    Congratulations on the baby boy @Xena9492! Also, you're doing so well, sometimes it's a marathon when you're reducing and the most important thing is that you're safe :)

    This week I'm looking forward to...

    - Going up to Byron Bay on Tuesday for a week off work and to visit my mum

    - My sons 9th Birthday on Sunday

    - Finishing another round of Peer Worker Training delivery tomorrow and trying to unwind a bit over the weekend

    hello hello everyone!

    This week I'm looking forward to

    1. getting a new couch or armchair. I've been rearranging my apartment and I've realised my living room is a bit cold looking so a new armchair will hopefully help jolly it up a bit! Just want to make sure it's the right fit for the space, instead of just jumping on the first one I see

    2. Seeing my godson, he's in high school now and has had covid and laryngitis so it will be nice to see him soon!

    3. A few nice sunny days in a row. Melbourne has been so dreary , it's nice to get the sun every one in a while!

    how about everyone else!

    Thanks for the tag @Lhiver, that's nice to hear that you get to see your godson and sorry to hear he's been unwell. I know right, it's sooo freezing at the moment!

    This week I'm looking forward to...

    - Going up to Byron Bay for 6 days tomorrow to see my mums new place, get out of the cold for a bit and have some well needed time off work

    - Utilising the break to kick start some new healthy habits after my self care slipping over the past couple of months

    - Getting a good night sleep tonight

    I hope you find the armchair @Lhiver and thanks for the reminder to look forwards

    Three things I’m looking forward to are………….

    - Next week off work with time to myself. It’ll be time to reflect and rejuvenate. Time to assess and make a plan for the remainder of the year as far as goals go. I need some direction because it’s been lacking of late

    - Time on the golf course next week and like you @lhiver I’m hoping there’s a bit of sun around to enjoy as well\


    - Getting my lawnmower fixed so I can do my lawns that are in much need of attention

    I'm looking forward to spending the day with my two young daughters, crafting and working in the shed. We will then cook my wife a roast of her choice, then perhaps an episode of Outlander.

    Enjoy the time off @Lhiver ………….I hope it’s a great break

    I love the simplicity and connection with family for you @Blackdoggriffon1976 . Days like that are the greatest and better than any day in addiction. I missed out on so much I want to make the most of every opportunity now. How did the roast go?

    Three things I’m looking forward to are…………

    - A Pink Floyd tribute concert this weekend

    - The footy finals………..I know they’re a while away but I love this town during finals time and it’s been a couple of years since it’s happened

    - Dinner with a friend I haven’t seen for aaaaages on tomorrow night. We used to work together and she’s my BMF……….Barista Mate Forever – LOL
