Tuesday 22 May, 2012 – Melbourne, Australia
Today some of the girls and I took off on a shopping trip (after visiting the Eureka Skydeck with sweaty paws) to Fitzroy – my favourite Melbourne suburb – down Brunswick Street. Total c/c damage = $700.00 NZD, but I did get a gorgeous new red winter coat (definitely needed in Christchurch), a dress, a cardy (as well as shoes, underwear, perfume and make up back in the CBD).
Lunch was at a cafe recommended by one of the shop assistants, Black Cat Cafe. The soup of the day at Black Cat was more like a lamb stew with lentils and was only $8!!! I also had a pint of Rekorderlig which, if you haven’t tried it, is an amazing Swedish berry cider. Delish!
Dinner tonight will also be down Brunswick Street at a Brewery called Little Creatures, followed by a drink at Naked for Satan. Hopefully not a late one, the train for Bendigo leaves at 6.15am in the morning!!
