Sigh, another weekend over, and the beginning of another working week (albeit a short week for me – yay!). My weekend was filled with much of what most of my weekends are filled with:
Fresh homemade bread – instead of leaving it in the bread maker, I took it out at the dough stage and shaped it into mini loaves.
Banana bread – I had to restrain myself from eating the entire loaf in one night.
at Gypsey and Musquito in Richmond. I went for the sourdough toast with eggs, and then ordered extra avocado and tomato relish. The eggs and the relish were delish! The toast however was over-toasted (my hands were sore for trying to cut it in the end) and the avocado wasn’t quite ripe enough to mash for my toast. I also ordered (but not pictured) their hot chocolate which was beautifully rich and you can taste the high quality cocoa used. All in all it was a cute brunch spot, but perhaps won’t be on the top of my list to return to.
and some lap time.
I did also mix it up by heading to ACMI in the city and viewing the Game Masters exhibition.
You weren’t allowed to take photos inside – hence the ticket shot. The exhibition itself was a lot of fun – it took you through the old arcade games, and moved right through to the Xbox Kinect of today (watching kids play the dance game- awesome). It was hard at times to get a turn on everything you wanted to – there was a five minute rule, but I imagine many of the smaller kids don’t quite grasp this concept. If you are able, I would recommend heading on a school day so you can have free reign on all the games. I did manage a turn on the computer with SimCity 2000 on it – used to love that game and was surprised that I still remembered how it worked. It was a pity I couldn’t get much of a city going within the five minutes. It was a lot of fun though, reminds me that I need to go see more exhibitions when they make their way to Melbourne.
How was your weekend? Have you seen the Game Masters Exhibition?
