Saturday 2nd March – Flooding


Flooding at Stones CornerAfter a quiet, and rather wet, morning Bronwen and I drove to Sizzler’s for breakfast/lunch. It has been raining most of the day.

4pmFlooding at Stones Corner

I drove to Stones Corner to give Natacha and Alexandra a lift home, only to find that it was flooded—Flooding at Stones CornerI drove to the car park, but it was full of cars with water up to their doors. I went for a little walk around the flooding, then drove the girls home.

EveningFlooding at Stones Corner

I rushed home and got my camera and Bronwen, and we drove back to Stones Corner and spent the last of the day’sFlooding at Stones Corner light following along the creek taking photos of it flooding. It wasFlooding at Stones Corner going down fairly quickly and had gone down a foot or so by the time we got there.


Bronwen and I drove to Halim’s for dinner—and took their last table. It was extremely busy. They had two tables of around twenty people, and every other table was full. People with reservations were turning up only to find there were no tables left, even though they had made a reservation. Nevertheless, our dinner was delicious.

Friday 8th March – Anne


I worked.


I had lunch with Bronwen and Anne—a French friend of hers from work.

Saturday 9th March – WYSIWYG


I had a quiet day, relaxing and not doing much of any excitement at all. I messed around with my website a little, adding a WYSIWYG (CKEDITOR) to my public site, but basically wasting away the day.


Bronwen and I drove in to West End for dinner. I had a Thai red curry—somewhat ironically, it being from Little Malaysia. It was quite different too—I don’t think I’ve ever had tomato sauce instead of sweet and sour sauce with my spring rolls before (which is not an improvement), nor does my Thai normally have pineapple in it…

Bronwen had a felafel roll from King Ahiram’s, and then we drove home.

Sunday 10th March – Southbank


I slept in, then in the afternoonGraffiti at Stones Corner Bronwen and I drove to Stone’s Corner and went for a walk to see if the bikeway is all clean after the flooding.


After our walk we drove to South Bank Graffiti at Stones Cornerand went for a walk into the city, stopping at South Bank to have Subway and laze about on the grass for a while.


I had a quiet night at home eating Bronwen’s home-cooked pasta.

Monday 11th March – Natacha & Alexandra


Bronwen and I drove to Bronwen’s work, and then me to my work. I then worked.


I had my traditional weekend veggie pasty for lunch.


I drove up to Bronwen’s parents’ place after work, meeting Bronwen there, and then to Stones Corner Govinda’s, meeting Natacha just as we arrived, and Alexandra there, and having dinner. We went to ALDI after.

Tuesday 12th March – Aldi


I worked—I was very busy, rushing to get something done and feeling like I was taking more time than I should have. I tried out my new Chai Latte I’d got from Aldi—work has one of those Aldi capsule coffee machines.


I had a Thai green curry from Sing’s Asian Kitchen with Bronwen for lunch.


Bronwen and I had Domino’s pizza for dinner. It wasn’t very good. Oh, and Aldi garlic bread. We again failed to decide what car to hire for New Zealand.

Wednesday 13th March – Tom’s Confectionery Warehouse
