Long Weekend – Long Week

14 06 2009

As you know, I love a long weekend.

But the problem with a long weekend is that, by comparison, even a four-day week can seem endless. We have been trying to relax a bit this weekend to compensate for what was a fairly frustrating work week.

Last weekend was a cracker. We went up to Forster with my family and played a bit of golf, did a lot of reading and spent plenty of time sleeping.

We went for a drive north to a little town called Wingham. We checked out the thousands of grey-headed flying foxes they have living there. At the Anglican Op shop I managed to pick up six second-hand books for under five bucks! Some great titles and authors in there too: The Crucible, Tale of Two Cities, Joseph Conrad, GK Chesterton. What a bargain!

Ready for another 3-day weekend. Next one’s not til October… 😦

I still haven’t been – outrageous!
I did plan to go on the way to Forster one day – but it’s like half way.
Maybe just worth making a day trip from Sydney.
Dark Knight sounds tasty.
