A word from GRUBBY
Yo Perrin's Portal readers. G'day everybody. Well guys it been a number of weeks since I last updated Perrin's Portal.So whats new with me? Well I'm still with my ol' kitchen hand job which is not the most glamorous job in the world but i really quite enjoy it. I make so much money and all the chefs feed all the kitchen and waitering staff little morsels which means I don't have to buy any food at all. Score! I'm saving loads for the next leg of my journey. Incidentally I am planning to leave Sydney on the 5th of april or thereabouts. This will give me roughly two and a half months to travel around the country which should be plenty of time to have some great craic.
Sadly all my nice flatmates have moved on which is a darn shame. As of yet I still don't know the new ones very well but I'm sure in time we'll get on well. It's been hard though because I got used to having the other guys about and the place was like home. As soon as these new guys have moved in they ripped the posters off the walls and completely rearranged all the furniture and made the place all tidy. I didn't like that. I like living in a controlled mess. Now if I leave something lying around I find it later on sitting in a nice neat pile on my bed. It really didn't get me off on the right foot with them. Ah well. Only a few weeks to go before I'll be on the road.
Nothing too wild or exciting has been happening except I met up with Barry Morton and Andrew Lowry from home with some of Andy's friends and we went out for a nice Japanese meal. Lots of drink was had and we had a super time.
It was very nice to meet some people from good old Saintfield. Never thought I'd say this guys but I actually miss the place and the people. So thats about it from me. I'd love to hear from all of you guys again. All the very best guys.Loads of love Ed.
You'll be hearing from me
again soon. Loads of love. Ed

A typical days weather in Sydney with the sun, sea and surf. Wonderful!
