After a little running around the house we headed over to pick up a hire car. Nana Margie even decided she would take her life in her own hands and let me drive for the rest of the day. She was fine…perhaps a few more grey hairs, but who’s counting?
We ended up heading down to freo before lunchtime, to have a hunt around the E-Shed Markets. Not a lot to see, but there is a wonderful stall down there with loads of handcarved items, created in WA from local woods. I found a few things that would look beaut in the Strewth house as well as some other undisclosed friends homes.
Freo is a beautiful place…very relaxing to walk around. Lots of great places to grab a cuppa and hands down (in this gals humble opinion) the best fish n chips in the world.

Sir Henry agrees – paws down.
A nice warm 102° F in Perth today…..completely the opposite of what the family in DC is experiencing at the moment – i’m kind of curious what kind of state of shock my body will go into when i get home to the cooooold
It’s Sunday here in the future and as most shops and things are still closed on a Sunday, the parents and I decided to take a day off from family-ing and touristy-ing and just stay at home and annoy Mr Henry. Mission fairly accomplished i would say
The mama and i did head into Freo yesterday to have a wander through the markets and to pop back into Didgeridoo Breath. Not much new around and is it just me or are the Freo markets getting smaller and smaller every year? So not much success with my list of stuff to take back home….but i did manage to find one bargain…
Ignore the face and the hair…it’s bloody hot here!
Money well spent i think…well i guess considering that Margie bought it for me, it was a definite bargain
Tomorrow some of my cousins are coming over to the house and then at some point next week the parents and i are going to do a tour of the Fremantle Prison which should be a blast! Also left on the list is more family time and a day in the city on Thursday. I think next time i come home, i’m going to have to do so for a hell of a lot longer…two and a bit weeks is never enough. But the next time i come home, i will also have a lot more baggage with me…is it possible that i could fit the wee-b in overhead storage?
I love you wee-b….just joking about the overhead storage, you can totally fit under my chair.
