Girl’s tears, Gardening & Gone Girl


I have for some time now, appreciated why the more “mature” generation turn to gardening. It can be very therapeutic. On Saturday Tress and I went to a café in Hawthorn, just before 8am, for breakfast. It was one of those deals she picked up and it was a wonderful deal because the food, coffee and staff were all very good. After brekky we went to the local Bunnings store, picked up a couple of small items and a compost bin, and went home for some gardening. We were at it from around 9.00am and didn’t stop till just after 2pm. The big breakfast provided plenty of fuel and we just kept going. Tress did a lot of work vacuuming and tidying up inside the house. We finally wound up the work, washed up and left home close around 2.30pm, went to Doncaster to get fulfil some Malaysian orders. We picked up a Bose ipod dock and some other items, then shopped for groceries and came back, walked the little fellow and did a barbie of leather jackets for dinner. Later that evening we watched Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson in The Bucket List which was a surprising tear jerker. For Tress…

On tears, I caused some on Friday night. Little Sheryl is a bucket of fun these days. Tress and I caught up with her parents, Jason and Mel at Sheryl’s home. Jason, Mel and us had planned to have dinner in a pizzeria up Mitcham Road but I thought we could do takeaway pizzas and catch up with Sheryl and her family instead. I don’t think Gerry and Jess are the pizza types. I’m pretty sure Jessie, Jess’s mum (yes that’s right) isn’t one. But they were gracious enough to go along, and supplemented the meal with chicken wings and salad. We were in the sitting lounge after dinner and Sheryl and I were playing. A little 1 year old is hard work for me so I was very proud of myself when I made her laugh and she was having a ball tipping over little towers of building blocks I set up on the floor. A little 1 year old also walks with a funny gait and as she tumbled forward towards me, she knocked her head on my knee… Other than that it was a great time catching up with these families.

Sunday was near total free and easy – once our half-sofa donee picked up the piece and left our lounge room less cluttered. We watched Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike play it out in front of tabloid media in “Gone Girl” later that arvo before getting ready for the week again…
