it snowed last night!

i'll put some pics up once i get internet sorted at home.. but last night at about 6pm it was snowing. it didn't last very long and it was all gone from the footpaths and roads this morning.. but there's still some on the grass near Uni.

it's been a while since i've sent an update, so here's a brief overview..
got to manchester, walked round for 5 hours looking at share houses, found one and moved in. It didn't turn out to be as good as I had hoped (lots of extra people at the house when my housemate was at work!, heating set WAY too high, leaky toilet (ewww), and broken tv that could only be LOUD! - not good for sleeping in the next room.) Anyway, after a week of that, I decided to find somewhere else and saturday i moved into a place that's only 15 mins walk from Uni (the other was 35 mins - which was better for fitness, but not for sleeping in..). I'll be living with a girl who is also a vege (that eats fish every now and then).. i'll let you know in a week or so how it's going.. she's been away for the weekend, which has meant i could settle in without being in anyone's way. :)

i've also got a cold. :( I think the heating in the last place didn't help (30 degrees inside, 10 degrees outside!).. and the boyfriend of my last house mate has got the flu too (not sure who gave it to whom). anyway, i had a lazy day yesterday and feel better for the super early night. might try to do it again tonight. :)

that'll do for now.. i must do some work. hopefully i'll have internet at home soon and will be able to MSN or Skype to everyone.

  1. Great to hear from you Dayna. I'm glad you've found somewhere that sounds much better and 15 minutes walk is enough especially when it's time to go home and its snowing! Taxis would be cheaper too.
    I've just been offered the chance of working three days instead of five and only losing a half hour paid. Sounds good to me and they've given me the day to consider. I can then do casual work at the Leisure Centre when needed as long as it's Tuesday or Thursday. Sharon will do Tuesday and Thursday at kinder and will be prepared to relieve if needed on other days. Friday is the 3 year old group. So far only 9 of them for a couple of hours.
    I did get to Lisa's today so Jared now is sleeping on the floor. He's ready for the bunk beds when Poppy can get them there. We didn't get any of Carolynn's room done but did undecorate the Christmas tree that was taking up space in her room and cleaned up the carport a bit.
    Two puppies are happy living on a farm at Heathcote. They have been named Bonnie and Clyde. Hope the other five find homes soon as they are growing and hungry.
    Slowly the area outside the kitchen is emptying in preparation for Dad attacking the ceiling. That will be a messy job but needs doing.
    Hope all is going well for everyone. Blog soon.
    Lots of love
