Melbourne for the night?

So I agreed to do another patient escort, this time to Melbourne. And this pt, was a much easier transfer then the last, and I even had the pt's escort with me which made it even better!!! This pt could also walk, and was very quiet, unlike the previous guy!! We had to travel via Adelaide which kind of sucked, but we only had to wait for 20 minutes before re-boarding the plane, so not bad, more money for me I guess?!
The hospital even had a bed waiting for him which was easy for me, and once I handed over, I was out of there! I jumped in a cab who proceeded to take me to the wrong hotel, despite me questioning him. So I had to get into another cab, and pay out of my pocket as I used my taxi voucher on the previous retard. Oh well, I should be able to get that money back. I made it to my hotel and didn't feel like venturing to far, pretty tired as I'm still trying to turn over from nights, I could hardly keep my eyes open on the plane. So I grabbed my laptop and had supper at the hotel restaurant, as well as a couple drinks, and that is where I am writing this post!!
It is pretty cold here in Melbourne, and glad I grabbed my jacket, I know, I know, I don't mean to brag, but 21 degrees is freakin cold right now. What can I say, I seem to acclimatize very quickly where ever I go :)
Plan for tonight is to start watching season 3 of Dexter, I came prepared with DVD's, and I got a late checkout tomorrow for 12 noon. My flight is at 2, I'll probably go for a walk in the morning, and I get into Darwin at 1650. Just in time to party!!
It is a friends last weekend in Darwin before heading to South America, so I think we'll head over for a few drinks. I think I actually missing a party/bbq tonight, but I had money bags in my eyes, and came to Melbourne instead.
Unlike with the pt escort I'll be able to get a full night sleep, and I should sleep well as I've been up since 5am - apart from the dolphin naps on the plane.

Oh yeah, as for the mini eggs, they stayed at the house. I think I had mini egg overdose and was feeling very sick last night. Damn mini eggs......I love them soooooo much :)

5 more work shifts left :)...................
