    @applehelper They all sound like great things to be looking forward to! I love meal planning, it just takes so much stress out of the evenings, and what book are you reading?

    Thanks for the tag @Lhiver .............how's the alone time been so far??

    Love that list @applehelper ...........I'm a big fan of meal prep and just don't get enough good night's sleep. I hope you got yours!

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

    - meeting up with someone I've been chatting to for three weeks this weekend...........a bit full of fear about it too if I'm completely honest

    - getting out for a much needed game of golf on Friday

    - three day weekends for the next 6 weeks while I take days off because of all the overtime I've done............reward for effort

    Yeah, it's been really nice @Lhiver :D and I make hip hop music, was playing gigs really regularly before COVID hit and just getting the creative juices flowing again recently which has been a long time coming and very relieving...

    This week I'm looking forward to...

    - Going to Newcastle for the weekend to celebrate one of my closest friends 30th birthday

    - My grandfathers funeral and wake tomorrow, it will be nice to celebrate his very long and active life and to connect with family

    - Watching the Golden State Warriors make it to the NBA finals

    good morning everyone! it's time again to come together and share three things we're looking forward to! It's always nice to have something fun on the horizon, it can help keep our spirits up and remind us of the good things we're working towards!

    1. Getting back into the gym after some time off

    2. putting some new posters up in my flat

    3. my group call with my family overseas

    I've felt really drained and stretched quite thin over the past couple of days so thought I would take the opportunity to focus on some things to look forward to...

    Firstly, having a week off at the end of June and heading up to Byron Bay...after delivering training over the next two weeks it will be well needed by then!

    Enjoying some time to myself tomorrow night and perhaps going to a meeting.

    Getting a good night sleep!

    hi everyone! This week I'm looking forward to

    1. finishing the current book I'm reading! I got into a slump so it'll be good to get back into reading

    2. having some slightly warmer weather, it's totally freezing her in Melbourne!

    3. having some down time! It's been a busy few months and I feel like things will hopefully be slowing down a little bit in the near future.


    how about everyone else? what are you looking forward to! It can be long term or short term

    Hi to everyone :)
    I’m looking forward to my baby boy being born (due November). I’m struggling a bit at the moment to taper off suboxone but I’m trying to look forward and keep my eyes on the goal.
    I’m looking forward to work this weekend which sounds odd but it’s a good way to keep busy and keep my mind off things.
    I’m looking forward to meet some people here and chat and get to know others.
    Thanks for listening
