If you read my blog, you have probably noticed that I haven't posted for a long time. Blogging in Australia is sometimes hard because Internet is so expensive here. Another reason for my lack of posts on The Daisy Chain is because I have started a new blog! For a long time I wasn't happy with my blog, so I decided to start from scratch.
My new blog is By Air Mail, With Love. My first post tells me a bit more about myself and you can read about what I've been up to in Australia so far, as well as see some photos and there's also some Travel Tips for those who want to do some travelling themselves.
It's still a new blog and I need to sort my layout out (which will have to wait until I get back to England), but take a look around and give if a cheeky follow on Bloglovin' or GFC if you like what you see :)

an aussie christmas

This has been one bizarre Christmas. Not only is it my first Christmas away from family but I was spending it in 40 degrees. The day started early with a small champagne breakfast, then a trip to the beach. The beach was so much fun with reindeer antlers, Santa hats and Christmas songs on the beach radios. We only stayed at the beach for an hour or so because even though it was so early it was still so hot. We went back to our apartment to have a BBQ. We had sausages, chicken and steak with potato salad and a green salad. It was so nice but it doesn't beat a roast dinner.
After a big meal I needed to have the traditional Christmas Day nap, I felt exhausted. When I woke I spent a good few hours on Skype calling my parents, my brothers, grandad and gran and then again a few hours after so I could Skype my uncle and my nan.
I had a really fun day with my friend and her family but for me there is no place like home this time of year. I will admit that I did cry a little after skyping my mum and dad but I'm just grateful I got to speak to them and be part of their Christmas Day back in England.
As mentioned previously, I have now started my YouTube channel and I have loaded a video of my aussie christmas.

number one

I have finally got round to doing my first youtube video. I'm learning as I go along when it comes to editing and being in front of the camera. Let me know what you think.
