The last few weeks have been totally outrageous but lot’s of fun. So today is a bit of a snap-happy post
My housemate, R bought tickets to one of her favourite bands, Coldplay months ago and was super excited. However, she had also booked a Europe trip for the same time so my other housemate E and I snapped up the tickets. I enjoy Coldplay but have never been a die-hard fan but the concert was AMAZING! One of the best I have ever been too… fireworks, glowing arm bands, confetti, beach balls and more. It’s hard to describe just how incredbile it was but I think everyone that went was feeling pretty privileged!
After the craziness that was Spring Carnival it was so relaxing to go to Dunkeld Races. A friend had organised a bus so we all clambered on early in the morning and were taken straight to the racecourse. It was great to catch up with so many people and see friends, old and new. Nothing like a bit of drama to finish the day though… I ended up in emergency at about 1am with some weird allergic reaction. On the way home my lip swelled up something crazy and my torso broke up in red itchy bumps… nothing was helping so I gave my mum an emergency call who suggested I go up to the hospital. I then spent a couple of hours waiting to be seen and was finally sent home with pills and potions. Fortunately the next morning I had recovered but I had a similar reaction the following weekend. Not sure what is going on there!?
The Friday before I returned to Melbourne we had a good friends 21st which was outrageously fun… I think we arrived at 8.30 and by about 9.30 I was on the dance floor. Of course I decided it would be a good idea to have the after party at my parents house. So after becoming disconnected the group I wandered home on my own to find the house was well and truly in party mode… champagne popped, party poppers everywhere, people throwing things in the oven and goodness knows what else. By some miracle my parents slept through it! However they woke to a very different looking house to the one they went to sleep in. Ooooops! I have no idea how they put up with a daughter like me sometimes!! Thanks M&D!! However I paid for it big time on Saturday, I have not experienced that sort of hangover since first year uni… agony!
I was supposed to drive back to Melbourne Saturday night for a party but I could barely move so on Sunday I rallied myself at 5am and drove straight to Flemington Race Course for the COLOR RUN! I have seriously been so excited about this for about a year when I first read about it on some of my favourite USA blogs. Finally, finally it came to Australia and I was determined to be a part of it. At every km they throw color on you so by the end of the 5km you are one big color mess. Above are shots of my girlfriends before and after the run. The end is probably the best, color everywhere, dance party, food and drinks. But I strongly recommend you get involved next time!
After the color run we had brunch and then I headed over to my cousin’s book launch, Diary of a Penguin-Napper. You can read her post HERE! This is her first book so all very exciting! I finally reached home late afternoon and was totally exhausted. However I have rallied this week and spent my days making Christmas Cards and applying for jobs. Oh and did I mention in between all this Warrnambool was left with no Telstra coverage!? It was bizarre, I can assure you that much!
Anyway, Happy Friday my dear’s… till next week x
