Seeing as things are mildly frantic with me, I’m swinging by for a good ol’ fashioned currently post. I love writing these, I know they get maligned as a cop out but I always enjoy reading them. And I love how they capture a moment in time. Anyway, I’m rambling.
Watching ¦¦ The Block. I hear it’s an Aussie institution and I’m taking this as part of my Aussie TV Familiarisation Exercise. Moving on.
Exploring ¦¦ Melbourne! I’m here for work and looking forward to getting to know the place a little better. Things are pretty busy on this project so I think my ability to do that will be somewhat limited, but never mind. I’m making the most of what I can.
Wishing ¦¦ For more time to explore Sydney. I realise how silly that sounds and that you can’t be everywhere at once. But still.
Enjoying ¦¦ Sister visit time! Three out of the four of us are together and whenever that happens much joy abounds.
Wearing ¦¦ Fleece lined tights – exciting enough, but here the sizing comes in size TALL! Rather than me going for XXL and hoping for the best (usually they fit very strangely and still are too short) I actually stand a chance of going for a day without having my toes get strangled. So far I’ve found them super comfy and they are *just* long enough. Mine are from Myer; I think they’re these ones (non affiliated, etc).
Planning ¦¦ A mini break/road trip for our anniversary. We’re heading inland and spending time with some animals (and hopefully some well behaved members of gen pub). Any guesses where we’re going?
Discovering ¦¦ Deliveroo! Yes I am wayyy behind the curve on this one. It’s just so handy for business trip dinners where you all you want to do is eat decent food and can’t be bothered to walk all the way to a restaurant only to sit by yourself for ages. It’s really a poor use of time more than anything else!
Visiting ¦¦ Miss Fisher’s House! The series is based here in Melbourne so of course I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit her house. It’s as much a character in the show as she is. Even if you don’t know what on earth I’m talking about, I’m sure you can agree this is a very pretty house?
Bonus points for the cute cat, too.
Hating ¦¦ The chairs in the office I’m working in at the moment. Constant backache. It’s not just me, the whole team are creaking and groaning along with me. Bad chairs!
Earning ¦¦ Qantas points! Yay!
Spending ¦¦ Avios! And I’m very happy to see the back of them. BA have gone seriously downhill in my opinion. S has had a nightmare with BA continually cancelling him off flights then not telling him, so the sooner we spend them all on flights to fun places the better.
Hoping ¦¦ For warmer weather soon. It’s really not that cold here, but I’m so excited to see the start of spring!
Fighting ¦¦ The flab. Say no more.
Inventing ¦¦ Interesting salads. Or trying to, at least.
Sampling ¦¦ Spendy wines. Wine not?
Eating ¦¦ Guilt free donuts. Allegedly. But 133 calories for a donut isn’t bad, right?! Dark chocolate and raspberry is my go-to, seeing as you didn’t ask. I found mine in a Woolies Metro but that link will show you to other stockists nearby.
Listening ¦¦ My Favorite Murder podcast. I’m a bit addicted even though it’s fairly trashy and also a tiny bit spooky whilst walking alone at night in a strange city. It does make you try very hard to SSDGM.
And that’s about it.
What’s going on in your neck of the woods?
