Jack is visiting us for two weeks while his mummy travels. She and her ex dropped him off eight days ago before they flew off to Queensland together. Funny how stereotypes hold, in this case lesbians remain friends with their exes.
Is there ever a right time for the liquid soap dispenser to run out? It never seems to happen to me when I have plenty of time.
The sign says Degraves Street, so that must be where this 'work' is. I have no recollection of taking the photo.
The old oven is now in the building's basement, awaiting collection on hard rubbish day.
We are very pleased with the new oven. For some reason it just cooks better than the old one. Perhaps it is to do with the fact that it doesn't leak out heat, or the fine Italian workmanship.
R likes the new cooktop. I have only used it once, the wok burner. While the flame seemed lower, it seemed to be hotter with the wok heated more evenly.
The view from The Highrise has changed a lot since we moved here some thirteen years ago, with many more highrise building constructed over that period. Unfortunately we have lost some views from the bedrooms towards St Kilda.
The vase is not new, but what is in it is new, bought at the Fremantle Market. You buy the grains in a sachet, in this case we chose a clear and two different greens, put them in a bowl and fill it with water and they expand and stay wet. Kinda weird. In addition, there is a light unit that sits in the bottom of the vase, controlled by the remote. You can choose all sorts of colours, brightness and the awful automatic colour change. Sadly, it is very heavy on batteries, three AAAs lasting about 15 hours, so it will probably only get used when we have visitors, which is rather rare of late. You might suggest rechargeables but they don't last very long before needing charging and it is a bother to extract the unit from the base of the vase; well the hard part is putting it back.
We have a copper line, coaxial line, fibre optic line, gas, water, sewerage and electric, so what are the footpath hieroglyphics about, stretching along St Kilda Road and beginning to extend up Toorak Road?
I can only conclude it is to do with the Metro rail tunnel that will follow the path of St Kilda Road and Toorak Road.
None of us is perfect, no matter how close I come, and even nature is not perfect. The new balcony plant threw out a weirdly shaped and coloured flower. Do cyclamen grow on root stock and this is growth from the root, rather than the main plant? Something like that perhaps.
