Supermarket and smiley pies

4th October 2006

sunny 20 °C

So today the plan was to go into Sydney.We woke up at 4:30am, so it was safe to say that we were jet-lagged.
Today, we did our 'BIG SHOP', and were surprised when it came to about £40, so we went back and got some more!! This time splashing out on 'luxuries such as chocolate and spaghetti hoops with extra cheese (more about them tomorro!)

We had to go and see the lady in reception to give her the bond and sort our rent out, and she was really nice. She told us about a shopping centre at Bondi Junction which she told us was at the 'top of the hill', to our surprise, well... it wasn't, and the hill was big, very big and after about an hour we reached the top and found the shopping centre and carrying on with the theme that also was very big. Ashleys jaw was on the floor when we saw the shopping centre, as it was about the size of the trafford centre but not two levels but six!! We had a wander around the centre and soon found loads of notices for jobs in the shops, which to us seemed promising. A lot of wandering later we were hungry so we went to the bottem level where we found PIE FACE!! As the name suggests this was a shop which sold Pies which had faces on them, a different face for every filling, seeing is believing! ...and trust me there was a lot of fillings, so a lot of weird faces! So it was fair to say that for Ashley there was now a replacement for greggs which he became attached to in the last week in Burnley, but where they have sausage and bean fillings PIE FACE has ricotta and sun-dried tomatoes :0 <--- that being the face on the pie.

After PIE FACE, we went to the market and bought some fruit then not fancying walking we got on a bus home. By this time (1pm) we were tired, so we thought we'd have an hours nap, we woke up at 7pm, so the jet-lag was not going great. We had to force ourselves to get up and stay awake until 12:30am, and hopefully we should be on aussie time tomorro!
