Where I stayed
With my big sis
What I did
Christmas, NYE, Nephew time, Gun Shooting
I was excited to see and cuddle my nephew Blake for the first time. A happy moment to see my sister holding her son and caring for him
This break overall was the best I’ve had back in Perth. I’ve had some great individual moments during my Perth breaks, but tend to stress myself out and feel overwhelmed with all the things I want to do in 2 weeks. This break the only times I felt overwhelmed was in the Coles grocery section with all the choice and then in Sanity where I realised I knew very little of the music/DVD’s on the shelves. Nothing that a credit card couldn’t fix.
Special highlights were a trip to Kings Park on Christmas Eve to look over the beautiful city I call home; Christmas Day drunken darts; Swan Valley with my friend Amy in 40C+ heat; home-made pizza at Jon & Fi’s; shooting my first gun with Maitland on new years eve – made for interesting conversation later that evening when asked what I did on the final day of 2012; New Years Day swim (surprisingly the only time I went swimming this break despite the ridiculous heat...bit sad that I didn’t get to the beach); big night out with Melissa with one too many black sambucas at the casino; day-trip to Bodd.
And so a new year begins. Twenty thirteen. My resolutions are to hate Americans less, be more positive, and withhold comments that could be misinterpreted as condescending. Last year was huge for me: turning 30, taking my Mum to see Europe’s gems, attending the Olympics, travelling through Namibia, re-financing my home loan from Ghana without having a mental breakdown, and becoming an Uncle and a Godfather (twice)
So it was with these thoughts in my head, the plane departed home on a crystal clear Sunday evening where I had a perfect view of the city lights, the darkness of the river and Kings Park, Subi Oval lights, and then the Sunday Sesh parties at Cottesloe (the closest I got to my fav beach!).
