Finally got internet after 3 weeks! Bloody hell, I didn't expect it to take that long, I was thinking like 3 days :-/
It's been a hassle trying to find a gym here. There's the university gym which I initially planned on joining but there is just no parking. They've redone all the roads since I was last here and got rid of a shitload of the street parking so if there is no where to park, there is no gym. At the mo we're going to a gym which is pretty good near my Mum's place - but it's like 20km away, so it's a bit of a drive and with gas so expensive it won't be worth it in the long run. We just joined for a month, so when that's up we're going to try another gym closer to us for a week to see how that goes. Gosh I hope we find one soon.... I haven't had much luck with gyms this year :-/
Daisy is great. She is fully toilet trained now!! Unless she gets on the couch - for some reason she thinks it's her second toilet so we don't let her on it now. When we let her out in the kitchen and lounge - no problems. She follows me around, comes when I call her and she jumps on my lap and eats salad out of my hand - she is an adorable pet. I just love her!
We also got a cat, which I'm not very fond of. It's Matt's pet. Her name is Freddie (we got her from the SPCA, an animal shelter here and they had already named her). I've never had a cat in my life and I've always been in the situation where I've hung around them for a little and liked them but could always give them back (kinda like kids.... LOL). Living with one is hard though, it would be better if we could let her outside but we live on a main street with busy traffic. Nevermind!

That's all my training for now. Apart from the 15 minutes on the rower, I've done basically NO cardio since I got here. I'm thinking of getting up early tomorrow and going for a run... don't know if that will happen... I want to though!
Work is going pretty good - a lot more relaxed than my old job which is great!
I think that's all for now! Good to be back :-)
