long time no blog!

Hope everyone went okay in their exams- how's the celebrating been going so far? I haven't been doing too much except for a couple 21sts and some dog washing! I am really sad, all this time and I seriously have nothing to talk about. Looking forward to going to hong kong! Still looking for the cashola in order to go though, should probably do that soon.. Other than that there hasn't been much going on. Dramas with Dan but I don't really want to disclose what they are, just happy that they are over with now and we are moving forward. Got my e-ticket for Europe! I know its still 5 months away but its so exciting! I'm getting really psyched up for it! Don't think I've said where I'll be going but so you guys get ultra jealous this is a mini itinerary.

Over 14 days we will be going to

Paris- city tour: Place de la Concorde, Champs Elysees, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre, Mont martre and Sacre Coeur (no idea what half of those places are but i'm sure they will be awesome!)

Swiss Alps: Lauterbrunnen, Jungfrau Mountain

Pisa: Leaning Tower, Baptistery, Cathedral

Florence: walking tour with local guide, Spanish Steps, Trevi fountain, Piazza Navona, Church of the Capuchin Monks (i wonder if they look like monkeys!) and the Colosseum

Vatican City and St Peter's Basilica

Verona- Roman Forum, Juliets Balcony

Venice: Vaporetto ride on the Grand Canal, walking tour with local Italian guide: St Mark's Square and Basilica, the Bridge of Sighs, Doges Palace, the Campanile, the Rialto Bridge plus a traditional lace making display

Tyrol: adventure activities! skiing anybody?

Rhine Valley: visit the village of St Goar, stay in a 12th century castle!

Amsterdam: Bicycle and walking tour of Amsterdam seeing Dam Square and the Royal Palace

This is all going to be during Winter though so i'm not sure how great it will be trudging through snow, all i know is that I'm going to shopping heaps when I'm in London coz they have a heap of stuff that we don't have in Perth. Also we have 6 nights in London and a week in a coastal city called Torquay (where they made the show "Fawlty Towers"- i think that's how you spell it) so I'll be gone for a month! It's gonna be the longest trip I wouldve taken without the parental units.

Photos of events are on facebook if you wanna have a look =)

Other than that, hope to catch up with everyone soon, text me if you are bored because chances are I will be bored at the same time and we can do something to ease the boredom together!

billie the cat and the babydogs S2

Introducing Billie the cat......

Last week Billie came to my house, just out of nowhere! Our family has decided to adopt her because we think that she is a stray that has been hanging around our house for a while. It was so sad =( she was really skinny and absolutely ridden with fleas. The fleas are gone now and she's getting some fat on her which is good. Still have to take her to the vet but other than that I hope we will get to keep her if she doesn't have a microchip. She's still a little kitten so she may have been dumped if the owner didn't want her. She's soooo gorgeous at nighttime when her eyes are big and innocent. She loves cuddles and playing with her mouse wand thingy which has a mouse attached to a string, its so cute watching her chase it around. Also she's grown to my dad, he's teaching her to jump over his arms which is quite cute. Cats can jump really high!

As for the baby dogs, they aren't so baby anymore! I struggle trying to pick them up, they both weigh around 20kg now i think which is fairly heavy. They'll get to about 40-50kg though so they still have quite a big of growing left to do. Here's an update picture of them

Apollo is on the left and Tank is on the right. Taking votes as to which is cuter!! Personally I think Tank is but Apollo is gorgeous because when you sit down he'll come and sit on ur lap and snuggle up to you and fall asleep--- soooo adorable!!

Check this out for a "before" picture

Anyways that's all for now, good luck for your exams!!
