The Countdown

Well, it's been a hectic few weeks since I last posted and it's only getting busier as time goes by. The countdown keeps going by and in just over a week and a half Eleonor and I are off to the UK! It's quite exciting, but we've still got so much to plan and do before that happens! eeeeep!

On top of all this, the changing face at work could see another position change for me depending how things work out within our department, and we're relocating to Werrington South from Hawkesbury so the team will finally exist on the same campus. So things are quite busy all over the place!

The Holiday...

Everything's finally paid for now and we're just getting everything else into place with our itineraries on their way to us with all the info we need to get on our tour and where we're staying etc. We still need to finalise meetup arrangements though with the family and friends during our time in London! I'm sure it will all come together, but you can't help but be a little anxious with the time running out :)

In the lead up to our departure, the weekends are quickly booked out and there's so much other stuff happening it's just craaaaaaaaazy!

The Music...

Things have been quite musical in life lately. A few weeks back I rocked out with Dave and Kell when we went to the Hordern Pavilion to see Disturbed! They were awesome, as were the support band Alter Bridge who Dave and I have taken a liking to as well. P.O.D. were also on stage, though I thought they'd have been a bit better than they were, but Disturbed made up for any shortcomings with a high energy concert playing most of the favourites from their four albums.

This past weekend we got the guys together and saw a psychadelic group called Van She. Eleonor and Claire were fans and had a great time at the front of the 'pit' as they did their thing.


Next week Dad and I are off to the Enmore to check out a Pink Floyd cover band who are renowned to be the best in the world...

The Flying...

Short story here. Haven't flown since the beginning of August due to tight money constraints and bad weather. I've booked myself in next weekend to try and hopefully conquer the first all important milestone of going Solo before we leave for the UK - fingers crossed...

More Flying...

Got some photos here from some recent spotting adventures down at Sydney Airport, but today was a momentous occassion as Dad and I went down to welcome Qantas' brand new Airbus A380 on it's first visit to Australia. We had an excellent viewing location and the video capture has turned out beautifully. Dad's photos also turned out great. He also showed me a new spotters location with awesome views and I got to try out my new camera recently purchased with aviation spotting in mind - my Canon Powershot S5 IS :)



Well, I'm going to try to keep this blog updating. Maybe one more episode before we leave for the UK - and hopefully many more to keep you up-to-date of our travels!

Until then...
