Dear Mum,

After a relatively relaxing morning Deanne and I got ourselves sorted and headed out for the hills where we had made a reservation for lunch.

The place reminded me a little of one of the places we have eaten in Tobago as we ate on a balcony that looked out onto plants. It was a vegetarian place called Genesis In The Hills and the food was very nice, I had a sandwich and Deanne had an open burger, both of which were excellent, the only problem being my insulin was low and I had forgotten to change it, it ran out half way through lunch. However the food didn’t have too much carbohydrate in it so I just decided to wait until we got home to get pumped up again.

It was a dumb thing to do because otherwise we could have stayed out a bit longer and gone for a bit of a walk in the nice cool air of the hills, however as it was it turned out okay as we got home in the middle of the afternoon then made the decision to head out for South Perth and see if we could find  couple of bookshops we had found on Google.

We only actually got to one of them as it was a café and so, after having a bit of a browse and deciding which Harry and the Dinosaurs book to buy Joshua for his birthday (Harry and the Dinosaur’s birthday party, or some such), we had a drink and bought Josh a smiley biscuit. By the time we left it was about half five and so we went to see where the other shop was, which appears to be a bit of a wholesaler for kids books, so that might come in handy when we’ve actually checked it out.

We came home and got ourselves ready for dinner, at which point there was a power cut, apparently a common occurrence over here but not one we’ve experienced so far, so we had to have dinner outside so we could see, then put Joshua to bed in the dark. I’m sure it won’t be the last time.

We’re possibly going to the zoo tomorrow but it depends a bit on the weather (I forgot to say it was chucking it down from when we set off to when we got back from the book shops).
