Weekending and then some

It's Monday and the first week in March. I'll be honest, March isn't the happiest month for me, so I'll be happy to jump over the "March" hurdle. For today though, I'm keeping the vibes positive on the blog, starting with the glorious weekend that was ... well really this story begins before the weekend, on Wednesday.

As I said in this post, I had a work trip from Wednesday into Saturday. It was a lot of work with both Wednesday and Thursday night in the hotel finding me up at 2am with my head in the books (boo work), but a lot of fun as well. Balance people, it's key! Also, all work and no play makes Kay very grumpy. The hotel, while not my top choice (hated the decor but work put me up) was relaxing. The room was huge and I cant really complain about having a private balcony for evening coffee green tea. 


I ate good food (although I only have pics of breakfast and I ate nearly the same breakfast every day - fruit, eggs, no bread):


Drank lots of green tea ... my coffee substitute these days. I'm seriously on a green tea kick and I drank this every morning and every night. Yum:


And when I got to court each day there were ocean views from the High Court ... no matter how many times I go always amazes me:


I had a night out and a drink (or three) on Friday night and flew home on Saturday. Not too shabby a week.

Speaking of Saturday, some days I amaze myself with what I get accomplished in 24 hours. Saturday was one of those days. I flew home Saturday, and yet I found time to  complete the final draft of chapter one of my masters thesis, read comments and (some) blogs and still had time to chill with a boy (who I don't yet (?) blog about). I basically won Saturday.

Sunday on the other hand was much less productive. I basically scratched my bum all Sunday. It was fabulous! I woke up to a ridiculous email from a student (I tutor) asking why her grade on a paper was so low ... Sidenote: I am tempted to screen shot the bloody email to show you guys how piss poor (excuse my French) the grammar in said email was. I literally rolled my eyes, rolled over and slept in. I lazed around watching YouTube videos and sleeping all day and did a little work in the night. I may or may not have eaten ...

How was your weekend?

Linking up with Biana 

Have a great Monday!!

  3. Balcony!! I always want a private balcony, but they're not easy to come by at the places I've stayed recently. I am loving green tea instead of coffee too! I need a Saturday like that, but basically I would have to ban books and that just doesn't sound like fun!

  4. haha i would have told that student straight up - "because your grammar is atrocious. Fix that and you'll likely get a decent mark". or something more PC that wont make them cry lol

  13. Sounds like a great weekend minus idiots sending you emails! I used to be on a huge green tea kick and I have been less than enthusiastic about it these days. I need to get back to it! To you drink it plain or a flavored kind or add honey or anything to it?

    1. Spending it with family is awesome as well in my opinion! Best people to spend it with!

  19. Aside from the whole busy working weekend, that all sounded so glorious. Although I can't lie, I'd be more inclined to feel sorry for your working weekend if you didn't have those spectacular views!

  20. Those views are stunning! After your win of a day on Saturday you totally deserved to do nothing Sunday. I cannot stand that students feel like they deserve good grades just for turning something in. No my dear, you have to do A work to get an A.

  21. That is a thorough, balanced weekend!

    Love green tea. I actually have to limit how much I drink, I love it so much.

  22. That hotel view looks amazing - what a great work perk! I'm curious about this Saturday boy...hopefully he'll be making a blog cameo soon ;) Sending you good vibes to get through this tough month.
