Damn chilly in Adelaide today, winter really is here, even with the gas heater on I am having trouble staying warm.
After a lazy morning, we got up at 10.00, this morning we tried out our new Nutri Bullet for the first time. We decided to start with the first recipe and work our way through, this morning was kale, pineapple, pear , apple and banana, an interesting mix, pretty green. Iw ouldn’t say I disliked it, but I wouldn’t say I liked it either, the texture was interesting. We are not going to give up on it though as it did fill us up, tomorrow’s concoction is berries.
Breakfast finished it was off to buy a birthday present for 7-year-old Jayden, Kane told me he wanted a real cricket set, nothing plastic. We searched the length and breadth of the Elizabeth Shopping Centre but no cricket set to be found, so we continued on our way to Sportspower, again nothing. In desperation I decided we would buy everything separately, Jayden would not care as long as the end product was what he wanted. The guy that served us said he would check out the back as there were no wickets on display and to my pleasant surprise he happened to find a lonely cricket set that had been forgotten about, I was happy, I had what Jayden wanted.
Next stop was to pick up Jade as we have not seen her for a while and I thought it would be nice if we picked her up so she could see her cousin for his birthday. Jade is gorgeous, she chatted all the way and by the time we arrived at Kane’s Jade had us up to date with all the goings on in her life.
To my disappointment Jayden did not seem all that excited about his cricket set, but I suppose a cricket set cannot really compete with the present he got from his parents, an X-box. We stayed at Kane’s for an hour or so and then headed home, we did not see the kids once, the entire visit they played on the X-box. It is not often I don’t get a cuddle but today was one of those days.
Kane on the other hand is very excited as he picked up his new car yesterday. Don’t ask me what it is, it is a 4 wheel drive of some description, all I know is that my son is very, very happy, and that is all that matters, he works hard and he deserves it.
I have just watched Port Power get beaten by the Sydney Swans in the AFL, and Brian is having a siesta. It is nearly time to wake him up as we are out for dinner tonight. Vietnamese cuisine with friends from my days at Wattyl.
