One thing I’ve been enjoying a lot more since moving here to Melbourne is going out for “coffee” with friends just because there’s so much more to choose from if you don’t drink coffee. Usually it’s always the same old pot of tea I have to opt for but here they are so creative!
There’s my ever favourite matcha latte pretty much everywhere then you’ve got turmeric/golden lattes, mushroom lattes (they are delicious) and even beetroot lattes. This is the pink drink Mim ordered in the picture above. I had heard of them before but never come across one to try before. I tried some of her’s and it was lovely! Quite sweet but not as earthy as you might imagine a beetroot drink to be, which I thought was nice. I went for my usual matcha latte because it’s just so good. This little place we went to, Syndicate Room is a one minute walk from our gym and perfect for a post-workout drink and catch up. We had so much to talk about! We even sat outside in the sunshine, although it was quite windy and for a second or two I was wondering if the froth on top of our drinks was going to blow away! Still it was quite pleasant to sit there and get some vitamin D.
I then waved goodbye to Mim as she headed to work and I cycled home. The rest of the afternoon on Tuesday I did some errands on my bike. However, it got so windy later in the day that cycling got really tough on my legs. Knowing I was going back to the gym later in the day I decided to give them a rest and hopped on the train back. Choose your battles!
Today it’s Thursday and I only woke up once last night around 4.30 and managed to get back to sleep after a while (not always possible for me). I then slept until my alarm went off which made me so happy. Success! I’ve just had my breakfast and just need to tidy up before heading to the gym. I’m going this morning because I can’t make it in later on today for the usual 5pm class. Other than that I just want to give the flat a little clean before my flat mates come back from their trip tomorrow.
I realised yesterday I’ve only got a week left in the flat now before I’m moving again. I need to start preparing. This time I’m living with Mim for a bit, which will be so much fun. Her and I have been flat hunting recently and fingers crossed we’ll find something soon! Flats in Melbourne are expensive but I’m sure we’ll figure something out.
Time to get this day started x
