Eat Pray Love...

Well its been so hot here the last few days... this will be our 5th day over 40 (104) degrees. I haven't exercised as we don't have ducted air con.. Its been hard enough to stay hydrated! So feeling deflated that I haven't exercised since Thursday!

We went to our friends house for dinner on Saturday night, while we were there a bush fire was burning out of control less then a mile from their house scary!! So today is a really bad day for a bush fire with northerly winds and temp over 40... I have to work today in the community in and out of the car!! I am packing the esky!

Over the weekend I started a Novel the first new one in a while.. I haven't been able to read anything but the Twilight Saga for almost a year now.. How sad haha... I have put the Saga to rest now! So I came across Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, I am only a 1/4 way in but I am amused and slightly intrigued by this book. I think its come along at a time in my life where so much change is happening! I look forward to reading it this week!

Last week I was so emotional... rare for me!! I am normally sensible, level headed and quite introverted about my emotions.. My boss announced she would be leaving in Feb... I actually got teary when she told me????? WTF!!! I never cry, I then went on to get teary every time I spoke about it last week! She has been a massive part of my career it's because of her that I have the job I do. She took a chance on me after I'd only been in the field for 11months giving me the opportunity to have my dream job, when there were so any other more experienced candidates! I feel like she has created this safe nest of support for me and now I have to fly the nest after 5 years owwww..... that with all the other changes happening this year! 2010 is set to be a big year of challenges and change!!!

I am counting the weeks to my Surgery... the end of March seems so far away!

Thanks to my 6 followers for your comments, I never expected the support I have received on here.. So if your reading this feel free to follow along or comment!

Happy Monday to you all xxxx

good book, the Eat part I read quickly, slowed down some in the Pray chapters but pushed through the Love chapters quickly! Enjoy it!

I haven't read this book - but I might give it a go.

Isn't summer in Oz a pain in the butt. The heat is the worst but you guys are really going through it. I feel for you. It's leveled off at this end, here in Perth and feels much cooler. We even had gale force winds here yesterday - weird.

I expect your emotions will be all over the place for a while. You're about to embark on a huge roller-coaster made just for you: so it's ok.. have a cry.. sometimes it just does us good.

Fingers crossed the heat tapers off for you. x

Thanks for the comment on my blog and for following. I too have gotten so much information and support on these blogs. I can't wait to have my surgery and feel so anxious sometimes. I look forward to sharing the journey with you and watching your success. March will be here before you know it. Good luck.

You will have to give us a book review when you are finished. Is it fiction?

sorry you are sweating so much over in Oz...but just pretend you are in a big sauna and you are losing water weight :)
