Inflatables, Recipe, Birthday Gift.

Friday it was a rturtle_thumbubber duck, now we have a giant turtle in Sidney harbour. Last week, a 49-foot-long inflatable turtle cruised past Sydney's famed Opera House in celebration of a new underwater art exhibit at the city's aquarium. The floating sculpture will reside in the harbour until mid-September. I must say I would like to see that exhibit. I would like to see the turtle too.

Having posted a steak recipe on Saturday which we were planning to have for dinner, I developed a problem with my mouth so I have had to postpone cooking this for a while because I couldn’t have eaten it. Hopefully, next weekend.  Need to see the dentist I guess.

I got an early birthday gift this week. My favourite Chinese restaurant sent me a coupon for a free meal, so long as I brought three friends. So we have a couple who enjoy going there as much as I do and they are prepared to come with us. I had the option of going on the day, up to three days before or three days after. As my birthday is a Sunday this year, I certainly didn’t want to go then, we rarely go out at the weekends as there are usually too many people.

I’m sorry, but I am feeling so very sad at the moment because of the loss of our blogging friend Tina that I really am not in the mood to go recipe hunting. My apologies.

Have a great day

  3. Floating sculptures WOULD be a fun exhibit to see. :-) No worries, Jo, you've given me a cookbook of recipes.

    It sad to lose people you care about regardless of whether they are cyber friends or real-time friends. Isn't it amazing how close you can be to someone you may have never met? Yet the impact of their personality and caring heart shines through regardless.
