A very busy day

Hi Everyone
As you can tell from the pictures yesterday I went to the Melbourne Aquarium. We don't have one in Hobart so it is a bit of a treat. The shark pictured is the only Grey Nurse shark alive in the whole state of Victoria. The other picture is the King Penguins. They were really big to me as here we only get the little penguins.
We went on a glass bottom boat and the sharks and other fish swam under us. That was really cool.
I got to have about an hour with my sister shopping and I bought a new handbag for ten dollars and a really nice black dress for fifteen dollars.
We went to a restaurant called Portland Lane for dinner and I got to have my favourite dessert - sticky date pudding in butterscotch sauce. It was wonderful.
We saw three acts at the comedy festival and I think three is a bit much. I was exhausted.
The first one was 16 different acts. The best two out of that was a guy who put tape on his mouth and just mimed everything and a guy who dressed up as a nine year old boy and talked about moving his grandmother into a home.
We then saw a woman called Denise Scott. I didn't like her at first but she got better as the day wore on. She talked a lot about her husband and children and made fun of them.
The last act was Arj Barker. He was probably the best but I was soooo tired by the time I saw him I couldn't take it all in. He started off with a send up of the whole 'breathe out' negativity stuff on a screen. He then did a whole heap of political and religious stuff.
Please pray that I keep my stress levels under control and am able to be assertive about my need for rest.
God Bless

  2. Hello. The animals are beautiful! I absolutely love animals so I was very excited to see them! You are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope that you can catch up on your rest soon. I trust that God will be with you and will help you out. I hope you will have a good day!
