A friend sent a message last week asking what type of batteries I ran on because we were always out and about doing "stuff". Now I know that most people, especially those with kids, are also kept busy doing "stuff", the only difference is in the stuff we do. Mind you, by Saturday night Emi had run out of batteries (I told him not to buy those cheaper ones), so I had to give the old bull a day off.
The last week or so has certainly been not too bad in terms of ticks off the list.
Witches in Britches (a theatre restaurant), was OK. Show was a bit silly and not as good as Dracula's, but the food was fine and as I had a voucher, it wasn't a bad deal.
Finally got to see a football (sorry soccer) match at AAMI Park. Melbourne Victory v Perth Glory with MV winning 4-1. Great night, great stadium and a really good atmosphere. Now we're not talking Real Madrid here, but a fun night. Even took along our own bocadillo, snacks and water although we succumbed to the smell of hot chips. We were sitting right next to the Glory supporters and I reckon there were a few diehard fans that I recognised when I first went and saw them play back in Perth during their first season.
Monday was a public holiday and I was in Burger Addiction heaven - The Big Burger Biannual! Food trucks and stalls serving burgers of all types and shapes, oh how to choose!? Settled on a Skipping Girl burger seeing as that was one of the places on the list. Cute buns, the Skipping Girl logo is stamped on the top, but the burger itself (I went the chicken) was a little disappointing. Managed to also try the Sliders on Tyres burgers and chicken wings (hey they're sliders OK i.e. baby burgers). Rolled home, and I mean literally as we went on the motorbike.
B's Farewell 40's Birthday Breakfast with bubbles at The Bank on Collins. Been wanting to visit this place because it's such a lovely building for ages. Didn't disappoint. Having to go to work afterwards did a bit. Talking of the lovely B, celebrating with her at her 50th at Riva was fabulous. Great night had by all, stunning location, good food, drinks were flowing, band had everyone up dancing and a photobooth for a bit of a giggle. May the Year of Yes continue to flourish for the gorgeous B and be filled with amazing experiences.
Batteries certainly felt a bit flat this morning after several glasses of bubbles. But amazing what a walk along the beach and a little siesta can do. So what's the secret? No idea, but no time to stop and find out. Just get those jumper cables out and keep on going.
