Holidays

Our holidays are slowly drawing to a close but on the up-side, I’m feeling refreshed and relaxed. I started my holidays with a haircut before heading out to have a drink with everyone at the end of exams party. When I say a drink, I actually mean, 1 drink – I nominated to drive as I was exhausted from exams and didn’t really want to start the holidays off with a mean hangover. The theme for the party was Safari, however, Jas and I were slack with costumes. We focused (probably too much) on exams and failed miserably at party-prep. The best dressed had to go to Sam the South African and Wet Nurse Janey – not sure how PC those costumes are, but A+ for effort guys!

Since we finished studying, we have been on a mission to catch up with everyone we’ve neglected. We’ve seen some friends and family, but it’s hard to coordinate with everyone – there are still a heap of people I am looking forward to catching up with soon. We have also tried our hardest to tie catch-ups into meals so we can check out more food and coffee around the place. We successfully organised a catch-up with Jas’ friends at Gunshop Cafe and another friend at Elk Espresso. We are going to breakfast together on Sunday (yay, a date!) and then we’re back to uni on Tuesday (bleugh!).

Oh, I also took some photos of Jas and Kylie paddling around on stand-up boards in the canal. They scored a scoupon deal months ago but have been unable to organise a time that suited each other and the guy who ran the show. I made some GIFs that I find hilarious of the girls paddling around – they might take a while to load, but I highly recommend waiting to see them (below).

It looks nice with the sun out, but it kept hiding behind clouds and dropping the temperature considerably – I was glad to be on dry land with a jumper on!

A quick stretch and warm-up, and the girls took to the water…

… to watch how it is done.

Knee-boarding.

Standing! Woo hoo – Go girls!

From the beach, cornering looked quite hard… I was hoping for a few spills but the girls were quite steady on the boards.

Finally, Kylie got too confident and took a spill. (Haha not really – she knew I wanted to get a shot of someone falling off so she staged this one for me! – thanks Kylie!)

Here are the GIFs that I promised. I have some more of Jas paddling back and forth, but you get the picture 🙂

That’s it for now interwebs. If you are one of my readers and haven’t let me know what your blog is, please add a comment below. I am getting bored with my current blogroll and would love to see what you guys are all up to. Now I’m off to enjoy the rest of my holidays.
