Somewhere between 6:30 and 7am this morning.....
We cycle about 7 1/2 or so km to work, across the city and through Hagley Park and over to Addington.
I can get my hair and a beanie under my helmet as long as I use my smaller padding thingy!
It was pretty brisk this morning, hence the jacket and scarf.
This is a very common sight around the city now.
The rubble of a partially collapsed building or partially demolished site.
We're on Peterborough St here, and I would say about 85% of this street is going to a blank space soon.
I swapped this coat for with a former friend back in the 90's for one that no longer fit me. It's been missing a button almost that long!
I got my
knitting bag handbag at the Shabby Chic market for a fiver from the stall next to me!
After we finished work at 11am, we cycled around the North side of Hagley Park to enjoy the blossoms!
We get excited about these every Spring!
I'm wearing my big "over glasses sunglasses"! Not the most attractive, but I love 'em!
I only need glasses when I am driving, but I like them for cycling and watching TV for extra clarity. I don't need them to sew, read or use the computer!
I can't read street signs without them, and I feel a bit panicked if I don't have them on when I cycle.
My necklace is from Max , my earrings from Jen and my faaaabulous 60's hair decoration is from Sarah !!
Frock-vintage, Trade Me
Socks-Sydney markets a few years back
Then we stopped at the Thai food caravan on the corner of Bealey Ave and Caledonian Rd!!
Making great use of demolished site!
We've spotted an expresso caravan up the road, and are hoping this takes off!
We've been to this Thai caravan a few times now, their Paenang curry is sublime, as are their vege spring rolls, and I had their larb moo (beef salad) today and loved it!
They used to be the Isarn restaurant, apparently, and were on Hereford St, which is deep in the "red zone"-where we have not been allowed to go since February. Mostly rubble now, I believe!
I fecking adore Thai food!
So fresh and piquant!
I love Mexican food for the same reason.
Tonight we are having our lovely friend Dave K over for dinner, we're cooking Japanese, which is easy to cook for a vegan!
Just sushi, G's specialty( hurrah for our Japanese sister in law who taught him how!) and a tofu/miso soup that I fancy throwing udon noodles into.....mind you, I am thinking about jungle curry......
We'll also probably drink quite a bit of vodka and talk shit.
