Weekly Wrap: 15/5


  1. There’s no place like home. We spent most of this week in PosyTown with our family, and it was great to spend time with everyone, but it felt so good flying back in to Harbour City on Thursday night.
  2. With that said, after four and a half days snuggling my eight-week old nephew, it felt like my heart was being ripped out when it came time to hand him over and leave…
  3. Visiting PosyTown for the first time since we left two and a half years ago was a bit surreal. In some ways, it has changed a lot, and in other ways it was still the same. I did not enjoy the relentless heat and humidity – I don’t know how I lived there for as long as I did! On the other hand, it was nice to not have to worry about traffic (I can’t believe I used to think the roads were busy – hilarious!)… Drivers can merge and use roundabouts without holding up traffic, and I was never more than twenty minutes by car from where I needed to be – the roads were familiar and I always knew where I was going. It was certainly very ‘easy’ being back, but Harbour City is definitely home.
  4. We flew with Virgin Australia for the first time in I don’t know how many years, which meant I finally found a use for my old iPad 2 that I had relegated to the bottom of a drawer – in flight entertainment. The VA app had an interesting range of content, but it kept me entertained on both legs of the trip; the food was okay and the service was pretty good – no complaints, but I definitely still prefer the ol’ Flying Kangaroo…
  5. I went back to work Friday to get through emails, set myself up for this coming week, and make it that bit easier (psychologically) to get back into the swing of things. There’s something about coming back to work for a day and then having the weekend – it makes getting back into a five day week that much easier.
  6. We went to see Dave Thornton at The Comedy Store last night – I haven’t laughed so much in ages.
  7. Mr Posy, PosyDog and I clocked up 31km walking around this weekend (according to the app on my phone). No wonder my legs are aching! I love Autumn walks – gorgeous sunny days, and they are cool enough to walk for hours without breaking a sweat. I discovered on this morning’s walk through Centennial Park that there is a new cygnet at the Duck Pond. So cute and fluffy!
  8. I realised this morning that I am finally feeling well, and it feels great. Let’s hope it lasts…

    Oh how I miss Posy Town especially now that Canberra has entered winter

      You would have loved it – it was so hot and humid while we were there. Dad said it cooled down as soon as we left… Of course!

    I am a huge fan of batch cooking too. Like you, it helps me avoid ordering takeaways in desperation during the week.

      My soup stash saved me a few nights this week!
