Then I caught the tram up to Flinder's street and talked the whole way with a lovely Polish girl who had just arrived in Melbourne as a tourist. It's nice to talk to strangers sometimes!
In Federation Square I went to the Melbourne Makers Etsy meet up and met so many interesting people who all had their lovely things with them. I think my favourite was a crocheted cushion of a pair of boobs. Brilliant!! I'll let you know if they are on etsy any time soon. I definitely want one.
I then had to go and pick up my bike from Brunswick street, as I cycled down the gentle hill to home I decided it was much too nice an evening to go straight home so I cycled a bit along the Yarra, past the children's farm and the convent. As I was cycling I saw a flock of black cockatoos circling. They landed next to two baths acting as watering troughs, and all drank their fill. I fumbled in my bag for a piece of paper and found the little booklet moonmum had given me at the meet up and quickly sketched the squawking cockies in it!
