26th January to 1st February 2012
This week we celebrated Australia Day on January 26 and it commemorated the establishment of the first European settlement at Port Jackson, now part of Sydney, in 1788. It is a day when there is an opportunity for Australians to come together to celebrate their country and culture. We can reflect on the achievements of the nation and explore ways to make the country even better in the future.
With it almost being time to return to school for a new year and because of pain and nausea, I have spent a quiet week at home reading another Secret Seven book, watching some DVD's and playing some of my favourite games.
I had my usual physiotherapy appointment at which the marvellous Kaitlyn worked on my neck and shoulders which were ever so tight and sore. At the end of the session I had three delightfully warm heat packs, they feel so phenomenal!
Yesterday I went to the oval to practise my discus which I have been having some difficulties with lately, it was a little bit windy and I must not have balanced myself very well and I had a bit of a stumble. Unfortunately I think I have done some serious damage again to my right heel as it is extremely painful and icing it stung. This meant that I could not throw at Interclub tonight and I was so downhearted. Next week is ACT Track and Field Championships and I don't want to miss doing them because competing at that event is on my Special List for this year.
Next week apart from going back to school and Championships, it is a significant week for me because on Friday it will be my 15th Birthday, which is a huge milestone on my journey.
Wishing you all a splendiferous week and thank you for continuing to follow my journey.
