πŸ’Œ Post from Perth πŸ’Œ – Dinner Dates and Lunch Liaisons

Who receives post in the mail these days? We never get anything exciting just bills and junk mail. I remember when I first moved to Hong Kong and I wrote to my mum and dad and friends once a week, and my return address was “Poste Restante”, Hong Kong. I used to go often with my passport to the General Post Office and wait with excitement to see who had written .. or who had not! Poste Restante is a general mail service worldwide where letters are sent to the General Post Office awaiting collection by the recipient. Has anybody ever used this service?

A Glimpse of My Week

Starting with our dinner date last Saturday, I had booked a table at a restaurant that was also a music venue. When we arrived we were seated right at the back but on a high table. This turned out to be a good thing as the music was so loud. The menu was fairly limited so I treated myself to a dessert, Lime Cheesecake with a Gin and Lime syrup. There was a gluten free option so I went for this. The keyword being “option”! How hard would it be to use gluten free biscuits. It was a wonderful venue though and the band were great.

Monday and Friday were also dinner dates, Monday a girls’ night and Friday with friends.

On Friday there was a special dining night at the golf club (I don’t play golf, just a social member!) a Latin American themed menu with tables on the terrace. We enjoyed the temperature and the wonderful evening sky.

Also on Friday I finally caught up with a very good friend for lunch, and when we checked our diaries couldn’t believe that it had been five months since our last lunch. Where does the time go? We had more than enough to talk about in the short time we had.

Every other Wednesday I play bridge socially at the golf club which is followed by a lunch with the ladies who are playing. I’ve just joined this group so I’m gradually finding out about all these new friends.

Well not much else to report, Anthony’s passport finally turned up three months later! I did return to my “dancing in a line” on a Wednesday evening – a year later… I hope the steps come back to me eventually! They have learnt an awful lot of new dances, it was hard to keep up.

Have a fun filled weekend and thanks for reading!

  1. I love a lunch date with girlfriends. When I read about the letters, it made me think about how we also only get bills these days. This took me back to when I had penpals as a child. I kept writing to one until the 90s when we went to email. I even travel to the US twice to catch up with her. I really loved getting her letters.

    • No you wouldn’t, I still try and write in a travel diary but have now just downloaded a diary app as well!
      You would have loved the venue and band Phil but wasn’t cheap for what it was!

  2. I know it sounds old fogey of me but I wish venues where live music is playing didn’t have the volume up so loud. It’s great to have live music but if I’m there with family or friends I want to be able to have a conversation too. Recently we’ve been to two places where there was excellent live music which didn’t blast us out of the room. So much nicer.
