April Adventures Continued

When I left off I mentioned that I was making friends. In addition to spending time with friends, Sundays I have now being going to the club. Yes, I’ve started going to the raffles with my nan and pop. It’s been really good to have a day where I am with them because I can see how pop is and if he is having a good or bad day.

Of course this is my Sunday treat when I go. Can’t really complain with that right 🙂

So now to fully address my unhealthiness. I do feel a little ashamed for continuing saying I’m going to get healthy but then go back on my word. Hey, I never said I was perfect. It got to a point where my friend and I have stopped going to Zumba. This is because of work and the shifts we have during the week. My shifts are 9-5 whereas she has now been having shifts from 11-6 or 6-10. Not great for when you need to go to Zumba at 5.

I have also halted my yoga in the mornings. This halt is due to vigorous study and hectic preparation for workshops and mock interviews. I have to say, it was a good choice to halt my yoga because the extensive study has helped me to pass all of my assessments. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to get back into it.

I may have halted my yoga but I have been spending more time with this beautiful boy:

He has been my calm through all of the storms I have been facing. I mean he is just BEAUTIFUL!

Anyway this has been April for me and I’m super excited for May and all that may come.

Until next time xx

April Adventures

April hasn’t been particularly great with posts. In fact it hasn’t been any. Today I thought ‘why not update on my month’ so here I am.

First off I’m going to pay my respects to ALL Soldiers who have lost their lives. Today is ANZAC Day and a special day for me personally. My pop was in the Vietnam War however he passed away last year so as a tribute my uncles went in the march to honor him. Just wanted to say that I love and miss him like crazy.

Lets we forget.

As for me, April has been crazy, hectic, beautiful, wonderful, mad and altogether amazing. Let me begin by saying, no I have NOT remained healthy. Family (mainly my dad) have been visiting and I have been working a lot. Not to mention study. Speaking of study, I have now completed my foundation units as well as my pracs with those units and on the way to gaining access to my full course.

I am so proud of my self this month. Not only have I completed all my written body of work but also managed to complete my verbal and practical body of work. Though, I have to say speaking is sometimes not my strong point. However, I gt through it and was even told by the assessor that I did really well and maintained a warm and friendly approach through the whole assessment. *HAPPY DANCE*

Dad came down to visit- from Queensland- twice. The first time he came, it was Ben and I’s third year anniversary. Crazy right? I have actually been in a relationship for 3 years and 1 month (as of writing this post). The second time I didn’t think he would make it as he was on the bus and had to go through flood water. He made it and when he came up started my love of Chinese food. I don’t usually eat Chinese but when dad was up, we had a nice little lunch date which started my love for it. We found a nice little restaurant and I got a Mongolian Beef. My goodness it was AMAZING!

Dad even helped me out in the garden. I was inspired by the garden looking so good that I even created a few little pots:

I haven’t taken a picture of the work done to the garden as there is still more (a lot more) work to do. Plus these guys are super cute and even though this picture is taken when I first started them, as a proud beginner with gardening, it is important to know that they are growing. For me to have plants growing is super exciting as I seem to have them dying on me usually. Fingers crossed.

My uncles have been up from Sydney for a visit and in fact are coming up again tomorrow, this time bringing my cousin. My Aunt had even visited with one of my little cousins which was pretty awesome to see them.

This month I have even been seeing more of my friends. I mean I have been making time and the effort to reconnect or connect with old and new friends. That has been really great and really surprising to see that I do still have the capability to make friends.

This post will be continued 🙂 It’s a bit hard to get all on one month in as well as provide details of the adventures had but I think I’m doing ok.

Until next time xx

Escape Room

As you guessed it…. I fell asleep on Friday after dancing. Hence why no post. Then of course other stuff happened which lead me in Newcastle which is why I haven’t been able to post how amazing dancing was until now.

So to start, dancing was awesome. I both learnt and received my first lap dance.Now you have to remember that this was a Valentines Day workshop and an all girls class….. naturally we had to practice with each other. Well it started off that we could just seduce a chair. As crazy as that sounds. Then it got to a part where we really had no choice but to practice on each other. Luckily, I had my friend with me otherwise we would have had to practice on random people.

In short though, Friday night was absolutely amazing.

On Saturday morning, Ben and I ended up going to Newcastle for his brother’s birthday. For his birthday celebration thing, the family went to an escape room. I had no idea what it was therefore I was expecting some kind of cell or something like that in which we had to escape. It wasn’t anything like that. It was more of a room (quite a large room) set up to look like a laboratory. The goal was to find keys and codes using clues in the room to eventually make your escape. Oh and we were on a time limit of 50 minutes. To some that seems like a lots of time but when you need to think about where keys and codes are, its not as much time as you think.

We did it though. We worked as a team and found the final code that lead to our freedom. Not that we were in any real danger. The place were we went had three of these rooms that you could choose from. Each one had a different difficulty- we did the easiest one because of two reasons. 1. We didn’t know what to expect and 2. the guy running it suggested we do the easiest because we only had six people.

Later that night, we went to the pub for dinner. The pub had karaoke on that night so that’s what we did after our dinner. To be honest, I don’t like pubs. I mean, I like to maybe have a drink there if I’m hot or have a cheap meal but I don’t like them other then a quick visit. So you can imagine that I definitely didn’t like to stay there until midnight.

To be fair though, I was enjoying myself with Ben and his family…… that was until I had beer split on me from drunk old ladies. That quickly made me realize why I don’t like pubs or clubs for that matter. Drunk people. Especially when the old drunk ladies were trying to hit on Ben. That just furthered my annoyance but I kept my cool and continued to watch Ben and his siblings do karaoke. Away from everyone mind you.

So then today. It was a great weekend and I loved spending time with his (soon to be mine too) family and also help out with his two amazing lil nephews but the heat today was absolutely horrible. I mean the heat is like you are in a volcano. We drove home today and the whole trip  we were just super excited to actually get home inside and have a cold shower. So when we finally pulled up and got out of the car our excitement grew. We went to open the gate…… to find out that our roommate had pad locked us out. Yeah, actually pad locked us out.

He knew we were coming home today because before we left we spoke to him about it and had even left a note the morning we left. We knew he was home so we rang to house phone to get him to open it-no answer. We rang his mobile-no answer. Ben climbed the wall to get him to opened the gate which of course he almost broke his leg in the process. Once he finally came out he acted as if he didn’t know we were coming home. The heat may (did) get to me because I snapped and went of at him and then went on a rant about how he did know.

Anyway, we are home now and cooled off enough to act civil again- by that I mean me. Other then today though it has been an amazing couple of days.

Until next time xx
