Weekly Wrap: 28/2

Rolling in the deep (Palm Beach)

  1. I’ve had a bit of a rough week, and I am finding myself questioning everything… WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?
  2. PosyDog’s wound is healing well. The site is still a little inflamed, but so far we seem to have avoided infection, which is excellent. She’s in very good spirits (actually, she’s better than ever – go figure), and she still has a raging appetite, so I am feeling a lot less stressed about the whole thing now. Poor little monkey.
  3. I took a flex day on Wednesday and it was bliss. I could feel myself really struggling late last week, so I asked my boss if I could take a day off midweek. For the first time ever, I didn’t schedule in any Life Admin for my day off – I planned to just relax, starting with a sleep-in… So of course I was wide awake at 5.30am! Frustrating, given that I could barely drag myself out of bed at 7am in the days before and after. I started the day with my favourite breakfast at one of my favourite establishments (coconut quinoa bircher at Ruby’s Diner) while reading the papers, and had an hour long relaxing massage in the afternoon. The massage was more excruciating than relaxing; I hadn’t realised just how seized up/completely trashed my muscles were until I was on the massage table and nearly crying out in pain.
  4. I love MKR and was really excited about its return this year, but I really lose interest by the time they get to the THIRD round of instant restaurants. It’s too much. Get to the challenges already…
  5. I feel like my skin is so grey and lacklustre lately – I think it’s just a by-product of the chest infection that I had in January (I’m not yet 100% and the cough is still lingering), but it’s a bit of a shock when I see my reflection in the mirror some days.
  6. Friday morning I walked out my front door to see my camellias in bloom! It made my week.
  7. Despite the soaring temperatures this week, I can feel the season slowly slipping away. In addition to my camellias flowering, the morning and afternoon light is changing – it’s so much softer. I love it, even if it does mean that the cooler months are on their way.
  8. Fuller House dropped on Netflix this weekend, so I spent the better part of Saturday watching the entire season in one go. I know the critics have slammed it, but I loved it. I cried in every episode (the opening credits alone set me off), and I laughed until it hurt. Yeah it was cheesy, but so was the original. Full House was one of my favourite childhood TV shows, and the reboot was like a warm hug. It was nostalgia done right.
  9. I picked up a packet of the pineapple and coconut water Frosty Fruits instead of the regular tropical flavour when I did my weekly shop (don’t shop while hungry, or when it feels like it’s a million degrees outside), and they are delicious. Summer on a stick.
  10. With better weather this weekend, Mr Posy and I made the most of it, with a long walk in Centennial Park with PosyDog on Saturday morning, and a trip up to Palm Beach on Sunday. I had this weird hankering to walk up to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse, so we grabbed coffee from the Boathouse and then made the trek to the top. As I mentioned above, I’m feeling a little lost at sea at the moment, and can’t help but see the symbolism in being drawn to a towering signpost and its shining beacon. Hopefully I’ll feel more settled soon.

    Yeah I had about a fortnight recently of feeling that way too – like nothing was going right, what am I doing with myself, everything’s a mess, etc. I just whinged to friends and rode it out. Hope it’s gotten better for you too x
