Reverse Travel Journal # 3 – Day 9

What a weird kinda lazy but really busy day.  It poured rain again today so Goose was bored out of her brains of course.

Todd and i skyped  this morning for the first time in like a year which was nice and I’m uber excited to see him in a few weeks.

After some sewing, David helped me brainstorm some money making schemes but we didn’t get very far haha. So i spent the rest of the day and night posting about $300 worth of crap up on eBay, Hopefully  i can get double that back. And i’ll do it all again tomorrow (i have a lot of crap).

I was going to actually leave the house tonight to visit Hugh & Haley at an event Hugh was throwing but the anxiety i have been having this last week brought on a migraine and i ended up drugging up and working very slowly.

I  tested myself today. I decided to give myself a weekend pass from my sugar free diet but when i got to woolies i only ended up buying sugar free anyway! I guess I’m just used to it now. I really wanted to treat myself though so i grabbed this Cherry Ripe, mostly so i could do this…


I’m sorry you didn’t get to watch the Mariners game.

Good luck today & i hope you feel better. We miss you. ❤

Reverse Travel Journal # 3 – Day 5

Day 5. Feels like forever now. I miss you heaps. Hope you’re having fun in San Fran today while i sleep & I wish I was there with you.

Standard day for us here, work (still feeling good on day 5 of sugar free),  jog with Luce and back to sewing with a quick photo shoot to send out some pics for feedback on the range so far. Running out of time! Aaggghhhh!!!!

This is where i live now…

Reverse Travel Journal # 3 – Day 4

As i said before, i don’t know how much of my day is worth telling you about when i stay at home sewing all day lol. More fabric shopping in the morning and a day watching the red carpet for the Oscars (held near you in Hollywood!) the highlight of my day being when an Argentinian guy came to our door and showed me his collection of oil paintings (obv for sale which i had to decline of course) but they were really amazing.

I was going to throw out your flowers today but i couldn’t because they remind me of you. So i’m just going to watch them die. I think they still look  pretty.


Sugar-free is still on track, although i have loosened up a little bit. Finished sewing piece 9 of 12 pieces today so getting pretty happy that i’m on track and excited for the Photo shoot.

So excited for you to go to San Fran tomorrow. Jealous.

Reverse Travel Journal # 3 – Day 3

Lucy was really stressed out last night when we went to bed because she couldn’t find you, she kept going to your side and whinging. It’s adorable but concerning how attached she is to you.

Today Tim, Suzi and the crew went to get drunk at Soundwave while lil’ ol’ Laraine stays home sewing.  Lucy & i for a long arse jog (in 30 degree heat) and were both pretty exhausted after that.


I picked your parentals up from the airport around lunch and we watched the Mariners game, which was ridiculously good. Then, back to work. My posts for the next 2 weeks are probably going to be just me sewing, Lucky you!


Thanks for the Skype date (big smile). Miss you heaps already.

Good luck on day 2  tomorrow.
