Did twittering birds greeting the dawn waken you this morning? I was woken at 4am by the sound of what I think is a giant fire exhaust fan running somewhere nearby. It is still running. The noise has to be pretty loud to penetrate my bedroom, but it certainly did. I thought I'd gone to bed with the window open.
What terrible devastation in Christchurch. Many historic buildings have been damaged and the city sounds to be in a chaotic state. It is remarkable that more people weren't hurt. Not so remarkable was the looting that started soon after. There is a special place in hell reserved for those who take such advantage of people's misery. The least of many people's worries, but the trams and tram line are ok.
I am sure I'll get the football name wrong, so I will just say Storm is playing today with admittance for $1. Irresistible to Sister, so here comes Little Jo for the afternoon.
Antique scientific and medical instruments
Butterflies, insects and spiders
Wildlife and botanical art
And that is less than half of what you can find at Wunderkammer. It was my first visit to shop/museum in Lonsdale Street this week and what an extraordinary place.
Quoting myself in the midst of our recent severe drought, 'Don't worry kiddies, there will be floods again one day'. It has come to pass. Damn.
A friend has just bought a stunningly beautiful new town house in Caulfield. R saw it yesterday and is quite jealous. The friend bided his time and show no anxiousness to buy the place. A few months later as the construction neared completion, more than $100,000 came off the initial price.
Might go to South Melbourne Market this morning, once a certain person gets out of bed. I haven't had a dim sim for ages.
