Everything in life is somewhere else, and you get there in a car

Its 4:08pm and I have a lot of other things to do at work besides blogging. I woke up feeling pretty cranky and then had a work meeting at midday with my colleagues, which took place at a local eatery. The 4 of us were throwing around different ideas in relation to the software developed inhouse, and any enhancements that we’d like to see. I tried not to scowl as I sat there with my ray bans on, acid wash black teeshirt and skinny jeans. Its one of those days where I’d listen to Creep by Radiohead really loudly… if Rockband hadn’t killed it for me. ps I'm not a hipster I promise (see pic below if you don't believe me).

Other than that things are fine. I feel like I’m hanging out each week for the weekend, and eventually my day off each week – the day that will keep me sane and hopefully inspires me some. I’ve decided to do up a plan of action each Tuesday night to get things accomplished on that glorious Wednesday I’m building up so much. I know my schedule for the most part. I want to also fit in little things like going to a cute cafĂ© and reading a book, doing some sort of craft project some afternoons, being like a Queenslander at the beach and bumming around. Taking some fun class at the gym.

My friend J has started blogging again. Her blog “This is the last…” is a music blog with lots of interesting music you might not come across when you listen to mainstream radio. J is a quirky fun gal with character to boot – this comes out in her blog. I’m glad to have her back blogging again.

Here’s a pic of my husband and I on the weekend with our hired car. I wish we could say its ours.

Pfft, you may have grand plans now, but just admit that soon you'll be spending that Sunday in bed ;)

You're going to LOVE that day off each week, mark my words - there's nothing like fitting in some errands when shops are empty, people are happy and willing to serve you and the shelves are stocked. Then oh coffeeshops, walks, naps, books... yeah!

ps: When did you steal my car? LOL

Jones:
Thanks for the shoutout for my blog.

If you plan on spending the day hanging out at a coffee shop with a book, you should definitely head to the Pannikin in Encinitas.

Had a blast with ya guys Thursday.

That picture of you two is so lovely! I love how you can be wearing an entirely black outfit to a meeting with your colleagues and then be able to wear such a lovely summer white dress!

Thank you for your lovely comment too!
