Saturday routine

Nathan works on Saturdays. We (i.e. Nathan, Truffles and I) all pile into the car in the morning to go with him to work.

The dog and I then walk home together. It's good exercise. We always go pass the South Melbourne markets and I usually end up getting some flowers (Truffles usually gets a dog treat from the florist). We are both happy.

The past few weeks, I've also taken to catching the tram out to Victoria Street so I can have Vietnamese noodle soup for lunch. Last week I had pho. This week I had bun bo hue.

After my big meal, I decided to walk down to Bridge Road. I visited a commercial gallery that was having an exhibition of 'sharp edge abstraction'. It was food for the soul. Stunning.

Back home, I pottered around the apartment for a few hours and then it was time for the dog and I to walk back to Nathan's work. The dog insists on sniffing every tree along the way so it takes us a while but I don't mind. We tend to get to Nathan's office early and wait for him to clock off. We then pile back in the car and drive home together.

That's my Saturday routine. And I love it.

Routines can be very pleasant and I like the simpleness of yours.

Simplicity can be a wonderful thing.

Nothing wrong with routines except if you are stuck in one you want to stop. I used to buy two massive lamingtons every Saturday from a cake shop in Woollahra when I moved to Edgecliff twenty eight years ago. I knew it wasn't a healthy thing to do but I continued doing it anyway. Fate intervened. The cake shop closed down a few years later. No more Saturday lamingtons. Well...not every Saturday anymore.
