It’s that time of the year when, for me at least, work and holidays blend together. Though officially not working on the public holidays, there are still work things I need to do. And on the days when I am officially at work, I try to balance out the time I’ve worked on the public holidays by doing some other more personal things.
Yesterday, wandering home I heard some jazz music playing at the Lismore Bowling Club. The sounds wafting out from the club were a lovely reminder of the times earlier in the year when I would head over to the club for their Sunday afternoon sessions.
But to my discovery, I’d wandered into a memorial for someone called Doreen. I can only assume she was a fan of the jazz afternoons too. As I looked around I noticed there were some other jazz aficionados there too, and as the music came to an end, I didn’t feel so bad about having “crashed” a wake.
And then today, I went for a wander around the laneway art of the centre of Lismore. Earlier this year I filmed a few short videos. As there’s been some additional art added to the laneways since I was here earlier this year, I shot another video.
In other news, I learned in the last few days the planned service station development next door to Pat and Jack’s place has been put “on hold”.
