If you have been reading some of my April posts you will know that when I saw
Effy's Blog Along I thought I would share some 'diary' posts, along with some of the crafty things I have been doing.
So... not much crafting in the last day or two. I have started today's post with a photo of the iconic Flinders Street Station in Melbourne, rather than one of my art pieces.
We went to see Harry Potter The Cursed Child Part 2, on Friday night and then stayed over at our daughter's place.
Acts 3 and 4 were just as enjoyable. Tremendous effects again!
Because we stayed at Sophie's, we went out for breakfast.
My favourite breakfasts always involve a poached egg or two - although in the last few years I cooked many a boiled egg for Mum and Dad, when I was cooking their breakfasts. It was always tomato juice with Lea and Perrins, boiled egg with bread and butter, tea and toast with marmalade. I used to do poached eggs occasionally for them - but as it was also smoked salmon and Hollandaise, they probably then wouldn't need lunch.
My breakfast above included sweetcorn and zucchini fritters. Sophie had bacon - but Kevin and I have not eaten meat for 40 years. This reminds me of a conversation which Mum once had with Sophie:
Mum: 'I could be vegetarian.'
Sophie: 'Except for bacon'.
Mum: 'Yes . . . And meat'
After breakfast we went on a drive round and ended up at Abbotsford Convent where we walked round the gardens. These are right in the middle of the suburb - I am not sure if you can see the cranes in the back of the picture.
The Convent is a cultural centre and there was an art installation that interested me:
This was a gravestone for the word 'Should' by Art Therapist Robin Devries - a place to bury all those 'Should have...'s
There was also a Farmers Market at the Convent. On one of the stalls it said that mice do not like coriander. I wonder if this will help with our mouse situation?
