In the meantime we went back to East Melbourne and then walked into town. No pizza for lunch today. Instead we went to the Bento stall in Melbourne central and had noodles (with chicken teriyaki in my case) and then we walked about a million miles in search of various things. We came back to Ballarat via the Highpoint Shopping Centre (which has changed immeasurably since the last time I was in there), and by a circuitous route, there having been an accident on the main route we would normally take.

Right. Wish us luck. Lindsey and I are about to griddle our lions and brave the supermarket. Anyone want anything while we are there?
(Footnote: Alas - the Gingerbread houses are not to be. My career in the construction industry has come to a crashing and abrupt end. I simply could not get the roofs on to my houses. Every time I tried everything came crashing down. I will try again, though (although not for this Christmas). I think I was being too hasty and not letting the icing base set hard enough. And for now, I shall go and make some gingerbread reindeer, people, snowmen and Christmas trees. Or I will when Lindsey has finished making lemon meringue pie)
