So the last few months…

Well everyone while I’ve been not blogging a fair bit has happened…

  • I completed my 2nd Masters degree…4 long years of doing 2 subjects a semester is over…now I was planning on having a break and not studying for a fair while, if at all…except I have to do studies in Religion this year.
  • I’ve still been losing weight…I’ve lost over 43kg (over 95lbs) since the start of 2015…so in 13 months!!!  Oh and before you ask I will put a photo up…later though, this is a relatively quick post before going to bed.
  • I happened to run into Novak Djokovic whilst walking down a laneway in Melbourne a couple of days before the Australian Open started!!!  Yes I definitely got a photo of him.
  • I went to the filming of Masterchef and saw Nigella and then went to see her talk at a different event.
  • I decided rather randomly to buy a new car.
  • I’ve had my first ever sporting injury as part of the whole losing weight thing…which has been the world’s most annoying injury!!!

#FMSPHOTOADAY day 101-109


Day 101 – this smells so good.  I went to a cooking demonstration by Dan Hong while I was in Sydney and he made his prawn toast and oh my god it smelled amazing.


Day 102 – something green…a little green roof cabin on the Pyrmont Bridge in Sydney.


Day 103 – paper…my plane ticket for the flight back from Sydney to Dubbo.


Day 104 – up…Taken somewhere above Sydney from the plane.


Day 105 – dinner…given I was in the process of moving I bought pizza.


Day 106 – where I work.  Well this isn’t my usual work location.  But it was the location of the day…moving boxes in my car.


Day 107 – ordinary moment.  Yes it is just a washing machine, but it’s the first one that I’ve owned and it was delivered on Friday and I got it into the house on my own and took the plastic off it and set it all up on my own, which was rather impressive.


Day 108 – fluffy…a drink I got in New York which had fairy floss in the taller glass and then you had to pour the drink over it.


Day 109 – together…bacon and eggs go perfectly together with Sunday morning breakfast after church.

Write, every day of your life 66/365

Seven days…You wake up tomorrow morning to find all your plans have been cancelled for the next seven days and $10,000 on your dresser. Tell us about your week.

I would go on holidays for a week…I could do a week in New York for under $10,000 and have plenty of spending money, flights, a decent hotel and have a great week.  No thought required there, no asking a second time.  New York without a second hesitation.  I had a great week there almost 4 years ago and want to go back!!!
