I wrote the train times down on a bit of paper and after I did what I had to do in town, headed to the railway station. Normally writing something down is enough to make me remember, but in this case no. I missed the train. I thought I would be at Parliament Station at the time to catch the train but instead was at Flinders Street. The Parliament Station time had stuck in my head. I blame Connex. I grabbed a seat near the door so it would be easy for me to get out. Express South Yarra to Malvern. Nice. Regardless the train was jam packed. I am not sure how I managed to get out. Someone gave me a good shove out the door I think. Merci.
For one time only, R forgot to charge his phone and we were out of contact. Just the very day when I needed his phone to work. I sms Sister instead to relay the message that I was delayed to pass on when he arrived.
R was waiting in Murrumbeena Road with Little Jo. She called out to me and waved enthusiastically as I approached on foot. Not sure why she likes the grumpy uncle so much. Perhaps I am not as bad as I think.
While Sister updated her hand written diary, we carted Little Jo off to some play recreational place where you have to pay. Lollipops or something like that. It would have been too wet at the park.
Not so bad really. Little Jo had fun. I just kept thinking of Wobbies World, aka Pissweak World, in the making. Staff were suitably placed to pick up after the falls if carers were neglectful. Really, not a bad place in East Boundary Road. Some quite hot daddies there too. Around $13 for the three of us and that included two drinks.
Wonderful watching kiddies play.
Back to Sister's and bash off with Sister and Little Jo for dinner at pub in Caulfield called Zagames or something like that. I should know its history and original name, but I have forgotten. Meal was ok but no roast on the menu in a pub? My schnitzel was a bit dry. Salad and chips were excellent. Sister has her favourite wine lable. $25. Splutter splutter. I am a cheap drunk.
Hotel has play area for kiddies. The first shove Little Jo received from a fellow kiddie, R barely noticed. The second he did and got into a blue with the pushing child's mother.
Wrapped and home by 8.00 pm. Really looking forward to carting Mother out tomorrow, not.
