I have also been laying off the exercise for the past week too. Remember how I told you about my fantastic 5km run? Well, whilst I did feel good after my run, my sleep that night was a different story. I struggled to sleep as my rib was sore. I also woke up in the night struggling to take some nice big breaths that my body was craving. And I was really, really sore the next day. So, I decided to skip the gym and all exercise whilst I wait for my body to heal. I will be spending over 24 hours on a plane on the weekend, so I really can't have sore ribs. The good thing is that I finally feel like I'm getting better and I'm in very little pain.
I thought I would let you know what I have been up to over the last week in photos.
I spent a couple of days studying multi-storey developments in inner-city Melbourne. We spent a day looking at the plans of the development and then the next day we got to go out and have a look at it.
This is the view from the penthouse apartment on the 5th floor. It is amazing, however it should be for $2 million - yup, that is how much the three bedroom with one living area apartment cost!
I caught up with the lovely ladies from North West Melbourne 12WBT for dinner, not once but twice!! I love catching up with these ladies and having a good chat about everything. They are such a lovely group and are so supportive. I'm going to miss them when I am away.
I even spent a few hours in Footscray doing a few bits and pieces. If you are ever in Footscray I recommend that you head over to the Olympic Doughnut next to the train station and grab yourself a few hot jam doughnuts. They are the best jam doughnuts in the world!
I have been so busy at work trying to get everything finished before I leave. Wednesday was my last day of work and I ended up being the last person to leave the office at 6:10pm! Thankfully I managed to get everything finished and I was so happy to leave.
I have been packing my bags for the trip. I think I have just about finished packing and I am well under the maximum baggage allowance, which is fantastic. I'm going to do heaps of shopping when I'm away!!
|I think the kitty wants to come to Europe too.|
And of course, I have been spending a lot of time with my baby Roxy as she is going to miss me so much when I am away. The thought of not seeing her for 6 weeks makes me so sad. I keep telling her that B and I are going away, however I don't think she understands.
|Hmmm... she looks creepy again...|
I'm getting excited as in just over 24 hours B and I will be making our way to the airport. I seriously don't think I will sleep tonight! And luckily for you, my laptop is now in tiptop shape, so I will be able to blog whilst I'm away!!!!
