Things that make a sucky week better

This past week has kicked my arse. I had five straight days of install (not to mention another three next week, for an eight day straight run...), which meant a crapload of decision making. And I'm not really good with decision making. Especially when it involves how things are going to look in the showcase for the next 2-5 years... Plus, I've had a cold. Between the stress of install, running up and down the stairs in the gallery and not being able to take a sick day, I lost 1.5kg in three days.

But yesterday afternoon and evening went some way to redeeming the week.

Let's start with taking Friday afternoon off. Completely genius plan. Gotta love Flex time! Anyway, R and I left work at 1.30, and headed to Cornucopia, a bakery that only ever seems to be open during work hours. After having lunch there, we went to the liquor store and spent exorbitant amounts of money on posh Swedish cider ($8 for a 500mL bottle! Or $75 for a case of 18 bottles...), which we then proceeded to drink sat in the sunshine in R's garden.

I'd only ever had the pear Rekorderlig (and that was on Tuesday night!), so I bought the pear one, the apple one, and this:

Sorry about the craptacular photos - all I had with me was my phone, and the camera is shitful. Anyway, the wild berry cider was delicious. And also pink:

So after cider and ranting, and walking to the supermarket for Grainwaves Sour Cream and Onion chips and a bag of giant Cadbury chocolate buttons, we were feeling somewhat better about life.

From there, we moved on to the following:
  • Pizza from Crust
  • Therapy in the form of Richard Armitage as John Thornton in North & South (skipping episode 3 because who really cares about Bessy and the mother dying, along with that whole brother who's on the run thing??)
  • More chocolate
  • More Grainwaves
  • Skyping our BFF and third member of the Trio of Insanity, Sara. Hurrah!! Also, we miss you!!
Other things that make a sucky week better? Flowers from a friend (thanks Nessa!):

A housemate who goes out on her lunchbreak to buy you cold and flu tablets because you don't have time to do it yourself:
Sleeping for 11 hours.

Finding out that the Australian Women's Hockey team are playing Argentina a five minute walk from your house tonight, and still being able to get tickets. Which are only $10. Score!

Here's hoping next week is an improvement on this week!!

  1. Awwwww, hope you had a great week!! Hope you recovered from the cold too!! :)

  2. Miss you too sugarplum! Chocolate buttons and cider are my favourites and I'm glad you have Ness, Deb and R to cheer you up :) Here's to next week being much better....

  3. Late comment but have you ever had Rekorderlig Winter Cider? It's AMAZEBALLS. And it's perfect for mulling.

    1. I think I've had like half a bottle of it at a friend's place once. And it was in the middle of summer, so having it made absolutely no sense! I'll have to give it a go this winter and see what I think. I'm also equal parts perplexed and intrigued by their new Mango and Raspberry one, but I'm not sure I want to pay $8 to try it!!


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
