Weekly Gratitude 2020 8/52

2020 gratitude

Hi everyone! I’m backdating this post as it has been a busy week and weekend! I was so exhausted on Sunday evening I decided to not attend a free gig and preferred instead to lay on the couch and finish my book. It was a good decision but I kinda can’t help but wonder how the gig would’ve been. Anyway, it’s been a big week and I have a lot to be grateful for from 16th February to 22nd February 2020:

Brunch catch up with my friend NC after almost a year!

Brief catch up with my friend ZW as I picked her up from the airport on Sunday night

Attending my first ever Tool concert on Monday night and having an amazing experience!

A decent workshop for 3 days where I learnt a fair bit but also felt validated I’ve been doing the right thing

Mid-week drinks catch up

Attending my first ever B-list book club where Bri Lee chatted with Heather Rose. I enjoyed their chat, loved chatting with them and met some other lovely readers. I can’t wait for next month’s book!

My shoulder improving and the physio clearing me for some upper body exercises and deadlifts. No shoulder presses or arm exercises yet though but it’s good progress and I’m stoked!

Drinks with work colleagues on Friday night as a farewell for one of them

Watching the first game of the women’s T20 Cricket World Cup on Friday night. We didn’t win unfortunately but it was a great game and amazing to see the turnout

Catching up with my friends CN and SM during and after the game

Going all the way to Westmead to pick up some south Indian filter coffee that my mum had sent with a family friend and getting fed by them

Having my friend AU come over on Saturday evening from Melbourne and showing her around the area while enjoying dinner, drinks and long conversations

It’s been an exhausting week with not much sleep or exercise. I’m hoping to catch up on both in the coming week while still enjoying doing things.

How was your week?

Do share!

    Sanch, you get a LOT accomplished in a week! So much fun reading about your friends and get-togethers. I am glad to read that your PT cleared you for upper body exercises. Deadlifts are one of my favorites. You are making progress!

    That’s a nice people week you have had, Sanch. I’m so happy for you that you are blessed with a great set of friends. It is always nice to feel validated about what we are doing. It is vital, in fact. I’m glad that there is a good audience for women’s cricket now. These girls deserve all that and more.

    Wishing you another fabulous week ahead. Much love!

    That was a big week! All the way to Westmead..yes it gets like that doesn’t it? When I was in Sydney yesterday and drove to the M1 it took me as much time to do that as it would have to get back to where we used to live in Glenwood. The M1 was brilliant compared to traffic from 4 pm on major roads.

    You are getting about loads so a time out at home is bound to refresh!

    Thank you for linking up for Life This Week. Next week’s optional prompt is Taking Stock. Using words of your own or ones from other bloggers as prompts is cool. Hope to see you there: 2 March 2020. Denyse.
