Last week I got to work in country victoria for 3 x12hr days of intense research work. It was fun to have a trip away, and even better as I was working with some colleagues who are also friends. There were four of us and we stayed at one of of the team’s house which happened to be in country victoria, which meant I got to wake up to kangaroos, ducks and beautiful scenery outside my window every morning. Not to mention the smell of beautiful fresh baked bread made by my friend’s husband (who acted like our own personal butler cooking for us and even encouraging me to use his awesome massage chair!)
We worked long days intensely, but had lots of laughs & got to watch the amazing sunset from the spa on the deck. The only downside was the chilly spring weather, which I have to admit my Qld acclimatized body didn’t cope too well with in the following week – I got sick 😦
We did get a lot of work done (as you can see by the pics), and this was a really fun way to work. We had 6 laptops for 4 people 🙂
I love my job because every week is different. I love that my work comes in many guises.
On Friday night we visited some other colleagues / friends in Melbourne for an amazing home cooked dinner and by the end of the night it was hilarious as all 4 of us were sitting with our iPads playing words with friends against each other. I was introduced to this game during the week and now I’m hooked! So we got another recruit that night too. I guess it was similar to what I would have done as a youngster playing scrabble as a board game, but we have moved into a new era 🙂 fun, fun, fun, if not a little bit silly! 🙂
It was a really great week…
