Regarding farm work not much has changed since the last blog, still doing vine training and got to a heat of 44 degrees one day which is just a crazy amount of heat!
Christmas is a weird feeling at the moment as with heat that I am living with daily in Mildura it is crazy to think it is December and that Christmas is coming up. Got an advent calendar, which they do not put foil in - weird!, but a lot of the time the chocolate just melts which is funny. Got some tinsel around the bunk bed and a little 30cm christmas tree up in the room, Also the snow flakes decorations that mum sent in her christmas card are also hanging from the top of my bed
Went into the CBD in Melbourne they got lots of christmas decorations up and the shop called Myer, which is like Debenhams, had christmas decorations up like a nativity play but very long queue to get close to seeing the details.
Claire decided that she wasnt too bothered about doing the farm work to get another year visa in Australia as she would have to use it pretty much straight away due to her age, and this wasnt something that she was looking to do! And lets be honest farm work is no walk in the park!!!!
However it is important to me to get another year out here so I need to finish this 88 days of farm work off by the end of this visa to get a chance of another year here. Therefore Claire decided to go back to the UK and spend christmas with her family which i think is very cute
One good thing with farm work is getting over fears of insects, spiders etc -- however when a massive spider was crawling up my arm probably was not saying that then! Get to see wild Kanagroos bouncing along on farm or on the roads on way to work. Pretty amazing in my eyes
