Hey guys!

How are you all doing? I need gossip from home, so give me all you got!

I thought I would update you on what I've been doing since my crazy hot tour in the desert! Well the answer is a whole lotta nothing!!!

I mooched around Cairns for about a day and then headed up on Port Douglas last Saturday, and I've literally spent the whole week just lazing around, reading lots, swimming quite a bit, and even biking!! Yes you read me right, biking! I think the only thing I've been working hard on is my tan, and although I'm not the golden brown I had in mind, I don't think I'm quite the flattering shade of pasty I was before. Fingers crossed anyway!!!

I'm staying at Dougies, which was recommended by Lucy, and its been perfect, exactly what I wanted, just before heading to India next week, where I'm sure I'll be in for many shocks to the system!! There are hammocks all over the place, the pool is lovely, there's even a bar right on site - no real reason to leave, ever! But I have ventured out a couple of times, visiting the beach and the market, which were both fun. The local beach is called four mile beach, however it is currently 'stinger season' and they have made a small area for you to swim in that they check for the super scary jellyfish, but other than that its no swimming, so its actually more like 50m beach, or what you can use anyway. Port Douglas itself is pretty tiny, but mostly made up of crazily posh resorts, most of which look waaay out of my league, so yeh Dougies has been the place for me!

So yeh, it's only a short one because I really haven't done anything particularly exciting or interesting! And it's been bloody great!! I'm heading back to Cairns tomorrow morning for a few days before flying to India next Thursday. This time next week I will have a real life boyfriend again! How exciting! I'm planning on doing some snorkelling on the great barrier reef on Sunday or Monday, which I'm planning to book in just a min, so hopefully I'll have something interesting to tell you all when I return from that.

Love you all, let me know how you're all doing!

Bye for now.

Hi sweetheart - I know the feeling, having just got back from two weeks in Tenerife doing nothing It was straight back to work this morning and what a change in the weather from 25deg Sunday morning sitting on the verandah in Las Chritianos to 4deg when I went to work this Monday morning at 7:00a so be carefull about gloating of your super ling holiday whilst we are slaving away - you might not get any replies. Anyway its great to hear that your still enjoying yourself in Oz - I'm so jealous that you are snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef especially as its me who is the SCUBA diver - its just not fair - but as its you I'll forgive you.
i cant wait to see the photos of the reef just so I know what to expect when we go !!!!
So not much longer in Oz and its off to India and more hot weather and fantastic foods not to mention meeting up with the love of your life Dan
I do hope you try some of the amazing food s on offer throughout India Marc will want to know you have tried almost everything and will need some recipes to try out.
So as far as news is concerned I need to catch up myself and will update you later this week.
Be Careful
Lots of Love Daddio and Jane
