    Long Weekend

    Though many people like to go away for long weekends, I’m far more inclined to be a home-body. It’s quiet and relaxed.

    Last night I had a late night meal at The Tropicana with Colin and Andrew. As we sat on the footpath watching “the young folk” head off to Kings Cross in their shorts and thongs (yes, thongs), I tucked into a tasty chicken rissole dish with a bolognese sauce, which was excellent.… Read the rest “Long Weekend”
