Extended weekend

Took a couple of days off work to recharge the batteries (and to use up some of my annual leave).

The city on a weekday is a very different beast. I walk behind men in dark suits, past police officers being trained to direct traffic. I check out a few book shops at lunch time, stroll through the Carlton Gardens in the afternoon, and go for a wander up and down Brunswick Street. Relaxing.

Yep. That sounds like the year I've just had. I miss it.

When I worked in town I used to be annoyed by retired people who clogged the city streets at lunchtime when I was in a hurry to get things done.

Now I am retired and when occasionally I am in town I am annoyed by workers clogging the city streets and wonder why they are not in their offices where they belong.

Human nature, I suppose.
