Ian Duggan

Ian has come back to Perth for a few days for his brother's wedding. We got to see him on Friday, when we visited him and a few friends at the Brisbane and then went to the Court. It was a good night. Was only going to have a couple of drinks. Then I got to the Court and it was Jeremy (Guy who works at The Court) birthday. So I had a few drinks with him. By the time I got home I wanted to go out and PARTAY,but like the good boy I am *sniggers*, I didn't.

It is now Tuesday. I had to work yesterday, but finished early. Ian stayed the night, so I was glad I was able to see him again cause I was s'pose to get yesterday and today off to see him. He leaves today at 6 and wanted to see him off at the airport, but was told I couldn't get those days off. Oh well, can't do anything about it now.

4 days off!

I am having a mini break from work...... So relaxing and do not much at all for a few days.

Bar 138

Ok I'm back at Bar 138 with different circumstances.

Matty asked me back, so I asked for full-time and I get to work with Mary-ann....... so it's all good again..yay.

Candy Boi

This is Ian's ex. I can't say anymore about just makes me laugh.........if I'm ever pissed off or depressed this will be my pick me up....hehehehe

Bar 138

I chose to leave Bar 138 because I wasn't happy there anymore. I feel bad because I had to tell Matty I was leaving (cause he's a good friend of ours), but I always said I wouldn't be at a job I wasn't happy at.

So now this means I will be looking for a new full-time job so we can start working towards our morgages for our house....scary. So I have started looking at Travel Consultant jobs at flight centre ect. It's kinda exciting...... but it's something completely different to what I've done before.

Funny Shit: Bless His Cottons! hehe

Hey All

It's been awhile I know but I have been bloody busy with work (doing 60 hours a week, and hate it). I have just told Connies that I can't work Saturdays so I can have a bit of a lif and get to spend time with my boy. It's been hard not being able to see him as often as I like, but in the next few weeks we can start getting our lives back.

Other big news, Ian has quit his job at CBlu because he hated the bordem and lack of Managerial Responsibility. So he has one more week there then he wants to try and d something different. Away from all the horrible complaining customers. Doesn't know what to do yet.....but it's all good.

I'll be able to put more photo's up when I get more time....there is shit loads on our camera that needs to be uploaded onto the computer then I can show you the small things w have been up to.....

As you all know it was also Ian's birthday a few weeks ago, which gave me the day off and we veged watching movies and thn went to the Kalamunda Pub with his family and a few friends, which was really nice..... I had a bottle of wine (typical).

Other than that we both a happy and well......... We got this humungous bed the other week as well and it is the best investment we ever got. I nearly called in sick the first day we got it so I could just spend all night in it....It is bloody awesome..... it's almost as good as Astrid's Bed....(altho I never got to spend a nigt sleeping in it so or bed is still better, hehe).

We are missing everyone (both in England and People here in Aus......but we will be seeing you guys soon..... yay for us).

It's getting late (and bloody cold), so I'll sign off for now and catch up with this blog in due course............ I'll keep you posted.

Ian's Staff Party

On Friday we went to Ian's Staff PArty and got bloody hammered (unsurprising). It was a good night tho. 20 bucks with all you can drink...I definitely got my money's worth.

Pay Rise

I'm still working my ass off. But I got a pay rise at The Nightclub. I'm so excited.

I got told last night, and it's back paid for the week......which is awesome.

Tuesday night will be taken up by Bingo so can't wait for that. Yay.

Working Hard!

I've been working so much these past few weeks. I finally finished at Burswood. Saturday was my last shift, it was St Pat's Day and bloody hell was it busy. So much fun tho. Everywhere was oput of control that we couldn't do anything about it, so I just got along with it. Everybody that was in the Main Bar ( I was in there for only and hour) were so miserable cause everyone was rude. I got in there and didn't give a shit, it's my last shift do I care. hehe

Bar 138 is going good. I did the afternoon/evening shifts this week. I have to be there at 2 today (running outta time before me bus) finish around 9/10 then be at Connies at 10ish. It's gonna be a long day. I can't wait til Sunday where I can actually get a break. Need to catch up on sleep n Ian.

Ian's parents have gone over to Queensland for a couple of week's, and we have the place to ourselves, but we both are working to much to just relax and enjoy it.

Anyway better go....don't wanna miss the bus.

Matt n Ian go back today!

It suck that you guys have to go back, just means we'll have to come over n see you guys over there..... October I think we organised wasn't it.

Hurry back soon......

Bar 138

I started another job this week. It's at Bar 138, where Matty (old manager at MetroCity, and now friend's own bar) gave me a job to do Breakfasts on Monday, Tuesday n Wednesday(with a chance to work on functions if I'm available, which is cool).

This is the bar, where I move onto after I have done breakfast and have to set up for the day. It's really cool.
This is where I work from 7am til about 10.30 where I give people breaky n coffee. We also do room service fore the Medina Hotel next door.
The only downfall with this job is I have to be up at 5am to catch a bus in time to get to work. Yawn.

I also served Bromwyn Bishop (Politition) and she was a pain. Snobby cow. heheh

This week I have 3 jobs next week I am down to 2 which is cool, I might be able to get some sleep and maybe a social life. Can't wait. Do feel sad about leaving Paddy Hannan's now because all the people there are lovely and they keep telling me that they don't want me to go because I was one of the nice one's that have come to work there. The others never lasted long cause they were crap....... but I'm gonna have to keep in contact with them cause they are awesome.

Matt n Ian

Sorry haven't written much lately. Have been very bus with work n shit. But the other day Matt n Ian came over. They are back from Hamilton Island for a few weeks and we just chilled at home, had a few drinks n froze our bollocks off in the pool. It was great to catch up with them.

We were piss farting around with Ian's underwater camera, now Ian and me want one. It's awesome.

Little Britain Live (again)

We saw Little Britain again tonight at Challenge Stadium. It was still really good. They change a few celebrity names and place names so the Aussie crowd knew who they were talking about....... I'm glad we got to see it again.

Sunday, March 04, 2007

Quit Burswood

I decided to resign at Burswood cause I didn't like serving the customers that were there. The people I worked with are awesome but couldn't stand the customers (which is a major part of the job). I have until St Pat's Day (17th March) until I leave, So I still get to see the people and hopefully keep in contact.

Courtney already has my number..............

So I will be looking for a day job soon..........

My Photo's - Tree's

I took a couple of photo's in the bush around Ian's parents block before the clearing of the block started. And these are the best......enjoy

Clearing Of Block (21st Feb 2007)

We finally got most of the block cleared this week. WE had a sexy Irish Guy clear it for us. He was really nice. But it's finally the step forward we needed to move on with the house. Can't wait for the house to start's so exciting.
The Irish Guy (Chris) let Ian have a go on the machine. Ian was like a little kid at Christmas......

This photo doesn't do Chris any justice, but he was hot. His accent was awesome.....I wanna go to Ireland to speak to all the Irish boy's...... I wanna go now....

It's not quite finished yet. But should be done by Monday (tomorrow).........Finally we are stepping forward now...yay.

Mark n Kevin @ Connies


Last Night at Connies I served Mark (From Westlife) and Kevin (from V). I couldn't believe it. It was very surreal, I asked Mark what he wanted to drink (not seeing his face to start off with), and then he spoke in his soft Irish voice. And I was Like "I know that voice from somewhere!" then I saw his face and I was Like OH MY GOD. I was the only one to pick it up that it was him cause he was very casually dressed. Kevin is so hot. I always fancied him from V.

They were very quiet all night and just chatting with themselves, with a few people from Connies that went up to them every so often to give them a free drink (thanks to me for picking them out).

YAZ hope you are jealous. I was centimetres from Marks face........... Yay for me....

It kept me going for the was really dead.

I wanted a photo but it was very dark in the outside bar.

Block Finally Gets Cleared

The block is finally getting cleared tomorrow. Ian and myself get the fun job of being there to watch them clear it.....exciting stuff...

I'll be taking loads of photo's while Ian is there so he can tell the removalists what else they can clear while they are there...... There is a few bits of land we would like to clear to extend our plans when we finally build the house.......

So finally things are moving on.........

7.30am start I'm not looking forward to tho... I also have to work at Connies tomorrow night so I'll need to have a snooze before work.

Photo's For Newspaper

We are putting a thank you letter in the local rags in Kalamunda, to thank everyone for their support and donations. So we went to the block today to take some photo's for the article.....
Here are the better photo's and we just have to email these to the newspapers for them to chose from.... Hope they are good enough.... they are going to have to do anyway.....


All Monday, I spent it with Hayley. Ian finally got to meet her when we went for lunch at the Foundry at Carousel. It was very nice.....

Ian then had to go to the doctors around 4pm so Hayley and myself bought tickets to see Smoking Aces (wasn't too bad a movie, but was a bit confusing until the end). So while we were filling in time before the movie, we visited her house and got to see her dog Bella. She so small and cute......

We had an awesome day......

Weekend Working

I cut my finger at work at Connies and it hurt like hell..........

Thursday, February 15, 2007

Friday Working

I'm gonna be absolutely knackered by Saturday Morning. I will be working 12-7/8pm @ Paddy Hannan's and then @ Connies from 10pm til close (around 7am after clean-up). So by the time I get home it'll be around 24hours that I would of been awake for.........

I'm Fucking Mad.........

Paddy Hannan's

I finally got a call from the Assistant Manager Tonight at 8.30pm (it's only 28hrs late), to see if I could work tomorrow at 12noon..... not impressed. So I asked about working shifts and stuff, and she also said that we can offer only weekend work, so if I had to work a Friday or Saturday at my other job then they could only offer me 1 shift a week. I'm slightly annoyed about this whole thing. But I'm gonna go tomorrow with an open mind and Hopefully have a proper talk with Kirsty (Assistant) about the hours I'm available. Kirsty was a bit snooty with me aswell, so the vibe I'm getting at the moment isn't good. I'll have to wait and see.

Connections - Cocktail Learning

Last Night I finally got a call at 6.30pm saying that I'll be working at 9 that night (abit inconvenient, but oh well need the money). So all was good and I worked outside again (which has it's good and bad points), but I got a chance to learn some cocktails and practice them, which is cool. It feels weird cause I only know how to drink them not make them (except for a small few).

Last Night I made an Elevator, Illusion and a Fruit Tingle.

ELEVATOR: In a Shaker - 1 Shot Chambord
1 Shot Vanilla Absolute Vodka
Fill Shaker with Ice

Shake Vigorously

In Glass - Fill Glass with Ice
Strain Shaker over Ice until Half full
Top with Red Bull

(This cocktail was the best of the 3. It is very tasty)

Illusion: In a Shaker - 1 Shot Malibu
1 Shot Midori Melon
Fill with Ice
Top with Pineapple

Shake Vigorously
Leave In Shaker with a few straws.

(Boondi, this would be the shaker for you, it's like fruit juice. Not Bad but very sweet.

Fruit Tingle: In Glass - Fill With Ice
1 Shot Blue Curacao
1 Shot Vodka
Top with Lemonade
Dash of Grenadine in Middle

Should have a 2 tone effect, Pink & Purple/Blue.

(Didn't try this, but apparently it's not too bad. It's like a lolly (sweet for English people) we sell in Aus.)

You should give these a try, especially the Elevator, that was awesome.

Wednesday didn't bring a good crowd. I ended up getting about $7 tips and there were a few people I had to cut off because they were fucked. It wasn't as enjoyable as the weekend because of that. I can't wait til Friday/Saturday so the crowd will hopefully be much better....... Nice and Friendly.

2nd Day Orientation at Burswood

Had an awesome day until I had to speak to the bitch at Paddy Hannan's (where I'll be working). All she is is a Head Bar Person but I tried to tell her about Connies and hw they are wanting me to work atleast 1 night over the weekend (Friday/Saturday) and they girl just turned around and said "Well you are going to have to work here. Your expected to." I wasn't impressed. First I was looking for a full-time job and they give me casual. Second of all, they can't expect me to give up a job which can offer me 40 hours over 4 days (if I want) to work only 1 or 2 shifts over the weekend to cover them. And thirdly, she made a comment saying that I don't know why they are still hiring for here because we have enough Full-time/part-timers to fil in the roster anyway. Then we asked what shifts we are doing, and she came out with it doesn't look like you are working this week cause you aren't on the rosters.

So I haveto speak to the assistant manager tomorrow and talk to her about the rosters and Connies and shit. ANd I think I wanna say something about this girl..... why does she think she can talk to us like that. I mean we are only just starting out and I was asking questions about the place and it felt like I was inconveniencing her. They other guy that was there with me on orientation looked at me at one stage and looked at me like "who does she think she is?". So I'll see how the talk goes tomorrow with the manager person. Otherwise, I think I might just stick with Connies. Burswood has all the perks that anyonewould want and the career opportunities but if that's what it's gonna be like then screw that.... I wanna work and have fun....

30 Seconds To Mars - The Kill

This song is awesome. I have only heard alittle of the album, but this song is my fav at the moment. The lead singer is Jared Leto (former Mr Cameron Diaz, before Justin got his hands on her and then dumped her ass). When I first saw the music video, I couldn't believe it was him......

But you need to have a listen to this song, if you haven't already...

My Jobs

I had an awesome weekend at Connections. Friday was opening night, and first official night working in the club. It was manic. To start off with, I had no idea how to use the tills or where any of the alcohol was kept or anything. I was just shoved in the deep end to fend for myself. After about and Hour of struggling, I got used to it and had an awesome night. I got $91 in tips (which is awesome). Saturday night was completely different. It was a lot quieter. I was working in the outside bar with Ken, which was has a completely different feeling than inside. They have chillout music and the mood is more relaxed. It was a beautiful night outside not to cold (until about 5.30am when the temp dropped alittle but nothing to outrageous). You also have the view of the city at night from the rooftop, which I just love. I really enjoyed working outside, except for the fact that there isn't a post mix pump outside so we had to open small bottles of mixers for every drink, and they were kept at the bottom of the fridges, so my legs were killing by the end of the night. I did more squats in one night than a personal trainer would make you do in a weeks training....... If I keep working outside I'm gonna get killer legs... hehehehe. Also because it was pretty quiet, I pretty much was left to myself to run the bar by myself. Ken kept going on breaks and was just around if I needed him (which was good). So on Day 2 I was looking after a bar pretty much by myself....... I think they are glad how quickly I picked things up, and don't have to worry about to much with me... I just need to have more practice before I'm really comfident....(need more practice with shooters and cocktails...then I'll be fine....I hope)....

Also, today was my first day of Orientation at Burswood. It was awesome. I met this girl who is fab... we just got along really well.....(meeting her for breakfast tomorrow morning before the second day of orientation...) which is cool...........we just kept piss farting around and chatting all day. The videos were a bit boring and because I have only had four hours sleep each night since Friday Night.. I felt like I was gonna fall asleep..... but I got through it ..... all is good... can't wait to sleep tonight hopefully will get atleast 8 hours.... fingers crossed. I get to see where I work tomorrow and see who I have to work with and stuff..... We have half the day with the big group from today and then we all get separated into the different departments that we are working in (So i have to say goodbye to Hayley then) and we get alittle orientation for the places we are working in.... can't wait... I'm all excited about that.........

So I'm finally gettting my life back on track... Ian's still looking for a job. Has applied for quite afew jobs and is still waiting on replies...but he's happy and missing me when I'm at work.... Ah Bless....

So all is good in Sunny Aus.

Australia Day (26th January)

Our first Australia Day in 5 years. It was an awesome day and we drank enough for the past few years we was great. It started at our temp house with swimming in the pool. The family popped around before they headed of to Uncle Andrew's and Aunty Mary's cause they have a view of the city. And we went to Langley Park (On the Perth Foreshore).

Christmas 2006

Finally, I have uploaded the photo's onto our computer. So here is an update of somethings that have happened since we've been back.This is Ian's family and Partners at Uncle Andrew and Aunty Mary's place for Christmas dinner. We also played SingStar and Kate n Helen's Playstation (and was the cause of us buying one and some SingStar Games). Here is Joanne and Elsie attempting to sing.
