The place to be

Over the last 2 days I have come to realise that the most popular place to be in Sydney must be my street. It's sort of like the anti-Bermuda Triangle because in the last two days within 50m from my front door I have met (within 10m of each other):
  1. A friend of my parents who lives 6 hours drive from Sydney, who happened to be parked on the side of the road as I walked by.
  2. His daughter who was across the road with her 10 year-old child visiting their doctor. The last time I had seen her was before she had ANY children.
  3. My friend and her daughter - although not entirely surprising since she owns the beauty salon which inhabits that 10m strip of land.
  4. A friend from uni who lives a few suburbs over and was visiting the beauty salon for the very first time.
  5. A registrar from hospital who happened to be visiting the chiropractor next door to said beauty salon. She lives half an hours drive away.
The lesson in this: you're never anonymous, not even in inner Sydney, and especially not when you're wearing ugg boots, old purple cords, messy hair and just running out to grab a coffee!

Always the way! I was having a chat with some pals the other day and some were saying it's a corner store only rule, where you can wear ugg boots in public. Or the local coffee joint etc.

I think you've just proven that wrong ;)

Definitely wrong this time.

Oh well not like that's gonna stop me in the future anyway.

Although I think its getting too warm for ugg boots now anyway - during the daytime at least!!
