OKIE DOKIE SMOKIE!!
I have no idea what the last post is...and im too lazy to check. PLUS i dont wanna sit in maccas forever. sooo, here goes zee quick update!
We left melbourne about a week ago to go make some money up in Mildura. It was the cutest 'small town'. Had a pretty big CBD, but still a small town feel plus lots of farms. Luckily farms are our forte and we got a job pikcing grapes. Too bad we suck at that tho. we were making at best 70 bucks a day. and after food, booze, and 135 mandatory accommodation (even tho we have a car to sleep in)-this really wasnt the place for us. But the week we spent there was super fun. shared a house with 12-15 ppl. and the house next door was the same kinda backpacker deal...we all went to work together and hung out after work. there is a bridge about 300m down the road over the murray river and YES i am invisible and YES i jumped off. later, i found it its super dangerous and not a smart idea, so that was the first and last time. any regrets? NO! muahah, but i did lose my very expensive ring during the jump. Its about a 20 meter drop.
Our landlord was an absolute gangster. she over-charged, and she was really rude and blamed all her 'bad luck' on exterior forces. it was incredibley difficult to try and not get on her bad side. Every night that ppl drank, ppl just trashed the place, because then vicki (landlord) would have to play to fix it. bahaha, everyone hated her.
So, after she scammed some money off us, we took a duvet to even the table a little bit and headed back south to the great ocean road. we are now living in a semi-unfurnished house, with no kitchen. but its FREE FREE FREE!!! woo hoo!! and there is a fire place, and a spring matress and a COUCH!!
We are working on a beautiful dairy farm with 600-700 cows. His land is gorgeous with all the rolling hills and whatnot. We are getting paid like KINGS AND QUEENS, and hopefully will be settled here for 2 months. then we want to head NORTH because it is fall now, and go work on a pearling boat for a month. ISNT IT ALL SO EXCITING?!
james demanded that i upload photos...but i really cant be bothered. NEXT time, i PROMISE!!
much love to everyone, and im switching my phone service to a better, yet more expensive provider so that i have service in my HOME. (i like that word, home:))
We dont know when we will be home yet, i will be here till at least august, and james...well who knows these days, i expect him to stay till at least june. but dont quote me!

oh ps...for those of you who HAVENT worked on a dairy farm...i arrived at work at 5am, and milked nearly 600 cows. all of which love to shit randomly and it sprays everywhere-example my face, hair, and clothes. And fresh cows sometimes dont like to get milked (a vaccum on your tit? how lovely....) so they kick sometimes.
AND i get to ride a fourwheeler everywhere, and feed calves. but thats just my first day. james is practicing stuff on the tractor and milking the evening shift.
BUT SO FAR I LOVE IT!
okay bye for real!
