It was a very good week end. Steady rain fell from Friday until yesterday providing a full month’s worth of rain in less than 48 hours, which was great due to the depleting reserves of water in the storage dams. I completed some work I commenced last week on a course I will be facilitating and my daughter and I went out for dinner last night.
It was lovely for the two of us to go out together without the entourage of friends (although we love them dearly)that usually accompany us when we go out , or come to the house for large gatherings of family and friends. I thinks it’s great that family and friends enjoy being around me and my home but there are times when it is just nice to spend some time alone with immediate family! I know they will understand what I am saying.
I left here quite late in the afternoon to spend some time with Prue at her home and chatted with her and her housemates for a while before we left for dinner. When we set out, we were still undecided about where we wanted to go and ended up going to a favourite Vietnamese restaurant in an neighbouring suburb, which is always busy and patronised mainly by local Vietnamese. Authentic food is served and is in no way Anglosised, the way it often is at some establishments to accommodate the tastes of Westerners. LOL. Fortunately, when we arrived the restaurant was only at 75% capacity but within a few minutes there were several groups waiting outside for a table. It’s the type of restaurant that has a buzz about it and as the night goes on the buzz gets louder. Certainly not the type of place you would go for an intimate dinner for two!The service is quick, polite and the food is unbelievable.
We selected a few different courses and took our time enjoying each while catching up and sharing a few laughs. Of course we ate far too much and admitted to each other that we really didn’t need that last course which tipped us over the edge Ha ha. It was a lovely evening spent with my beautiful daughter. What more could a mother want? 🙂
Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment or send emails over the week end. I enjoy receiving each and every one!
