We found this new type of jumping spider, I’ve not yet identified it.
Today we slept in. It’s continuing the trend, as I’ve been resting this week when I’ve not been working. Mike returned home to me on Tuesday evening and we’ve not been apart since.
It’s been a hard week, emotionally I’m up and down and often feel very exhausted. Though I will note, that I do have some things to smile about…and I should remember these things.
Mike wanted to cheer me up today so suggested we head to Fremantle and get outside to the beach.
We decided in the spur of the moment while we were there to go to an open house at a cute little beach home we walked past as it was really lovely. With a large front deck and an ocean view… The home was small, but we loved the yard and the charm of the space. It was a short stroll from the beach. Whomever lives there will be very lucky!
Mike then took me to a dog beach to watch the little furry friends run around. He was right, it did make me happy. I loved how enthusiastic and carefree they were chasing each other.
We decided to get some battered fish and chips at a popular joint Cicerello’s (hundreds of people were with us!) which has been recommended to us a few times… We ate some really good sea food (though I gagged when I saw my scallop had some green poop in the roe!) and enjoyed some beer and cider in the sunshine, while we watched the puffer fish (also in the hundreds) eat the japanese tourists fish pellets.
Mike and I got some desert to go, which tipped our bellies over the edge…but it was soooo good. We did a lot of walking and browsing shops before we took ourselves home.
