Jeez that was a bloody great long weekend

April 26, 2011

My word. Five days off. Super extra great. And, dappled autumny sunshine throughout.

The Curmudgeon schemed and plotted a bike ride to the west. We saw a man knitting socks in Yarraville, a Hong Kong street dog on the Yarra punt at Spotswood, a delightfully decrepit garden in old industrial ruins at Pipemakers Park, a giant Buddha. We pootled through streets and along rivers hitherto unknown to us.

Other highlights o’ the weekend: making chutney, planting leeks and cabbages, making a killer frock, nerding up on heritage trees, seeing some chums, walking, drinking coffee and swimming my guts out.

May all weekends be five-day ones.

  1. Sounds lurvely, it does. We had nothing nearly so splendid, but it’s been a delightful week nonetheless. It’s “royal” high tea at Ciocolat on Saturday afternoon though.
