Friday Favourites

The last week has been a tough week for me, mostly because my dog was sick the last weekend so I was quite stressed and anxious about how she was doing of course, and also having had a couple of days off, work was really busy trying to catch everything up. But anyway, there were still a few highlights I can think of throughout the week.

Oxfam book sale. Oxfam have a second hand book store in the city and on the weekend they had a massive 50 cent book sale. So I went along to that and spent a whopping $5, I even went all out and spent 50 cents on my Dad – I know, I know, big spender right!

My fur baby came home. After being sick my dog finally came home on Monday night and has thankfully been back to her bright, happy self all week which is wonderful.

Waxing lady. I had my waxing done on Tuesday but didn’t realise that because Monday was a public holiday the vet fees wouldn’t come out until Tuesday which put my over my limit for card transactions so I couldn’t pay for my waxing. Fortunately my waxing lady is incredibly generous and allowed me to pay the following day which I am really grateful for.

Morning tea. I caught up with the girls for morning tea on Wednesday which was nice, it’s something we haven’t been able to do as frequently but it’s always good to catch up for a giggle.

 

Presentation practice. One of my staff and I are doing a webinar with our clients on Monday, so this afternoon we did a rehearsal for what we were going to say during the presentation. It went really well and we feel quite prepared, we have our talk tracks and links and things to do for each other all ready so I think it’ll be a success.

How has your week been? Are there any highlights you’d like to share?

Take care,

Friday Favourites, 20 November

What a busy week it has been for me this week. I’ve got my 30th birthday party coming up this weekend so I have been frantically trying to get everything finalised for that! But there were still some highlights thrown in there.

A Wedding. Not mine I’m sad to say. My partner’s cousin got married last weekend, it was quite lovely, the food was a bit over the top but it was still a nice venue and beautiful weather.

Family catchup. My partner’s sister came down from Darwin for the wedding so it was really great to see her and be able to catch up with her.

Early birthday present. When the girls and I had our regular Wednesday morning catch up, they gave me my birthday present early which was lovely. There was a voucher for makeup and a voucher for books, two of my favourite things!!

First 121s with my staff. As the new manager I have taken over catching up with the staff in 121s each fortnight and these first ones were really positive experiences, and I found really constructive and gave me a good indication of what direction each of the staff want to take with the team and with their own careers.

Picking up my cake! Tonight I am picking up the cake for my birthday, and I’m super excited to see what it looks like!

How has your week been? Lots of highlights for you I hope!

Take care,
