Stephanie’s Spa Brisbane – Review

My Christmas present from my family back home was a spa day at Stephanie’s Spa in Brisbane.

Yes I know my family are amazing!

Firstly I would like to say that I wouldn’t really call this place a Spa, a Spa in my eyes is somewhere with a swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, lots of different types of steam rooms and saunas which this is not that, so if you are looking for one of those kinds of spa days then I would suggest going elsewhere.

This place is more of a beauty clinic where you pay for individual treatments rather than a spa day package where you make your own way around the place and pick and choose what rooms to go into.

So for my Christmas present my family got me the ‘All Wrapped Up’ treatment which included the below…

They also got me time in the steam temple so I had a full day of pampering.

I found it quite difficult to find the spa at first as it is actually part of a hotel which if I would have read the booklet they sent me then I would have known this rather than using google maps to direct me and getting lost, but that’s my fault.

Once I arrived the staff were really friendly and also seemed to be excited for me, after all I was going in for about 6 hours’ worth of pampering so what’s not to get excited about?

I had to fill in some forms and pick out my colours for my manicure and pedicure and then I was taken into the dressing room where they provided me with towels, a robe, some shoes and some disposable underwear. I was asked to get changed and then go and wait in the lounge.

While I was waiting in the lounge on the very comfortable chairs I helped myself to the complimentary drinks of rose water and herbal teas. They also had a large range of books, magazines and newspapers for me to choose from while waiting for my pampering to begin.

I was in there for around 5minutes before I was welcomed by the receptionist who took me over to the steam temple. She asked me to take a seat in there while she explained what would happen. I was given 3 bowls of mud/clay. One for my face and neck, the second for my upper body and the third for my waist down. I was also given a dry exfoliating sponge and a glass of water.

I was told to dry body brush myself and then apply the mud/clays to the specific areas and then sit back and relax when the steam began. It felt very luxurious and relaxing as I had the temple all to myself. The room filled with steam and I lay back and listened to the relaxing music whilst looking at the star like lights on the top of the ceiling. After about 30mintutes a light mist of water sprayed over the room and the lights came on slowly which was my cue to hop in the shower to remove all of the mud/clay.

The steam temple alone was incredible and my skin felt so soft after all of the clays I had used, I couldn’t stop touching my skin! I give the steam temple 5 bees!

Once I came out of the steam temple I made my way back to the lounge where I helped myself to more complimentary drinks and it wasn’t long before I was welcomed by my therapist for the day who asked me to follow her to the treatment room. The treatments I had in here were so good, I had a full body exfoliation with dry body brushing to begin with then an exfoliating scrub followed by a masque and then I got – ‘All  Wrapped Up’ in body foil and lay there relaxing while I received a hand and scalp massage. It was pure heaven.

After the treatments were done I had to go back in the shower to wash off all of the exfoliation and masque and then got back on the bed where she applied some body moisturiser and then I had a facial done, I nearly fell asleep while all of this was going on as I do remember hearing myself make some snoring noises which woke me up.

After all this pampering it was time for lunch where I went back to the lounge and had some champagne and chocolates brought out to me and a Caesar salad. Even the food in this place was amazing, the salad was covered in the crispiest saltiest most delicious bacon I have ever tasted. Once I had finished my food and chocolates I was then greeted again by my therapist and taken through to the manicure area.

The manicure and pedicure took around 2 hours and I was sat in a massage chair for the whole time, I had paraffin wax masques on my hands and feet and lots of filling a massage and finally painting of my nails. They looked the best they have ever looked.

After this it was time to end my pampering session and I went and got changed in the dressing room and then sat in the lounge until my nails dried.

I would 100% recommend this place for anyone wanting to indulge in some treatments, everything from the moment I entered to the moment I left was perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a better day. So they obviously get a big 5 bees from me.

Brisbane lead up to christmas

I wrote this on the 22nd December but forgot to post it up, silly me!

We went down to south bank on the 19th as they have Christmas movies playing at the lagoon outside. We got there just before it started – they were playing elf. But it was so busy there was absolutely no where to sit and watch the film. We stood there for a little while and watched a bit of it but soon decided that we would just go for some food and have a drink before the Christmas fireworks started at 8:30.

This also proved rather difficult as everywhere was absolutely packed telling us that we would have to wait for an hour before getting seated, so we walked around for a while before settling on a place called Grill’d, which if you haven’t been you should definitely give it a visit! Burgers galore! Although I would stay away from the herby chips! Nice idea – not so nice in reality!

10556296_10153819105591912_743450520893874492_n

We stayed there and ate and drank some wine and had a chat and then walked over to the river ready for the fireworks. On the way back we walked through a Christmas market which was also rammed full of people, it was really strange walking around a Christmas market in the heat wearing shorts and a little top when what I am used to is wearing coats, hats, scarves and gloves and still feeling cold. So it was definitely an experience.

1919112_10153819105751912_9029942142711220479_n 1937118_10153819105926912_6006344113296362362_n 12359827_10153819105571912_1357839534912652155_n

We went and stood by the bridge and watched the fireworks. They were amazing, they have boats of the river that set them off and they also play Christmas songs so it was a really nice evening and i actually managed to feel a little bit Christmassy!

1937118_10153819105416912_6312362292451824802_n 12366223_10153819104896912_5846358787304367046_n 12366385_10153819105301912_562827880524911377_n 1004548_10153819104841912_672976007558286782_n 12369059_10153819104331912_5802696898229488688_n

After this we walked back towards the hostel and then decided to go out for a few drinks at another hostel nearby called city backpackers. It was a good night! The drinks are so cheap in there compared to everywhere else. We had gone in there before and I loved the top the girls behind the bar were wearing, they said ‘weapons of mass destruction’ which I felt like I needed this in my life to go with my lovely plastic assets – THE MINIONS! So when we were at the reception getting money out I decided to buy one, the man behind the counter was funny his name was paddy and he was very Irish which I love! He was asking me what size and how booby I wanted it and obviously small and extra booby is the only right answer so I bought it and didn’t realise until I tried it on that It said a different thing – it says ‘you have been a naughty boy, go to my room’ which is actually even better in my opinion!

12369041_10153819104336912_8080753169444291876_n

So I got changed in the reception into the new top and went about the night having a good time drinking and doing crab dancing and as always making silly snap chats in the toilets! When I go out for a ciggy and the owner was there, he called me over and said I looked good in the top and offered me a job there! I asked how much the pay was etc. and then he said that I would have to move there!

I was considering moving out after all the drama of last week but I soon sorted my head out and decided against that but that wasn’t for another couple of days so I didn’t really know what to do at this point! And as always my overthinking mind was doing what it does best and not really knowing what to do about it!

 

The next few days were pretty boring, not much happened to be honest! Just a lot of chilling by the pool and topping up my tan which is getting pretty good now if I do say so myself! Happy happy happy! Although I and Amy did walk down to St. George square and look at the town hall. They play some kind of movie on the building! It’s crazy! But it’s really cool, it’s strange but good!

I am looking forward to Christmas but I am also really missing home a lot right now! I miss all my family and I really miss my friends! I do really like it here but I also am bored a lot of the time as everyone seems to not do a lot or go off and do things separately which is a bit annoying because I don’t really have anyone to go off and do things with so I have been stuck in the hostel quite a lot! Yes I know I could go out on my own but it’s always better with someone else, so I would really like to ship some of my besties from back home over right about now! I always knew I would get homesick around this time so I am quite looking forward for Christmas to be over in a way and then I can figure out what to do!

I am starting to get low on money too so I do really need to look for a job but it’s so hard to find one that I actually want to do and that I’m not going to get fed up of and walk out! I found it so easy back home why not here?? But then I also don’t know if I just want to leave straight after New Year and just go somewhere else. I do like it here but I also feel like maybe it’s not exactly where I am supposed to be.

I was hoping to have found someone else by now to travel with be that a man or a new bestie! It would just be nice to have that one constant with you, don’t get me wrong travelling alone is great but it’s also a bit lonely at times if you’re not in the right place, and if there is one thing I know about me it’s that I am definitely a people person! Yes I like my own space every now and then but I would much rather be around people out doing exciting stuff. Well we shall see what happens hey!

Anyway tomorrow I have to go out and get some food and more for Xmas day and then the day after is Xmas eve where I will be getting extremely beautified all day in the spa! CAN NOT WAIT!!

And then the day after that is Christmas day, so it’s going quite fast, better make my mind up then shouldn’t I.

That can be all for now!

I will update the rest tomorrow.

Brisbane update finally!!

So I know it’s been a while since I updated my blog, I have been busy and also not really knowing what to write about certain things that have been happening but I have now got my balls back and I am going to write about what has been going on the past few weeks!

The reason I was worried was because I didn’t know who was going to read this and also because I didn’t know how much detail to go in about again certain things! I’m going to write the basic jist of what has happened but not go into too much detail such as a read at your own risk post!

Also because I can’t remember what happened from day to day now I have left it so long I am just going to bulk everything together!

So let’s start with the job!

So as most of you will know I walked out on my stripper job and spent basically everyday searching for jobs, it was getting stressful, I wasn’t hearing back from anyone and got to the point where I needed to start applying for jobs that I did not want to do! So I applied for a job in fundraising! To me I cannot think of anything worse than this kind of job, I hate people who try to talk to me in the street with a passion!

I also have got social anxiety! So trying to talk to people in the street is very stressful for me to! However I applied and went for an interview on the Thursday of a couple of weeks ago the date was the 3rd December. The next day I got a call back saying I had got the job and I was really happy as this was fundraising for Cancer and I feel like this is very close to my heart as just before I went away as one of my best friends from back home had his mom pass away from Cancer so this to me felt like I was supposed to do this job! I know I can’t turn back time and bring his mom back but I can make more people aware of how high the cancer risk is in Australia!

I was actually really shocked by how high it is over here! 50% of the population will be affected by cancer at some point during their lives which is crazy! The sun here is so strong and the lack of an ozone layer doesn’t help people’s chances either, so it is a great cause and I was happy to be a part of it! Although my first week was horrendous! I felt so scared and so nervous and I felt pretty emotional too! It surprised me actually as I have known for a few years now that I have got social anxiety and just general anxiety with absolutely everything and this job kind of slapped me in the face with that and made me realise how bad it actually was! All through the first week I just wanted to run away and hide and cry! It was not the best week of my life at all, but I made myself carry on!

I do not want to be a nervous wreck throughout the rest of my life! I want to be a happy and confident person and not have to worry about talking to people and I guess the only way for me to get over that is to put myself through a bit of mental torture to begin with but that won’t last forever!

So in the first week, well on my first day on the street I actually had a really bad day, I was unlucky and managed to stop drunk people and someone who seemed to hate Australia and not care about cancer at all, telling me that his dad had it and he didn’t care so I was incredibly shocked and didn’t really know what to do with that! I also find that the city is a really hard place to get people to stop and chat to you as everyone is in such a rush all the time and then the people are a lot like I was! Wanting to avoid fundraisers at all costs! I now have so much more respect for fundraisers than I did before! It’s a HARD HARD HARD job to do!

Then on the Thursday I got asked if I would go on a travel trip with a few people of the team, this scared me so much because I thought omg I will have to go away for the week and I won’t be able to escape even if I wanted to! (I always like to have an escape plan!!)

15030507385013-3-05_goondiwindi_main_street_2 row3-photo2

We went to a place called Goondiwindi on the Sunday evening (I love the names here) it’s a very small town that is about 4 hours south west from Brisbane! And I managed to get my very first sign up all on my own so I was very happy with that! And then in the evening we chilled at the caravan park, smoked some weed and drank some beers! It was a good day and night although I got absolutely covered in mosquito bites so bad that when I woke up the next day my leg was swollen and I couldn’t even wear my shoes! A whole pack of antihistamines later and some antiseptic lotion it was feeling a lot better.

We spent the next day in Goondiwindi too but I started hating the job again! Lack of breaks and just me feeling miserable from the bites and again trying to stop people was making me feel miserable. It’s not that I hate the actual job, I think it’s needed to make people aware of what is actually going on in the world of cancer and it is a great cause but I just think it’s not for me! And I don’t really like pressing people to spend money when they don’t really want to at first which obviously means I’m not going to be a very good fundraiser! Part of the job is concern handling (when they say no) but I think if someone says no then they have a right to that and I don’t really like pushing someone into saying yes.

We left that night and moved onto a place called Stanthorpe which was about a 3 hour drive away and it was very high up (around 800meters above sea level) so it was a lot cooler here and for the first time being here I felt freezing cold at 17degrees! Guess my body has adjusted to the heat here!

Again this day was not enjoyable for me, we didn’t have a break and then our lunch was late, I was feeling ill and miserable and just being generally moany! I had already in my head decided that I hated this job and wasn’t going to continue after this week so I had no motivation and then with the lack of breaks and unpaid overtime it was making me feel even more miserable towards the job. It got to lunch time and the manager called me and I told her that I was going to leave, I carried on working for the rest of the day and thought If I could get a couple of sign ups in the afternoon I would change my mind but I didn’t! I guess I am just not made for this job at all!

So I searched for a bus back to Brisbane and left the next morning! I think it is a shame as the people who work with the company are really nice so I will miss spending time with them but I can’t just stay in a job just for the people! I need to enjoy myself and enjoy the work otherwise I will get miserable and moany – and yes I know I shouldn’t get like that but at least I know myself well enough to know that I would feel and act that way and I think I did the team a favour by leaving to be honest! I don’t want to bring anyone down with me!

One thing I will say is that I am happy I did do the job even though it was only for a week and a half but that was a week and a half longer than I wanted to do it! It has increased my confidence and made me realise some things about myself which I wouldn’t have realised if I hadn’t done the job! It’s also made me more aware of cancer and how high the statistics of being diagnosed with it are so it is making me think a little more about my lifestyle choices which is a good thing!

So now to the next part of my life……

original

In the last few weeks there has been a lot of confusion on my part due to yes a boy! What a surprise! So a lad called Tom came into the hostel and as soon as I saw him I remember thinking ‘oh no….this is not going to be good’ why?? Because I thought he was rather tasty to look at! And then after chatting to him for a bit I thought he was also a really nice person! which means big trouble for me and my over thinking mind!

I couldn’t get him off my mind but I refused to let myself do anything because even though I would love to find someone who wants the same things that I do and my dream has always been to find someone who wants to travel the world too blah blah blah……I also am not an idiot! I know that these kind of things tend to only happen in movies and with my track record of men treating me like shit I really don’t want that to happen over here!

I have also decided that I’m done with pointless relationships, yes I know I’m travelling and what everyone does here is sleep around with people and then move onto the next without really caring about each other, well I have realised that is not me!

If I am going to be with someone from now on then I want it to be real or have the potential of being real, I know you can’t decide within the first week or so that you are going to spend your lives together – I am not that stupid! But I do know that you can go into something with good intentions and by good intentions I mean not just planning on sleeping with someone for a bit and only that! And then see what happens, no game playing just enjoying each other’s company!

So back to Tom…..I had mentioned to Amy that I liked him and that he was oh so beautiful which he is, but that I also was not going to let him know this! I get very nervous showing my feelings towards people when I don’t know how they feel about me! I don’t want to feel embarrassed or anything so I find that I try to act like I don’t like them at all! (I know – silly right)

Anyway……he obviously heard that I liked him and came and spoke to me about it, I said that I wasn’t sure on what to do! For days I kept going back and forth in my mind about if I should start anything with him after all in my head he is a man, he is going to hurt me in some kind of way as every other bloke I have come into contact with has! (And quite badly too which I’m still not quite over I have come to realise).

So after a lot of thinking and a lot of talking to friends here and back home I decided to try not to worry about things and just go for it, which I did! And it seemed to be alright for a while! But now I’m not so sure!

I don’t really think he likes me as much as I like him and he seems to only want to spend time alone with me when it’s late and everyone else has gone to bed…..hmmm I wonder why that is??

12342361_10153804958041912_1516753849279809701_n

We all went out for a few drinks last weekend and me and Tom had a bit of an argument as I felt like he had been a bit unfair to me the night before and was just waiting for an apology which I didn’t get…we ended up speaking and sorting things out and he seemed to say all the right things but he was drunk so I guess that might be the only reason why as he seems to be different again with me now! How confusing!!!

I know he’s not all in the wrong but as I have been told if a man wants to be with you he will make sure that happens and also make you very aware of that fact which he has not! I know it’s only been a few weeks but I still know myself well enough now to know what I want and need from starting something up with anyone and I am not in any way ashamed or embarrassed to say that I want more than just a few hours alone together every few days doing ‘certain things’ As I mentioned before I am so over silly games and so over sleeping around with no intentions of anything else! I would much rather have nothing and wait for someone who actually wants to be with me and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that….do you?

My other problem however is that I constantly question everything I say and do all the time, so I will feel like I want more or say something about the way I feel and then panic and think – ‘shit, should I have said that? Am I being an idiot?’ which I have done about this situation but I do think that I deserve more and I don’t think that I am wrong for wanting to be treated better!  Maybe that will make me stupid but I’m ok with that!

I wasn’t sure what to write about the whole thing as I do want to keep my diary updated with everything in my life so I can look back in years to come and remember so that’s what I have done! I don’t know if he will read this or not but if he does then he does and I guess I will just have to deal with what ever is to come! – Hopefully all good but I am not that optimistic haha.

Right well that’s done……. So what else have I been getting up to?

12391127_10206723569101653_5076607432730969800_n

Well I love everyone in this hostel! There is a big group of us now who are staying for Xmas and New Year and it’s a really good group! It’s going to be a very sad day when we all part ways but that’s the life of a traveller I guess! People quickly become your family and become a big part of your life because you are living together and spent the majority of your time together! I know I have made some friends for life here and that makes me happy!

I have managed to get everyone involved in secret Santa which me and my amazing friends back home do every year! And even though it does not feel like Christmas at all here I am still making sure I have some Christmas spirit even if everyone else is not as enthusiastic about the idea! Back home I love Christmas and I get that from my amazing mom! She is crazy for Christmas and why not? It’s something to look forward to! It’s a day where you spend time with people you love and have a good time! So I will bring my Christmas spirit to the land down under and I will sing Christmas songs and dance around to them! I am however deeply saddened at the fact I did not bring my elf costume to wear on Xmas day! But I will get over that! Maybe try and find a Santa bikini or something haha.

So what am I doing now??…..well its Christmas next week and I am just going to chill and try not to spend too much money as I don’t want to work until after new year now! But I just need to try and come up with a plan about what to do after New Year! Where to go, what to do etc.…..

Also on Christmas Eve I have a spa day which my amazing family got me! I am so excited! It’s a whole day of treatments just in time for Christmas! Eeeaaakkkkk!!! It’s going to be amazing so thank you guys!

Right I think I have wrote more than enough now, sorry to blabber on but you know me! I don’t do well with short and sweet!

I will try be better with updating this next time haha.

Peace out      Smile

Brisbane – Job hunting and sunbathing

My last diary post stopped last Tuesday when I was waiting to go to work….

24th November

honeybs

I went to Honey B’s at 6:45pm and got changed, it was really quiet but I already knew it was going to be. They only had 5 girls working and I was quite happy with this as I wanted to learn more moves on the pole. My god it’s hard!!

Who knew being a stripper would be such hard work hey! Luckily all the girls there were really nice and wanted to help me learn. So when you’re on the stage you have 2 areas, the pole and the stage. Both of these areas scared me! – I’m not exactly the most ‘sexy’ person in the world and trying to do some gliding around the pole and the floor ends up looking a bit robotic from me! (How I managed to win wet t-shirts I shall never know now!!)

All the girls were amazing on the pole, climbing up and leaning back, going upside down and all I can do it spin around it! Although I couldn’t even do that right to begin with as I oh so gracefully face planted the floor on my first night!

So after a few hours of practicing climbing up the pole I managed to pull myself up, wrap my legs around the pole so the pole was resting on the side of my knee which created a lever, this meant I could lean back and touch the floor and spin myself around. I was so impressed with myself, however when I was doing this I could still feel myself being very ‘jerky’ so I don’t think it would have looked too sexy for the men to watch, oh well big improvement for me anyway.

25/26th

polebruisemap

The next day I literally did absolutely nothing! My body was in so much pain from the pole dance lessons the night before!

‘HOW THE FUCK DO THEY DO THIS EVERY SINGLE NIGHT???’

It hurt to even sit up in bed, but I was happy as I have not done a single shred of exercise since I left home. I did also wake up with a variety of bruises all over my body with the biggest one being on the back of my knee from where I had to wrap my leg around the pole to spin myself around it! Again….

‘HOW THE FUCK DO THEY DO THIS EVERY SINGLE NIGHT???’

On the 26th – I got a message asking me to go to dancer training in the evening at 6pm, I spent the day by the pool and job hunting again and then went off to the training.

When I got there I was told it was going to take 3 hours and they also were telling me that I would have to buy my own shoes this weekend which would set me back $100! Hmmm….. $100 for a pair of shoes that I hate and hurt me and I will never ever wear ever again! I don’t think so!!!

I told them that I couldn’t stay for the training as I had plans so I left and went to the south bank to go to a shisha bar with Tim (Tim Tam) and Matty, but when we got there they told us that we would have to buy a couple of meals to be able to smoke in there and the meals were around $30 each so we thought not and went to an ale and cider bar called Tomahawk bar for a drink instead.

27th November

aussie-way-backpackers

I spent the whole day lazing by the pool again and job hunting again, where I found a purchasing job that I really wanted to apply for. I find the agencies here really hard to work with as they never call you back and don’t really help at all, I’m making a list of all the places I have tried and when I finally find one that is helpful I will make a post about it to try and help people out, especially as I have quite a bit of experience in admin and waitress roles but yet finding it really difficult to get a call back. I knew it was going to be hard but not this hard!

5pm came and I went off to get ready for my job while I knew everyone was going to go out for a few drinks which made me feel really sad and dreading going to work to have sleazy men trying to touch me, but I’m going to go I thought as I need the money!

Off I went to work at 6:45pm paid my $30 working fee and I got changed into my undies and went and sat downstairs with nothing to do as it was empty other than look around and think about what the fuck I was doing in this place!

‘Why am I here?’

‘What the fuck am I doing?’

‘Do I really want to be here and have men touching me up and having to dance on them and act like I want to do it?’

After I asked myself these questions I went upstairs got changed and told them I needed to leave, I didn’t tell them I was quitting but that I had something I had to do just to give me a little bit more time to think about it, even though I already knew I wasn’t going to go back again.

So I left and went back to the hostel where everyone was getting ready to leave, I quickly went upstairs and got changed and met them all out the front of the hostel where we walked up to a bar just up the road called The Yard Bird. Everyone went there for chicken wings, I went for the beer!! We spent most of the night using face swap on my phone which made for some funny pictures. We stayed here for a few hours having a bit of a drink, and then ventured up the road to a bar on Caxton Street for a couple more drinks.

Love these lot…..

I know we went back and decided to go to the park for a spliff, I think we stayed there for a little while as I don’t remember too much more other than the fact that we went out at 9 and ended up back at the hostel at around 2am. When we got back we were sat in the front room and Terhi said we should go have a party in Jacks room as he is in the quiet area so we wouldn’t be heard!

We went in the back room for a bit and sat around had a few laughs and watched some funny YouTube videos and then went to bed. It was a good night and I was feeling extra happy that I wasn’t at the strip club!

The next day I woke up feeling a tad sick and hungover but the pool soon sorted me out as did food. Then a few of us decided to walk up to The Yard Bird and grab some food, as we were walking up there we saw a massive crowd of people waiting outside the stadium for Ed Sheeran to play, I was obviously super-duper jealous and wanted to be in there watching him.

We went and got some food and some beers and then headed back to the hostel where we just sat around and chilled for most of the night until I had the urge for wine, so I walked down to the bottle shop got myself 2 bottles of wine and drank on my own! – I wonder where I get my wine drinking habits from (mom and Nan???).

A relatively quiet evening but oh so nice to be able to just chill and not do much now! Really loving being here and feeling settled and relaxed.

Sunday was another quiet day chilling by the pool and heading to the park for more spliff’s, I also only drank one bottle of wine the night before so me and Terhi went to the park put down a blanket and sat there for a few hours drinking the remaining bottle and having a nice chat whilst listening to some music. She is from Finland so had lots of finish music on her phone which I enjoyed listening to. I do like living in hostels as you get to meet a lot of different people who can show you lots of different things like this. I love the variety and I love discovering new music, ways of doing things, cooking etc.

Another boring day (but not so boring as I was by the pool sunning it up) but lots and lots of job hunting! I applied to so many agencies and so many jobs advertised online. It’s really hard to find work here as a girl I think.

I also got the urge to have roast potatoes and we only have a tiny little toaster over so it took absolutely forever to make them but they were so bloody good! Not as good as back home but as good as I could make them in the little oven here. So I was extra happy with my roast dinner.

1st November

Again spent the day job hunting! And writing the blog! Yet again I have been slow with updating! What a shocker! Although I am adding things to lists for writing posts about what to do in Brisbane, and I will definitely be writing one about finding work as I have found it really hard. There are so many agencies here it’s hard to know which ones to look at and it’s hard to get call backs from them regarding work. I found this back happened back home in Worcester too, but when I moved to Evesham the agency there was brilliant and called me all the time so I think I was just expecting that to happen when I got here and that I would find work quickly. Oh how wrong was I!

I did managed to get a call back from a sales company who have asked me to go to an interview tomorrow, but it’s for a door to door sales role which is surprise surprise commission only! So I will go just to see what it’s all about but it’s not what I want to be doing at all. I’m not really the best person for knocking on peoples doors trying to convince them to sign up to something or buy something but I’m not losing anything with this one like with the dancing job! So I will give it a go until something else pops up and continue to look!
