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 1 – Life is Boring Without You

There were no shows at the theatre today, just a piano sale I had to oversee. Can’t believe i get paid for this shit. One of the more boring days i have had in my life, but at least the pianos are pretty…

Spent all 9 hours editing pics, blogging about Vegas and watching 30 Rock.

I still didn’t have any food at home and woolies was closed cos it’s Sunday, so i just kept driving until i hit a Foodworks in the back end of Marrickville. It’s pretty damn scary out there. I Bought Lucy some pigs feet and she LOVES THEM. I didn’t hear a peep from her for 2 hours!! Suzi toook her for a walk today and they had a picnic in the park. Isn’t that cute?!?

Also, i died my hair. Hope you like it! Will have a pic for you tomorrow. Taped Hamish & Andy for you, it is SOO FUNNY.

So proud of your finish today, you really crushed ’em. Good luck tomorrow!!!!!!

10 Days


P.s. Look what Hales found in her room today…lol

Reverse Travel Journal 1 – Day 10: IKEA

Today i went to our local Ikea store (don’t worry, it was a r&h funded trip) to buy chairs for the market. But while i was there (now you should worry) i bought a desk for $30! (Although it is a work expense so i should be able to claim it). Ikea really is the way of the future. No sales assistants, everyone going in the same direction, it’s so… organised. And you’ll be glad to know i somehow resisted the sensual allure of the $1 hot dog. I left Lucy at home alone in the house for the first time while i was gone. When i came back nothing was ruined, bitten or broken and i was very proud.

We went for a walk in the arvo. It was a really nice day again which to me is a sign that i’m doing everything right in life. We ran into a few dogs on the way but Lucy got so excited and started panting hard core and it frightened the dogs, and their owners. But on a positive note she is getting used to the places we go; the coffee shop, Woolies the post office and sits out the front without whinging. She’s also getting better at sitting before crossing the road and when I stop to take pics.

Little did Lucy know that Uncle Jarry and Uncle Ady where waiting at the house when we got back. She was pretty excited.

I think you know by now (and are uber jealous) that we all enjoyed a super delicious meal at Rocksia. The boys enjoyed cocktail hour watching the Bulldogs vs St George. Bulldogs won of course 28-20. This is what you missed out on…mmmmmmm…

The journey to Newtown was epic. After picking up brant and leaving the car at the station we caught a train, stopped off for a beer, caught another train and didn’t end up getting there till 11.30pm.

Highlights of the night : Jarryds catch cry “gamble, GAMBLE!”, Brants favourite song : Blow my whistle, beer skulling through a straw competition and Jarryd shuffle dancing for male attention.
