As Per usual

Well, sorry guys, I know I am two days behind. I have (as per usual) been sick with migrains the past two days! I hate them so much and I wish that they could find out what is causing them. I had heaps of medication last night that I was so dizzy that I just went to bed straight after dinner (not that i ate much). I am up today at least so I will hopefully be taking some photos! I will probably post them up later on. Hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday. I know someone getting married today, what a perfect day for it!

Day 26

How awesome is my new Owl necklace? I have this big thing for Owls at the moment. I can't get enough of them. Now I have a necklace to go with my T-shirt and my jacket and my rubons. I LOVE IT! I brought it from Portmans today after a girl from work told me that she got one.....I just had to have it!

Day 19

Well, here is todays pic. I spent all day at tafe today and listened to a very good motivating speaker Tony Purkiss. He was on the yacht that got caught in the 1998 Sydney to hobart yacht race. He also lost his sight in the Bali bombings. He was unreal. Makes you realise how lucky you are as a person. If you get a chance take time out of your busy life and have a look at his website. his story is unreal. Even better to see him in real life and be able to ask questions etc. that was my day.....How was yours?

Here is todays pic, The watch does say 17:33, and yes, I am home, in my pyjamas and have had a shower and washed my hair! Hard to believe i know! We have an all day meeting today and we got out on time so, I am actually home before dark. Thought that I would do my blog early as I have some tafe work to finish before tomorrow, and tea to cook and ironing to do etc.....

Hope you all had a wonderful day,

Lauren oops! image is sideways sorry about that!

A NEW ME! DAY 15!!

Well, today I decided is the day for me to become a NEW ME!

I got my hair done today. You cant really see it properly in these pics but im really happy with it. I got my eye brows waxed etc too......Today is the day, I become the old Lauren. The fun, chatty, energetic Lauren. I hope it lasts as I am feeling really good after a few months of health problems and big decisions in my life have now been made, I am really to fight the world head on again. I might get Luke to take some pictures when he gets home from work.

I am going to get some tafe work done now......

Will be back later.....

Day 14

Well, today was my last day @ Mayfield branch, cried almost the whole way home tonight. I was so sad....

Day 10

WOW! 10 days since I started this challenge already! That has gone so fast. I didnt get any good photos today. Im still going to take my camera to work however, we were 2 staff members short today and I was too busy to take many. This photo doesnt really look like me. I am really tired tonight, I think you can tell that in this pic! Hard day at work. I really don't want to leave Mayfield now. I'm so confused.......................

Day 7

here is todays effort for a photo, it is taken with a little cutie called Georgia. Georgia is a lady from work's child and I just adore her. She is so cute. She loves "Lozzy" and I am going to miss seeing her when I move branches. I am taking my camera to work every day this week so I am able to get photos of all the girls before I leave. 1 week left at Mayfield!!!

Day 6

Here are todays photos, feeling a bit better today, but really noticed just how much I am going to miss Leah. We had lunch today to say goodbye, it was a nice lunch at the pub! I am going to miss working with her so much, she is just awesome! We put up little goodbye messages for her to have a good trip to Europe TOMORROW~! and she put one up saying that she was going to miss me (on our works intranet) It was a sad but good day.

Day 5

I can't believe I am going to post this pic up, I really need to get more creative just not in a creative mood right now. Have so much going on in my head right now. Feel a little better today but as you can see form this pic I am just so tired. I literally had to force this smile out! I spoke to my regional Manager yesterday for about an hour about my move to Greenhills branch, I guess I am feeling a little better about the whole "move". I have decided to go. I need to stop thinking about it and just go with it. I need to become a new ME as I really feel like I need a change. Maybe a hair cut, or some new clothes or something? I just something different in my life, something I havnt done before. I need a "pick me up". I am really sad that tomorrow is my last day working with Leah. We have just clicked from the beginning and I really will miss working with her so i know that we will just both have to make efforts to see each other all the time. (I am getting teary thinking about saying goodbye to her tomorrow as she is off to Europe on Friday lucky duck!)

Anyway, enough from me, going to post this pic and head to bed!!
