Baby, it's cold out there!

We're in the middle of the two coldest June days in Melbourne since God-knows-when, and I got out of bed at stupid o'clock and went to the gym anyway.

*waits for applause to die down*

My day was awesome yesterday - well, mostly. Apart from two crappy coffees (our machine is currently awaiting repairs - boo!) and internet dramas all night, anyway. I had a great little workout, a dream drive to work, and an easy day at the office. I also bought a shiny new set of Scanpan Coppernox saucepans, and got home nice and early. I felt good all day, even though it was F.R.E.E.Z.I.N.G. outdoors. (Did it snow anywhere other than Ballarat? Must go check the news)

Then last night we managed to book airfares to Bangkok for October for the both of us for less than we paid for a single fare back in 2002! :) Now I'll be spending some time perusing websites, brochures and my Lonely Planet Guide to figure out our itinerary and find cheap accommodation and domestic airfares. The plan is to spend a few days in Bangkok, a few in Chiang Mai and then veg out at a beach resort for a week or so.

The thought of a tropical holiday should get me through winter. Even if it is 5C, with a windchill factor of Oh my God.

ahem!! I'm here in shorts and tshirts. We've chosen the BEST week to be up north. I sweat so much when I work out even my knickers get wet!!!

*ahem* Linda, that just might be TMI. ;)

ENVIOUS! I love Bangkok, even with the 'slapped with a hot wet towel' first impression.

Ah, but you have a European summer trip coming up. I'm envious of that!
