|Ian and I were left to our own devices today as everyone had headed off to work. Ian had a couple of trips into Bunnings so that he could undertake a couple of minor repairs to the van whilst I finished reading a book I had started on Saturday. After lunch, I drove to Fountain Gate (a huge Westfield shopping centre not far from Pakenham) and bought a few bits and pieces that I had on my shopping list, such as new sunglasses and yet another pair of thongs! After doing my best to get lost in Fountain Gate, I headed home to prepare tea (I had promised that it was my turn to cook) and have a swim in Geoff’s pool given it was a pretty hot day. This was the first time I had had a swim since snorkelling in the lagoon at the Blowholes near Carnarvon, and so, my first swim for the summer. It was very refreshing and enjoyable. I cooked sweet and sour pork on the BBQ, then, after tea, the cool change blew in and we all went our separate ways again for the remainder of the evening.
