My Mr and Mrs

Well guys one week ago today I married the girl of my dreams. We left Australia two and a half weeks ago for our trip of a life time and it definitely hasn't dissapointed. We saw the sights of San Fransisco and Oakland and then had the most insane, out of control week in Vegas. We only just made it to the wedding but it was absolutely perfect! Everything went smoothly and the location was amazing. We decided on the Valley of Fire after seeing photos of it on the net and in person it didn't dissapoint. There were a few anxious moments where all we could see were boring brown hills but once we dropped into the valley and saw the stunning red rock formations all the nerves calmed. The day was amazing.

I am writing now on a train from New York to Philadelphia. Philly is the next stop on our trip across the east coast of the US. New York was unbelievable. There was so much to see and everything was awe inspiring. We did as much as we could in the six days we were there but you could spend a life time there and not see everything. The highlights were definitely our horse a carriage ride through central park and and ferry out to see the statue of liberty in blue skies. It will be interesting to see what Philly will bring to the table.

Well that's all for now. Byes.

My All New and Improved

Well after Five long years of dots I have decided to change the layout of the old blog here. Change is a hard and daunting thing sometimes especially when you are changing something that has always been the same. I was so sick of the same old website but I didn't want to change what I had started all those years ago. Now that the change is here I realized I should have done it a long time ago and that change is the best thing possible. Move on and move forward people. In the next few months my whole life is going to change so why would I really dwell on something this minor. Still ironing out the kinks but let me know what you think?

My Plans to Plan

Recently Domi and I have been very unexciting people. We have been busy being hermits and planning the rest of our trip/wedding/honeymoon. I have to say it has been fun though. We have booked nearly everything that we can for our trip and had some great fun doing it. The newest bookings we have made are our Disneyland tickets, which Domi was more excited than a little kid about and also we booked tickets to a American Ice Hockey game in Washington.

We have also been trying to save money but have been very unsuccessful in the last couple of weeks due to the fact that we have found so many cheap places to have dinner. Last week we ate out 5 out of the 7 nights. We have found $10 Schnitzel nights, $10 salt and pepper squid nights, cheap tea night at IKEA, lol, and also a couple of other restaurants which seem to want to cook for us cheaper than we can buy the food from the grocery store. It is really a tough life we lead.

Bye now.

My Computer Hatred

This last month has been hell for me for one reason only. My computer shit its self and decided to die. Painful, is all I can say. There is nothing that annoys me more in this word than trying to fix a computer. Somehow we got a virus and that lead to not being able to even get the thing to turn on. So yes it has been a struggle but I think its back to normal. Hopefully otherwise I am going to throw it at something.

Today though is very exciting because today is the last day in my lifetime that I will be 24. Tomorrow friends I will be older by just a little bit and I will turn 25. I completely and utterly cant believe I have hit this point in my life. I feel like I have been very lucky in friendships, love and in life in general and in last 24 years. I hope things continue in this fashion and even though the last 24 years have definitely not been easy, they have been enjoyable and I think that's the only wish I have for the next 24. So heres to getting older people and enjoying life!!

My Time Limit

I get the feeling lately that I have been burning the candle at both ends. Everything has been crazy. It all started with work. Now for those of you who don't know, work is a huge part of my life and lately it has been ruling my life. My parents have started building a new house for themselves so we have been working on that as well as trying to get all of our other work done as well. Now normally work slows down a little in Winter but this year things have sped up and with the extra house to be built its been almost too much work.

The highlights of the last few weeks have been booking our flights over to America and finally booking most of our trip. Domi and I really can't wait. It is still 5 months away but god I can't wait to get on that plane at Adelaide airport and to jetset away on our holiday/honeymoon. I have also spent time with good friends lately. People that understand me and how I am at the moment. Sometimes its hard when I am stuffed from work but still stressing about the next day to make conversation and be enthusiastic but its easy with some.

Well just another quick post because I am going to bed. Have fun people and now pictures!

This is a photo of the crane loading concrete panels onto our truck. It is 8 tonne of concrete 10 meters above a 2 million dollar crane. 

 This is stage one of putting up the panels. We still have 25 left to lift!!!
This just made me laugh. Gravy??? Really???

My Well of a Time

The last couple of weeks have been pretty hectic at work and if you haven't noticed by now, work is a huge part of my life. The weekend was different. It was very relaxed. Domi and I caught up with my parents Friday night to talk trip plans and organize things for the wedding. We went all out and had toasted sandwiches and it was just nice. The weekend was really family based actually and Saturday night we went out to Magill to see Domi's mum and her new boyfriend. Its really great that she has finally found someone and they are really good together.

The rest of the weekend was, well, I'm not going to lie, spent playing video games with Domi. It was good though and I think we both needed it.

This week again has been full on already. At the moment I'm working on a job putting stormwater pipes and sumps in for a new building at the Morphetteville race course. I have been there for a bit over a week now and it has rained every day. Now rain after finishing would be no dramas but while you are trying to connect down pipes and different old connections makes life a pain in the ass. The pipes we are putting in are 450mm so when it rains there is a lot of water... Everywhere. It hasn't been too bad a job really and I am working for another company so I turn up in the morning and if it has all turned to shit over night I just dig it all out again and away we go. One surprise is what we have found in the ground. We have found all the usual things like gas pipes, water pipes, fire services, fibre optic cables and power cables. We even found some odd things like old rubbish and horse shoes but I was pretty blown away when we found an old well!?! Definitely what I was expecting to scratch my excavator bucket over.

Bye now.

My Addiction

I have recently realized that I have a huge addiction to coffee and all things caffeine. Now I know I'm not exactly standing in front of a group of people saying "Hi, my name is Phil, and I listen to hair metal and am a Meth addict" but hey give me some credit for outing it. Now I have always loved a coffee, especially in the morning but lately I think I have taken it a bit to far with energy drinks. I seemed to get sucked in at the service station or shop and buy two instead of one due to the cheap price but always end up drinking both instead of just the one. I guess its a better addiction than some but I am still weary. I had the thought about participating in dry July but instead of not drinking alcohol I thought of giving up coffee/caffeine but to be honest I don't know if I could. The giving up alcohol would be a piece of cake. I don't really drink that much. Sometimes on the weekend but hardly during the week at all so I think I will just forget I ever thought about the caffeine thing and do that.
