A Day of Driving About

Mutterings continued.

and eating lots for lunch.

Went shopping at Action, bought fruit, meat, cat litter, nothing exciting. And I bought a new sandwich (or 'sammich' as Crow Robot would have it) maker.

Had lunch with Genette at the Secret Garden in South Perth - we both had chicken parm., which comes with a heap of vegies, salad and THE most wonderful chippies, and ice coffee with ice cream. As I was waiting for Genette, I heard a lot of shouting coming from the cafe; I think the chef may have chucked a wobbly. It didn't have any effect on the food, though the woman behind the counter was looking very harrassed.

And then it was off to Spotlight for more flowers. I've finally finished Perdita's circlet of flowers and it doesn't look too bad. I just hope it stays on her head. If the bobby pins don't hold it, there's always industrial strength staples.

I'm taking Dad to visit his sister in a nursing home in Rockingham tomorrow. Hopefully I won't get lost but it's in a new development that isn't in my map book. I had to ring the home and ask for directions.

And drink cans have always been 'pop-top'. Anyone remember the cans that came out with two holes that you had to push open with your thumb. Scary stuff.
