I've booked, I've entered and I've resigned

I’ve booked my flights to Sydney for the weekend 11th – 13th August. I have been toying with the idea of going to Sydney for the bloggers dinner and so had been looking on the net at prices (Virgin Blue $79 one way which I didn't think was too bad). Anyway, was looking at times of flights last night and they had tickets for $59 – how could I not go at that price ??????

I’ve entered into the City 2 Surf (although now am wondering what I have let myself in for) After lots of discussion with Al, we agreed that it would be heaps cheaper for me to go to Sydney by myself (I was originally going to Sydney so that I could go to the bloggers dinner) and then mentioned to Al that quite a few of you were doing the C2S and he asked me why I didn’t do it. I thought that the fact that I haven’t done any exercise for absolutely ages was probably a really good reason why I wasn’t doing it but then he said that he would train me if I wanted to do it !!!! So, before I could change my mind I went on-line and entered. I have to say now I am starting to have second thoughts but I guess I could always just go down for the dinner, catch up with my friends and then watch everyone else running / walking and support them !!!!!! Seriously though, I will certainly give it a go – see what sort of training regime Al comes up with and just take it from there. If the worst comes to the worst, I have wasted a couple of hours of working at Coles (by way of the entrance fee).

I’ve resigned from my day job. Unfortunately, they are making me work my full 4 weeks notice. I would have liked to have had a couple of days off between jobs but alas, that is not to be and I start my new job on Wednesday 19th July !!! This is a little unfortunate as it means that I won’t even get to celebrate my birthday while on holiday. But, I am really looking forward to my new job – something new to learn, the hours are good and I think that the tax breaks that I might be able to get will certainly help with the pennies at the end of each month.

On that note – have a great day everyone and take care !

Looking forward to catching up with you at the bloggers dinner the night B4 the C2S. Good luck with that. I did it last year and it's really not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Just do it at your own pace and don't try to keep up with anyone. That's the key to it. Make sure you exchange phone numbers though so you can all meet up at the finish line together for a bite to eat! Good luck also with you new job. It would have been nice though as you said to have a bit of a break between. XX

I am also tossing up the idea of attending the Sydney Bloggers dinner it sounds like it is going to be a great night, and everyone is going to have a great time at the C2S from what I have heard.

Hope you are having a great week!
