To Bowral

Bowral Station sign

Went on a bit of an adventure (or epic journey) on Monday to go to Bowral for a job interview.

Train Ticket Bowral
ZOMG check it out, it’s a paper ticket!

Reasoning with myself that the $8.60 in train fare was about half of what the TOLL ROADS would cost me to get there, let alone petrol and having to stay awake for the journey, I got to Fassifern before 6am for the three trains there and three trains back.

Trainlink NSW purple train carriages to Newcastle

Settled in for a nap on the first leg, hoping all my connections would line up – which they did! Including the revelation that “Panania” is a place, and that people get excited to be getting on diesel trains, especially oldies on their excursion tickets who ignore the “quiet carriage” signage.

The interview was a couple of kilometres walk from the station, but as you see my feet were prepared (with heels to slip into on arrival!)

Daffodils Bowral

Springtime has certainly hit! With the gardens and wildflowers (weeds! and wanderers!) blooming

I got a tad pink from the sun, but it was lovely to be out :)

I had a latish lunch at Janecks Cafe and Bar

Courgette and Haloumi fritters (all day breakfast menu – $17) and a lovely local Riesling!

All fuel for the epic journey home…

What made me smile and instagram last month…


The sky on Monday


Colourful hairbands


Avocado


The existence of Gluten Free Weetbix. Obviously not Wheat :p I’m yet to try them but I’ve been told that they don’t sog up as quickly ass regular weetbix and/but are good!


Wonderful Pistachios. Unsalted were the ones for me – less moreish that way! Mixed reception in this house to the sweet chili…. the traditional salted ones were as good as ever. (gifted)


My birthday!


Hello Kitty bday gifts!

What made your July smiley?

Catching up with some girls from highschool for an update, one brought me some gorgeous flowers, with a Star of David fashioned out of bamboo and stuck inside by the florist. Are these for Hannukah?

I’ve just spent a couple of days in psych care at the hospital.

Yeah, I was a bit of a risk.

Putting things in place etc.

AND I GOT FOOD PHOTOS FOR YOU:

Breakfast:

Yeah, I ate gluten this few days. I lived.

And check out all the plastic cutlery and crockery. Yep, no sharps in PECC. (the flowers are also in a ‘vase’ fashioned from an isowipes container)

Plans from here?

Rest

Take care of myself.

More therapy.

Adjust meds.

Oh and figure out where I want to live. Yeah, Rish and I kinda ‘separated’, too.

Just short of 15 years.

To see if that helps.

*sigh*

Careful what you wish for.

Change.

I can do this.

The bright red flower or its wilted friend?

I see the bright flower. With a smiling whisper of “ooh! What’s next?”  .

See the colour :)

I read a lot of blogs.

Some are gorgeously superficial. Pretty, sparkly nail polish, or cupcakes that, while I can’t eat them, look awesome.

Others are deep.

Discussion of emotions, physical and mental pain.

And while I love those people.

I just sometimes can’t read that stuff.

For my own sake.

So I step back. And stick with the pretty flowers for a while.
