While I work often on Sundays, I have not for the last few weeks and we have done many things. We visited the mega hardware store in Menton, not our closest which is in Altona, for some bits and pieces.
We bought a screw and a dimmer switch for our lounge/dining room area. The dimmer switch rating was 300 and the fine print said the total wattage must not exceed this. Two by 100 in one light and two by 40 in the other comes in under. Perfect. I have fitted many dimmer switches in our various homes but this one has me beat. I used to confidence in sticking a wire in a hole and hoping for the best. I have put it on the back burner. R steered me to the energy saving light bulbs, but none are really appropriate for any reason.
Then we did the shops. We did Freedom at Victoria Gardens recently, but near the Moorabbin Freedom, there is an enclave of furniture shops. We did the lot and then headed to Harvey Norman in South Road and bought a new cordless keyboard and mouse, our third. Our old mouse was held together with sticky tape, so I could not argue too much. Finally Logitech has it right. The new one was just plugged in and it worked. Both of the previous ones were so troublesome to get going.
My feet were hot and I was tiring. I must have a nice coffee reward. Drive on to Brighton Beach Station and have good coffee at a place called Bisket. Warm sun, cool breeze, ocean to look at, people coming and going and a wide open view.
Home and put up a shadow box in my bedroom to display my Broken Hill mineral collection. A screw was needed. Install cordless keyboard and mouse painlessly. Painfully try to install light dimmer.
Walk up Toorak Road and meet brother friends for dinner at an Italian or is it French restaurant. La Pig or something like that. Very posh, not.
Brother friends drive us home so we have to ask them in for coffee. Nice chat and pumped them for some information on what they are going to do with the money from the sale of their East Melbourne apartment. I don't know but I don't think they have done anything with it yet.
