Wordless Wednesday: With a few words

Well hello there!

It’s been over two months since I last posted – disgusting, I know.

Yes, I have been trying to continue on the quest to do ‘something new’ each week of my life and some weeks I manage, and some weeks I don’t. I guess that’s called ‘life’, right?

I’ve had some great times (holidays with family, fun times with friends), and I’ve had some shitty times (my cat Olly passing away) over the last couple of months…. and I’ve had the times where I’ve just enjoyed sitting alone on the couch at home.

Just Emmett and I now ❤

I’ve travelled (to China!), I’ve raced (on the Great Wall!), and my latest accomplishment in life is getting back into the gym – with a personal trainer! – to get this body back to its full potential 🙂

China!

Great Wall Half Marathon

Smashing it at the gym!

And halfway through 2019, life is generally good!

  • Exam results come out soon
  • September sees a holiday to the USA with a wedding and lots of friend catch-ups in the mix
  • October sees the start of more studies
  • We still have 6 months to make this year GREAT!

Next lot of studies 🙂

2019 Week 16 – Quiz night at DOSC

A couple of week’s ago a colleague of mine sent out an email asking if anyone would be interested in making a quiz team for a corporate night out.
Somehow I then landed up being in charge of sorting the team out (always happy to be arranging social events LOL) and so a team of 5 was put together and we all then headed down to Dubai Offshore Sailing Club for the inaugural Lighthouse Quiz night.

They had about 13 teams, each with around 5 or 6 people, so it was a fabulous, busy night.

The questions were incredibly difficult and really had us all working hard to guess (yup, most of it was guesswork) the answers.

But, we ended up coming joint third place so I have zero complaints 🙂

2019 Weeks 12 through to 15 (Whoops!)

OK OK… I get it. You’re tired of hearing me come up with random excuses as to why I once again haven’t updated my something new posts.

I hereby declare there will no longer be any excuses.

Total truth – I just keep letting them slip past.

I am constantly telling my friends: “I need to take photos of this for my something new”, so the posts are right there at the front of my thinking… it’s just that the execution of them is, well, it’s poo. Sorry.

So, here I am with 4 weeks (actually, it’ll only be 3 because week 14 had a big fat zero new in it 😦 )

Week 12 – That time I watched an improv show

Week 13 – That time I made it to the Southern Hemisphere to share my brother-in-law’s birthday with him

Happy Birthday!!

Week 14 – FAIL!

Week 15 – That time at Morimoto brunch

And there you have it folks. Four Three new weeks in life.
I’m not going to promise that I’ll be better… but I do promise that you’ll get another update from me at some point in the future. Whether it’s in one week, or five weeks…. who knows?!
