And I’m back.

I didn’t mean to take such a long break in between writing, but hey here I am.

I had a lovely Christmas break, taking off a fortnight from work. I visited friends and family, I took my little Stella (car) on road trips, I went to the beach, I slept a lot, o read a shit ton of books, played my DS for hours and just generally relaxed.

I can’t get into it too much but the week before Christmas we had a pretty heavy round of redundancies at work. Adam went, my boss went and Bearded Man also left as a result.

Work has not been fun lately. I’ve spent a lot of time recently thinking about where I work, whether I want to keep working there, whether I want to stay in the same field or try something different.

I’m 30 this year and I’ve spent the past decade working to get where I am career wise. I have an awesome job title with the term specialist in it, I earn a great salary and most of the time I enjoy the work I do. But I’m completely burnt out, I’m exhausted most of the time, I dread Sunday nights and I expend most of my energy on getting out of bed on week days.

This isn’t healthy, but i don’t know what to do just yet. For now I’m keeping my options open and giving it a lot of thought.

I spent today with Beth doing wedding errands, it’s less than a month now. We tried on our bridesmaid dresses for the first time and they’re adorable, still too much tulle for my liking but they’re gorgeous.

We ordered them 6 months ago and as there was only a size 10 in stock we got measured and ordered them. There’s boning in the top and I got a very stern warning from the dress lady that they couldn’t take the dress out, at all. So for the past few weeks I’ve been living on lean cuisine trying to make sure I could fit in mine. I can’t breathe all that well but it fits and my cleavage isn’t obscene so it’s a double win.

It’s been great helping Beth with the wedding planning but I’ll be eloping. It’s all insane, between chair covers and bridezilla’s and motherzilla’s and candles and centrepieces I’m all wedding-ed out. Eloping is definitely a better prospect.

Mormon Housewife and I were supposed to be driving to the Northern Territory, a road trip to celebrate both of us hitting 30 soon. I have been looking forward to this trip for months and now the silly wench is trying to pull out. Now Beth can’t come since she’ll be on her honeymoon, the other best friend has just announced her pregnancy so she’s unlikely to want to do a 1,500 km road trip.

So I need some input, do I do the trip on my own and try and avoid a Wolf Creek situation? Do I fly to NT and have a holiday on my own?

What should I do to celebrate my 30th birthday?

Welcome back Ms Lucy! I vote for doing the trip on your own, just avoid the rough friendly slightly creepy ones 😛 Getting Stella completely checked out would help. Go and have fun

I’ve missed you! Glad you’re back. I’m thinking if no one can make the road trip definately treat yourself to a holiday. You deserve it.
