The one where we talk about the weekend again because it is my favourite and now I get one every week?!

So over the last two years I have basically not done the whole weekend thing, and certainly never on the actual weekend (does that make sense?). Turns out doing your masters actually takes quite a lot of study (YA, my brain pretty much exploded) and so I usually had one day off per week and never on the weekend as that is when I waitressed like a beast because Sydney is the most expensive city ever.

But now the tables have turned- I am no longer a student (!!). I really thought that day would never come, but somehow it has. I have the entire weekend off from Friday afternoon until Monday when I start again and it is the BEST FEELING EVER, almost too frivolous but I am quickly adjusting 😉

Longer runs and workouts are happening.

Yoga is happening.


Crumpets are happening.


Weekends with the family are happening.


It is generally a time for a large amount of sugar


(The BEST dessert mum made for me last time I was home because I am not really a big cake person but I am definitely a large amounts of sugar person).


Also, don’t be too jealous but we live in a city where there are a bazillion spas and mud pools to sit in so THAT IS FOR SURE HAPPENING. #volcanolife.


So even though it’s only Tuesday here in NZ….


Hope your week is off to a great start!

What is in the cards workout-wise this week? 

Favourite part about the weekend? – Making actual coffee in the morning not instant coffee like on weekdays is up there for me 🙂

Do you have a special cup you drink from? Are all your cups the same or do you have a bunch of randoms? – this is an important question because I feel like people who have their life together would have all the same cups?! Aka not me… I have always been weirdly into having a special coffee cup and now my cupboard is full of the most random assortment of cups.

Do you have crumpets in your country? – Curtis is obsessed because they aren’t big in Canada at all? Here they are normal breakfast food

  1. That’s cool that you get to enjoy your weekends now! It’s a different life for sure! I’m enjoying the pictures of everyone wearing hats and curling up around the fire. I thought it was getting cooler here in the States but today it was hot and humid again. Tomorrow should be better weather – I’m running my marathon!!
