Hello!

<sweeping through for a grand entrance>

Does anyone remember me!?

I'm came back from Australia where I had the time of my life. I went to the set of Neighbours. Nuff said. Tanned and fighting fit I was! Then two days later from returning home, I end up in hospital with a badly infected wisdom tooth extraction, which makes me ill for weeks and weeks.

And I lost my tan within a week of being back on British land....

I came out of hospital, and moved house. Fun! Only we don't have internet! NOT fun! Can't get any mobile signal! Great! No TV aerial! :rolleyes: I have moved into a technological black hole.

Then my dad went into hospital. Eek.

But now he is fine, after 38w475w6348756 calls to BT call centres in India, we now have internet and I am finally fully recovered. Incidentally, I nearly needed hospital treatment again from lack of surfing. Of the web variety!

This is the eville tooth itself which caused me weeks of melodramtic hospitalisation! ;)

Lovely eh!?

And this is where I was living in Aus (the Gold Coast), just to ease you if you have been grossed out by the tooth;)

So.

What have I missed?

It's great to be back :) Hope all you cool music loving people are still here...... :)

Welcome Back! I wondered what happened to you. We missed you in the Photography thread, which has finally made it to chat status. :D

Good grief! It's you!! :eek: ;)

Oh before I start with the welcoming celebrations I just have to say right here, right now that that wisdom of yours is absolutely horrifying! :scared: I'm so glad I've not had any problems with mine so far *touch wood* :unsure:

Anyhoo...onwards...

:wavey: :bounce: :woohoo:
Glad you enjoyed your mammoth time in Aus, did you lose any of your Welsh accent and develop a lovely Aussie twang at all? You'll have to give loads of details over the coming days/weeks/months now that you've managed to crawl out of that technological black hole you found yourself in ;)

You've not missed much to be honest...on a personal front I've graduated Uni and now just wasting time before I go back and do a masters next year :cool: also I've developed an almost worrying obsession with almost anything Italian :lol: ;)

Anyhoo, Sian...glad to have you back around the boards :hug: It's been an absolute age since we last saw you! ;)

So where did you move... Mid-Wales? Sounds like it. ;)

Welcome back though! I'm glad you had the time of your life. :cool:

Gemma! :D HELLO!!! :wavey:

Congratulations on graduating! :kiss: YouRockz! :) Aw I'm so pleased for you. And good luck for your masters!

My accent fluctuated...and I say 'no worries' constantly. Mate. Lol. But I'm back to Caaaaardiff accents now!

I didn't want to come back from Aus admittedly, and lying in a hospital bed just confirmed my original feelings lol

I miss the kangaroos. Seriously!

Highlights of Aus - going to the set of Neighbours, meeting Toadie seeing Harold Bishop; going to Steve Irwin's zoo (before he died) it's an awesome place!; lying on the beach most days ;)

Nah I'm enjoying being back home now, especially seeing as I've moved out of the parents' home! And of course non-wisdom-toothed...I have to have the other out in a month or two lol. Yeah it was a horrible experience to be honest, but these things happen. I think it was karma for being jammy and having such a great time in Aus. ;)

Ooooooh sounds like you had a great time! :yeah: :hug: Especially with all the fab Neighbours related business, genius! :bounce:

Though I would have advised you to have had your medical emergency in Aus not that you could really avoid it admittedly, I had mine there (although not tooth related, it was more allergy related ;) ) but their hospitals/doctors etc are like a million times better than ours, or at least in my experience they are...plus since you're in with the Neighbours crew now, surely you could have had Dr.Karl look after you! ;)

You've got me all nostalgic for my Aus trip now *goes off to look at pics of kangaroos*...
