I like taking stock of my week on a Friday. The working week is (almost) done and it’s time to cruise carefree into the weekend. I had a pretty great week.
Last Saturday mum and I visited Cactus Country, an amazing cactus farm in regional Victoria. I’ve seen it pop up on a few well known bloggers’ instagram accounts of late and I think it’s getting pretty popular. They have a ridiculously huge collection of cacti from all over the world, plonked in a field surrounded by Australian bush. The landscape was so cool and alien looking. The staff seemed a little overwhelmed with guest numbers; with the popularity of cacti and how damn instagrammable it is I think they’re going to have to hire more people quick smart.
This week I did a mini challenge of spending nothing all week! It was pretty interesting and I was surprised how long I could make food stretch. I might blog more about it later.
On Wednesday night Andy and I booked flights to New Caledonia and New Zealand (Queenstown) for July/August. Two new countries! Any tips let me know.
Speaking of travel, my sister is in Mozambique at the moment and her instagram is giving me major travel envy.
On Thursday a project I have been working on communicating hit the media in a pretty major way, so I was pretty stoked with that. It’s nice to see the pay-off of hard work.
Tomorrow I am cruising around some plant shops (dangerous) with my friend Claire and on Sunday I’m checking out the autumn leaves at Mt Macedon, about an hour from Melbourne.
On my mind is whether to get the passenger side of my car fixed- I accidentally got a little friendly with a pole in the underground car park at home a few weekends ago…
Hoping my football team wins, or at least doesn’t disgrace itself too badly tonight.
How was your week? Hope you have a great weekend!
I’d love to hear more about your challenge! I’ve had a BIG fortnight of spending, and probably need to give something like that a whirl…
Didn’t spend any money!!! *while booking flights to New Zealand* hahaha
Hahaha! Look I’m prepared to admit it was flawed wording! I didn’t buy groceries, lunches, coffees, any food or incidentals (plants!) which made an big difference! Plus the flights are on Andy’s credit card 😉
Please blog about your no spending challenge! I really need to try something like this! *buys a new sweater from Country Road*
