Australians reject hard right politicking again. Good for us. Keep it up #VicVotes2022 #auspol

More than anything yesterday was a loss for the Herald Sun. #VicVotes2022

Quick review of the Good Food & Wine Show Christmas Market at the Royal Exhibition Building this weekend:

wine, wine, gin, wine, some other spirit, chocolate, wine, wine, wine, gin, chocolate, some cookies and butter, bon bons, wine, and some more wine.

Only saw one stand with plumb puddings.

Feel free to dm me if you’re interested. Polywork changed the link not long after I posted it.

A restaurant we used to go to in Soho (London, England) had the odd habit of seating strangers together. We’d begin the meal with just the two of us at the table, but then two random strangers would be seated with us at our booth. Or we’d arrive and find the restaurant looking pretty full, but there would be space for us at somebody else’s table, so we’d be put there.

I loved this; we met such interesting people. I often wonder if any other restaurants do this. Do you know of any?

I have to go to the bank and deposit a cheque. Nearly forgotten that these still exist.

Are there any cafe's in that have social tables where, if you sit there, you are encouraged to engage in conversation with others?

I see large tables in cafes usually occupied with students and laptops who are not keen to chat, however it would be great for social connection if there were tables where you were encouraged to talk with others. It would help with the social epidemic of isolation and loneliness.

dance classes at The Salsa Foundation in the CBD are short a few women/followers on the Monday and Tuesday night classes so they are offering two for one for those who want to attend both nights.

Ok #mastodon, let’s show our true colors.

Reblog this if you’re a champion of the Oxford comma.

We’re officially friends.

Happy palindromic date day for most of the world: 22/11/22

I'm working towards my professional coaching accreditation with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and need to accumulate a certain number of hours before I can submit my application.

While I have been coaching for over 10 years, I can only claim hours after the accredited training course.

Let me know if you're interested and I'll send a calendar link so you can book in your session, straight away.

Extreme weather warning for Victoria which includes Moe where two of the matches will be played puts a hole in my plan.

Weather in Melbourne again inhospitable to being outdoors. Four cricket matches on. Sunday sorted.

Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
