Hello! As always, I’ve been super busy with the work and sleep thing, but this is going to change very soon. You see, I have two weeks away from work beginning Monday morning. Two weeks to wind down, relax, sleep at night like a normal person and to do some touristy things with M.
I timed my leave to coincide with the end of her exams, so we’re going to do a lot of driving around the Sunshine Coast and see and do the things we want to do. The list includes visiting the Glasshouse Mountains, Eumundi Markets, Noosa and to climb Mt Coolum. That could be done in a day or two but we’re not going to rush it. Plus there’ll be the drives to Montville, Maleny and wherever else the car takes us. If we’re adventurous we may even make it to Bundaberg.
I’ve been to Noosa only for work so I’m yet to experience what else the place has to offer. The Eumundi Markets I went to many years ago, so it’ll be nice to go again. And Mt Coolum. I’ve never climbed it, but apparently it can be done easily in 45 minutes, so we’ll probably allow an hour to go up and watch the sun rising over the ocean. It may be harder to climb in jeans, but the alternative is shorts. In Winter. With bonus mosquito bites.
Remind me to visit the sheepskin shop on the drive home from Noosa. I want/need moccasins.
Speaking of woolly footwear, last year my parents sent me some Snox. They’re like slippers made from wool and are nice and comfy in this weather. But they don’t have a sole. I hadn’t worn them since last year when I put them on two weeks ago and proceeded to head downstairs. Did I mention the stairs are polished wood? So I
kinda went for a fall. One foot stayed still, yet the knee on that side made it one step below, hands were out to help the fall, but it was no good. My knee was aching, so too my hands. My arm bruised and a toe felt broken. It has only felt better today, that toe. So much pain.
This break is going to be so great to freshen my mind and body. I’ve had two weeks of leave in the past two years, six weeks in the past four years, so I’m spent, both physically and mentally. It won’t take long to go into day mode after a seemingly never-ending run of graveyard shifts, but to be able to wake at 5am and go to bed at 8pm is going to be magic.
I so can’t wait!
