His ’n Hers

Standard

The Saturday late in August the G.O. took off from work so we could celebrate our anniversary with a weekend away at Port Stephens has turned into three. Last weekend we had family matters to attend to, but this weekend is ours.

What a novelty to share my Saturdays with the G.O…  Normally I blog, walk, clean and grocery shop… a mixed bag of which I’d happily forgo clean and shop. This Sydney morning was too windy and pollen content too high to comfortably walk, so I checked out WordPress posts while we did a lick & a promise clean.

Because the G.O. usually works Saturdays, I gave him the preference when choosing where to go, what to do, then from my own endless list filled in the gaps.

The G.O.’s first choice was his mate’s classic car & motorcycle import shop, Gasolene on Parramatta Road, at Camperdown. Agreeably, during the week I’d read a food article in the SMH re Thai Style Fried eggs w/ jasmine rice and nam jim at Runcible Spoon not far from there, so first item on the agenda was breakfast.

Enroute, we’d realised we’d been to Runcible Spoon previously in pursuit of the Spanish Baked Eggs with harissa (still on the menu).

Runcible Spoon is located just down the street from Deus Ex Machina.

On to Gasolene, no-one was there but we had a squizzy at the merchandise through the windows.

We moved on to Victory Motorcycles .

Done now with the G.O.’s agenda, our next destination was Haberfield with the promise of good coffee and Italian sweets at Papa Pasticceria.

Decisions, decisions at Papa Pasticceria

As we were in need of a top up of wine glasses we went to Lamonica Homewares.

Finally, we couldn’t avoid the weekly grocery shop but at Lamonica IGA it’s a pleasure not a chore, and as well as the usual stuff we of course stocked up on Italian goodies.

Although I can’t imagine these G.O.-at-home Saturdays will last for long, the G.O. has disclosed that today he omitted to include Extreme Toys, so I’ll keep my own to-do list prepared, just in case.

About EllaDee's daleleelife101.blog

After a decade of living in tiny apartments in the inner-city of Sydney, Australia with my husband referred to in my posts as the Gorgeous One (G.O.) while I worked in corporate-legal and the G.O. in civil earthworks we relocated 500 kilometres north in December 2015 to our home in the Nambucca Valley to follow our dream of living simply and creatively. We travelled around Australia in 2016. Now we work on our 1930’s house, have a vegetable garden and a dog plus share a flock of backyard chickens with our neighbour. These days I’m a Horticulture student, something I dreamed of doing for many years. I write about day-to-day life, past & present, people & places, and take snapshots with my smart phone.

  1. Ha! I’m just in the middle of writing my Saturday post – with food pix too. No bikes or vehicles though.

    I like the Lamonica building.

    I empathise. It is nice to be able to spend a bit of time with our partners.

    • Most Saturdays when the G.O. doesn’t work we are away, so it’s novelty to do Saturday opening Sydney stuff (ie Victory, and Gasolene was supposed to be open), and to have someone to share the cleaning and shopping with 😉
