Before we left Australia I kept going on about how I was going to start a blog, and I know it took me long enough to get it going but . . . . .
Here it is, better late than never!
I will try and post some of the photos from our Scottish Adventure in March, when we first arrived in the UK, but you will have to be patient, we're working a fair bit at the moment & we are both sick with the flu so we will be a little slow on the up-take for a little while.
Also to top it all off we will be moving house (THANK GOD!!) in the next few days. As Im sure most of you would know from my ramblings on facebook since we arrived here in Brentwood the 'Staff House' which we currently reside has been a little 'interesting' to say the least.
We took a few photos on our arrival, which I am happy to share with you all . . . .

After all the panic of being homeless after the 22nd of April and emailing all the local real estate agents and people offering rooms in share houses, we found out from our managers at The Nags Head that they have made it possible for us to move into the room they have above the pub itself, which is awesome!
Sooooo . . . . earlier this week Halz and I went to work on our day off and cleaned out the room above the pub, ready to move into. At this stage all that is left in the room is a pile of old junk and broken deep fryers that need to be disposed of . . . . once that crap is gone we can move in. And honestly, the sooner the better! Hopefully we will be in by the end of the week, fingers crossed :)
I know it all sounds pretty sad so far, but I would rather end on a positive note, and that would be our amazing pub! Although the staff accommodation is quite ghetto, the pub happens to be the polar opposite! The Nags Head is one of the most beautifully decorated pubs I have ever been in, the atmosphere in the place is just so warm and inviting. The perfect place for a romantic cosy dinner for 2 or a lovely family dinner. Take a look at our great website:
Im enjoying working in the bar, sometimes I get a little surprised with the drink choices, like Blush Cyder, Guinness & Black current and larger shandys (British men dont know what real men drink, clearly) and the looks on peoples faces when I open my mouth never gets old. LOVE IT
Speaking of work, I think its time I get myself ready for my shift. - WoOoOo
