Weekly Gratitude 2019 25/52

2019 weekly gratitude

Happy Sunday everyone! This is very late coming to you but I only got home at around 1 p.m. this afternoon from a whirlwind but awesome trip to Melbourne. Without further ado, here are some things I’m grateful for from 16th June to 22nd June 2019:

Running 12 kms in the Bay to Bay run in 1 hour and 18 minutes on Sunday. Woohoo!

Flying out to Melbourne on Thursday evening

Heading straight to a cool pub – Hopscotch – on getting to Melbourne and meeting my friend VP. I was recommended to try out a craft beer – Jaffa Milkshake which was pretty good!

Seeing my friend VP who moved to Darwin last year and holidaying in Melbourne with her

Exploring Melbourne’s CBD on Friday on my own as my friend was at work – I love little alleyways, walking through streets, beautiful art and architecture – all of it!

Milk the Cow Fromagerie – oh my goodness! What a fantastic experience on Friday night! This was recommended by a friend and both, VP and I loved it so, so much! I could totally eat all the cheese!!!

Visiting the State Library of Victoria on Saturday. What a wonderful place!

Exploring Fitzroy on Saturday with VP {and some other parts of Melbourne too} – such a quirky little place. Reminds me of Newtown which I love

Brunch on Saturday morning at Operator 25 – awesome coffee and fantastic French toast

Buying books, reading books, exploring bookstores all in Melbourne

It has been a good week. I think I was counting down to Thursday afternoon since about Sunday! It was really good to have a weekend getaway. It reminds me I should try and do this more often. I have another one just an hour north this coming weekend and then Brisbane in July {recommendations welcome, by the way!}

How was your week?

Do share!

    How awesome is the library…and Fitzroy…and Milk The Cow…and the street art? We’re off down there for a winter weekend on Friday – my daughter and I for our annual girls weekend away. I can’t wait. (Off to look up Operator 25 and Hopscotch…)

    Melbourne is ideal for a weekend getaway. I went a couple of times for blogging things back in 2012 & 2013 and loved exploring the streets in between times. The cafes are brilliant.

    Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek and next week’s optional prompt is Worst Job. Hope to see you link up again. Denyse.
