As the title says, school is officially out, and boy am I glad! I made the grade in the end and walked out of it with a Pass B - I'm well pleased. Keishia also hit the mark and earned herself a lovely Pass B too. Now to find a job! Unfortunately ILA will not employ us as we do not have the relevant paperwork (degree certificate) so it looks like we'll be working for some other school for a while first. That's not a bad thing though. I mean, ILA would be a great school to work for. The facilities are good and so is the management so not being paid would not be an issue. However, the pay rate is possibly the lowest in town, starting at only $14 per hour. There are a million and one other schools in town so I don't think we'll have too much trouble.

Keishia and I just bought a motorbike too!! An SYM Bonus, 125. We bought it a few days ago but it had several rather major problems and it's now in the garage being repaired. Actually, as I'm typing this we have literally just had word that the repairs are now complete and we can go and pick up the beast!

So, that’s me over and out for now. Time to take a cruise round the city, finally!
