I really have to start going to bed earlier. The trouble is that I keep waking up around 4am every morning, needing to go to the toilet, and then I wake up properly at about 7am. With my bedtime nearing midnight most days, I am starting to deteriorate. Exercise and early nights will be the answer. I got more exercise today than most days lately, but still not much. It came in the form of two walks to Northbridge and back. The first was to go out for brunch with a friend I have made through Instagram. We went to Babushka’s, where I ate a smashed avo meal with a Tim Tam milkshake. Not bad at all. The second time was in the evening to join my brother Paul and friends Jayden, Kobie and Todd for a night at the Ocean Film Festival.
Here’s a time warp for you (given the fact that my diary is one year behind): today (2017) my website published a diary entry talking about my last year’s (2016) attendance at the festival, and now on the same day a year later (2017) I am attending the festival again, and writing about it in a diary entry that will be published on my website in one year’s time (2018).
The movies were great as usual. My favourites were Sea Gypsies and Four Mums in a Boat. The first was about an interesting crew of people sailing from New Zealand to Patagonia via Antarctica. The second was about four English women in their forties and fifties who completed in a rowing race across the Atlantic Ocean. Watching such films really inspires me to keep making my videos.
