And no, it's not to have a formal viewing of my laundry, nor is it to bask in the glory of my comatose whippet. The thing is that Canberra comes into its own in Autumn, DO NOT SCOFF! There's things happening every weekend, and they're fun. No, really.
This weekend we have Fash'nTreasure at the Old Bus Depot Markets. Unrool. Also, Sculpture Garden Sunday at the National Gallery. I love this event, the NGA art educators do a grand job of thinking up some super activities for the kiddos. Live music too. I believe there is an open day with the GG - I've never been but it's supposed to be a rippa. The one I'm really looking forward to on Saturday is the Horticultural Society of Canberra's Autumn Flower Show, rumour has it there is an excellent plant stall, am also thinking of entering the Giant Dahlia comp. the prize is 'Max the Dahlia Man' who becomes your very own house guest for the next twelve months. Intriguing.
And if none of that tempts you, scroll back to those first two piccies. Those are my op shop purchases yesterday for a grand total of twenty bucks. Check out Canberra's excellent I Op Therefore I Am site for where to go for a bit of thrifting joy. xx
