Now I’m all systems go for Australia I’m trying to look after my pennies – which means nights stuck in. This isn’t a big problem though, since most of my friends don’t go out much now they’ve all
moved to South America, I mean - now they have priorities like kids and long term partners.
At the minute it’s only really a drag where I’d normally go the pub to watch the football. I’m sure I’ll get used to it, it is for the greater good after all.
I could really do without 4 family birthdays, a cousins wedding and a mates baby’s christening in the space of 10 days though. So my saving has already gone to pot this month and the month is less than a day old. Inconsiderate gits.
I have however splashed some cash on tickets to The Ashes cricket tests in Sydney (days 1 and 2 cricket fans). I’m not the biggest cricket fan, but it seemed like too good an opportunity to miss and I might not get to do it again.
I’ve also been looking at other stuff that’s going on whilst I’m there, I quite fancy trying to get to a music festival, I know Big Day Out is at the end of January but I’m not liking my chances of getting a ticket. U2 have just announced they are playing in Sydney a few days after I get there too – we all know Bono is a proper knob – but I quite like U2 live, so I’m going to see if I can go to that.
