Oh and some updates

So what's new in the life of K?
Not a whole lot really.
Uni's back this week, 4 good subjects, one dodgy one, last semester's marks very good (D's were better humph), best I've ever done!
Work's going along swimmingly, am now familiar enough with most people to actually have minor arguments with them , mainly based around the fact that I don't write someone off because they are quiet and I don't believe that being quiet means you have no personality. Why don't people just give others half a chance? Jeez....
Spent 4 days stuffing envelopes for the sales department as we are changing the hotels name shortly, 30 000 names on the database, and no I'm not exagerrating. It took more than 4 days to get them all sent out but I'd had enough by then and bailed out on them (feeling a wee bit guilty over that but seriously, should have been better organised and had more staff!).
Veggie garden area is cleared and ready for us to put the beds in, want to do it soon but D and I work all weekends (collectively) and uni times are inconveniant so we might just have to have half a day there and hope to get it done. Winter's running out!
So warm and Spring-like outside the last few days, been lovely :-)

Over enthusiastic post :-P

YAYAYA for Jetstar and promotional prices :-D D and I managed to land tickets to Phuket last night for less than half of the normal cost, the mind boggles :-o As a uni-friend put it, get in there before they go broke lol! Specials seem to have already sold out by today, managed to get SIL-A (as in Sister In Law A) a ticket too, same day, same plane, almost double the price but still very good so A will be coming along with us! She's been dying to meet Peter the Monkey ever since she saw his gorgeous picture a while back so it's all systems go from here!
Am over the moon excited, told everyone about our fabulous deal, even the girl who develops our photos lol! Trying to convince a pair of married friends to come along with us, I hope they do but at this stage I'm not getting my hopes up. Although Thailand is very cheap it's still a lot of money to come up with with only 5 months notice and they're still recovering from the wedding expenses so we'll wait and see.
Maybe this means I can get that Canon digital SLR I want so badly, hmmm...
To top of the high we're on right now, I won $8 on a scratchie ticket :-P
So yes, come Jan we'll be off to Phuket and not back in Aus until Feb 23, 7 weeks in total woohoo! fun fun fun. No idea what we'll be doing at this stage. We've never been to Phuket cos in my mind it's a sort of tourist hell but should be a good jumping off point to visit some of the more obscure islands around the place.Considering the Surin or Similan Islands near Burma at this stage. We'll actually be playing proper tourist for a while which will be fun. We want to go to Luang Prabang in Laos at some stage so will make that trip either on the way to or from Susan's house.
OMG I'm so excited! In 5 months I'll be eating Tom Kha soup until it comes out my ears :-D
