, it may not surprise you to know that I couldn't finish it. It was actually rather tasty, but I just can't stomach the hard stuff straight. I feel so unsophisticated.

I have so far managed to go swimming every day we've been here, which is a pattern I'm hoping to keep up. Emily's family has a beautiful, heated pool.

Tomorrow we are heading to the coast; somewhere in Northern New South Wales, I believe. We are going to the beach for a swim, and seeking out some kind of seafood lunch. I have been promised plenty of seafood this week, but so far have had to make do with chicken, ham, turkey, bacon, home-made bread, etcetera. Poor me.

For those of you who are hanging out to see us, Emily and I return to Melbourne on the 6th, but not before we have been to Dreamworld (I think we've got that scheduled for Tuesday). I'm very much looking forward to subject some of you to my mixed CD at Sapphy's BBQ on the 8th.

Hey, maybe we passed each other on the road? ^^

On the road?
We went to Brisbane on Qantas.
We're not that silly.

Well, maybe you passed over us. :P
