It was a beautifully sunny day (Saturday), and we had a huge day before us. Melbourne cbd roads were crazy, road blocks, road works, alternate routes, diversions, trams, cars on tramlines, pedestrians being pedestrians.
In the middle of Lonsdale St, there seemed to be a funfair (hence the maddening road blocks/closures). Food stalls were in abundance, and so were rides and fun-fair games.
Walking hand-in-hand, I passed by a fantasy/sci-fi bookstore which I have never seemed to bother with.. and ‘lo and behold.. the prices there are cheaper than other giant bookshops. Shame on you! Continued hand-in-hand to the comic bookstore (this is to get ready for our Supanova weekend)… The Boy happily found a stash of things he wanted and we went on our way.
Sunlight was blinding as we approached Fed Square. Some Thai festival/celebration/event was going on. Exciting!
On to Chapel Street for more comics and then dinner with the relatives. BBQ was delish as usual.
A contented weekend supplied with endless Terry Goodkind books (how dare you let these people ruin your story on TV. How could you?) and Heroes…it can only get better!!!
This week – continue said plan with the marathon of books and Heroes…
