Pic of the Week
Boys trip to celebrate a mate's birthday. We started with drinks at Montalto Winery then a long lunch at Pt Leo Estate (amazing). That afternoon we went to a friend's bush block in Merricks for a swag campout (beautiful). So therapeutic to sit around a fire with like-minded mates and solve the challenges of the world over a campfire meal and a glass of wine. When was the last time you had a “boys” or “girls” trip? I find the 3 keys to making it great are…
● Go with like-minded people.
● They need to be easy and don't take themselves too seriously.
● Make it easy for the event to happen.
If you were to book one who would be on the invite list?
Here are the top three things that have made a difference in my week.
They might also be useful for you, or not.
1) A last-minute dinner I had with my wife at...
We love this restaurant, for many reasons. The service, food, and atmosphere take you on a journey to Paris. (Possibly the closest we’ll get to the real thing for a while). Plus it holds a special place for me, from a lunch I had with my dear departed Dad. It was a last-minute decision to drive into the city on Friday night. Sometimes the best nights are those without all the planning and preparation.
2) Some cosmetic surgery I had at...
One of my only (many) vices is loving the sun and a tan. Because of this for the last 10 years, I’ve been getting mole mapping and skin checks every year. Just recently I noticed a spot getting bigger and darker on my temple, so I dropped by for an earlier appointment to see what was up. The good news is that it wasn’t cancer. The bad news is I was told I had a “Barnacle” on my temple. Barnacle! I don't do barnacles, I told the doctor. She offered to remove it. I said, “absolutely yes”. If you, like me, expose yourself to the sun regularly, I suggest you get in the routine of a regular skin check, or even better, an annual mole mapping.
3) A new type of milk I’m drinking...
After being on Soy Milk for years, I’ve decided to make the shift to a “Milk” that is more neutral. I basically have no dairy in my diet (except for the mother-in-law's cream sponge once a year), but love a cup of tea or the occasional bowl of cereal (coco pops if at a hotel buffet breakfast). I must say it’s pretty good. In fact, it's really good. There is plenty of it available at supermarkets now and all good cafes have it for your latte’s. It's also easy to make yourself. Give it a go HERE.
P.s. The quote of the week is...
“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” Marcel Proust
I would love your feedback on what had an impact on you and the lesson in it, the moral of the story, or the learning you would share.
Have a ripper finish to your week.
