Being sick sucks!

Hi guys! 

Well I've had such a draining week. 

Last Friday after work I booked in for the doc right away, I was feeling so not with it, knew something was up. After the visit I was armed with antibiotics so I tucked myself early to bed to beat this bug before it really got me.

Saturday comes around and was feeling not so good, but I powered on, it was my friends 30th birthday! I had booked massages at the Vue day spa in Geelong. I opted for a pedi and I have to say it was awesome! Best pedi I've had... But the colour selection was a bit dodgy- I think there was only around 10 colours! Haha 

The day spa is attached to the vue apartments (right near the waterfront) - so I was expecting a decent size day spa. However it wasn't really a day spa, it was just this tiny waiting area and some random treatment rooms off it. It was cute enough but nothing impressive. I do have to say the girls working there were ultra friendly and both the birthday girl and myself walked out much more relaxed than we came in. I think I will visit sometime soon seeing as I'm a gtown local again! 

Later that evening we ventured to the city to terra rossa for dinner. Mez had her birthday there a few year back and I was hoping the food and drinks would be as yum as I remembered. It definitely was!!! We went all out and ordered 4 tapas as well as a main. Talk about so much food! But all was delicious! I have to say I had the mushroom pasta for my main and I was silent the whole time I was eating it, it was THAT delicious. I love mushrooms and pasta so how could I go wrong haha After chatting and knocking back a few mocktails it was time to go home. The drive home made us laugh about old times. Sometimes I forget how long high school actually was- over 10 years! What the hell!! 

The birthday girl then surprised us with a Lancôme lipgloss when we arrived home, wrapped up as a little present and all. Such a nice thing to do- i felt bad taking it as I didn't give her a gift apart from shouting her dinner (big whoop) and a card but it's lip gloss and that's my weakness damn her haha hopefully another day spa arvo will happen sometime soon. 

Anyway when I woke up Sunday morning I felt terrible, and the next thing I know it's Thursday and I have literally been stuck here (apart from seeing the doc) since sat night. Today is the first day I've felt like I'm starting to feel like myself again but that said I still feel far from right, I'm still in a daze half the time! 

One thing I've learnt from this whole thing is that I have had signs for ages that I hadn't been 100% but i just kept plowing through. Turns out that will come back to bite you... Big time! So off to the doc tomorrow and hopefully its all good because I actually do want to go back to work. I just want normalness (if that even is a word) again! Getting sick sucks, how down in the dumps do you feel! 

So in order to cheer myself up I'm going to go back to a simpler time when I'd race home from school to watch this after 4pm... 

Heartbreak high anyone??? I was so in love with Alex Dimitriades! I still have his picture next to my computer at work curtsey of jcats hehe I wonder if this show was quite as good as I remember- but somehow I'm thinking it wouldn't be hehe
