Last day at work......

.....for three weeks. Not that there's too many people here or a lot to do. After weeks of frantically typing up briefs, filling out costings templates, and the like, this week there's been........nothing. However there is still a couple of hours before I walk out of the office today so maybe I shouldn't have let that thought out!

Took my life into my own hands and headed off to the Plaza at lunchtime to search for 'the' present - hoping to get some inspiration. 'The' present is to be a surprise for Mr CJ but I have absolutely no bloody idea what to get him. He would have to be the hardest man in the world to buy for. No luck - I ended up buying Body Butter from the Body Shop for moi - I've almost run out. So I've got 3 days left in which I'm hoping inspiration will strike.

Running is going well. So much so that I forget that I ever had an injury that stopped me running for about 3 months. However I'm not pushing my luck - I'm still running between 8km and 10km but at least I'm consistent. Which is good because I'm surrounded by chocolate at the moment - chocolate santas at home, chocolate truffles at work, an amazing flourless chocolate cake made with Lindt Intense Orange chocolate that someone brought to morning tea yesterday (that was to die for....).

Tomorrow is my long run and I'm planning on running about 12km - 15 km. Then tomorrow night we're off to Christmas drinks at our friends' place - an annual event that's greatly anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed!

Have a great weekend!

Shame he doesn't run - we can always find something we need.

Have a great Christmas.

I can't help you there. Men are sooooo hard to buy presents for!

Have a wonderful & merry Christmas CJ. Hope we can catch up again early in the new year!

No we're not Jen!

A carton of mixed boutique beers always goes down well :)

Glad you've up to 10k CJ. Don't overdo things between now and the 10th ;)
