The great thing about Melbourne is that a field jacket could be an option at any time of the year. You just never know...

Haha, very true. Take this morning, for example, the weather was pretty nasty.

Those in Canberra will likely already know about it, but the cafe Two Before Ten is definitely worth a visit. I believe a mate of Jason's is responsible for the fit out, and theirs is the nicest coffee I've had in our nation's capital, paid for from my humble coin pouch"ette".

coin pouch would be handy, i chuck all change into my pocket which then gets thrown in a jar ... suffice to say that jar is getting very full as it never gets spent

Don't know about the rest of you, but at my tender age it's very satisfying to count up the change jar and haul it all down to the bank. There's often a surprising amount in there.

Yep, nothing like putting $6.47 into your Dollarmite account!

Thursday is going to be 35 degrees in Melbourne. Shorts weather.

Although, predicting Melbourne weather accurately is near on impossible.

I'm from the mean streets of Unley, South Australia. There were years my father didn't even make $100k, or BARELY made $100k. I remember one day sitting in the local park where a man was taking a stroll. I looked over as he pulled out an Extra packet, removed a piece of gum and let the wrapper drop to the ground. Sure, someone picked it up later and put it in the bin, but for those few moments where that piece of paper was on the ground - I was horrified. Someone PUBLICLY LITTERED right in front of me.

My neighbours were twins. For the 18th their parents bought them a demo model BMW X5, black on black. They had to share it. Can you imagine?!

These are the things I experienced as a true Australian gangster growing up on the mean streets of Unley, South Australia. I envy those with a coin pouch. Where I'm from you don't carry cash. It's just not that type of neighbourhood.

Teh is teh....I'm a bit weird :P

I don't really know but I just felt like It was just sexier in olive as it felt more 'authentic'....as I said I'm a bit weird but otherwise the navy goes with everything (except me; too big now T_T)

Any sweat/humidity magnifies the wrinkles you get in pure linen as well.

I was planning to wear these nice Irish linen LS Landsend shirts I grabbed including two in plaids which don't seem to wrinkle too much. The Boss/SWSBO immediately KO'ed the idea so it will take the appropriate spousal defiance for it to actually happen.
