I was going to write a bit about the how exciting the World Cup has been but it's too depressing at the moment. Jason and I woke up early this morning, 4:30am to watch Australia play Germany. It was utter misery. I could not watch after we were getting absolutely smashed by them. And it didn't help that the ref 'missed' a hand ball and gave a red card (uncalled for) to our best striker, who is not able to play in the next game because of it.
So moving on before I get all upset about it again. So sorry but I really do love my soccer.
This weekend was a long weekend which I just love (even though I got up early to watch the horrible game then had to work for a few hours after, but sorry this will be last mention of it).
On the Saturday, Jason and I went to the Lifelife bookfest. That was great. I bought a few old school looking books as well as some books I used to love when I was in primary school.
The books I got. Jason bought a few too. Those Teen Power books were among my favourites in primary school. As was Nancy Drew books and Enid Blyton's St Clare's series (and Malory Towers etc.)
I love these old hard cover books. Even better when they have an inscription inside. I was going to buy a few more (in the unpriced section...books for about 50 cents) and use the covers to remake into journals. Sigh I wish I did now but I was starving by this time.
We then went to Southbank which is a beautiful place to go. There are walkways, cafes, markets, a man made beach etc. A wonderful place to spend the weekend. We had fish and chips and ate in the sun to warm up. Southbank was only a few minutes walk from the bookfest.
It really was such a beautiful day!
This is part of Southbank Parklands. I remember when they first planted those purple flower plants back when I was at school. They have grown so much. I also went to school very close to here. We used to go running up the purple plants for cross country.
For dessert we had Coldrock choc mint ice cream. Yum!
On Sunday after church, Jason and I had our usual breakfast at the Coffee Club. I generally get a gourmet beef burger and cappuccino whilst Jason always gets a BLT sandwich and cappuccino.
And this was me today before work (after horrific game). This is generally my uniform. It has to be black and white. I wear skirts or pants.
All in all it's been a great long weekend and I look forward to having more adventures with Jason. We are trying to see more places around our city and go exploring.
