Of trips and phones

At the risk of talking about work on my blog (yet again) things have been very busy lately. Over the last fortnight, I worked 121 hours instead of the standard 80, which basically amounts to a whole extra week, and though it's been 'extra' busy at work lately, this 'extra busy' thing seems to happen an awful lot. I really need to find a way to get some balance back in my life - I seriously can't keep going on like this!

But since I'm not entirely sure how to do that, I guess I'll blog about other things :) I did spend time in Adelaide and Melbourne on work trips over the last fortnight, and though the Adelaide trip was a six day shoot that kept me very busy, I did manage to spend an evening with some of my Adelaide relatives (grandma, aunty Leah and uncle Joel), so that was really lovely. And then I was able to tack a short overnight holiday onto the end of the Melbourne trip, and Abby came down to spend it with me so we could go and see Wicked playing for it's last week in Melbourne, so all up I'm a pretty lucky girl. Abby and I had a great time (I even managed manage to finally clear my mind of work related things about an hour before we had to catch the plane home again!). I was going to write all about our trip on my blog, but Abby put such a great post of it up on her blog that I think I'll just direct you there for a good read. She titled it "Sorry my nose is tilted so high in the air I can't see you properly down there". Like I said - a lot of fun :)

In other news, I now have an iphone (work got it for me, so I can check my emails when I'm not in the office - I've been out shooting almost constantly lately, and it's hard to be so behind on emails when I get back into the office again). Anyway, I've fallen in love with the new phone. I'm sort of convinced that the thing could fly me to the moon and back if I can just find the right application to download :) We had a show holiday on Wednesday, and it was great to finally run a bunch of the errands I've been needing to run for a couple of weeks - went to the bank, got new clinique facestuff since my old stuff had run out (and a new shirt and skirt that just happened to be discounted at Myer), etc. etc., anyway, I also got a really cute pink leather case for the new iphone, so now it looks like it's owned by a six year old girl in pigtails. But I love it :)

Anyway, I'd better run. We've got stake conference this week, and I need to start getting ready. I'm going to try and blog a little more frequently (at least to keep up the pretense that my life is balanced), so hopefully this site won't be such a boring place to visit over the next few months! :)

Have a lovely weekend!

I've decided....

I've decided to lose weight.
So I can date.
So I can get married.
So I can get pregnant.
So I can have a kid.
