Long weekends

We had a long weekend in most parts of Australia this past weekend and it was fantastic! On a normal weekend, I often get the Sunday evening blues – I don’t dislike my day-job so I think it’s more to do with getting back into the grind of a hectic week. This weekend, I actually felt like I had a solid break. Time went a little slower, I didn’t feel like I was letting myself down by not doing groceries & finishing the laundry on Sunday.

While I can’t escape Mondays every week, I think I need to take a little pressure off the weekends & what can be accomplished. If I can get out into nature a bit, eat some delicious food and see some family & friends, I know I’ll feel far more rested than if I try to get through all the things on my to-do list.


My gym unexpectedly shutdown this week. Given I’ve been a member since the very beginning, I was quite saddened by the way it all ended. I do firmly believe though that all things happen for a reason and I think this will be a great opportunity for me to step out of my comfort zone and find a new challenge. No, I’m not taking up horse riding or pole dancing (ha!) but I’m looking forward to taking more responsibility for planning my own workouts & finding a bit more balance in my routine.

Best friends

On Sunday night we had a delicious feast at New Shanghai in Charlestown with Nina, my best friend since day one of kindergarten. 23 years on, it’s pretty special to know I have someone in my life who is – and has always been – ready to drop everything & come eat dumplings, supervise wedding dress fittings & celebrate special events. I can’t wait to have her lined up next to me come my wedding day.

Where are you sending your rays of gratitude this week?
