We arrived at the hotel and I, being in holiday mode, decided to try the "Mother" energy drink in the fridge. Not for a second did I consider that mid-evening might be a bad time to try it. We went out and had a very pleasant meal at one of Orange's many pubs: Hotel Canobolas. After going back to our digs for the evening Ange was flagging but I was w-i-d-e awake. Around 1am I started to get anxious. I worried about having the wrong clothes, I worried about car accidents and flus and heart attacks. I dreamed that there was a nuclear war and I worried about being worried. Yep, "Mother" is a mother of a drink all right. I finally settled at 4am. Never again will I drink energy drinks after midday!
After all of that I was surprisingly happy to wake at about 7 and went for a stroll round the block. I took photos of anything that took my eye. It looks like I have a fence fetish.................?
We wandered the shops, oohed and aahed over pretty trinkets, played dress ups, drooled over shoes.....................you know the kind of thing.
