Off to Paris in the monring......

Geee wizzzz I sounld like i'm counting down to christmas! lol. Josh is taking me to Paris for the weekend including a trip to Disneyland. I'm so excited!!!! (can you tell???)

Well i found a blog that most of you already know about the two peas one, I'm really dissapointed the people can be so mean!

Do you like this page? At first i didn't like how this turned out but now it's starting to grow on me. The beauty on the left is my little sister. Although I think she looks older then me she is only a wee 19! I did this ages ago as you can tell it's an old Lime Tart’s kit.

Not all that much else is going on over here the weather is getting cooler evrey day and the days are getting darker & darker. Day light savings end on Saturday (mum that means 8 hrs behind now) and the girls at work tell me it'll be dark at 4 in the afternoon! And they also told me it snows where I live so i'm not sure i want to be here any more. Cold weather and Lauren = whinging Lauren. ROFL!!!

A lot of people over here ask me what I miss most about home. I must say that it's friendly faces. Honestly Australia has the most friendly people great customer service and lovely people. ( I know I sound so Aussie Aussie Aussie) But it's only too common to walk into a shop in the UK and stand at the counter while the staff finish telling each other what their doing on the weekend or other gossip! I just don't think it's a good impression to set for your customers.

Well thats my whine for the day i'm turning into a whinging pom more and more every day!!!

I'll share some photo's of Paris and Disneyland when I get back. Missing every one.

I know exactly what you mean about friendly Aussies- when I was home last I would be getting served and the assistants would be so pleasant and chatty. At first I thought they had me mixed up with someone they knew, then i realized they were plain friendly, unlike much customer servie over here. Enjoy Paris, and acyually you will probably be disappointed about how littl it does actually snow over here. When I first came over we got quite alot of snow up here in Scotland, but now it hardly seems to happen. When it does it is fantastic!!!
