Xmas Eve

So its been a while since my last diary entry!! Having moved around a lot in the last 10 days I havent been able to get near a pc and download my pics. Christmas Eve saw me mooching around the CBD having a few touristy days before Andrea picked me up and took me to her familys place for the christmas period. Having a few glorious days of work and a week of heavy socialising I was looking forward to chilling out and abstaining from the barmaids apron

I went to Ednaville- Dame Edna's exhibition which was fun and generally took lots of pictures of the decorations adorning Melbourne. Queen Victoria Market named after the glorious lady herself is a famous landmark of Melbourne- it offers everything from fruit & veg to wooden ducks and camel rides. Its extremely popular with restauranteurs picking up thier produce for the day to everyday people buying thier steaks and prawns for the barbie. I love it there- its almost on par with Borough Market in London Bridge...but without the class! I've had some great noodles there on a Wednesday when they host a night market -live bands, bars and restaurants set up stalls there and you can eat for cheap as chips while watching a bad version of Yellow Brick Road!


There were to be 4 of us Poms going to Leongatha ( central gippsland- south victoria) 2 hours from Melbourne - dairy region. Andrea's ex boyfriend- his mum and sister who had come out for the cricket... all from Bath and extremely great fun to be around! We had all been hoping for sunshine and lots of warmth.......
