Easter

Better late than never, eh...

Easter this year was pretty good.

Friday:

Went to the movies with a friend to see Mr Bean's Holiday.

Definitely better than the last Mr Bean Film, and different enough from the TV series to make it worthwhile. While it did include some of the same old jokes, most of the film was new material. It was good to see Mr Bean make some friends for a change. Don't be put off by the bad reviews, they don't know what they are talking about.

I'll give it **** (four stars)

Saturday:

Shopping.

Sunday:

Visited my brother, his wife and kids at Anglesea with mum. The had a camping site in the foreshore caravan park from Good Friday until last Sunday. The weather was great, I actually went swimming. Most people were going in with wet suits on (wimps!), but I braved it, due to the fact that I don't actually own a wet suit. After the usual initial shock of cold water it was fine, the problem was getting out. Later on my cousin and her husband who happened to be down that way dropped in for an unexpected visit. I ended up drinking a beer which meant that I couldn't drive home, so Mum had to drive home. We stopped at Hungry Jacks in Geelong for dinner on the way home.

Monday:

Went and had a look at the Hobsons Bay Model Railway Exhibition. This is always by far the best model railway show around. Until last year it was always held in the stadium at Albert Park Secondary College, but due to that school closing it was moved to Collingwood College. I found it a bit so so this year, perhaps like the air show I feel I've seen it all before. One of the best things about these types of events is the sausage sizzle, unfortunately this year a new system was implemented whereby you had to go and buy a ticket from the canteen before going out to the BBQ and collect your sausage. Unfortunately the last ticket was sold to the person in line in front of me. Not happy.

Hungry, and for some reason or other we decided to make our way to Beacon Cove for fish and chips at D'Lish. Not as expensive as Doyle's in Sydney, but still pretty good. The final leg of the day was a drive down along the bay to Mordialloc, and back to Elwood before cutting cross country via Hotham Street, Alexandra Parade,Grange Road, Madden Grove, Swan Street, Power Street, Denmark Street, Princess Street, Willsmere Road Kilby Road and Burke Road, back to the right side of the Yarra.

That's about it really.
