Good Jobs and Ice Cream

10th October

sunny 27 °C

Today was Ashleys Interview at the Rocks at Circular Quay, it was my day off from the 'gourmet sandwich' shop and so i said that i'd go with him. We were ready at ten so we decided to head into town. When we got into circular Quay we hadn't got far before we saw a huge crowd of people, being nosey we decided to watch too. It was a guy (called Joules) who was a street performer, we watched him swallow a sword, juggle fire whilst on a tightrope on one leg and walk through a pole. He was wild (ashleys description), and he was pretty funny too... shouting comments at passers by. par example, a group of workers went past in blue uniforms and he shouted too them 'Don't you just hate it when you find you've got up and dressed exactly the same as all your friends.' haha, maybe you had to be there!

After that we went for some lunch in Bakers Oven, with a dutch guy who was really shocked that i had milk in my tea and then nearly died when i asked for extra, and he saw how much i had in tea!

We then went to the rocks shops which were pretty touristy, but tacky tourist things are funny so we searched them in hope of presents funny enough to send home, we kind of suceeded. It was now around 2pm so Ashley left me alone to go to his interview, but he wasnt long and by about ten past he was back out again. He cameout smiling which i guessed was a good sign, he told me he'd got the job and that the guy was kool, (again) the money was good and the hours were flexible, sounded perfect, so when he told me that the guy said that i could have a job if i wanted i thought i should. This way we'd both be together and have shifts off together and not be left alone at night on our own, so sounded good. So i picked up the forms and we both had jobs, first thing was a training day on Thursday.

After that we were very happy, so we decided to celebrate by eating ice-cream. We went to a shop where there was a big fat jolly ice cream man, who was a very happy chappy. we got talking to him, and he told us that he knew Palm Cove, the place we were going to next, and he told us it was unbelievable, that it was a gorgeous part of the world, so that was good, and the ice-cream was good too! We sat and ate the ice cream watching boats come in and out of the harbour and listening to a crazy opera Guy.

After that we decided we were too happy to go home so got on a ferry to Darling Harbour, on which Ashley noticed an angle of the Harbour bridge that he had not yet captured, so he had to get that, but i dont think its going to win any prizes!

Thank God the battery Ran out or there would have been more...
Darling Harbour's pretty cute, its like a small version of sydney harbour, with loads of shops, not many good ones and loads of good bars and restaurants. We picked up a few brochures to pick my Birthday cruise from and then headed home.

At home we watched Simpsons, family guy and futurama, because now i think we're addicted, and then we fell asleep... perfect!
