We have discussed this a few times. Kirsten thinks we are a suburb of Melbourne. I think we are a country town.

Looking at the various different definitions, the whole of the Yarra ranges is part of metropolitan Melbourne. So much for the senselessness of using LGAs to define the place. . . . → Read More: Is Monbulk part of Melbourne

Blood Moon

I think I first heard of it on twitter. After looking at the excellent Wikipedia page on the topic, it was clear we would see the second half. The moon was scheduled to rise just on sunset.

For years we have been invited to go to the show. But we have always had some reason why we could not make it. This was our first visit.

Relo fixes

20140407-064905.jpg

A bit of a repeat of a recent dream.

I am driving the relo. It is clearly in need of repair. Strangely it us booked into the same place on a slight hill that it was in the previous dream. The location is on a semi industrial, but rural road that . . . → Read More: Dream

Selby Festival

Over the last few years we have always intended to go to the Selby Festival, but we have had other engagements. This was my first year at the festival.

Kirsten & I waked down into town to do some shopping. On the way back we stopped off at the quilt festival as Sara was supposed to have a stall there. But it seems we were there too late and she had left.

But we did bump into Phil. He was . . . → Read More: Quilt festival and Landcare AGM.
