Tuesday saw me heading off to the city to meet up with Jean, a fellow blogger...we met for lunch at Jimmy's on the Mall. We both ordered the lunchtime steak meal...
It certainly looks a lot on the plate doesn't it?
Jean and I had a lovely catch up over coffee and then our meal...then we said our goodbyes and I thought I would go for a wander as the city centre is quite a novelty for me these days...
So it was a short walk up to the Myer Centre. On Monday night my brother and my niece and I had been reminiscing about this Myer Centre which was opened in 1988. We recalled the roller coaster and theme park which used to be on the upper level...but it's long gone now. The ceiling is rather beautiful so I took a photo...and in my mind I could see that roller coaster up there as well as the Pirate Ship ride.
Wednesday I was out and about again too...a friend had a fundraiser World's Largest Morning Tea so that happened in the morning...
There were lots of raffles at the morning tea and my name was drawn 3 times! But I said 2 prizes were more that enough! Lol. So I took a parcel of kitchen odds and ends from a local gift shop and a complimentary High tea for one...I really wanted the toiletries' prizes so I could donate the items to K4BN...naughty aren't I having a whinge?!! Lol
Then it was lunch with former work colleagues of DH at a local pub, Alderley Arms.
My lunch was delicious!
Thursday was yet another catch up with friends. This time at that lovely cafe at Samford...the Flying Nun. (It's in an old church, hence the name)
Outside the cafe looking up Station St, towards Main St.
'Friends by marriage', that's how I describe these 2 friends...they have been friends of DH's since they were all teenagers in the same youth club...so when I met DH in 2002, it wasn't long before he introduced me to these friends of his...and they became friends of both DH and I!
My lunch with its rosy hue from the light shining through a red umbrella...it was an avocado and grilled haloumi sandwich with grilled chicken as an extra...delish!
