12. Dig to China 

A nice easy day after our Phillip Island day trip. Gaby's grandson was turning 2 so she wanted to go and visit him and daughter, we got invited by her and Nikki so we went along. It was a nice drive to Nikkis, she lived just out of Melbourne in another suburb. Which in fact … Continue reading 12. Dig to China 

11. Phillip Island Day Trip 

Meeting in Melbourne CBD at 7:15am wasn't the best start to the day, but for the trip we had planned it was going to be great! We were on a our way to see the smallest penguins in the world, how exciting!  Our tour took us to a variety of different places on Phillip Island … Continue reading 11. Phillip Island Day Trip 

10. Merrijig 

After surgery I thought I'd gradually recover. I headed for a 3 hour car journey into the middle of nowhere and jumped on a quad bike, (sorry mum). I mean I was relaxing, I had the mountains on one side and a farm on the other. I also just had 3 friends encouraging my to … Continue reading 10. Merrijig 

9. A week in hospital 

I won't bore you all with a day by day hospital round up, so I'll just squish it al into one post. To start with my operation went well, no more appendicitis for me!

8. Wanted: Appendix, Reward if found 

It's safe to say my first over night stay in hospital was a solid 1 out of 10. 2am people moving around, 3am medication, 4am toilet stop, 5am nurses making sure you're okay, 6am just can't sleep cause of pain and 7am breakfast. I really didn't enjoy that. No thank you.  Being attached to a … Continue reading 8. Wanted: Appendix, Reward if found 

7. Quesadillas & hospital trips 

Being dragged across the floor whilst in pain by my best friend wasn't the best start to the day, but looking back it was rather funny.  Booking a doctors appointment was probably the best idea I'd done since being in Austraila. Emily and I needed to get the basics like shampoo and conditioner anyway so … Continue reading 7. Quesadillas & hospital trips 

6. Long Walks and Hot Chocolate 

Having a 21st birthday party on a Saturday night with jet lag makes Sunday mornings the worse thing in the world! And no I wasn't hung over.  I dragged myself out of bed about 1pm and took myself downstairs. I made some toast for myself as well as a cup of tea but I felt … Continue reading 6.
