Seasonal Stress Beater



I've been under enormous pressure lately, carrying a heavy load for a few years, I may've finally hit the wall when all the end of year and xmas chaos hit home on top of the other stuff. I cancelled what would have been a lovely spa day with friends, but required a 4 hour drive out of town, and just decided I had to take some pressure off. The thought of it was just making me tired and unnecessarily stressed.
Bad photo but I like the sparkly things





I went to Flume on Friday, and had a great time, despite the teen deciding to be as unpleasant as possible and the fact that we'd been unable to get tickets on the floor. Sometimes you just have to ignore the negatives and dance with the 20 year old next to you, like a weirdo. Sorry, correction, an embarrassing old weirdo.


I then had a lazy Saturday, and my partner and I snuck out for lunch (sneaked just sounds wrong so I'll go with the  US invented word) at the FABULOUS Cairo Takeaway (81 Enmore Rd, Newtown) and then followed it up with a quick sip at Young Henry's. It was just what the doctor ordered. Or should have ordered. Maybe I'll become a doctor and write scripts with 'Take the day off' on it.





We followed that up with a trip to town for the xmas festivities, dinner at Assembly (488 Kent St, Sydney)  to test out their new award winning pizza chef (the pizzas are even better than before) and finished with the unexpected but joyous show at Uncle Tetsu's Angel Garden. A big special thanks to the charming waiter who was determined to get our balloon back from the ceiling...and did!













Having been all emotional and teary yesterday, I have awoken refreshed and hale (did you know that refers to an old person only?) and ready to pick up the load again. Sometimes, just a pause in proceedings is all you need. That day, I was really loving life again!











So if you are  feeling overwhelmed and over stressed, I'm writing you a prescription. Take 1 day off.


PS I've just asked when the show is on, I think Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights but will confirm.

  6. Days off are the bomb! I think we all need time out to do whatever we please at times. This is the crazy season and people do tend to get stressed and overwhelmed. Love your prescription! #TeamLovinLife

  7. I'm a firm believer in taking a Mental Health Day to rest, relax and restore. Sometimes we think we need a holiday but one day of TLC can make all the difference. I'll be taking your prescription. Sue from Sizzling Towards Sixty & Beyond.

  8. Hmm.... that show might be a bit TOO upbeat for me I think. But the downtime sounds as if it was exactly what you needed. Although you still sounded busy, but happy-busy! #teamlovinlife

  9. Could you please write me out a prescription? I guess that is cheeky considering I just got back from an 8 day cruise! Glad you paused and feel better for it! :-) xo #TeamLovinLife

  12. The perfect prescription. I've cancelled everything this weekend for exactly that reason. To give me time to breathe. I'm glad it worked for you.

  13. I am always the one dancing like a 20-something in the seats if I can't get floor tickets. I did it for Arctic Monkeys and had a blast. Sounds like you had a perfect day.
