Can’t believe it’s been over 4 months since I posted. Where did the time go? As always, it’s the busiest time of year for work for me. And lots of things have been happening. I recently started planning my trip to Europe, and as that is less than2 months away now, I’ll be REALLY busy.
Had a great day yesterday. My performance appraisal went well, so that was a massive relief after all the time I spent preparing. I new I’d done a good job, but sometimes they say something that completely comes out of nowhere. Nothing like that this time. Had lunch with Helen, her daughter who is 11 and 2 of her daughter’s friends at Lindt Cafe. Lindt Chocolate Brownie – YUM! Got a few of the Quarterly work returns out of the way. And then, I found out that Kozzmozz is on in Ghent, Belgium on 10th September. AND I CAN GO!!!!! The lineup is brilliant:
Cabanne, Deetron, Joel Mull, Justin Berkovi, Kozz, Kr!z, Len Faki, Lysergic, Petar Dundov, Regis, Seba Lecompte, Sebastian Kramer, Spacid, Surgeon and T-Quest.
So I basically get to hear LOADS of awesome music at the one party. And I get to see quite a few of my favourite artists at the same party. All for only 23 Euros, which is about $37. WOOHOO!!! A line-up like that here would be over $100
Went to dinner with Davo and Matt last night at Cafe Santone in Lane Cove, and had a great time. The food was exellent. I spent half of last night being excited about Kozzmozz. Davo is already sick of hearing about this. He can’t wait for me to sms him constantly when I’m there, going “SURGEON IS ON” and “JOEL IS ON” and “THERE’S SOOOOOOO MANY PEOPLE HERE” and “REGIS IS YELLING INTO THE MICROPHONE” and “SURGEON’S PLAYING SLEEP ULTRA VIOLET”…. you get the drift 😛
And I’m also going to the live show of Little Britain on 24th October, the night before I come back home. And Monica’s coming with me – YAY!. So I basically start and end my trip doing 2 things I REALLY want to do!!!!! Well, I hope so.
Can’t believe my luck really. It’s been such a stressful time lately, and then this good stuff happens. I hope to complete my itinerary by the end of July. Need to book Malta as soon as possible.
Will be interesting to go to Malta again. Haven’t been in nearly 30 years. Want to go back to the Blue Grotto. And get the ferry to Gozo. When we did that last time, as we got close to Gozo, people started diving into the water from the top deck of the ferry. Wonder if they still do that? There were people playing bingo by the beach. And there was a massive cliff (well, I was 6, so maybe it’s not massive) where I heard my first Maltese swear words!!! I was 17 before I found out what they meant, as nobody would tell me, they were that bad.
I wanted to go to Almeria in Spain to visit friends, but it was going to take 2 flights and 3 trains to get there, over about 2 days. So I’m going to have to wait until I go again (hopefully in 2007). I’m disappointed, but 2 days travel each way would mean I’d get to spend only 2 days there. I wanted to spend a week there. So now I’m going to Brugges and Amsterdam instead.
So now I think I’ll be doing Frankfurt, Ghent, Brugges, Amsterdam, Cologne, back to Frankfurt, Prague, Karlovy Vary, Vienna, Brno, Bratislava, Budapest, Malta, Belfast, Birmingham, London and Portsmouth. Just waiting to find out a few more things to figure out exactly what order I’m going to do it, and if I go to one or 2 more places.
And I can spend Bec’s birthday with her, as I’ll be in London, YAY!
I’m all over the place today. Was supposed to go walking with Monica at lunch, but not too sure what’s happening now. Was going to drinks later with Lisa, Ant, Brad, Hayley and possibly Matt, but will catch up with them earlier, and see if I can catch up with Monica later. She’s going back to Belfast tomorrow, so want to see her before she goes.
I’d better hurry up. It’s so lovely and sunny outside. Oh my gawd, it’s 15 degrees, and it’s going to be 17 degrees maximum. YAY! How warm is that for winter!
