THE WEEKLY NOTES #14 christmas planning, Melbourne marathon & shoe shopping problem?



The Weekly Notes are back after a bit of a break. This week has been so super busy with trying to get ahead for the festive season – I know I sound like a broken record but I’m REALLY trying to be organised this year because last year was so super stressful.


On the topic of the festive season I’ve started planning my Christmas list… Please tell me I’m not the only one?! I’m a huge Christmas lover, like my Mum, and I love really planning out my gifts. I have a few ideas for some people but I’m struggling with a few as well. Does anyone else get stressed about finding the perfect gifts? I love finding something that is perfect for people so when I don’t have an idea I freak out… Anyway we have AGES so I should be fine :P


Last weekend we went down to Melbourne so Isaac could run his first half marathon and he did so well. Not only did he finish but he also did a PB time! So super proud of him. Simba came along and he loved all the attention he got. I’ve been around athletic races my whole life with my parents both doing Ironman competitions and the community feel is just awesome. I really love it!


Okay guys I’ve serious I’m now officially on a spending ban with shoes because I’ve bought a total of 4 new pairs in the last month! How has that happened? In my defence 1 pair is for work purposes and another is for a wedding I’m going to later this month… But still. I’m addicted. No new shoes for at least until after Christmas.


Also a couple of people have asked to see blog posts on meals I eat as a vegetarian. Kind of like ‘what I eat in a day’ – would you be interested in that? Let me know in the comments!


What’s been happening for you guys? Anything exciting?

    I really try to plan christmas but I am the worst at thinking of what to buy people. I usually end up asking them what they want at the last minute. lol.

    I’ve decided I’m going to be organised this Christmas, and hopefully have most of my shopping done by the end of November… hopefully. I think one of my love languages is gifts – I just love buying gifts for people that I know that they’ll love, so I put a lot of pressure on myself to make sure they’re perfect!

    I love ‘what I eat in a day’ posts….probably because I’m super nosy hahaha.
