Summer Music Festivals

Aside from normal new years resolution (lose weight, run marathon, be healthy blah blah blah) we made a pact to go to more summer music festivals this year. So far this year we have just been to one (last weekend) and Summer isn't over until, well... actually the end of this month but its still more than last year so we are still ahead. On Friday, the boy packed up the car and picked me up from work and we drove 3 hours North of Melbourne for the Riverboat Festival. The venu was perfect, with strings of white lanterns amongst the rivergums, lots of places to sit and watch the stage (over the water), food, bars, everything! The campsite was cool too (warm showers, pool, bbq area... what else can you ask for?). Unfortunately we left it to late so we couldn't get a campsite in the town, we got a place about 8km away from the event and we brought bicycles with us and rode there and back (which made it more fun... for me anyway because I got to ride the good bike). Stand out act for the festival was Ryan Meeking - actually the first act we saw when we walked through the gates on Saturday. Brilliant guitarist and beautiful voice.

Lanie Lane was stunning and The Audreys were fantastic too. Overall a great way to spend the weekend!

I must remember to pump up the mattress in future because sleeping on a partly deflated air bed has given me the most uncomfortable pain in my neck! Seriously I used to sleep ANYWHERE... now I can't sleep on planes and I can't sleep on deflated furniture? What is going on? Is this because I am getting old? Damn it... I am not ready yet! I also can't turn my head to the left without wanting to cry. Not to worry... I have my chair positioned so I can see both screens without turning my head and a packet of neurofen on standby. It will all be fine.

The rest of the week is going to be quite - finish last assignment (ever) tonight, see a Soul band on Thursday night and hopefully pick up my Treadmill on Saturday .... whoop whoop whoop!

Love to all

First Post for 2012

Christmas is done and so is January... 2012 is well and truly underway! I just had a look through my archives and it turns out I have been blogging since 2008. Thats 4 years almost, and although I used to be a prolific blogger, for the last 6 months or so I have been a bit slack. Maybe its because I have less to say (or more to the point less to complain about?) and I think also I am busier and so prioritise my time differently. I am working on my last semester at uni. I have a month left! Well actually 15 days considering my last exam is on the 29th of this month. Jeepers... Anyway this blog is for me so I don't have to update all the time

Valentines Day today ... I got some chocolates which is lucky because I forgot breakfast this morning. Shhh... stop judging me on my not so healthy meal choice. I am going to balance it out by buying a treadmill. I am juggling between a manual or motorised treadmill. Living in the tiny apartment that I do, my neighbours would probably prefer and my floor space will probably only allow for a manual one and it looks like I can get a manual treadmill new for the same price as a motorised treadmill used and missing the on/off switch... so. Having said that, people running on manual treadmills look gummy and unnatural and if I am going to invest in a massive dust collector I should probably go for one I am a little more likely to use. I need a bigger apartment. And more money. (In actual fact... I like my apartment and my income mostly but really can you ever have enough space or cash? No I don't think you can).

We have the execs in town again... fun fun fun... so all hands on deck, and actually I think I missed this level of activity in the office. Its been so quiet since German boss left and French boss tried to move the operation to Sydney. Now it looks like we can stay here - which works for me for now. There is a music festival this weekend that I am super pumped to be going to ... actually haven't bought tickets but I have booked the campsite. And that pretty much sums up my year so far... gosh I am exciting!
