The monster car park for Woden (at the hospital)

By johnboy 17 November 2008 51

Having given her buddies at the Canberra Times a head start (watch for a glowing feature in the future) Katie Gallagher has publicly announced that she’s interested in what you think of a 9 story free public car park for Woden.

She’s promising the following features:

  • 64 disabled parking spaces and 54 motorcycle parking spaces
  • decks designed for simple traversing whilst looking for a parking space and easy exit from the structure at all levels
  • well lit and include traffic and pedestrian movement sensor activation
  • a CCTV security system including duress buttons and a PA system

In all the thing will have 1880 car spaces.

The money is apparently coming out of the health budget.

You can email your thoughts on it to before 5 December.

When did hospitals start being there for admin rather than patients?

A long time ago, judging by the way the place runs at the moment. Don’t get me started. 😉

Ok, your mum is a legend.

I was a monster (just shy of 10lb) baby… My wife\babymother (whoever she may eventually be) will have my respect if she ever decides to go non-caesarean.

Feathergirl, I have a recipe for a carrot and pineapple cake if you want it. You’re going to be a mother, eat whatever you like…

People will give you all kinds of conflicting advice, just do whatever feels appropriate and doesn’t sound like it’ll hurt your baby. You’re the mum, you know best.
Baby screams have evolved specifically to make you feel bad about whatever made the baby scream, but apparently you learn to deal with it.

NB: I am a childless man, so know nothing about full-term pregnancy except what female family and friends have let me in on.

Having a nine or ten pound dreadnought baby is a badge of honour, ant. I’ve only ever cooked up seven and eight pounders myself!

So when is young Baby Feathergirl or Featherboy due exactly?

By the sounds of it, it won’t be very feather-like. More like a Dreadnought.

And dairy – if there is enough cream cheese frosting!

Granny 10:46 am 18 Nov 08

Yes, it has plenty of vegetables!

Carrotcake is good for building babies; you shouldn’t worry unless you are craving deepfried, battered bacon.

Thanks Poptop, MWF and Granny, I will definately be getting my husband to drop me off at the hospital next appointment!

P.S. I am still a bad mother as I just polished off a large piece of carrot cake at 9:30am in the morning (I have had breakfast before that too)and am going to go searching the work fridges for more food. I am ‘a remorseless eating machine’ to quote The Simpsons.

If it’s really such a big carpark, it’ll become a de-facto park n ride for southsiders heading to civic.
