Changing Your Mind Is A Girls' Prerogative

Sunday 10th June, 2012

I have finally figured out how to post photos.  I need Google Chrome.  Apparently Internet Explorer won't support the latest update to Blogger, (well that's the message I get across the top of my toolbar) and so I downloaded Google Chrome and hey presto, I can upload my photos.

This is the message it gives me when using IE 

"Your browser is no longer supported by Blogger. Some parts of Blogger will not work and you may experience problems. If you are having problems, try Google Chrome

With that sorted I am one happy girl!

Today was a day where no-one could decide what to do.  Firstly Katie wanted to catch the bus into the city and from there do what?  "I dunno" she said.  After thinking about it she said maybe we could go to the Zoo.  "OK, but we can't take your bag into town as we have nowhere to leave it and so you'll have to stay again tonight." I told her.  "Yeah, that's fine" she said.

Then she suggested perhaps we could go to the football, Port Power v Hawthorn.  As the game didn't start until 4.15pm I said that wasn't a good idea as it would be freezing  in the stadium and we didn't have coats as I had taken them to the dry cleaners only yesterday.

Later on she said that she wanted to go home tonight, "Nanna, I'm used to going home on a Sunday night" she said.  With that sorted I suggested  going to the Craft Fair.  We had seen the signs advertising it on the way home last night.  She was happy with that and then asked if we could also go GoKart Racing and if we had enough time could we go to a park so that she and Poppa could kick the footy.

Off we went to the Craft Fair first.  I expected her to say she was bored and wanted to go but she surprised us.  Maybe it was because there was lots of jewellery for her to look at.  She also had fun in creating some tags for herself.  

We spent longer than I thought we would at the Fair, and so we went to see about the GoKarts.  The minimum age to drive these things is 12 and so she missed out there, but they do have dual go karts and so Tony and her decided to have a go in one of them.
Oh dear, I didn't realise the speed these go karts can go.  Some of the guys really pushed them and took the racing seriously.  Tony and Katie drove theirs around rather tentatively at first but then got some speed up towards the end.  Tony was even managing to get his lap times down.

It looks like that's another activity to add to the list when she comes.  She said it was awesome and now wants her birthday party there.  I said that wouldn't be a good idea as none of your friends would be able to drive a go kart.  "Hmmm I will have to think about that," she said.

We had run out of time to go to the park.  Instead it was time to meet Kahra.  We ended up getting a pizza for dinner, coming home and settling down in front of the TV for the rest of the evening.

Tomorrow is a Public Holiday and we have nothing planned. Depending on the weather we may do some gardening.


  1. Sounds like you know how to give your grandchild a wonderful weekend!

  2. Sounds like you folks had a wonderful time. I must say that pizza looks simply scrumptious!! Hmmm, maybe I'll pick me up a pizza for supper tonight. Have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
