Observant little ...

I don't understand the answer, but I may have some ideas on the question...

update of my life

I haven't gone anywhere, but I'm still very busy at work (I actually had to work last Saturday to catch up! That's almost unheard of for a government employee) and haven't been blogging or reading blogs.

In addition to work:-

- I'm seeing a chiropractor twice a week to try and fix my spine (degenerative changes at my age is not a good thing);

- I've been talking to a work-sponsored counsellor to see if a professional's opinion can help to fix some of the problems I've been having with my work situation (ie trying to deal with a difficult colleague);

- I've started another volunteer role - it's with a newly formed group, so it's pretty time intensive at the moment;

- a couple of my mates are leaving these shores for foreign ones - some are going home, some are going overseas to live, all of which I won't see for at least another 2 years unless I start travelling again myself. This has meant that I've had a heap of going away parties to attend;

- it's birthday season - most of my friends are Capricorns or Aquarians, so this is the time of year when I'm constantly juggling birthday parties;

- I've formed two new groups of friends - one out of my volunteer work, and one (well, sort of two, but they overlap) from Woodford - who I've been trying to stay in touch with along with my usual social activities and all of the abovementioned parties;

- I'm still doing salsa lessons and trying to get to my contemporary dance class at least once every couple of weeks;

- my new year's resolution was to spend more time and money on myself, so I'm getting a full body massage about once a week/fortnight.

I've also been applying for other jobs and attending interviews, which all takes up a lot of my extracurricular time. Hence why my life is too full for blogging right now. ;o)

Most of my friends are feeling a bit neglected at the moment as well. My Mum has asked "when are you coming up to see us" at least the last two times she's called. I haven't gone on a date since before Christmas, but since Woodford (where I got enough male attention to last a girl a lifetime), I have been picked up at the pub a couple of times by guys I would date (and got their phone numbers), and have been spending time at the various parties etc with guys I have dated in the past, so haven't really missed the lack of actual dating.

The social stuff starts to calm down again this weekend, so hopefully I'll start blogging again next week or in early Feb.

The WFF Weight Loss Program

1. Take one heat wave (40 degree celcius with 80% humidity).

2. Spend a week at the Woodford Folk Festival with very little relief from the heat or sun.

3. Camp on top of a hill (2 minutes walk downhill to the festival, 10 minutes walk uphill from the festival). Visit your camp at least 3 times a day.

4. Work an average of 6 hours a day lifting kegs and slabs.

5. Spend the rest of the day either sweating in your tent & trying to sleep, or grooving to the excellent music (and sweating even more).

You will find that you eat hardly anything since you're continuously filling up on water. You are doing more exercise that your poor little office-job-accustomed body is used to. You will find muscles that you didn't even know existed and daily reiki and massages do nothing to relieve.

And if you're anything like me, you'll lose 5kg in a week and collapse from heat exhaustion before the festival ends. :o(

But it was still all worth it. :o)

And I'm still planning to do it all again next year! ;o)
