It’s been a while…

It’s been a while since my last update, and I know I said I’d try and update more often. But sometimes life gets in the way. Obviously life has been so good that I haven’t actually had much time to post an update. I guess that means that I should actually have an update to provide… but I don’t really… I mean work is work, it’s usually busy and then sometimes not as busy, my work bestie (and also non-work bestie) has left me for Sephora and as much as I miss her, I’m glad she got the role there. She is in her element! And besides, as if you’d say no to Sephora!

Home life has been wonderful. Moving in with G has probably been one of the best milestones since we met. I mean we still see each other like we would be if we weren’t living together but it’s just really nice to have someone to come home to, or have someone come home to you. I guess it’s something I never had the chance of experiencing before and I’m really happy that it’s with G that I get to have that experience.

My mum came over for a long weekend and finally got to meet G. They hit it off pretty well and even had a game of golf together. I also took mum out for a late Mother’s Day high tea and it was nice to spend time with her. I do miss her and I’m really excited to see her in November when I return for a visit. I’ll be bringing G along with me too; he’s going to be meeting the Melbourne mob and I’m a little worried for him! Kidding!

One thing I’m really excited about… my Pop Vinyls FINALLY being on display!

How awesome does it look! There are some Pops, sitting behind others because I was only allowed to have 1 display unit for these but it looks pretty cool!

Anyways, that’s all. It’s a useless update but whatever! Who reads this anyway?

Another year, another update…

Over 12 months ago, I was ready to give online dating the flick. I even wrote a semi-rant-blog post about it. I had been on a number of first dates with guys who seemed really mature, genuine, fun and had great personalities. But it didn’t seem to go past that initial meet. While I thought we had great connection, it turned out that they didn’t feel the same. What sucked, was that rather than saying “hey it’s been nice but I don’t think you’re the girl for me”, they would just disappear off the face of the dating planet. It’s a shitty feeling when that happens, but their loss was someone else’s gain. If it weren’t for all those failed dates, I wouldn’t have met my love, so I guess you could say it was my gain too!

Just before Easter of 2017, I had added a guy to a “favourites” list on the dating application I was using at the time, with the intention of sending him a message. I sat on it for a little while because as above, I was starting to get frustrated and was about to just give up. But then he messaged me. We chatted about TV shows and movies we liked, activities we took part in, music we listened to, joked around and get a little comfortable I guess you could say. So we decided to meet for coffee. I had prepared myself for the worst; the potential for him to just ignore me after we met just like the rest of them. But to my surprise, it was quite the opposite. We went out again the same week, and again not long after; we were texting almost every day since then and before we knew it, we were “official”… yes I know that sounds corny but whatever! I didn’t expect him to stick around long enough to let me fall in love with him. But he did, and he’s still here and I couldn’t be happier.

We moved into a place together recently too, a townhouse not far from my work and making his work commute a little shorter as well. While we don’t spend that much time together on weekdays/weeknights because of our different work schedules, we still get to hang out on the weekends and text each other daily; just like we did when we first started dating.

He has been the best and most positive thing to come along in a long time. With his encouragement and support, I started to enjoy the outdoors again, getting creative and just learning to really love and appreciate the things I used to in the past. He also encouraged me to look at where I wanted to be in life, on a personal level as well as on a career level. With my luck, a friend I had worked with previously, came to me with an opportunity to join her where she currently works. With his encouragement as well as the support of my family and friends, I took the opportunity and I was successful in getting that role.

The past 12 months have been pretty amazing, I’ve met the love of my life, someone who I know I want to annoy for the rest of my days, I’ve moved to a new company, new role and made lots of new friends. But the one thing I haven’t done, is found my motivation to write like I used to.

This could be the start, but this isn’t going to be a long post, it’s more of a quick update on where I’m at in life and also a shout out to my love; you’re one of a kind and I’m happy that we met. I love you! 😘

With that, I’m out… see you in a year… or maybe sooner!

Melbourne…

Aah Melbourne, what a beautiful city. I’ve missed being in Melbourne, more than I could explain. For the past 5 weeks I’ve been spending time with my mum and best friends who I have missed like you wouldn’t believe, I’ve been catching up with friends who I haven’t seen in years, some before I left for Sydney the first time, and some even before that.

I always feel at home when I come back to Melbourne, it’s as if nothing has changed. Apart from the cosmetics, everything else is the same. The vibe, the atmosphere, the people and that’s why I’ll come keeping back. Also the food and coffee, Melbourne has some great eating spots, coffee pots and drinking holes.

It’s been almost a year since I spent a good week or two in Melbourne. So spending 5 weeks has been nothing short of amazing. It’s still not enough to catch up with everyone; some people getting lucky to see me more than once but on my next visit, hopefully I’ll be able to catch up with more friends.

So to everyone who I got to see while I was there, thank you for taking time out to come eat with me and put on an extra 5kgs on top of whatever Christmas and New Years weight we put on. Thank you for still being you, and allowing me to be the same ole me.

To those who I didn’t get to see, I’m sorry and please forgive me. Clearly 5 weeks is not enough (I did work 3 out of those 5, so it’s been a little hard to fit everyone in,) but there’s always next time. Maybe March? I’ll let you know.

In the interim, I have left you but I still love you. Keep in touch folks, and if you’re in Sydney hit me up, via whatever social media app we’re connected through if you haven’t got my digits.
