I’ve been working all day, 7am to 8.30pm to be exact, so had no time to blog today. It feels weird, like the daily routine I have had for so long was disturbed and it totally threw me off track. All I could think about at work was that I haven’t blogged today, something I started doing back in 2014. It is now certainly a big part of my life.
So, here are some little thoughts that went through my head in the space of time I was unable to blog.
1. I started to miss northern hemisphere winters.
I woke up at 7am and it was already 28 Celsius. I looked in horror at my pillow, covered in sweat. It isn’t often in my life I have experienced that, usually in northern England I wake up wishing I wore socks. The grass always seems greener on the other side, I bet if I got off a plane in England tomorrow I would be wishing I was walking along a beach again.
By the time midday got here is was 38 Celcius. That being said…
2. The heat is great for maintaining a decent weight.
Christmas is round the corner, and what other time of the year consists of so many calories? Worst of all, this is the summer season! This is the time for the beach. Thankfully the heat makes me drink plenty of water and eat less, so it isn’t all bad.
3. I can see the Sydney Tower Eye from my suburb.
I haven’t seen this view before. Pretty cool!
I went to our works Christmas party yesterday, it was great, I had lots of (free) beer. In the next bar, the bouncer asked to see my ID. I accidentally gave him my Opal card (This is equivalent to the Oyster Card in London, the card used for getting around on public transport in the city). This was enough to refuse me entry.
Fair enough I guess.
5. This cruise has a cool walkway.
It goes around the front of the vessel, I thought it was a thick line painted on the Bow at first.
So yeah, some of the thoughts I had recently, I hope you welcome them with open arms.
