Just coming into Sutherland now. And of course brought to you via Baby Toshiba.
I needed to come to Sydney for several reasons, not least psychological: it’s the first long solo journey since the cardiac ward.
Started at the crack of dawn.
At this time of the year that’s not all that early…
Curious to see a rail motor set arrive, so I took it as far as Thirroul. I’d never been in one of these before.
Now on the normal Oscar – just passing Mortdale, and all is well…
Here’s how it began for me:
And that dominated this blog for the next couple of weeks, though by 9 March I was back home.
Of course that should be 2011…
Meanwhile. and not unrelated:
- 30 days, 17 hours, 34 minutes and 24 seconds smoke free.
- 1537 cigarettes not smoked.
- $992.00 and 11 days, 17 hours of your life saved.
- Your quit date: 2/28/2011 2:00:00 PM
The quit date is the approximate time the ambulance arrived…
Out there in the world much was happening, wasn’t it? Some of it I even noted… More on that next time.
M and Sirdan – just on one year ago. M is off to the USA for a holiday soon.
Photo taken in the much missed Chinese Whisper on Crown Street Surry Hills.
Just some photos of Wollongong Harbour.
- 29 days, 1 hour, 15 minutes and 15 seconds smoke free.
- 1453 cigarettes not smoked.
- $928.00 saved.
I discovered more options in wallpapers…
Yes, no surprise there. We have a new premier in NSW.
What is a surprise is the less than anticipated Greens result.
A spectacular night for the New South Wales Coalition has turned into a disappointment for the Greens. The Greens had been hoping to celebrate the party’s first ever seats in the New South Wales House of Assembly. But despite being heavily favoured in two inner Sydney electorates, the party could easily come away from today’s state election without winning either.
Outgoing Health Minister Carmel Tebbutt is tipped to win her seat of Marrickville over Greens candidate Fiona Byrne, who is also the Marrickville Mayor. With more than 60 per cent of primary votes counted Ms Tebbutt had just under 40 per cent of the vote while Ms Byrne had just over 35.
"At this stage I still haven’t won Marrickville… I can’t yet even say whether I’ll even be in the parliament. I am hopeful," Ms Tebbutt said.
The result is too close to call in the neighbouring electorate of Balmain…
I suggested yesterday that Noreen Hay could be out of a job. It’s looking very likely with an enormous swing against her and in favour of Uniting Church minister Gordon Bradbery (right). Fred Nile and the Christian Democrat types are not fond of Mr Bradbery.
