Sick as bro

Not really that sick, but it just couldn't get up to go to work this morning. I packed my laptop yesterday, after counting every down minute of the afternoon. I felt like elephant man, so congested but strangely looking normal. I rang my boss this morning to tell him I wouldn't be available. He was obviously out breakfasting somewhere, and after a miscommunication where he heard 'I've been punched in the face,' instead of 'I feel like I've been punched in the face' I felt strangely better. This is the first sick day I've taken in ages. In my role, you suck it up because the work doesn't go anywhere, and to make that worth coming back to, you'd want to he really sick. 

Anyway, enough whinging. I should be taking advantage of the daylight (boo winter) to take some eBay photos, but is think a day laying horizontal is called for.

Home for Bassike delivery. Cannot resist a Bassike sale, it seems cheating since they're 'basics'. On top is my $8 pom pom beanie 
Husbands who bring you home lentil pies for lunch when you're sick
Perfecting my toast combo favourite. Really torn-
- avo and cottage cheese
- Vegemite and avo OR
- Vegemite and cottage cheese? Constantly torn
Binge watching OITNB. Adoring this season, after taking a couple of episodes to get into it. Loving the back stories of the inmates. How on point is Aussie Yael Stone's New York/ Italian accent? Phenomenal actress too.

Queens drizzly birthday

With the craziness of the last few weeks over, I've been more than happy to stay close to home, snuggle with Marcel, eat several burgers and wear my Ugg boots to yoga this long weekend. Not sorry. Spending QT with my two favourites, Mr B and Marcel, both of whom I missed like crazy while I was away, was all I wanted to do for three chilly, drizzly days. Seems I have the knack of leaving Sydney just as she turns on spectacular weather, and returning for some proper winter temperature. Brrrrr.

We tried to go see the Vivid lights yesterday, but tragically a downpour had us stuck in the Royal Albert hotel in Surry, such a shame. Many, many craft tap beers made me forget Vivid rarer quickly. Their cheeseburger was good, with a side of sriracha sauce, but has not entered my official Top 3 Burgers In Sydney list, which is currently:
1. Churburger
2. Mary's (the top 2 are contentious between Mr B and I)
3. Paul's

The Newtown Hotel does a cracking juicy cheeseburger with extra points for the herb fries. The bun isn't my favourite, and it's a lot of meat (which is probably silly to complain about when ordering a burger).

Because I need more cheeseburgers in my life, where is your favourite burger?
