I ended up with one of those when DD was culling Chookie, I only used it for omelette and it was perfect.  Iím not even sure if Iíve kept it or moved it on as I have so many little appliances for this and that.

Think I will probably give it to GD when she heads for uni next year.
OMG, we are at Chadstone.  I have never seen so many interesting shops all together.  There is a  travalator .  Especially good when you return to the Hotel, uphill.
Didnít buy much except Lindt chocolates. Tomorrow going for a test drive in a Tesla, electric car.  They have a show room at Chadstone.

Chookie my kids used an app one year when we spent the day at Chadstone to find where the shop we needed to go to . You might need foot massages by the end .

I love Chadstone, I think it has been extended since I was there last.  Your feet certainly get a work out. Have fun in the Tesla Chookie. A couple in car club have one. I believe it goes 0-100 in something like 5 seconds or something. Itís red and they love it.

I have never been to Chadstone, I think I am too scared ... I will maybe go one day but think I might have to leave my credit cards at home!  Glad you are enjoying it Chookie.

Chadstone sounds amazing.  On one of our visits to Melbourne, I looked up where it was but it was too far away from St Kilda and would have taken ages to get there (and back) on public transport.  Would love to see it one day though.  :)

I believe there are special Chadstone buses, JulieO.  If I remember rightly they leave from Federation Square in the city.

Marina, that is correct, bus from city.
On the second trip today, not nearly so daunting. Handy to be able to comeback to hotel and put feet up.  Would you believe there is no Haighs chocolate shop.
Bought RAL ĎS Dr some Seed baby clothes. Wife expecting any moment now.

LOL Marina. 
Today I went to the Sheridan shop at Harbour Town (for the second time in 5 days) to buy more bedding accessories for my room.  On the 2 visits I saved over $320, just have to have the room painted early next month before I change the bedding.
On the way there I called into a furniture store and bought a rug for my lounge room, stopped at Spotlight and picked up some towels and cushions - I had a great shopping day and the car was quite full.

Wow a Judy, there is no holding you back when you get going.
Today is our last full day at Chadstone hotel.  They have given us a $50 voucher to spend at Chadstone shopping center. 
Yesterday we spent a couple of hours with the Tesla car people. We do like the idea of an electric car but in the end canít see a lot of driving advantage over our present car.  Some of this is to do with the fact that we donít drive as much as we used to. Charging the car isnt a big issue and most charging stations are free.
I looked at some Paspaley stud earrings. Will think about them.
RAL bought a very nice Navy blue jacket.

Great shopping Judy.   I had to buy new towels just recently, mine were well passed their used by date.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.
