Me, myself and Mad Men Series 2

This afternoon, Chris has taken all the kids to my nephew's ten pin bowling birthday party in Brisbane. They are having dinner at my Mum and Dad's house so they won't be back until at least 7.30 tonight . I couldn't go because I had to go to my booking in appointment at the hospital.

Not that I'm sad about it. I've had a great afternoon. After I was finished at the hospital, I went and had an iced coffee, a melting moment biscuit and read some newspapers in a cafe overlooking the river. It's a beautiful sunny day here, so that was very pleasant. Then I went and wandered around our local Tender Centre to see if there was any cool stuff I could put a bid on (there wasn't, but it was nice to wander around slowly and not have to worry that children were getting into things they shouldn't be). I was hoping to find the second hand bookshop open but unfortunately it was closed.

And now I'm blogging. I'm about to go and get the washing off the line, think of meals to eat this week and write a shopping list. Some ukulele practice for tomorrow morning. And then an evening with my Mad Men Series 2 DVD that was waiting for me at the library today. Hopefully I'll be able to stay awake.

Solitude and stillness are blissful things when you don't get them very often.
