This morning I sat there braiding Sarah's hair before school and watching some NEWS on the telly. First story was about a storm whooping it up overseas. second story was...you guessed it..abour LARA bloody BINGLE! So over that one! Next story was more important and it was about the cost of electricity to householders. Priority stories huh!
Yesterday I worked a morning shift. When I finished I jumped on a tram from the corner of Grattan Street and Royal Parade. Took the tram down along Elizabeth Street to meet hubby who was working in the CBD. Alighted just after the Bourke Street Mall. Walked along with loads of aimless people. Aimless, yeah, I mean, they walked any which way they wanted to. Some on mobile phones talking loudly as if we would care to listen. Walking past an liquor shop there were two guys holding open cans in their hands and they were approaching passers by and asking for money. They kicked a guy who looked like a Swedish backpacker, in the back of his legs. He did not fall..but he almost did. It was scary..this was at 3pm, broad daylight. What feral people are out there.
It was such a gorgeous afternoon. I was so glad that hubby and I got home by 4pm and could spend the day, safely, in our own yard with our kids. Even now, the Sun is shining and the World seems good, at least in my own abode. What sayeth youse?
