INSTAWEEK 016.

Homemade tiramisu. I started my 'Line A Day' journal today. Fresh green juice. Pulling silly faces on the couch. Housemate movie night. Waiting at the doctors. Looking up. Fresh melon. Essential summer products. #SAHeatwave. Waves at the beach. Planning what to pack. Sun setting at dinner. Drinking water by the litre. Salt and pepper squid.
This year, I'm going to add a little text to these Instagram posts. To not only share a little more about me with you, but to record more about my life. I like to look back over these posts, although it is a bit cringe worthy, and remember that dinner, the heatwave, how much melon I ate that week (alot!). I've always found it hard to keep up with journal writing - I've started numerous but they've never lasted. I find it too hard to sit down everyday and write about my life and it gets a little too Adrian Mole for me liking. I figure that adding a couple of lines to these weekly posts would be a good start. I'm trusting you to make sure that I keep up with this.

I've spent almost the best part of this year (hehe, I love this little joke!) lazing around outside, soaking up the sun. We had a quick appointment at the travel doctor to finalise our vaccinations, and then picked up a stupid amount of pills we'll need for when we're in Malaria areas. I started a list of things I want to take with me too. It's only ten sleeps until we leave now. While it's so close, it doesn't feel real yet. I wonder at what point it will. I've hit the beach a couple of times this week and love it. I love the feel of sand in my toes and could spend house floating in the shallow waters, watching the sky. Ever the foodie, I had to snap the last picture of my salt and pepper squid (another thing I've grown to love recently) at dinner last night. I'd like to try re-create this at home as it's pretty much all that I ever order when we eat out.
