A couple of things I’m liking:
I love that a farmer’s market will be starting down in the city for us city folk in a few months. I’m so excited!! There is currently one all the way at Willunga but that is too far to drive to justify buying local produce. I occasionally go there with a friend who lives locally if I happen to be there on a Saturday morning.
It’s only recently that I’ve started to become more aware of the benefits in using fresh produce and buying things in season and would like to do this more. Therefore buying locally produced, fresh food that hasn’t had mountains of chemicals used in the growing process can only be a bonus. Even more of a bonus for me is that it will be happening not too far from my house.
I also like that when catching the tram this morning that I was able to get a seat. I’ve just started taking the tram once a week into the city when my son goes to the local kindy. I drop him at a local childcare on this day whereas I normally drive into town with him.
The first week I caught the tram I thought it was quite crowded, that is standing room only from my stop which is less than half way into the city. After asking somebody if that was normal they said yes. It’s obviously been a long time since I caught public transport in peak hour times.
This morning, though, a tram went past me and I never knew there was an express. A couple of minutes later an old red rattler stopped and it was practically empty so I got a seat. Mind you by the time we got into town a good ten minutes late it was jam packed so perhaps the tram people got wind it was going to be an extra busy morning. I will be interested to see what happens on my next tram catching day.
UPDATE: I think the empty tram was a one off. Hope I’m proved wrong.
And one more thing I like about Adelaide that I can look foward to is the Adelaide Cabaret Festival. I’ve booked tickets to go to two shows. It’s a bit risque booking tickets to shows before booking babysitting but I figure it will be all right on the night. Instead of having a Tight Arse Tuesday night, they have a Wowser’s Wednesday (my term) where you can buy two tickets for the price of one. All you need is a friend to go halves with you and I’ve managed to find a friend to do this.
