Yesterday Mr Curious, The Little Guy and I went to Chatswood for lunch and a bit of shopping. We went to Chatswood BBQ kitchen for lunch.

Mr Curious had his usual Special Fried Rice with a side of BBQ pork. He was disappointed because the fried rice was a bit bland and the BBQ pork too salty, but somehow they didn't balance each other out.
I ordered the Tofu Fish Balls with noodles, with a tasty broth. Well I had some because TLG loved the tofu fish balls so much he ate half of them!
Shopping followed and we bought a Eurotrike for TLG from Kids Central, which has 20% off sports and activites toys.
TLG is totally into anything with wheels at the moment and he loves the trike. He points at the trike and says "car"! He can say "ma" and "da" randomly (he says "ma" whenever he wants anything, sometimes that happens to be me), but "car" is the first word he associates with an object. He is such a boy! Personally I'm a bit tired of reading books about tractors and giant wheel loader but I suspect there's a fair way to go yet.
I was hoping to drop by Alannah Hill but I was overruled by the male majority :-(
Today we visited my MIL to celebrate her birthday. We went to the Regatta centre in Penrith hoping to have a picnic however it was too hot to sit under the sun, so we had lunch near the audience's stands in the shade.
I didn't have time to prepare food so lunch was of the take-away variety - a whole chicken and chips from Red Rooster, potato salad from Coles and pumpkin and couscous salad from Thomas Dux. The birthday cake was a Simmone Logue lemon curd cheesecake.
I love cheesecakes but this one is only OK. The lemon curd is so sweet it completely overpowers the cheesecake.
TLG had a great time roaming around in his "car". He had the biggest smile which made everyone happy too.
It was a shame that we didn't get to spend more time at the centre because it is lovely, but it was simply too hot to stay outdoors.
I felt asleep at my MIL's place, a bit too much wine at lunch methinks. We're now at home and Mr Curious is sleeping on the sofa.
I'm looking forward to relaxing after we put TLG to bed. Next week will be a busy one!
