  1. I was at Knox today, interesting that most of the food on offer there was of the big chain variety or gluggy, revolting fried options. I won't be back in a hurry!!

    1. Fen, we weren't actually inside the shopping centre but outside at one of the cafes. I was quite impressed by the row of cafes.

  2. The flowers and other exhibits are lovely but $25 seems a bit much. I suppose they have their costs to cover.

  4. $25 - was this for the Better H&G show? It should be free considering that it's all commercial stuff inside! (climbs off pedestal now and reaches for wine)

  5. Kath, Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, but yes, Better H&G is one of the sponsors, although Jenny Craig seemed to dominate this year.

  7. You will probably miss your visitors Andrew, but I can't help feeling that after all this jaunting about, you might be quite pleased to get back to normal and have a relaxing weekend oui!
