3 weeks to go!

Three weeks till I leave. Having only just arrived back home this week to a garden full of thigh high weeds I'm feeling a wee bit panicky! Then there's the news that the windows have arrived and my long planned renovations can commence. Yes, 2 weeks before I leave the country I will have a builder demolishing walls and rebuilding. He assures me it will only take a week. I will be assuring him that he won't get paid otherwise!! Am I crazy??

The Fiji trip has thrown me a bit as far as the exercise regime is concerned, but am back on track after a decent massage and manipulation on Friday. We're now up to daily walks, minimum of 2 hours duration, plus stretches and exercises specifically focussing on strengthening my legs and back for carrying a backpack. Pulling weeds is pretty good exercise too!

In the meantime I am desperately practicing my Indonesian language skills, that five hour drive to and from Perth was perfect for listening to lots of tapes, but after a while the concentration goes and it's time to listen to a bit of music instead. Might pop em on the ipod and take them walking as well, nothing like multi-tasking.

Lastly, it's that time of year again when I fall asleep in front of the telly every night watching the Tour de France - go Cadel!!!
