The days before lockdown

It is time. A second lockdown for us in Brisbane. It’ll start in 3.5 hours and hopefully finish on Monday at 6pm. But I’m not bitter. The weather is bad and neither Jarryd or I had any major plans this weekend. This will be my last chance to really relax before I start working on Monday. However, I managed to run around the city and enjoy my break the last couple of days. This is what I have been up to!
I made a visit to South Bank. It was hot hot hot, but the gardens looked really good.

Hi little duck

Beautiful sunflowers.
Hi again River Quay Green. This is where I did an Amazing Race with work a couple of weeks ago.
After South Bank, I crossed the river and made it to the QUT Art Gallery where you can see the Miffy & Friends exhibition.
I also made a visit to the botanic gardens. It was too hot for both people and ducks.
This fella was really enjoying the heat though.
Both the ducks and I thought it was time to avoid the sun for a while. I strolled through the city to King George Square.
Hello from King George Square. I took a quick photo and quickly made my way to the City Hall (and air con).
I was going to visit Brisbane Museum on level 3. But first I was admiring the City Hall entrance.
I wish the elevator in my apartment building looked like this (and smelt as fresh).
Some photos from the Bauhaus exhibition. Really enjoyed it!
I made it back home to South Brisbane after a sweaty walk through the CBD. We had rice paper rolls for dinner which included shrimps, avocado, veggies and a lot of coriander. Yummy!
I finally got my thumb out and had a haircut. I decided to go for curtain bangs and I’m really happy with the results. It needs some more maintenance, but thanks to lockdown I have the time to learn how to get the bangs right with my straighter. Winning in life!
Today when I found out about the lockdown, I did the mandatory lockdown shopping. Since our fridge died yesterday and our new one won’t show up until maybe Saturday or Sunday, we’ll need to use our esky for all veggies and margarine. Not the best timing for the fridge to give up… But we’ll survive with all the pasta and pesto stashed away in our cupboard. It was crazy busy at the supermarket. I’m so happy I’m still on holiday so I could go shopping early this morning. After spending way too long time at Coles in various queues, I made a final stop at Three Monkeys.
I had my favourite Spanish Breakfast. YYYYYYUMMY! We’re doing a full on vegan weekend so this was the last chance to have a little bit of meat.
2.5 hours left until lockdown and I’m having a Tiger lager while writing this post. The rain has stopped for a moment and I can hear that it’s already a lot quieter than usual outside. Hope everyone is having a great start of the weekend, and please stay safe!
