Where is Wally?

I'm on leave this week. Since APEC weekend, during the whole Great Wall of Sydney event with the rabid cops, the Chaser guys breaching security, Pavarotti passing away (RIP big guy), Britney bombing at the VMAs, Li Lo going back to court and an entertaining visit from the dad-in-law passing through on the way home from Paris.

Over the past few days I have had emails and fb messages asking where I've been and what I'm up to. I truly wish I could tell you it's been the stuff of the great novels but unfortunately it has just been blog-worthy.

On the weekend, Giles and I explored Surry Hills. We mostly went in the opposite direction to the water canons so we ended up near the charming terraces and old schools. This is one of the schools we passed that once separated boys and girls.

Then there was Bourke Street Bakery Cafe which Giles discovered on one of his Wednesdays. They make delish chocolate croissants and Italian hot chocolate. I highly recommend it but be prepared to line up because it is popular on Saturdays.

Tristram + Chiara took G + I out to a fabulous night of cocktails and dinner at Lo Studio. It was kinda like a belated birthday but relatively early for Tristram :)

More pressies for me

It's been quiet around here. I'm putting a lot of time in to writing some stuff in Ruby on Rails. Am using Ruby in Steel but if anyone can recommend an IDE on Windows that they like then please do let me know. Will write more once the new lang and I get acquainted.

I'll leave you now with something I found on the coffee table. It's the remains of some popcorn... the unpopped kernels. The pattern is not random. It is the sign that I live with an obsessive compulsive :o)
A random pattern... I think not
