First week done

Well, it’s my first ‘proper’ week done and dusted at my new job. 6 shifts on already finished. Time flies.

I have to admit, the first few days I was a little unsure about my decision to have picked up everything and moved to (literally) the middle of no where. But, as with any new job, it’s that initial period of learning where things are, how things are done, and how things work that always takes a bit of getting used to. Things are certainly different here.

The past few days have been fantastic, and I have really enjoyed myself. The staff are all so lovely, helpful & welcoming, and in time I will hopefully work my way up to being “in the action”, so to speak.

Cheers to 5 days off before I’m back on for night shifts.

Welcome to Alice. Simpson’s Gap.


Well… we have arrived in Alice Springs! Day 1 done and dusted.

It never rains in Alice.

Of course, it rained when we got here. Nonetheless, it’s blood beautiful. Colour photos are of Mum and I at Simpsons Gap. Also, our hire car is red. Very red.

The black and white photo is from a morning walk today just around our hotel. The locals are very friendly, and she pointed out the rock wallabies. Can you spot them, on top of the mountain?
