My Saturdays

Every Saturday I do the same thing...

The rhythm and the constancy is a comfort. So much in my life is like a rollercoaster. To have something simple and repetitive... ah, the relief...
I wake up. Have breakfast and a cup of tea. Listen to music, read the paper, surf the internet.
Then I go to pilates. There is a lovely studio in Mornington, staffed by physiotherapists. My teacher is excellent - both supportive and encouraging (important for someone like me who lacks balance and coordination!!) and she pushes me along! Compared to where I started, I can see a vast improvement in my ability and strength. And surprise surprise... no more back pain! Miracle.
I do have to laugh to myself though, every time I use one of these machines - a 'reformer'! lol
Afterward, lunch!
Mr S and I nearly always go to the same cafe, called Coffee Traders. It is tiny, but they do good coffee.

... and we pretty much order the same thing week to week: latte, old fashion lemonade, banana bread toast and tomato and avocado toast. (Have I ever mentioned that I like toast?)

Later we go shopping - I love walking up and down Main Street (even the name is a killer!).
Homewares (even someone who sells Cornishware - one of my favorites).


yarn, clothes, jewellery, sheets, lingerie, books, flowers, food... what more could a girl ask for?

Mr S and I had a lovely morning in Sorrento today.
We had morning tea at "'The Baths" restaurant, right on the foreshore. It's a nice place - even if they did burn the coffee. They got the cake and lemonade spider right! We sat and watched the ferry leave for Queenscliff and then walked over to the Bandstand, and then onto the pier where the ferry docks.
By the time we got there the next ferry was arriving, much to the delight of Mr S. We watched it back in and disgorge its load of trucks, cars and pedestrians.

Walking back to the car, we saw spider crabs and tiny fish swimming in the water. A very gentle and rewarding morning.
