Back to the Nunnery

Well I have to fix my over-optimistic analysis of my rear tyre and put on a new one there as well. It arrived today, so I headed back on down to the Nunnery to fix the tyre. This also gave me a chance to work on the ding I had managed to put . . . → Read More: Back to the Nunnery

Addison Road Market

I headed down to the Addison Road Market. It has been ages since I was there. They market is certainly going well. I bought some food from Salt Bush Lamb and one of the organic veggie shops.

On an electric bike

2010 Animal Keepers’ Record Books

A while back I was going to keep some blue tongue lizards in my garden. I got a licence, went down to Canberra where I could purchase some.

Multi Faceted

this dream I think may have occurred over several parts. In the end I chose to end it by waking up. The bus trip featured several people I know in Paddington.
