On Sunday we woke up a bit later and had a really slow morning before making a move to Lane Cove National Park as I’ve seen they have a tiny waterfall there. As we walked along the river there we passed by a place where you can rent paddle boats (or whatever they’re called) and I screamed out of excitement and we just had. To. Do. It.
So peaceful to just float around the river, even if our legs got quite sore.. The rental time was for an hour but think we were back within 30 and didn’t even go chasing the tiny waterfall afterwards.. Haha.
Tomorrow is the first day off work week, today I have just been cleaning and doing laundry, went down to the pool in the building for a few laps to work on my conditioning as I’ve been a lazy muffin since… Can’t remember so quite a while.
With all that is currently happening in Sydney and the covid outbreak, the stress really affected the feels around this festive holiday. As it didn’t effect me personally, I could still go along with my plans. But I knew alot of people couldn’t. And that alot of people was alone. Couldn’t just covid waiting a bit longer and atleast give us Christmas?
Me, my husband and two friends went away to the mountains and up there it was like none of it existed. The surrounding was incredible, the sound of silence, the fresh air. It was what we all needed.
We cooked, ate and drank. Alot of all of it. Enjoyed the view. I mean the place was full of animals and insects, I saw the most beautiful butterflies but also the biggest moths in my whole life. Also met some friends, they were pretty shy thought so we just watched them while they ate the grass.
Now we’re back in the city. Tomorrow I’m back at work. I’m sort of excited for the festive season to be over, the idea of starting fresh. Doing things differently. The goals for next year. Work harder, better, learn more. Eat better. Cut the sugar. And the alcohol. Exercise more. As every year. Im always excited about the fresh start after new years.
