Today was a busy day. Got up fed the herd breakfast then followed the school bus with my car and Miss 3yr old to the Melbourne Acquarium. Was a wonderful time I have to say. We got to touch and feel the coral and some star fishes and a Port Jackson Shark Egg. Murray the cod was ace too, he followed the guides hand from one end of the exhibit to the other..chasing his hand away rather that wanting to eat it! The jelly fish were my favourite of all in the whole exhibit. There were some that went fluorescent in the light they have put in the exhibit. Got to ask questions to a bloke in scuba gear who was in the main tank. He answered every question realy well..including the one when a grade 1 child asked...do sharks ever attack you when you are in the tank? He said they do, they attack the scuba dive tank and your head if theyre hungry so they put on helmets from now on when they are in to clean or maintain or check out the fishes.
I have made Nick an outfit for tomorrow too. He has to go to school and be in a parade as his favourite sea animal, so the outfit is that of The Great White Shark!!! I don't think I did too bad with the outfit realy, but I could have done better if I had a sewing machine!!! And if Nick chose to be a jelly fish or a deep sea squid it would have been easier for me aswell.
I took Mia on a tram or two and we went out to see the city of Melbourne. She loved the tram that was covered in deco of the fav drink fo the moment..zero coke. We looked at motorbikes on Elizabeth Street, Mia liked the black Harley Davidson she spotted there..nice taste I have to say!
I took her into my work to visit a nice patient of mine, I gave her my shampoo and conditioner that I used when I lost all my hair last year after a period of illness (termed Telogen Effluvian). She was very greatful and I also bought her a nice beanie to keep her feeling great. She loved seeing my Mia and Mia entertained her for the duration of our visit, I am proud she did not play up at all.
So now I am way past the time I shoulda hit the sack..phew..it all begins tomorrow in the morning again :)
Oh yeah...in addition to this post...I was walking past the Catholic Bookshop in town and to my amazement, they were selling and had a massive display..you guessed it.."The DaVinic Code" Book and other things to do with the movie and said title. I guess they complain like hell about the novel and the flick but don't mind taking the proceeds that the sale of it will bring into their already phenomenal bank account...Amen!
