So we have been back just over a week now – nothing yet everything has changed.
Perth is the same, yet different. I feel I am me, yet different… and this is about a coherent as I get with regards what I am feeling right now. Maybe, eventually, I will be able to put it into words for you all, but until then I am ready to focus on what I know, love and what makes me smile!
Getting back into a routine has been one of them and this week was great for that. Back to writing, back to training and back to cooking in my own kitchen! Yay!
So let me send you some smiles for the weekend and share with you all my first Friday Favourites in weeks!
Favourite… Moment – Sleep!
After some pretty killer jetlag it has been nice to get a good nights sleep again. Still tired throughout the day but I will take that if it means I don’t wake up in the middle of the night!
Favourite… Feeling – Hot Cappuccinos
It is freezing in Perth right now. Proper hat scarf and gloves winter type weather. Ok not as cold as back home in winter but believe me when I say that houses here are not made for the cold. But hot milky cappuccinos have been helping to warm my insides and keep me smiling!
Favourite… Purchase – Pip and Nut Crunchy Maple PB
We picked this up in Whole Foods back in the UK and it’s so so good. My problem is it is so nice that I don’t want to eat it – instead keep it for special things. Who knows what those ‘special things’ are… actually I just need to go at it with a spoon!
Favourite…Food/Drink – Dubai Dates
We sampled these dates in Dubai on the way to the UK. Bought 2 small bags. Then on the way home bought one huge bag to take back. Listen up – a huge Medjool date, stuffed with an almond, covered in chocolate and dusted with coconut… holy smokes they are good!
Updates – 5TTT and new episode of the Chase the Red Grape Podcast
This weeks 5 top tips looked at jetlag and how to battle it and keep your sanity!
Episode 34 of the podcast was all about our trip to the UK and our highlights! Such a fun one to record and a great way to check out what we got up to! iTunes, Stitcher or here on the blog!
Favourite… Moment of training – Community
We had some pretty bad WOD’s this week and I felt sore the entire time. But you know what, it was just nice to get back into a routine, see everyone and catch up. Those smiling faces at 6am each morning really do make my day.
Weekend Plans – Saturday – Coffee, IKEA, wine and food prep. Sunday – Pancakes and newspapers, recording the podcast and, fingers crossed, off to see Despicable Me 3!
Have a fab weekend folks!
