And because I haven't written in quite a few days, quick three point update....

  • I'm going through the sniffing, headache stage caused by a cold....Quite horrible actually. Jenna passed it to Kaity who passed it to Emily who passed it to me. I feel like one large tissue....
  • Tom and his cuteish dog, Barney are staying...Barney is destructive, jumpy, annoying, yet adorable. Today he somehow got out and Emily and I searched all over until we found him, sitting innocently in the backyard of our house.
  • I love free stuff! Jenna got us a free head wash, massage, treatment, and blowave at the Tafe that she goes to every tuesday. My hair hasn't felt so lovely in ages...

Now, I'm going to go help Mum make pizza...
