I left Brisbane yesterday morning with a headache, a throbbing knee and in a terrible mood. My cab was late, there was traffic on the way to the airport and I was seriously considering asking the driver to turn around so I could go home and hide in bed for the rest of the day. I am in Sydney for work then off to the rowing the next day, but as you know I am carrying a minor knee injury and am detoxing at the same time. I didn't want to go to the Sydney office, and I had no idea how I was going to get from the city to Penrith to watch the rowing so was stressing about the logistics. I made my flight in comfortable time and while I was sitting on the plane I realised I was either being a big baby or a martyr (yuk!), about this whole trip to Sydney.

After giving myself a talking to I chose to be in a better mood. I ended up having a great day at work, then came back the hotel and had a very quite, and yummy, room service dinner. This morning I woke up, had a sensational steam and sauna then my favourite "healthy start" breakfast that the hotel offers.

I googled how to get to Penrith, and had an easy trip on the train. I spent the day at the Regatta Centre - wow what an amazing facility. The girls did really well and I am so proud of them (pics coming), they still have another 2 days of racing and are very positive and holding up well.

Tomorrow I will steam and have another yummy breakfast before I head out to the airport mid morning. To think I could have missed this whole great experience if I had let my cranky pants mood turn that cab around 2 days ago!

Sometimes we just have to smack ourselves in the face and get over it-LOL! Well done-and imagine what you would have missed out on!

I'm glad that it all worked out in the end and that you had an enjoyable few days in Sydney.
