Currently I am on a 6 day break up north to spend with my girl. I miss her so much and life just gets in the way of us spending time together when we are about 1500km apart from each other. Life is tough and this is one of my challenges every day..Being away from her. But as the story goes.. you have to let them go and let them spread their wings just like I did when I was 19. I decided to move to Australia. I told my Mum and no one believed me. 6 weeks later I left them all bawling their eyes out at the airport (including myself) LOL
My son Corey was very disappointed that he couldn't join me but this had to purely be a break for both of us just to do girly things together with no limits.
A week before I flew up she told me she has written up an itinerary for our holiday. She has planned every day what we are doing but I was not to know what was on it until I stepped off the plane. She then put on Facebook 2 days before I flew up here 6 clues on our itinerary.. 6 random pictures that were meant to relate to what we had on that day..It was fun.. I guessed one out of 6 clues.
Day 1 we went to her Dads place who was having a big get together Pig on the spit for dinner.. It was divine with all the roasted veges too.
we went shopping and then went to Body Balance together. This was my first time and I loved it. Was very soothing for my back.
Day 2 she took me to her boot camp on the beach.. An hour of intense exercise and commando crawls through the sand. After that we went to Squeeze Me health kiosk here in Townsville and had a mighty healthy breakfast with all the ingredients I have never heard of. It was divine.
We caught up with a few movies too at home which I just loved.. I never ever get to watch movies.. She is the movie buff.
Day 3 she pulled me out of bed at 5.30 and we climbed Castle Hill in Townsville. Was beautiful when we got to the top. She loves her exercise now which is great.. as I have loved it most of my adult life. So nice to now do it together. That night Danielle had bought tickets for us to go to a live theatre comedy show. I have never been to one so once again it was great to do something that my girl enjoys.
Day 4 we went over to Magnetic Island. This was awesome.. we caught the ferry from Townsville and it was only 20 min on the ferry. When we got off we hired two scooters for the day. Zoey and Maurice were their names. lol
We rode around the island all day and checked out all the bays. Just gorgeous. We had fun along the way taking lots of snap shot, did a 6km hill climb up to check out the forts, went to another bay for lunch, went up many hills nearly pushing our scooters.. lol was full of fun all day.
We come home and slept like babies.
Day 5 is today and she had us booked in for a Hot Stones full body massage. This was unreal and so nice to have after our hiking and boot camps. I must say I felt a bit guilty for spending that sort of money on myself but it was worth it. We only live once don't we.
Did a bit of shopping today and then home for the rest of the day. I am teaching Danielle how to sew. We are making a dress. Talk about funny. OMG. I need my Mum I think. My Mum Sue is the sewer!! She is brilliant. I have just reminded myself that I hate sewing clothes but love sewing projects like quilts and all things you don't have to wear and make to fit.
But she has proven to herself and I that she has got the knack. I bought a beautiful sewing machine for her 21st last year. I think every girl needs a sewing machine. The only thing she has sewn in 15 months is her partners hole in his socks. He cant seem to get his toes in his socks anymore LOL
So.. off back home to reality tomorrow. Working the whole weekend but that's ok. I miss my boys and they miss me so it will be nice to get home. But I will be very sad when I am sitting in my seat on the plane wondering when I will see her again.
Thanks for stopping in and checking up on what I am up to. Back into Project Life when I get home. I cant wait.
Til then ..
