I’ve been getting seriously good use out of my pensioner Opal card lately. $2.50 to travel all day on Newcastle and Sydney trains, buses, ferries and light rail, that’s awesome! And yes, you may be jealous, but I have it because they reckon I can only work 15 hours a week when I DO get a job, and so they give me some perks like cheaper meds to keep me less crazy, and cheap travel so I can apply for jobs and be able to jump on a train to meet awesome people and eat delicious food and consume great wine in the blink of an eye.

So, this vroom of a classic blue Ford Falcon belongs to Jason Hodges, who bought it 21 years ago for $3k, but claims it is worth $30k now.

I’m also perfecting my “snoozing on the train” technique. It’s helped when I wear a beanie, so I can rest my head on the window, and my cardi of choice is more of a poncho / knitted wrap. So I curl up, and tend to miss half the trip. It’s wonderful.

Totally travel ready.

So, one of the things I’ve got to with my awesomeness ticket, is off to The Greens, which is right next to North Sydney Oval. I went there to be fed, and to be informed about all the awesome stuff at the Better Homes and Gardens “Live” weekend expos that are happening in Perth in October and Sydney in November.

An amazing lunch, though I think “dill” was the herb of choice

I want to live a gourmet life. Without the effort ;)

How much better is Gourmet Farmer than, say, the boring recipes on Better Homes and Gardens, or kitchen disasters on the reality shows? It DOES make me want to live on a little farm, at least, like the city slicker I am, only on weekends, and have people tend the animals, and harvest the veges for me, ready for me to cook em.

One day. When I’m rich ;) Cos I’m realistic like that.
