I am looking to have a pair of boots resoled and heeled. Expensive boots (not fashion, not high heeled, just boots) and I would like to find a decent quality bootmaker.
I have used some of the franchise type on other boots and found them expensive and lacking in quality to say the very least (aka: [...]
Normally my morning tea of choice for catching up with friends is at the Hyatt but shock – horror – this is no more! The Hyatt now only offers afternoon tea with 2 sessions (starting at 11am) at a large-ish price……
Problem is I need a 10am start and I would rather not pay $52 per person!
This morning. Hot Cross Buns at Coles Belconnen.
Wonder if I could smuggles those into the Hoyts cinema?
Had the unfortunate pleasure of being approached by a bourbon and coke carrying drunk member of the panhandling community this afternoon in Garema Place looking for cash.
When I declined with a sorry no and continued walking he started throwing abuse in a LOUD voice (along the lines of ‘you f*&*&*g b%$#h c!@t etc). He [...]
Thought you might like this picture for the parking hall of fame, taken yesterday afternoon (30/3/2012) at Canberra Hospital.
I found it interesting that parking inspectors were ticketing cars parked in permit zones but this offence was ticket free!!
[Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it to [...]
We have come home yesterday afternoon to a load of ground up concrete (called road bases I think?) on our driveway.
Haven’t bought a load of road base, do not need a load of road base so we are not sure what do do next.
We live in the Evatt area.
Anyone expecting a delivery that didn’t make [...]
I was sent this email this morning…..thought it wise to share with fellow rioters:
My husband works for Harden Shire Council and was advised by the RTA that a very large convoy of trucks will be converging on Canberra on Monday 22 August for a blockade. He suggested I might pass this information on to you.
I would like to point out some of the fashion crimes that are being committed every day in Canberra. I am aware to all Rioters are well dressed, fashion forward (or at least age appropritae) but what is going on with the rest of the population?
– Leggings/jeggings/tights worn as an item of clothing, without [...]
Interesting to see the ‘Mully’ mentioned once again in our newspapers and on our news services. I had forgotten about his (lack of) greatness and the mayhem, pain, sadness he caused.
How are other Rioters feeling as we approach the anniversary of his death?
Bet he is pissed he didn’t get a memorial in Woden interchange with [...]
I have been wondering how the Park and Ride carparks were going to be ‘managed’ with the advent of MyWay. Up till now you could buy your (4) tickets on line apply for and get a Park and Ride voucher for your nominated carpark.
This worked well for the people who worked at say, Woden but [...]
I regularly receive emails from various organisations who do the surveys for various business and organisations seeking ’public’ opinion on them, their product, our buying habits or whatever.
Last nights was interesting – seeking people who live in the ACT who voted in the last election, seeking views on who they voted for at the Federal election last [...]
Yesterday afternoon about 3.30pm heading from Woden up Yarra Glen towards the city when a Action bus (who shall remain nameless, OK a 315) came thru the roundabout and changed lane to go into the bus lane.
Situation normal so far.
I was travelling at 80km/h on cruise control and the bus passed me at a very reasonable [...]
DEEWR have started giving VRs to staff in the ACT. Maybe they are trying to reduce the numbers so they can all fit ino that lovely new building in Marcus Clark Street?
On a more serious note as always the good people; the workers, the leaders, are the ones who are taking the opportunity - but the [...]
Having reached a milestone age I have decided to buy something pretty and sparkly as Mr Jess probably won’t.
I have a problem with all the big chain jewelry stores…..I would prefer to buy something that is older with a history and well….generally better quality and better made. Bit like me really.
Does Canberra have any Estate Jewellers? Yellow pages [...]
So boys and girls, the management gurus at Kmart have decided that we need to have access to their lovely shop 24 hours a day from next week.
Is it just me or does this seem a bit over the top? Is there really anything that we need that we cant wait till normal trading hours [...]
