    Default Two months on...

    Hey all,

    How you doing? What have I missed?

    Well since I last wrote on here it's been a very up and down month or so. The girl of my dreams turned into one of nightmares and I've not seen her since my trip to Queenstown a month ago (if you've not been to the SOuth Island, make sure its on your list of things to do). I have been in my job a month already, where does the time go eh and have found it really settling to be working and have to say I'm getting on really well with the folks at work, passed my initiation with flying colours. Bought myself a car last weekend, which is a bit of a wreck but it's going to get me from A to B a whole lot quicker (and drier), so I can't complain. Living with my friends Andy/Lyndsey this last couple of months has been awesome, but its time to let them have their home back and start flatting, so this weekend I'm looking at rooms. All in all, I think I've done pretty well in my first couple of months, it certainly hasn't all gone to plan but what doesn't kill us makes us stronger right? And hey, being a single fella in a country such as NZ certainly has its perks, just get up Saturday morning, jump in the car and hit the road, see what this place has to offer :)

    Right then you lovely people, take care of yourself and as always, if you're ever in need of a chat, a coffee or a little something stronger, just give me a tinkle and we'll sort something out.

    Take Care

    Well done, Paul. A good start and a positive attitude despite all the ups and downs. Once you have your own space and gather some friends around you, it will feel like you've been there forever. Keep it up!
