This past week has actually gone by really quickly, I can’t believe it’s mid-April!
Africa holiday. I mentioned last week that I had decided to go on an African Safari holiday through Tanzania and Rwanda. Last weekend I forked over quite a sum of money for flights and the safari deposit, so that’s it, I’m really going!
Flexibility class. On Saturday I had my weekly flexibility class, and my stretchiness is definitely improving which is great.
Friends birthday dinner. One of my closest girlfriends turned 30 last Sunday so she left the kids at home with her parents and we caught up for dinner on the Saturday night which was awesome, we had a really good time.
Family catch up. On Sunday my partner and I caught up with my Dad and Step-Mum for lunch and then headed over to my grandparents place for afternoon tea. It was nice to catch up and spend some time together, we don’t really do it too often.
Monarto Zoo. I had a volunteer day on Wednesday and am now officially a “Mallee Minder”, yay! The highlight for the day up there was rounding up the wallabies for their vet check, oh man that’s a lot of effort.
I hope you all had a great week, if there are any highlights you’d like to share just add them in the comments!
I hope everyone had a great week last week. My week wasn’t too full on but a lot seemed to happen, some of which is pretty exciting!
Pole class. Last Saturday I was finally able to start classes again, with my dog being sick and then going on a holiday, and various other things, I missed a few weeks of it so it feels good to finally be back. Because it’s halfway through the term I’m just doing a couple of classes on a casual basis but it still feels good to be going in there again.
Monarto Zoo volunteer day. I had another volunteer day on Wednesday, just one more and I’ll be “qualified” yay! We did a lot of planting for feed and watering and checking/fixing irrigation.
Rhinos. Part of where we were planting on Wednesday was behind the rhino exhibit and while we were there I got to pat a rhino which is super cool!
Hair done. On Thursday I had an appointment with my hairdresser so I had a few blond foils put in, not heaps blond just like a caramel/honey colour to lighten the brown a bit, and then had a cut as well and it’s long enough now that I was able to get some layering done.
I’m going to Africa! One of the other volunteers at the Zoo has organised trips every now and then for groups of volunteers and the one he’s organising for next February is a safari tour around Tanzania and Rwanda. I decided to put my name down for it and am organising for my bank to pay deposits and all sorts this weekend. It’s 10 months away I know, but I’m pretty excited!
How was your week? Are there any highlights you’d like to share?
