Hanging By A Thread

5 days.

5 days, 7 hours, and 12 minutes.

Thats exactly how much time is left until I board the plane at Marseilles Airport that leaves for Malta.

I’m going on a 1 week holiday with my sister, her husband and baby boy.

I cannot tell you how long I’ve been waiting for this.

It all started when I went to my chiropractitioner for an adjustment in August 2018.

He worked on me in silence for about 20 minutes, until suddenly :

« What that hell have you been doing to yourself ? »

I didn’t really know how to respond. I hadn’t really been doing anyuthing at all, except the usual overworking, overstudying, overstressing and everything.

He asked me when I’d last taken a break. A real go-on-holiday-for-a-week type of break, not a take-a-few-hours-off-to-snack one.

Aha. Well…
He was not amused, and told me in no uncertain terms that I needed a rest. Or else.

Feeling slightly freaked out, I figured that a small holiday wouldn’t actually kill me. And my sister, who had a wedding to organise, seemed to be feeling a little bit… tense.

So I bought us 4 tickets to Malta as a birthday gift for my Sister, narrowly avoided dying in the process because of my sisters Birthday Curse (this is a tale for another day) and here we are.

Less than a week to go.

I am looking forward to this SO. MUCH.
I can’t wait to tell you all about it next time!

What about you? Do you have anything super cool that you’re looking forward to ? A new book release you’re waiting on? Something else? Send us an email at, or leave a comment below and tell us all about it!
