It is a good idea, everyone told me not to take my laptop when I went with Keycamp, and it was great for watching films when no one had money to go out! I took all my DJ stuff to the Philippines, its quite light actually I should be ok, the only problem will be denying it was me making all the noise x

Fab person to go away with...our own personal dj! And you could deny it easily, not the typical looking Dj x

Aha best start now! She might get the hang of it by summer.

Do you have any idea what our accommodation will be like? x

not at all, I know staff accommodation is usually in a totally different part to guests, I'm assuming its bigger than just a hotel room if you share with someone, from the looks of the hotels though I can't see the accommodation being too bad, better than working for Keycamp, living in a tent, and coming back drunk and pulling down your inner! x

Yeh, it wasn't the best, our live area was on gravel as well, so all the groundsheet had holes, so when it rained the water actually came up through the floor. Good old Keycamp days. Sani Village looks nice, from what I can gather the whole thing is a semi circle around the harbor/cove. Apparently Brad and Ange go to that part of Greece - They have got another think coming if they think they are putting that lot in the kids club! x

That doesn't sound pleasant at all...not a fan of camping if you hadn't guessed!

Yeah looks like a really nice area from what I can see, plenty to see and do on days off and nice little bars and restaurants hidden about.

Ahaha could you imagine! Millions of their kids running riot round the place lol x

I've already scouted out several of the nightclubs to send my promo mix to once I know what resort I'm on. 

I'm actually not a fan of the whole Kavos/Magaluf type thing, but if the ones in Crete are near Malia, you'd have to go really wouldn't you? x

I didn't mean to post that twice, at the time I had a kitten attacking me for my toast. No I'm not, I look at some people and think 'thank goodness I'm THIS side of the DJ booth'! I've DJed in slippers before, rock and roll! 
At least there are nice beaches on all of them, when I worked for Keycamp we had campfire nights on the beach it was wicked x

Aha fab! I live in my slippers, I applaud you for djing in them!

Drinks round a campfire and parties on a beach are much more my thing, hopefully will end up working with a nice bunch of people who are up for the socialising side...aaaaah so damned excited! The more I research the place the more I can't wait to get out there x

Yeh me 2, I've never been a fan of this country in the first place.Mainly the weather, the fact that I'm forced to live in Essex and the weather. In my experience , most people who do this kind of work are funners. x

Yeh, coming home was a slight culture shock, I'm hoping they are the sort of company you can work for season after season, I just want to turn up around the vague time of Christmas, get spoiled and leave again lol x

Ha ha I like the getting spoilt part! I'm gonna find leaving here hard! I teach gymnastics and have taught some children every week for years, it's gonna be the first time I have left them and let someone else coach them :( I'm just hoping they will still be there to coach when I get back x

Oh yeh I remember you saying about gymnastics, I know exactly how you feel, leaving the guys I looked after with learning disabilities was awful, I've seen them loads since I come back though, and its really good because I flounce in all happy and don't get any of the stress of actually working with them! They probably enjoy it more because I don't have to tell them off or anything. 
When I was in the Philippines I rang them loads though, get someone with an iPhone to set up Skype so you can speak to them all. 

It is horrible leaving for the first few weeks but once you get into a routine while your out there it actually feels normal,when you get back its really strange because you expect everyone to all be massively different, when I came back both times from being away EVERYONE I knew was doing exactly the same thing lol. Even going to the same pub on a Friday night!
