2015 weeks! #29: eating and drinking and fat ankles

2015-07-27 08.34.40Another Monday morning walk to school for Jude and me.

2015-07-27 18.47.45I was planning on cooking dinner Monday night but the meat was off and I had to go and catch a plane after, so we went and tried out the Schnitzel Haus on Lonsdale Street. Verdict: excellent parmigiana, would eat again.

2015-07-27 19.43.53Night flight to Sydney to avoid super early departures the next morning.

Next morning it was off to Sydney TAFE for a Global Skills Roundtable and student consultation with the Minister. We also did a bit of a tour of the TAFE afterwards and saw the floristry students and visual merchandising areas.

Was feeling and looking a bit disheveled by the time I got home.

2015-07-28 16.35.39Fortunately, a negroni will help with that.

2015-07-28 17.49.47Next day was an attempt to wear actual work-appropriate shoes with the ankle compression bandage.

2015-07-29 12.53.22Was excited to receive my Pozible delivery of Poor Tom’s Gin. Because I didn’t have enough gin in the house already…

2015-07-29 18.34.20More exciting stockings with fat ankle.

2015-07-30 08.37.00Zachary was doing some cooking with some expert assistance from Sebastian. Together they cooked up some cupcakes for Zac to take to school to share with his class.

Meanwhile, I went to a VDL Quiz Night.

Friday I was back in sneakers with my new elaborate ankle brace. Let me assure you, the ankle hasn’t really been very painful and I have been walking a lot.

2015-07-31 11.34.29It was derby shirt Friday so I was supporting my (second) favourite men’s team.

2015-07-31 15.22.56Friday night we finally had Zachary’s delayed birthday party (we wanted to avoid school holidays, then needed enough lead in time for invites etc). Like Sebastian, he chose a Zone 3 birthday. I got to play when they were one short of three even teams, much to my delight. We started with a Girl Power! team which one of them named the Rainbow Farting Fluffy Unicorn Team.  I could live with that. Anyway there was shooting and pizza and a variety of fun times. Afterwards, James and I escaped to a more civilised birthday celebration – dinner at the Chairman and Yip to celebrate Andrew Vance’s birthday.

Saturday I made tomato and lentil soup for lunch.

2015-08-01 12.42.48It was then off to skating for the boys. I miraculously didn’t have work I needed to do, so got to enjoy my book.

2015-08-01 14.37.53The afternoon involved a complex set of maneouvres post-derby as we had to drop Zac at the theatre, Jude at a friend’s for a sleepover and eat before going to see Zac’s performance. Sebastian and I ended up eating dinner at Spicy Ginger.

2015-08-01 17.50.53We then went and saw Zac in his on-stage performance debut with the Turner Trebles and a number of other choirs at the Street Theatre.

2015-08-01 20.18.55Sunday morning was cold and wet and I was taking Sebastian to hockey. Fortunately it was somewhere I could sit and watch under cover.

Sebastian made his second batch of ice cream – vanilla this time.

2015-08-02 11.05.57And Jude showed some drawing prowess.
