What I’ve leant this week

Well, firstly I’ve learnt that the weeks seem to be flying by! It feels like only yesterday I wrote last weeks post. Maybe I’m just getting old but the time is going so much faster than it used to. Every year I feel time is speeding up. I can’t believe we are in mid April!

I also leant I love zucchini flowers! Small lesson I know, but still worth a mention. This all came about when we had a long lunch with some media reps at a beautiful restaurant. One that has a menu that most people can’t understand. A note to mention, I love my food! But I like good, simple food most the time. I grew up in the country, so meat and 3 veg was on the menu most nights. as I’ve gotten older I’ve really started to open my mind and taste buds and started trying new foods. I’m still learning to do this, so when we go to these kind of restaurants, I feel a little bit over whelmed. I thought the zucchini flower would be something new and I’m so glad I got it. It was amazing! It was served with ricotta and it was just mouth watering. A new food to add to my list!

I also leant that I might be getting a little too old to enjoy a little wine between friends on a ‘school night’. Having a hazy head at work really isn’t as easy as it used to be!

Cheers,

What I’ve learnt this week (a day late!)

Oh dear, I’m a day late with this! Sorry, but my weekend plans changed at the last minute. Better late than never I guess.

As I posted late last week, it was a bit of a blah week. For whatever reason, I just couldn’t be bothered doing anything. Getting up and going to work was tough, never mind writing a blog post. So to help me get out of this rut I went away on the weekend, spending time with a beautiful friend who I’ve known for 24 years but we only see each other every few months. Having a drink and a dance at the pub by the ocean has really reinvigorated me. I’m feeling like myself again. So I guess last week I learnt that taking time out and sharing a little wine between friends is so important. You can’t put a price on quality time spent with the people you love. Although I am meant to be saving, I still went out and had a good time. I learnt that sometimes you need to just relax and not stress about situations you can’t control. It sounds simple doesn’t it… ‘just relax’. For me it’s a lot easier said than done. But the way I was feeling the past week was enough to make me just throw caution to the wind and forget about life’s problems for a couple of days. I also learnt that no matter the distance between you and a friend, no matter the lack of communication you may have, when you do catch up it’s like nothing has changed. Having a friendship that just falls back into place like that is so rewarding and satisfying.

I hope to post a bit more frequently this week and hopefully have a week full of great lessons.

Cheers,

Jane
