It’s been a busy week. I am exhausted!
I did the Enough about me let’s talk about YOU for a minute series of guest blogs, which were so well received – thanks to my guest bloggers and to the new readers who stopped by and read and said hello.
Here is my week in pictures.
I saw this stuck to a city building wall on my way to buy a new (hideously expensive) charger for my MacBook. Isn’t it lovely?
I did my only (and final) belly dancing class for the term – these are Isis wings – so beautiful! Can’t wait to return next year! After dancing my friend and I had Grill’d and Shakeaway, our regular shopping mall treats.
I stayed in a hotel for a week while my shower was being replaced/repaired. (Shower is now ok and I am home!) It was close to work and home, and a few nights I ducked home to check my mail and do washing.
Staying in the hotel taught me convenience food management with a small, one facility ‘kitchen’, and hideously expensive convenience foods.
I tried to be healthy.
This was $5.99!!
I made chicken and salad one night.
Considering I only had limited ingredients and facilities, it was delicious.
I seemed to get a lot of ‘admin’ done in the hotel. This could be put down to needing to rest, lack of good TV reception and having spent all my money on convenience foods/MacBook charger/car alternator and battery.
I organised a post box after both my Muse ticket and birthday present went missing.
I made a mix tape for a friend, and transferred music onto my computer.
I saw a lot of Oprah on (mind numbing) morning TV. Not interested.
read skimmed the Ben Cousins autobiography. I have no interest in drugs or football. I bought the Ben Cousins autobiography on his looks alone. It needs more pictures.
I wrapped presents and wrote Christmas cards. I posted some of them, and gave them out at work.
Being in the hotel also taught me wardrobe management skills. I loved having my week’s outfits planned. It was limiting, and I only had a few accessories and one pair of work shoes, but I felt very in control of my clothes. Might need to work out a similar arrangement at home.
I went to two work functions. The first was dinner at Maria’s Trattoria in Peel Street North Melbourne. So much food, great value.
The second was a tramboat cruise on the Yarra and Port Philip Bay.
Champagne cocktail #4
This is on the top of the boat. Windy.
There was a rainbow on the walk back from the tramboat/post tramboat drinks. So pretty.
I only stayed for two hours, it was a lot of fun. I didn’t want to leave!
The promo posters for the Tell Someone video came out.
K, the lovely makeup girl did my hair and it was teased up like an afro!
I gave Elvira her Christmas present – some pretty drinking straws, and this, her ‘ultimate boyfriend’.
Once again there was a high chair for me to awkwardly mount.
And before Bon Jovi last week, a stranger complimented me on this outfit, she said I look hot! So awesome getting compliments from strangers.
That was my week, how was yours?
