At the moment, most days, I don't enjoy my job.  And today was no exception. But tonight, as part of my "work", I got to meet and have a photo taken with a performer I've loved since my childhood.  It's then I think "yeah, this job has its upsides".

King Kong at the Regent Theatre. I wouldn't necessarily call it a musical (and the book is pants), but most of the music is brilliant and visually?  Oh. My. Goodness.  AMAZING.

Downside of a less-than-24-hour trip to Radders: working until after midnight, then having to be up at 6am for a flight home, then going straight to work and working until 7.30pm. I'm going to bed.

Upside of a less-than-24-hour trip to Radders: catching up with an old friend I haven't seen in at least a year.

Monday, 27 May 2013

Supposed to be packing for a work trip to Radders tomorrow. So far all I've done is downloaded the first ten eps of the new season of Arrested Development to my iPad for watching on the plane...

I do wonder sometimes if I'm actually cut out for this "being a grown-up" malarkey.  Mostly when it comes to the "managing your finances" part.  I've no more financial nouse than a five year old.

Lovely dinner at Albert St Food & Wine with Kitty Kat and Poiter... perhaps a little too much wine, but what the hey.  YOLO.  ;)

Friday, 24 May 2013

Two lovely mates in town for the weekend = Seamstress for post-work cocktails and chat.

My career is a Clash song... and it's pretty obvious which one.

Wednesday, 22 May 2013

Finally caught up on the SNL finale... a little sad that Seth Meyers won't be doing  Weekend Update anymore, but it was awesome that Amy Poehler returned for his final one and I can't wait to see him take on Late Night next year!

Inspired to re-read some of my favourite childhood books after finding out that they've turned Judy Blume's book "Tiger Eyes" into a movie!

Monday, 20 May 2013

Took the struggle train into struggle town and spent eight hours struggling through a massive workload.  Enthusiasm is at an all-time low.

Eurovision. After the Tony's and the Golden Globes, it's my favourite night of the year.

Saturday, 18 May 2013

Sunshine makes me happy.  A sunshiny Sydney makes me happy, but not so happy that I'd ever want to live here again!

Friday, 17 May 2013

First day back at work. Ugh. Can I go on hols again please?

Thursday, 16 May 2013

OMG, OMG you guys!  What a fun new show to see on my return home.  Snaps to the Legally Blonde gang... loved it.

Wednesday, 15 May 2013

FINALLY some decent sunshine. A trip to the lighthouse, a swim in the ocean, fish and chip lunch on the beach and then dinner at an amazing Thai restaurant with awesome new friends. Win.

Sunny afternoon in Byron... "let's go for a beach walk" is the plan. Ten minutes down the beach and we're hit by a monster rainstorm. Soaked through, we paddle back to the Beach Hotel for a drying out bevvy. 

Monday, 13 May 2013

Afternoon at the spa... 1hr hot tub/sauna + 1.5hr hot stone massage = HEAVEN.

Sunday, 12 May 2013

A morning of craft with the hilarious Ruby, a bit of a sunbathe by the pool and the most delicious lunch from the 100 Mile Table crew... perfect Sunday.

Saturday, 11 May 2013

Another glorious Byron vacay day, topped off by a glorious Hawks win.

Friday, 10 May 2013

Four women. Two nights. Twelve bottles of wine and half a bottle of gin demolished.

Thursday, 9 May 2013

Hello Byron Bay. Please relax me. Immediately.

Wednesday, 8 May 2013

Not leaving work until nearly 9pm was not the ideal way to start my vacation... but I'm outta there at last and have switched off all work emails from my iPhone and iPad.  Tomorrow morning, Byron Bay, I am all yours!

Tuesday, 7 May 2013

Last day of work tomorrow before a week's holiday!  Can. Not. Wait.

Monday, 6 May 2013

Is 9.30pm too early to go to bed?

Probably, but I'm doing it anyway.

Sunday, 5 May 2013

Four more sleeps...
Four more sleeps...
Four more sleeps...

(I'm a little bit excited for my Byron Bay getaway)

If "groped by Steven Tyler" had ever been on my bucket list, then I can cross it off.  Eeeeewwww, looks like a lady.  

Friday, 3 May 2013

Verdi's 'A Masked Ball'.  A thoroughly modern (some might say post-modern) interpretation, which I really enjoyed and found equal parts hilarious, ridiculous, thought-provoking, moving and just plain BONKERS.  Somehow I don't think my dad would've appreciated it much though...

Eyelash tints are utterly pointless when you're a brunette.  A very dark-lashed brunette.  Thank god it was a freebie.

Wednesday, 1 May 2013

In the last 24 hours I have been reminded over and over how lucky I am to have some amazing friends. Really lucky. Blessed.
