I also had a very enjoyable day with various friends. I met Connie at a quilt show in Nunawading (you can see photos here) and we spent a happy couple of hours together admiring quilts and having a scone with jam and cream while we chatted.
From there, I drove to the iconic Box Hill Town Hall which was formerly the administration building for the former Box Hill City council, but after the state government changed the shires and councils, the new Whitehorse Council now has its offices elsewhere, and this building is used as a community hub with art galleries etc. I was there today to see an exhibition of Chinese Brush Painting by artist and teacher Echo Wu. I took some photos, although I probably shouldn't have, but there were no signs up to probibit photography.
From the Town Hall, I drove a few streets down to visit Sharon, and return some books I'd borrowed from her. I stayed for an hour or so, enjoyed a cup of tea and cake, and catching up with her news.
Then I went to Balwyn to drop something in to another friend. Val had been to our place the previous day and left something behind, so I returned it to her seeing I was on the road all day!
Finally headed off home intending to stop off in Eltham and buy a chicken for tea. But I got sidetracked at the Oxfam book fair....It was open from 8 am to 6 pm, and by the time I called in, they were getting ready to close. But I managed to find 4 books for $2 each, so that wasn't too much damage. Got my chicken after that and was so relieved to pull into our driveway, knowing I wouldn't have to go out again!
