The week that was…week 17: a packed week

april 001 april 002Autumn in Canberra is a beautiful time, but I didn’t get much of a chance to appreciate it  this week (apart from our day trip to Tidbinbilla)  as it was a bit hectic.

Work was totally crazy as I tried to get everything done in three days so I could have Friday off, and be ready to head to Indonesia on Monday. This was part of Krystal’s effort to give me time to clear things in the office.

I might speak in more detail of that separately. But summary – the food was great and it was cheaper than expected. And we ate the entire menu. Literally. After dinner, cocktails at Knightsbridge.

Cockatoos on the roof next door!

Sunday the boys went to Jackie’s and we were off to Groovin the Moo. It was a lovely afternoon for it and Regurgitator and They Might Be Giants (who we were particularly there to see) did not disappoint. James and I did bail a bit early though – I had a 7.30am flight to catch the next day.
