Australia Day 2008

Today is my anniversary in Poland, one year today. I can't believe it has been this long. Not in a bad way or anything, just the the calendar will start clocking over dates I have been here before.
I looked thru Google images and found a few that mean Australia Day to me.
I have been corresponding with someone of late and I am hoping we have not got our wires crossed, I want to confirm that I have said nothing negative, quite the contrary, I am just consistent and sincere as ever. I will just have to wait and see if I that is acknowledged.

The wind here tonight is kicking up to gale force, I seriously think the roof will come off, the rain and wind outside have turned my quiet street into a howling wind tunnel. I will sleep with my bedcovers over my head tonight.
Today I went to my bosses house for an obligatory lunch and it wasn't as bad as I expected. We spoke about business plans for the future of his cafe and exporting concerns. I was amazed that all my reading over the last year actually came in handy as I spouted facts and concepts from things I had read in Harvard Business Review - if you aren't into it, it can be a dry and pointless read, but because my one to one students like that kinda stuff I just fell into it all...
My house is spotlessly clean and I had a nice big meal. Today I signed all the certificates for all my students and looked at all the familiar names and remembered the faces.
Next Friday I am going to hit a bar with some friends for a big celebration. (Dunno what that is, but I am up for it!)
Working every night the next 2 weeks and I have to cover another English teacher. Speaking of which I hear there is another in town now. Good.

Cheers to all my dear friends back home celebrating the great day with a beer and a sunburn. Ah the old life, I sorta miss it sometimes.

Well I have 6 months to make a difference so wish me luck! Obi
