We're going away

I had originally planned to take some time off at the end of clerkships because the last 3 months has been mentally draining and physically exhausting! My manager pulled me aside the other day and told me to have 3 bonus days off (at the end of October) for working so hard – Sweet!

The timing was perfect because 2 days later I ended up (jointly) winning ‘Employee of the Quarter’ for last quarter and won $250 to be put towards a weekend away. As much as I love our new house I really REALLY need some time away from gardening, painting and general house work!
As usual Jacky did all the research and we've booked a short break (4 days & 3 nights) to Ettalong Beach Resort. I'm so excited because other than a long weekend away at Terrigal earlier in the year, I haven't had annual leave in almost 2 years due to having all my leave paid out when I changed jobs.
In a little over 2 weeks I will be here.....

We booked the 1 bedroom suite

For some reason I own 5 bikinis, I expect to get good use out of them & to come back with a tan
Then there's the local markets, seafood, restaurants and we're just across the road from the beach...I can't wait!

You deserve it Em! I don't know how you find all the energy to do the things you do. I get tired watching you.
