So I spent the morning in the city. And what I mean by that is, I picked up my mum at seven AM and then dropped her back home at three. PM.
We did what we usually do, breakfast, shopping, lunch. You’ll be happy to know that I found some cute new clothes in the children’s department. And this time I even ventured into the boys section. Really, you won’t be able to tell unless I tell you.
But then we did something we don’t usually do.
I needed to get a gift for a friend’s birthday (only thirteen days to go). And I feel like I give her the same things all the time, so I wanted to find something a bit different, but still her. And so mum and I headed into the QVB. Normally we just walk through the underground bit that connects Town Hall with Pitt St. But today we ventured up the harrowing escalators all the way to the top level.
I had forgotten how many nice places were up there. And discovered that one of my favourite shops from Florence now has an outlet there.
We have a new plan now for city expeditions too. We are going to have breakfast in a new place each time we go in now. Though we are pretty set on our new lunch spot in The Galeries. It’s just too good.
So now I am just hanging at home, waiting for my husband to come back from cricket training.
It is (and has been) odd for me to have so much time on my own at home and usually it leads to a lot of trashy TV watching, such as the show referenced by The Drugs
But my favourite show at the moment is Veronica Mars. I didn’t think I would find anything I liked better than Gilmore Girls, and Smash is probably my favourite contemporary show, but Veronica Mars is amazing! And in the episode I watched yesterday she even referenced Gilmore Girls!!
But watching TV can get a bit boring. Having a lot of time at home has led to my listening to a lot more music (and apparently losing my grasp of English grammar). At first I thought the opposite would be true because I used to listen to the radio primarily in the car. But lately I’ve bought a few new CDs and I either listen to them on rotation or plug in my iPod. I forgot how much music there is out there that I like. I have been rediscovering everything I used to listen to. But I still need the radio for hearing new stuff.
And I just wanted to share this:
Coming up on my next blog: I will be more coherent. Promise.
