My idea of a glorious Sydney Saturday afternoon

In about me, animals, food, great photos, Sydney, weather on June 22, 2013 at 2:29 pm

Waking up next to a warm cat. Pouring with rain, cold, wandering up and down King Street. Hot dark Italian chocolate at Max Brenner’s. Dumpling noodle soup at Dumpling King, a wet walk home from the bus stop. And now an afternoon in front of the football and a box set of The Sopranos.

Add a packet of Mint Slice and hopefully some lovely company a bit later, and I am in weekend heaven.

All I need now is someone to do my housework. Anyone? Anyone?

Impatient for winter

So when does it start getting cold in Sydney?

Don’t get me wrong, this mild autumn stuff is lovely, but I want me some cold, people!!

I’m still wearing the clothes I was wearing in January, so come on, I want me some chilly.

Just a tad damp here in the Emerald City

All very pretty but it’s nowhere near the hammering Queensland’s been copping. Harden up Sydney.

Grey old day

I know just how you feel P-Siddy

Why do we try and play Test cricket in Brisbane in November and December?

I’d be pretty shat off if I could only get to the Gabba today and I’d shelled out a small mortgage for tickets only for it to rain. Quelle surprise!

I’m already pretty shat off and I’m sitting on the couch at home, watching a bloody awful Gary Cooper movie (Springfield Rifle, 1952 — Major Lex Kearny becomes the North’s first counterespionage agent as he tries to discover who’s behind the theft of Union cavalry horses in Colorado during the Civil War) that Nine has plonked on while the rain comes down in Brisbane.

You would think, wouldn’t you, that Nine, with all its experience broadcasting cricket over the decades, would have thought to themselves: ‘Hmmm, November in Brisbane — we’d better have a decent Plan B for the three days of the Test it’s going to rain’.

Maybe they did and Springfield Rifle was the Plan B they came up with. Scary.

Meanwhile, I have a chest infection. It’s miserable. I am miserable. But tomorrow it will be a little better, and a little bit better again on Monday.

And who knows? By Tuesday we may even get some cricket.

Kiwis … tch … soft
