Hello, so, I’ve only just gotten home from Melbourne late tonight. I spent the last couple of days visiting f
amily in the city and celebrating a special little one’s first birthday. Its so good being part of such a BIG loving family. Especially, when we have just welcomed another mini member, this past weekend. Its crazy my (step) bother and two (step) sister’s all now have gorgeous little family’s, while I’m still trying to work out this “adulting thing”.
This week I focused on catching up with friends and family, practising massage and just taking my time to put a few things in order. Plus, ate awesome plant-based food.
Monday-First official day of holidays, so chilled out cooked breakfast for Dylan and myself and then watched some Netflix & Stan. Then, eventually I made my way to my office to blog. I sorted out my blog’s ‘about’ section, designed a blog banner image in photoshop, then worked on & published the Monday blog post.
Tuesday-I slept in and took it easy tidying up the house. I then practiced massage on a client in my home-based massage room. Plus, my Luxy Hair prize was delivered! I won a little Instagram competition and received a 5 minute Journal! (I still feel super lucky and totally blessed)
Wednesday-I treated myself and spent the morning in a local The Dark Horse Cafe/Restaurant, they have a vegan menu, there I planned out my week & created a shopping list. Then, I went on a little shopping spree. I bought a few things for my Massage Room (new lamps & a lavender scented eye pillow). Plus, some mini polaroid Instant Film for my Fuji camera (for an upcoming party). I then practiced massage on another client and did grocery shopping. I then rushed to get ready, met up with a small bunch of people to celebrated a mate’s Birthday at Stellina. Good hearty food, wine and great company.
Thursday- I woke up feeling drained and regrettably had to postpone my regular massage client. She was lovely. So, I organised a few things around town and cleaned out my car inside out. Bought next terms study supplies and watched the latest episode of ‘younger’, its my favourite show on Stan. Made pancakes for dinner for a spontaneous date night.
Friday- I had a smoothie & packed lunch in my monbento lunch box for work. After work, I invited my close friend over for a relaxation massage and she surprised me with gifts (I teared up), she’s just the best! Anyways, later on, Dylan brought home Vegan burritos from the new Zambrero Mexican place. It was so good!
Saturday- I worked again, then packed for Melbourne trip Sunday.
Sunday- Woke up at 5AM! Caught a train at 6AM, got to my sister’s at 8:30AM, we picked up my little sister, went to a cafe for coffee (I had the fresh fruit juice, i don’t do coffee), then we got some sushi and listened to classic tunes all the way to my little nieces first birthday party. Was fun and lots of instant film photo’s were taken! Hung out with my sister’s till late, we ate dumplings, and made each other laugh (I could barely breath, I was laughing so hard), and just hung out.
Which brings me to today! I hung out with my best friend who just happens to be my twin sister Ben-ji-men (Benita), we slept in, she made me sweet potato with fresh salsa for Breakfast. We went on a mini adventure around Richmond and talked about spirituality and life in a gorgeous park. Then I caught a bus and train back home. Its good to be back in the country, no traffic to keep me up at night.
