Well the count down is on! One week today I will be back in Scotland – and I can’t wait!
Just over 3 weeks of holidays with family, friends and all the goodies of home that I have missed. I am so excited and so ready for a break away too.
To celebrate my pre holiday week excitement, I thought I would do a much loved ‘Week In Review’, linking up with the lovely Meg over @CleanEatsFastFeets. Checking in and highlighting all the wonderful achievements from last week, big and small.
So let’s get to it! Here are all my ‘great job Jen’ high five moments from the week just gone!
Catching up with friendsOur friends have arrived from the UK and are with us through to the weekend. It was lovely catching up and hearing all the ins and outs of their lives. As it always is with good friends, even though you haven’t seen each other for 2 years, you just pick up where you left off, as if no time had passed.
Breaking my routines
Having guests means that your daily routines go out the window. For someone who works from home, alone and thrives from routine this is definitely a bit jerking and scary but I’m doing so much better than I imagined I would. Very proud actually!
Yup this is where I will put in (and rightly so) that I did the usual weekly shops, meal planning and food prep, washing, ironing and banking. Not to mention the ‘pre guest’ apartment clean which is always a bit more thorough than normal!
We also did a lot of holiday adulting like transferring over money, working out hire cars and mobile data while we are away. Gotta be done!
Tour Guide This weekend David and I played tour guide for our friends and took them to Fremantle and the Swan Valley. We took them to our favourite places but also managed to try a few new things.
The Swan Valley yesterday in particular was beautiful. So peaceful.
I made appointments and partook in a lot of self care. Major pat on the back for me there. I made and had a sports massage, have booked to have my hair cut on Thursday and need to make an appointment for getting my nails done on Saturday.
Finalising and scheduling 5 top tip posts and podcast episodesWeekly 5 top tip on a Tuesday posts and podcast episodes will still be coming to you while we are away! I have written, recorded and scheduled all the posts and podcasts and they are ready and waiting to rock. I am so excited to share these with you. Make sure you keep checking in!
Still training 4 times per week but am looking forward to this 3 week break coming up. Both mind and body need it!
And last but not least… finished the latest series of Kimmy Schmidt. Think it might have been the best so far… but that might have been because Titus is featured more!
Happy Monday folks!
Tell me something you did last week?
Are you going on holiday/vacation sometime soon?
When was the last time you made an appointment for some self care?
