Best and Worst of the Week.

How’s your long weekend looking?


The time has come again to share our weeks with each other. To catch up on what we’ve been doing, how we’ve been feeling and what we’re planning for the weekend ahead. I’ll go first.

This week I was supposed to be on holidays. However it’s been anything but a vacation. The week has passed by in a blur of extra work shifts, forgotten assignments, not enough sleep and too much coffee.

It’s not all bad – somehow, somewhere in this little mess I found my exercise motivation. The warmer weather just does things to me and I believe I am truly a happier person in summer. Is that bad? I promise I’m still nice in winter too (sort of…)

My worst would have to be hearing the devastating news of Jill Meagher’s body being found this morning. I suppose it is a tiny consolation that they have a suspect in custody and hopefully justice will come for Jill. This tragedy truly brings to light questions about the safety of women travelling alone at night. All our thoughts are with Jill’s husband, family, friends and colleagues.

Here’s what else has been happening around the Mamamia office and on social media this week:

Freya is a Sydney journalism student and an intern at Mamamia, who wants to know at least a little about everything. Her friends have taken to calling her ‘crazy cat lady.’ You can check out her Twitter here.

So how was your week? What were your best and worst moments? What are your plans for the long weekend?
