The things I love about Christmas - Day 1

Wow, my blogging has been terrible, it was never meant to be like this… but alas I have lost my touch. Sorry to anyone that was reading this regularly, because I have let you down, however, I would imagine that most of you hadn’t even noticed that I had stopped. In fact all they way back in August this is something I had written ready to publish, but never did because I never had the time...

I am not really sure how this happened, but its already August and all of a sudden July is gone… and apparently so did my ability to blog on a regular basis… sorry about that… I will try to make this month Accountability August and be a little more regular.
And now here we are 4 months later and I am still sitting in disbelif... I can’t believe that December is already here… it always seems to sneak up on me and I think that as I have gotten older I have gotten busier and I have lost all those key indicators, I suppose you could call them that remind me its Christmas time. You know like at school when you start just doing worksheets and every second has a Christmas theme, or at uni when you go on summer holidays… now that I am a fully fledged adult I don’t get them and sometimes I wonder if perhaps I could skip it altogether and not even notice? Who knows?

Anyway, in an attempt to be more regular once again with this blog, I thought I might do something a little bit different and a little bit random, which seems fitting given the title of this blog… what I would like to do… actually do you know what… its not actually random at all, in fact now that I think about it, its probably a bit cliché… anyway, what I want to do is for the next 25 days tell you something that I love about Christmas… because I do really really love Christmas.

The first thing that I love about Christmas… well the first thing purely for organisation reasons… is advent calendars, when else in the year is it ok to eat a small amount of chocolate everyday? Never… and that’s why I love Christmas!

Today is my first day back at work after a month off and I feel like reality has hit me hard. Its not that my patients have been mean, or that work is particularly hard today, its just that for so long I haven’t really had to do anything… and now I am just not sure if I like it all that much.
Its not really a secret, but I just really don’t think I am made for full time work. I know that at my current stage of life it is more of a necessity than anything, but sometimes I wonder why it has to be.

I guess the difference for me today is that going back to work doesn’t mean just going back to work, it also means putting all my stuff back in my car and heading back to Castlemaine and away from Dave. This is what I think sucks the most, going back to work means going back to living by myself and saying goodbye to the luxury of having my old life so close. I know that in a few days time I will be fine and it will be like I was never on holidays, but for now I am just having a whinge.

Speak a little louder next time

So I am just not sure how well this story will translate into blog world… but I will try my best, but it may turn out to be one of those had to be there moments, so bare with me and know that I had the best intentions.

Today I had lunch with Dave and Dad in the city, we went to a little resturant, which I think was called noodle world, but I am not sure, anyway Dad picked the restaurant and implied to Dave and I that he had never been there before and that this was all a new experience for him and for us, just saying ‘This will do, just sit down’. The place was quite cool with the tick box/do it yourself menus and it was, at the beginning anyway, a beautiful sunny day.

Anyway as the lunch went on it came out that Dad had been there before so I was having a bit of a go and saying quite loudly “oh this place looks nice, lets go in (and then a little louder) JUST SIT DOWN ALREADY’. Anyway, unbeknown to me just in front of us were two mean looking for a table to sit down and on hearing my exclamation decided that really did need to sit down quickly as they thought I was talking to them…. Needless to say I had put my foot in my mouth and I was very very embarrassed, I did apologise, but the damage was done. Luckily for me they too saw a least some of the humour.

So there you go, better in real life, but not bad in a blog

It's Begun

Its official, the wedding preparations have started. Today I have been gallivanting across the coast with Kitty and Brad looking at all kinds of places that Dave and I could possibly use as a reception venue. Some of the highlights of today’s expedition:

1. Brad’s Driving

2. Kitty’s commitment to the cause – despite the fact that because of my poor memory she had to take her own car

3. Picnic point and its hidden gem – the Sandringham Yacht Club

4. Brad’s voice memos

Jersey Boys... Again

I have seen Jersey Boys for the last time. And despite the fact that tonight was the 6th time I had seen the show I am actually really sad to see it go. 

It is seriously one of the best musicals ever and my feelings for it haven't really changed since the very fist time I saw it… but I think what makes me most sad to see it go, is that since the proposal, each time I saw the show, the ‘can’t take my eyes off you’ scene would still give me tingles as I reminisced about every thing that happened that fateful day in April (which just in case you haven’t already you can read all about here).  I guess I loved the fact that I could almost revisit that moment over and over and over again whenever I wanted, but now I will have to do it in my mind instead.

Farewell Jersey Boys... Maybe I will be lucky enough to see you in Sydney...
