The Melbourne Journey Begins

Stay tuned over the next few days while I share my Melbourne adventure with you :D
We flew with Jet Star and it was a really good flight.

What fun!

A little while ago I was at a friend's house and was picking up some plants in pots.

It was the one of the few days of sunshine after days of heavy rain. I was a little concerned about making marks on the grass but we decided that it would be ok to drive on.

Uh uh .........

That was a mistake!

When it came time to leave, I drove forward about 4 ft and then of course, the inevitable came.
Yes, you guessed it. I got bogged.

So an hour and a half later, we had the car free and the yard repaired as best we could.

Don't you think its a little bit better than the first couple :D

Go on, you can laugh, we did!

Celebration of Anniversary

To celebrate our anniversary, today we went and had lunch at the Hog's Breath Cafe.
To say it was delicious was an understatement.
It was so enjoyable.
The food ....
The atmosphere ....
The two of us enjoying each other ..........
Yep! It was a great day.
The best part was at the end of the day, Gary was still there with me as he had a few days off work.
And we got a 25% voucher off our next meal.
We'll use this come May for Gary's birthday.
Can't wait, already drooling :D

A sticking quote

I came across a quote the other day that really did make me stop and think. You've probably heard it before, I think I have, but its only now that its made its mark

Get off the Cross, someone else needs it

How many times in our lives have we played the martyr? Thought that situations only unraveled because of decision we made? How much blame have we placed on our shoulders when it was someone else's actions?

I don't know about you but I know I've done all of that at times.

I hate seeing someone hurting especially if I see a way to fix it. That's when it becomes a major hiccup in my walk. I take on that hurt that really isn't mine, thinking that it will help the person who owns it, forgetting often that its not my path to walk. I'm not the one who should be solving the problem, providing the solution but should really be a shoulder and support.

Tuesday Trainings

I am lucky enough to have the services of a free Personal Trainer. For the next 8 wks it will be free of charge. woohoo!!!!

Today was Week 1.

We started off with taking my blood pressure, heart rate etc. Then we were off for a 30 minute walk. It was a good walk and on the return were lucky enough to cool down in the rain hahahaha

The next event was balance. I stood on this thing that that looked like an exercise ball cut in half on a flat bottom. I had to stand on it for various activities while I centred my weight/balance.

Then came the wall push-ups, lunges, squats etc etc.

My workout went for 1hr 13mins and I feel buggered :B

My total calorie burn out was 769 woohoo!!!!!

I don't think there is a part of me which isn't aching or burning hahahahaha

I found this photo at

I am in awe of this person's workspace. I look around me and all I see is clutter. Now don't get me wrong, I absolutely thrive in clutter, but when I look at this photo I start wishing it was my workspace.

Bonnie, are you seeing this? hehehehehehehe

Not sure what these feelings are

I'm feeling really ....... ummmmm ....... can't think of the right word.

Its not that I feel sad or down, I just feel ..... empty? That might be close to the truth. I don't feel as if I have much fire at the moment.

I'd be happy to stay in my own little space and not have to deal with anyone but I know that I can't do that so this starts to annoy me a bit. I know that being reclusive is not a healthy thing for me as it kickstarts depression into high gear when I get this way.

I'm also sensing some paranoia. This really bothers me. I'm not usually one to worry about what people might be saying/thinking but I find that today especially, everything is being all muddled up in my head.

I hate it but I don't know how to control it. How do I fix this? Or is it something I can't and need to just take more meds for?

Send a prayer for me and pray God can handle this for me.

I want to go back

I enjoyed Melbourne so much last weekend. I want to go back!!!!

I met some really beautiful people. I'm not talking about the outside package (even though they were great) but their inner beauty.

We went to Melbourne for a meeting of Victorian BrAshA-T members. BrAshA-T is a charity set up for sufferers of Ataxia-Telangiectasia.

Please click the logo to go to the BrAshA-T website.

I have a lot of blogging to do about my trip to Melbourne, both here and over at Let's Eat.
