'Tis most bizarre. For the entire time I've been here it's looked kinda bareish (mum would go and buy food and we'd eat it that night). I actually did fruit and vegatable shopping today (grapes, a lemon, a capsicum, two small onions, and some mushrooms). Plus I got bacon, and chicken nuggets.
PLUS successfully managed to buy two sesame seed rolls from the bakery (leaning over the counter and pointing like a loon to get what I want LOL!) and I've got a few large containers of, well... I'm pretty sure it's soup. At least, it looks like soup... man am I going to feel silly if it ISN'T soup!
I got vermicilli noodles so I can make a vegetable soup out of vegetable stock, vegetables, and other random things thrown in. That should last me a couple of meals, and I've got enough instant noodles to sink a battleship! I'm not even counting the frozen stuff I've got in the freezer (vegetables, one frozen meal thingy that tastes REALLY good!), the kuskus that tastes really good when you shove some base stock in it when it's cooking. I shouldn't have to go shopping for at least a few days.
Plus I got random cleaning products for the apartment (bathtub cleaner, that sort of stuff... Oh! and I got some lemongrass scented bubblebath for when the bathtub's clean!).
And I must not forget the beer! I even got a can of Ginger beer, that's REAL beer!
The people at the shops must've thought I was most odd. I had to do the shopping in two trips and I had a loaded basket both times.
Ooooh. I had a random guy come up and ask me where the tea section was....in POLISH!! The only word I caught was tea, but I was able to drag him to the right section. Felt most proud of myself when I did that.
I've been doing stuff I don't usually do at home. I've done two loads of WASHING!!! (er, yes. I used to wash in China, but never did my own washing in Australia). I'm about to go and fight with the vacuum cleaner (right after I wash up from my VERY nice lunch. Tell you what it was later). I've got all the school textbooks OFF the floor and onto a shelf, and later I might even clear off the coffee table!
So, lunch was the two bread rolls topped with a nut flavoured cottage cheese, edam cheese, bacon (freshly cooked. It still smells like bacon in here), and mushrooms (which had been cooked with the bacon so they tasted luurverly!). Tasted much better than I thought it would, actually. I wasn't sure on the cottage cheesey stuff.
Guess, what I'm doing tomorrow? I'm going horseriding through the woods! Should be fun 'cause the leaves are changing colour around here at an amazing rate! 'Tis so pretty!
