Friday - was spent getting up at 5:30am to head into Singleton where the bf works and where his parentals live. Spent the whole day with his mom…good ole one-on-one time. Usually I'm beyond awkward with this kind of thing but surprisingly, the day passed pretty quick. I was able to make out more than one word at a time and form proper sentences; no sweaty nervous feeling, and even made a couple witty remarks that made everyone laugh. My only minor flaw was spilling rice all over the dinner table…can't help my clumsiness I suppose. No worries though because I got a "don't worry about it, you're already comfortable and fitting in!" My only real complaint of the day was going kangaroo hunting (just to scope them out) I was told there are everywhere in Singleton and over the last 2 weeks I've been here, I have yet to see a single kangaroo, or koala bear for that matter. So disappointing. All in all, it was a great day spent bonding over budgies, checking out mine work sites, driving on the left side of the road (out for a spin with the Mrs! She let me drive!!), and drinking red wine with good conversation.
Saturday - sleeping in and no obligations for the day! Ended up getting our first set of decent pots and pans so I don't have to scrub off burnt crispies at the end of every meal. Also lounged on the couch until friends bombarded us to get up and celebrate a birthday. It was a better night than originally anticipated because I MADE A FRIEND! A couple other girls ended up crashing the party and we exchanged phone numbers! She even invited me for a get together next weekend. Definitely the highlight of my day!
Sunday - Nothing like a lazy hungover Sunday. Couple of the guys came over and worked their magic in the kitchen and made me the best bacon and egg roll ever for breakfast. In return I made them watch Blue Crush, Keeping up with the Kardashians, and Fashion Police. Ordered some dinner and after that, to my surprise the bf put on The Little Mermaid! (obviously I got up and reenacted the choreography from tour) Cant complain about this weekend whatsoever. Now need to rest up for tomorrow, I'm taking the RSA course (equivalent to Serving it Right) so I can serve alcohol at my new job!
Wish me luck!
PS: I will try to take more photos. After all this, I only have two to share.
Update: I PASSED! Let the working adventures begin!
