Busy is an understatement.
Ever tried to visit somewhere that you lived for 6 years for just five days? It is all but impossible to see everyone and I end up running around like a headless chook to try make it happen.
Thurs: Fly in, hang out with Celia for the day, sunbathe and check out the beach side of Brisbane, which, would you believe, I’ve actually never been to! Off to Kim & Sophs for dinner & to stay the night.
Friday: meet Celia, have an appointment. Drive to Gold Coast, hang out at Harbour Town (accidentally end up with new yoga outfit) and have lunch. Celia drives me to Lauren’s. Catch up with Lauren, her Mum and Charlotte before quickly dressing and meeting Kat & Mike at Sage in Broadbeach for dinner. Drinks with more friends at Envy, home for an early night. Yeap I still have that annoying chest infection from two weeks ago.
Saturday: wake up to no voice due to steroid inhala. Have brunch with Lauren, shop quickly at Pacific Fair and have lunch. Lauren drives me to train station, Lisa picked me up in Yerongpilly as the train lines were out. Spend evening with Lisa with all intentions to go out but battling asthma. Get kotobuki & cider, fall asleep for 11 hours!!
Sunday: brunch with Lisa in Bulimba before being dropped at Ka Lei & Kierans for the night. Kwan Brothers for dinner and an excellent evening attempting to decide a date and destination for their wedding that I get to plan.
Monday: brunch cancelled on me so stayed in and worked for a few hours then met Pete for lunch and took bus back to Carindale to meet Celia and watch her clean her apartment after Flatty moved out. Chinese take aways for dinner.
Tuesday: bus for an hour to see Kylie at her salon where she fixes my hair. Muck around at salon & in area as lunch/ arvo plans cancelled. I’m looking at you Daran! Sushi for lunch, train to South bank, read book in park. Train to airport, spend time reading friends blogs then hop on plane.
That’s actually quieter than normal. Usually I’d organise some Sunday drinks or something similar but I was feeling so unwell.
Keep in mind I’m lugging around my handbag, carry on and laptop for all of this! Fun times on public transport, let me tell you!
Thank you to everyone who took time out and made an effort to see me! Those who cancelled, I hate you. Okay I still love you but just a tiny bit less. You can pick it back up next time. Those who I didn’t get to but would have loved to see, I’m coming for you, it won’t be long.
