Desperate & Dateless

The name of a cabaret show with Ginger and Tonic, a group of four women singing about being desperate and dateless. Eversley had given us a free voucher for the Fringe Festival and we decided on this show, based on ease of access (car to Vic Park Station, then walk over the bridge to the Fringe Festival area near the Art Gallery), and price, $50 for two tickets. It was a full house and they were musically excellent and very funny. It was a Monday night, so a bit quieter than the weekend. The featured photo is of a small carousel in the square near the State Library.

In the morning yesterday we went for a swim at my favourite place, the Riverton Leisureplex, with a 50m indoor heated pool. I didn’t have quite as much energy as two weeks ago, but managed my starter set of 6 laps.

We are having a hot spell again, with today getting up to nearly 40. Yesterday was about 34 degrees, with a cool start to the day. I did some shopping and also did an online order that was delivered this morning. Despite that, Stephen and I did a little more shopping today for forgotten things. I also managed to get 6 tins of milk formula to send to Della, probably Thursday morning.

Stephen went to his autobiography group yesterday and to a family history group at the library today. He is going to WASO choir tonight. A little worrying that he may be doing too much, but we are both feeling frustrated that after coming home early from our trip we still don’t know precisely what is wrong. Stephen had tests done last week on Tuesday, but we don’t know the results. His neurologist said she might phone him regarding an earlier appointment and I wish she would as the waiting is very difficult.

I am thinking of having another swim, this time at the local pool in East Vic Park. As it will be after sunset when I get there I can use the outdoor 50m pool.
