NB this is post 8h red-eye flight which I would not recommend as the best way to arrive into any country. Just saying.
Transferring: all my blog reading to Feedly. Bloglovin’ got too Big Brother-y for me.
Replying: to comments now I’m back in the world of the semi-functional. So you can expect replies to comments you don’t even remember making.
Eating: All the ice cream I can before the weather gets too cold.
Who am I kidding, I’ll still be eating ice cream even when it’s freezing.
Realising: it’s definitely cold enough for jumpers here (and socks, and slippers, and warm pyjamas) and I have definitely not brought enough. I’m rotating the three jumpers I do have and hoping I don’t run into the same people every third day.
Adventuring: to new places, especially pretty ones like Cronulla. Check out this beach:
It’s epic. Good ice cream nearby, too. I mean, so I’ve heard.
Stocking up: on my favourite chocolate which I’m almost certain they’re about to discontinue. You can now only get it on Coles and it’s reduced to clear… It’s the Cadbury Marvellous Creations Raspberry Lemonade and it’s so sugary and so delicious.
If you can find it in the shops… run, don’t walk.
Adjusting: to my new work environment. It’s very the same and very different all at the same time. I’m treading with care.
Thanking: the guest posters who have held the fort while I’ve been out registering for Medicare, tax numbers, Opal cards… In case you missed it, there have been a few expat stories and a piece about the realities of solo female travel.
Brunching: like a boss. Because how can you not?
This is Jellyfish, in Manly. In case you suddenly find yourself in need of some epic smashed avo.
Reading: Tintin to my niece who is a big fan. She’s just learning to read so she likes books where she can follow the story in the pictures. It’s not particularly PC though, so I have to keep breaking off to explain that nowadays it’s not ok to refer to people of Chinese heritage as ‘yellow’, etc.
Also reading: Big Little Lies by none other than Liane Moriarty and very much enjoying it. I can’t see the tv show here but I’ve never read the book so I figured I’d give it a go. It’s been a good one to get myself into an Australian frame of mind, although obviously a fairly stressful way of doing so. I’m about 3 pages away from the end so I think I’ll just go and finish it now…
How was your week?
