    Gotta love the Hot Springs @ScorpionPW !!!! Enjoy!!!

    I'm going to see The Hilltop Hoods one night and The Hoodoo Gurus supported by The Dandy Warhols another night..........it's quite the mix of bands and decades.

    I hope the training goes well............face to face is sooooo much better. Have fun!!!

    Hello everyone! It's time again to share 3 things we're looking forward too! It's always nice to have something fun on the horizon, even if it's something small :)

    1. getting some artwork hung up on the walls in my flat! It's all feeling very bare so I'm hoping that makes it feel a bit more like home :)

    2. having coffee with a friend tomorrow morning, I have been sick for a week so it will be nice to see someone :)

    3. reading a new book I got ! I love biographies so I'm sticking with that theme :)

    How about everyone else? @Coops1014 @LizzyForSobriety @Lakers @ScorpionPW @PnorkelPW @Sobertime @Innocent

    3 things I'm looking forward to...

    - Seeing my partner tomorrow

    - My friend starting her new role and sharing an office space from tomorrow

    - Catching up with a close friend that I haven't seen in a while on the weekend

    It's the things like artwork on the walls that make a house a home @Lhiver

    Working with friends is pretty cool @ScorpionPW, I hope she settles in well


    Three things I'm looking forward to are.............

    - Going hiking and away for the night tomorrow with my friend who's been overseas for a few years

    - My renovations starting in 4 weeks...........it'll be great to get it done after being two years in the making

    - Daylight savings is only 4 weeks away and the weather is getting better

    @ScorpionPW That's super exciting about sharing the office with your friend! It's Joan Lindsey's biography about the first year of her life with Norman Lindsey! It's a nice look into the between way Australian art scene.

    @PnorkelPW where are you going hiking? It must be nice knowing you're going to get the renos done!

    Nice one @PnorkelPW! Where are you going hiking?

    Sounds like you've got lot's of things to look forward to as well @Judas...

    I love reading all of this, it's just such a great picture of what's possible once we're in recovery. I can think of so many forfilling, enriching and life changing experiences that I have had that have been beyond my wildest dreams...as well as really simple day to day ways of life that have changed which bring me genuine peace and joy. It's not always easy, and life can be really challenging at times but it just reminds me that my worst day in recovery is still better than my best day using.

    Thanks for sharing everybody :)

    @Lhiver @ScorpionPW we went up to Redwood Forest and stayed at Healesville for the night. Was just great to get out of the city into some fresh air...........especially midweek it felt even better not to be working.

    @Judas that's a great list. I like that there's some short term stuff and the trip in December too. I think it's really important to always have something on the horizon to look forward to

    That sounds so nice @PnorkelPW...you've inspired me. It's been way too long since I got into nature and I think I'm going to have to sometime very soon :D
