I’m a little behind in my update.
I was away for work again last week and stayed interstate for the weekend to catch up with friends. It was a busy (and rather exhausting!) week. I felt like I did spend money on things I really didn’t need – mainly to pass the time at airports! But I was happy I didn’t spend to much money eating out / drinking even though my weekend was full of catching up with friends.
Once again, I exceeded my coffee quota (are you beginning to see how much I love my coffee!!) But I challenge ANYONE spending 5 days in Melbourne NOT to drink more than 2 cups. Melbourne coffee is the best.
So, here we go:
