lethargic shopping saturday

now that's the way to do a stocktake... except perhaps at the deli counter or in the fruit & veg sectionI think perhaps that the word of the day today has been "apathy"... either that or "lethargy" or just plain old "tired"...

Ma was running a little late this morning, which was fine, because I wasn't exactly up to speed myself, plus the laptop was having a minor issue.

Shopping was fairly ho-hum... I did a slightly bigger than usual shop last week, so there wasn't a whole lot in the cart by the end of the trip, and over half of it ended up being Ma's.

Then it was back here for General Unpacking and Pfaffing About, and then we headed off to the Prospect Fair.

Now, we've been to a LOT of markets and the like over the past couple of years... and they've been varying in their quality... but this one was god awful. It wasn't a fair so much as a really bad school fete... or a bunch of school fetes that merged together to become UberCrapFeteMonster...

Way too much rubbish second hard brickabrak, way too many individual sausage sizzles, way too much "community" and not enough "quality".

Ma did pick up a couple of secondhand books from what I'm assuming was the Prospect Library stall... but even the sausage sizzle we ended up going to (out of about five or six possibilities) was crap... lukewarm sausages... urgh!

After a quick stop to pick up my dry-cleaning we headed down to Marion, for some general wandering around. Normally I'm all about moving through a space as quickly as humanly possible, but today I wasn't always even keeping up with Ma (okay, it was about 50/50, but much worse than normal)... I dunno, I guess you could just chalk it up to general tiredness...

In a way it's kinda weird, I'm sure that once upon a time it took us ages and ages to walk around Marion, but now we can do the whole thing in under an hour. And I'm not sure we're going in more or less shops...

Once we were done, Ma and I had one of those brain synergy moments that we have from time to time, and we were both thinking about going down to Glenelg and maybe stopping off at The Orange Spot Bakery for something to eat.

We also ended up doing a circuit up and down Jetty Road, which was good for perving, but not much else.

Then we went and got some Chicken Mango Curry pies and Lemon Tarts and went to sit by the water to eat them. And ending up watching a couple who may or may not have been having sex in the water (probably not, but I'm not convinced) and a very cute, pale skinned redheaded guy who was flailing around in the water for a while.

And that was about it really...
