Today was a quiet day. The weather was showery. All I had to do was collect a parcel from the post office. I left while the sun was shining and there was a breeze – pleasant weather to wander around in. I got to the post office collected my parcel – my second packet of cotton for Elsie’s throw (I was beginning to worry that it wouldn’t get here!). As I went to leave the rain poured and poured and poured. I stopped waiting for it to stop and began browsing in the post office. I managed to pick up a few gifts for the children in my family – not going to give the game away on here just in case! Once I had exhausted the post office the rain had lessened enough for me to get next door to a tourist shop selling didgeridoos, crystals and aboriginal art. I found a few interesting postcards…
The rain stopped and the sun came out so I made my way back via ALDI to get some more Lamingtons. I spent the rest of the afternoon writing to Castell a list of things he needs to remember before he leaves for his own trip to Australia! I had real problems sending the emails using my iPad and it was quite frustrating but I got there in the end.
I cooked supper using a steamer – which took ages and doesn’t usually. I do like the idea of a steamer and may purchase one when I get home. You may have guessed that I am now on the rota for cooking! Alice and Jon (I was going to say “we” but that would be a lie!) are trying to be healthy during the week so any recipes for fish or chicken without dairy would be much appreciated – the simpler the better!
Later I managed another instalment of my audio book and some knitting – another square done!
