Today, like most of Melbourne, I am not at my day job. I will be doing some writing, listening to some music, and cooking. Bliss. Right after I get out of bed. My hayfever has been terrible so it’ll do me good to stay indoors.
I need to eat healthier. Last night Tash and I had drinks and then we ate a hideously unhealthy meal at the Kodiak Club. We laughed, reminisced about Canberra, and talked about the big issues – bands, boys, blogging. We ate corn fritters – otherwise known as hush puppies, chicken and waffles drizzled with maple syrup, and an ice cream sundae with a warm cookie and candied bacon! You guys! It was sweet, salty, fried deliciousness.
I keep thinking that someone’s going start a diet intervention after they scroll through my instagram photos. So much indulgent food!!
Tomorrow I’m having a photoshoot for a magazine that I wrote an article for. My favourite magazine. Can’t quite believe it.
Next week I’m going to a cheese lunch with Chrissie Swan! Two of my favourite things!
I wonder how long these good times will last. Maybe it isn’t about luck, but making it all happen through goal setting, determination, positivity and hard work?
I’m one month and three days from 31. I’m not feeling the pressure to have conventional success – a mortgage, a high flying job and marriage. I used to be worried I didn’t have it all. But then 30 came along, the best year. And I realised those things may not make you entirely happy. I’m just happy I’ve got the opportunity to be spending time with great people and doing the stuff that makes me happy.
