And I can hardly wait. I’ve been celebrating early and getting out and about while Canberra is at its best, but sadly not on my bike :-/ everything is running smoothly with those two, just OH and I have been enjoying the AC in the car. And, for this week, I’m off the bike due to a gym induced injury (and out of the gym so it’s a very sad archetypicalone all round).
I really loathe driving to work. Especially since we have big cars. As we commute by bike, it makes sense to have a workhorse style vehicle, as it doesn’t get used regularly except to carry stuff too big for a bike. It makes me feel incredibly lonely to be all alone, in my massive 5 seater car, crawling through peak hour traffic, watching my fuel consumption rise and rise…..
But yes. If I rest my shoulder until it heals, the sooner I will be riding again. And going to the gym. Damn I miss that.
But anywho, as mentioned earlier, OH and I have been enjoying Canberra’s warmer weather. Last Friday night we had bbq dinner at Lonsdale St Roasters BYO&BBQ nights, and I had fried chicken I could live off forever. It was so good I didn’t even ask for a bite of OH’s burger (always curious as to what I may have missed out on lol). Then we visited Dessert Castle, which I wasnt overly impressed with. I did make a nice Reece’s Pieces flavoured Frozen yogurt though, but the Salted Caramel Opera Cake had no hint of caramel at all.
Saturday we ventured down to the deep dark southside to visit Smoque, which has opened their second restaurant in the foyer of Abode Apartments in Woden. Oooohhhhh I was so tempted to get the fried chicken and waffles, but went for the pulled pork instead. Delicious.
Edit: forgot about this – on the way home we actually went to Parliment House for the (my) first time. It’s surprisingly beautiful inside – sort of 80’s post modern with lots of light and white and golden polished wood. We went up on the roof, had a look at the rooms, viewed the Magna Carte exhibit, and exited via the surprisingly good coffee shop.

This flag looks as big as a bus!
Sunday was quiet, mainly because the weather turned and it was raining. So off to the gym to injure myself I went lol.
I miss my bike. Soon my pretty.
(Sorry this is so disjointed, i considered splitting into 2 posts since I have been writing it since Monday, but meh.)
