Friday Favourites, 29 January

It has been another eventful week for me, though I haven’t been sleeping very well so am feeling really worn out and have a bit of a crick in my neck but nevertheless have had a great week.

Kayaking with Dad. I had some father/daughter time with my Dad last Saturday and we took the kayaks out for a bit which was nice.

Australia Day. Ok so it was a great day but man it is weird having a day off on a Tuesday, it’s like having a Monday on the actual Monday and another one on Wednesday! But it was a nice day I spent part of the day at the beach with my partner before heading off to the movies with a girlfriend.

Joy. The movie I went to see on Tuesday was Joy with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. It was an alright movie, it was about a woman who faced great odds to turn her dream into a reality, but oh my gosh her family annoyed me and I wanted to throw them out a window!

Monarto Zoo. This wasn’t really a visit, this was a volunteer information session, but the staff made it a bit special for us and we were taken out to the giraffe platform to see them feeding which was lovely. I’ll be going back for an interview in about a week and a half, wish me luck!

Local eatery open again! There’s a lunch bar down the street from work which has been closed for the last few weeks over Christmas and New Year and it only just opened back up today, so I was really excited to be able to go there and get banh mi for lunch today.

I hope you have all had a good week as well, let me know in the comments below what highlights you have to share.

Take care,

It has been a pretty busy week, things are really picking up at work, I’ve had a few work lunches on as well, so there’s lots been happening for me. Oh, and we had a sudden, fleeting storm this afternoon that was quite powerful and the office windows leaked!

Monarto Zoo. I feel like this has been a highlight pretty regularly lately, but I went up last Saturday with a couple of girlfriends because I still had that free entry pass from work, but also have a membership so they shared the free entry pass. It was such a beautiful day, and it was so good seeing everything, especially the giraffes!

Catch up with friends. On Sunday afternoon my partner and I headed over to a friends place and caught up with them and their kids. It was a nice afternoon so my girlfriend and I jumped in the pool and played with the kids.

Lunches! On Wednesday and Thursday I went out to lunch with some work mates I haven’t been able to catch up with for a while which was nice.

Makeup party. I love makeup and one of the ladies I used to work with has decided to become a sales rep for a brand called Younique, so I headed over to her place on Thursday night for a catch up and to check out the makeup as well. Catching up was great and a lot of the makeup was also really amazing.

Early Australia Day. Australia Day isn’t until next Tuesday, but at the office rethought it’d be nice to have a BBQ while we had everyone together which was nice.

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

Take care,

Jas
