Last Weekend of Winter

The MOTH was away in Perth all week so we made a point of spending lots of weekend time together.

On Friday evening, it was a glass of wine followed by a walk for the dogs followed by a steak with salad for dinner.

On Saturday, after another walk with the dogs, we set out for a drive. We ended up at Sirromet Winery at Mt Cotton. We had a late lunch at Lurleen's. I recommend it to anyone. The food was good & the service excellent.

Next, we headed home. We didn't get far. We dropped into Carindale shopping centre to go to the cinema. We saw Taken. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

But that wasn't all for our Saturday, folks. On the way home we were just crossing the Captain Cook bridge heading back to our part of Brisbane when the River Fire fireworks started. It was a fitting finish to a wonderful day. Congratulations to the organisers. It was a wonderful spectacle.

Sunday was just as good but in different ways. After a couple hours of housework, we headed over to Boondall, up to Burpengarry and then over to Woody Point for lunch. It was a round about trip, but we in the process of collecting a car-load of friends. We spent the afternoon on the waterfront, sipping Pims and picking at a smorgasbord lunch.

To finish the weekend off: an episode of Dr Who.

Life is simple but fun. Happy birthday Lisa and Linda!

Hi hun - I miss Carindale shopping centre... We used to live on Stanley Road Carina in 2004-2006.

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend.
