Claire got her Visa
Got injured
I passed my first ever exam
Got better
Moved house

Long Version…

Once back from Europe Claire and I lodged her temporary visa application (meaning if they where in a good mood she could stay in the country indefinably)

I went back to work where I’ve been for the last 5 months. Just climbing on weekends.
I sent “Immaculate Misconception” 26 which makes 3 26’s now it’s been slow progress, seems my body won’t keep up with my mind.

Shortly after sending that i flashed a 24 that i had done before but in the process injured my finger and had to take a month off for it to heal. So I worked 21 days straight, accruing enough flex to pay for my next 2 trips and eating too many pies.

After a month off too a little bit to get back into it but feeling about 80% now so time to climb some more.
Just after xmas i did my first sky dive, then 2 more and that was it. Sat around the drop zone for 3 days and wasn’t able to jump due to weather/wind. Since then i have run out of money so jumping is on the back burner for a little while. It’s insanely addictive though, just expensive, can’t wait to do it again šŸ™‚

My bro came down for 10 days over xmas, was awesome to spend some time with him again, took him for a few climbs, which he crushed šŸ™‚ We spend new years eve and my Friends Paul and Rossie. Everyone had the required amount to drink. The next day my brother flew back to new castle and i got a text “Ey bro i don’t even remember saying good bye to you, i through up on myself…” Good times šŸ™‚

Back at work over xmas i resumed the study i had started last year and after filling my brain with too many useless facts like
Titan Chess which is included in Windows 7 is not included in all version of Windows 7. Titan Chess requires Windows Aero. Areo is only supported in Windows Home Premium and above
Rabble rabble rabble………..
I passed my first ever exam 75% (needed 70 to pass)

The next day (5 months from lodgin) Claire got her Visa which means
1. we can stay in the country and
2. I am no longer a sugar daddy šŸ™‚
3. We’ll have more money to spend on things we don’t need but must have.

Then the day after that John got his citizenship and we have a shindig to celebrate. Some more than others šŸ™‚

I’ve moved to west Hobart now. Living again with Giles (pass me a Scalpel) Barrington, Kirke (The only redeeming factor of Denmark) and Murphy (Goat Balls) the parrot. It feels like home already šŸ™‚

Next week i start a month off work and finger’s crossed i don’t injure myself i plan to climb in tassie for the whole time and hopefully climb Frenchman’s.

Oh yeah i did some topos for thesarvo – More to come when i stop being lazy šŸ™‚

Hey I resent that Denmark comment. I live in Denmark. Surely that is a reedeming feature. The beer is cheaper here than in Aus too.
