100 Days of Awesome: Day Twelve - Hump Day

Wow, no wonder I was having trouble remembering this morning - I was up at 5:15 to get to work by 7. It's been a while since I was up quite that early, probably since before surgery, actually, but it was awesome knowing I could survive the day if I woke up that early!

Also awesome was people at work actually involving me in stuff that I should be involved in, which was nice!

The main HDD operator, who is 54 and a colossal flirt, bought me a packet of Clinkers and some Pineapple Lumps. He knows he doesn't have a prayer, but he's a sweet guy and likes the attention, and I don't find it at all offensive so hey, free chocolate? Awesome!

I went to the gym for my fitness assessment and didn't die, which awesome. I also stuck around afterwards and worked out for half an hour. I'm kind of proud of myself for that, actually. Unfortunately it also reminded me that my improved fitness pre-surgery has been shot to pieces and I need to start all over again...but at least now I know that I can do it, which helps tremendously. 

I watched Game of a Thrones, which can't possiy ever be anything but awesome...and yet I find myself disgruntled and dissatisfied. I know they did it on purpose, but ARGH! I WANT ALL OF THE THINGS TO HAPPEN! NOW!!!

My former sister-in-law-to-be messaged me to tell me that she played netball tonight, and they lost, and her son asked why and she said the girl she played against was really tall. "Like aunt Vanessa?" "Even taller than her." Her younger daughter then chimed in, "Wow, that girl must be as tall as a dinosaur." So cute! And good to know I'm slightly smaller than a dinosaur... And also awesome to hear from them. Awesome and sad at the same time, but mostly awesome.

Lastly, I watched my wheat bag burst into flames in the microwave, which was pretty awesome to behold m. And then the awesomeness turned to anything-but-awesomeness when I realised I have no other way to warm my stupid, perpetually cold feet up, so sleeping might be tricky for me tonight. So, awesome-not-awesome (kind of like sorry-not-sorry, I guess!). Note to self: obtain boyfriend for sole purpose of warming iceblock-esque feet on his legs. Hehe. 

Anyway, sleep time for me. And I need it, too!

Hope your hump day was awesome. You can tell me about it below, if you like. 


  1. My day.... It was great, and then my darling's bedtime rolled around. Normally a wonderful sleeper - super excited about jumping into bed with Elmo and singing a couple of songs before drifting off to sleep with the cutest little snores.
    HOWEVER, she is teething. Nasty, big, horrible molars. She quite enjoys "Yummy Panadol", so that makes medicating her easy.... But she is the biggest Daddy's Girl around. And Daddy was not home. So, after cuddling my hysterical little princess for half an hour (clearly, I'm a big softy), I had to ask Michael to come home. So he arrives, and all she needs is a kiss and a 30 second cuddle, and off she drifted to sleep. So in short, I have an amazingly awesome husband, who is the best dad in the world.
    And to all the other parents who are potentially reading this comment, I'm sorry that I complain about my daughter who didn't get to sleep until 8pm. Because I know, that is really truly awesome, and I am deeply grateful that my little girl normally goes to sleep so well.

    1. Awesomeness is all relative to one's own experience. Me running 2km probably isn't especially awesome for someone like Robert De Castella, but it is really awesome for me. And Michael is definitely awesome, by anyone's standards! :)


Give me the loves! Erm, I mean, comment here...
