According To Matt Archives- A Week In Fethiye

Finally, I get back to sitting down at my laptop. I cant believe how fast time has gone! One whole month since my last post.....EEEEEEEEEEK!
I've had a pretty hectic month. Returning back to "the show" after vacation took some getting used to. However, getting back into a regular routine was put on hold as I ended up getting injured. Nothing serious and all is fine now. A twisted pelvis from some of the bungee work which meant lots of pain when trying to dance. Just a little bump in the road, but after lots of physio and pain relief I'm back in the game!!!
I also had some time away with my family. Something that I haven't done in a while, due to working out of the country for the past five years.
I joined my Mum, Dad and younger sister on their holiday to Turkey for a week. We stayed in a little town called Fethiye and got to spend a week eating delicious food and visiting so many interesting places.
The weather was fantastic and really gave me a boost of energy!
It really was an amazing week and I loved visiting the nearby islands and seeing so much wildlife along the way. It really was such a treat for me when we happened to spot a sea turtle. We were able to watch it for a good five minutes as it swam and fed in the shallow water of the harbour.
Whilst away I also spent a good amount of time at the side of our swimming pool reading some wonderful books:
The Celestine Prophecy and Tuesdays with Morrie, are two of my favourite books. I have read them both many many times.
I first read The Celestine Prophecy about six years ago when I was going through a bit of a "down" time. It really broke me out of my bout of depression and made me look at things from a different angle. It really speaks to me and I always seem to come back to it when I want to feel a little more balanced.
Tuesdays with Morrie. Such a touching book and like the Celestine Prophecy gives me a different take on life. It really is a MUST!!! I would recommend it to any and everybody! These are two books that I always come back to time and time again.
Finally, Kathy Griffins book!
All I can say is this lady TICKLES me!!!
Such a funny read. I'm a huge fan of KG. She's so frank and quick with her humour. Sometimes too far for some people, but you have to give it to her for pushing boundaries.
I became a big fan of hers since watching her reality television series "My life on the D list" and her phrase 'SUCK IT' has kind of become my motto over the past few weeks. (I think that's why I needed the other two books to level me out! )
