I bought Syndia a new jacket today. It's a similar one to mine so it still zips onto the leather pants that she's adopted as her own . We picked it up this afternoon and spent some time wandering around the Victoria Markets. Syndia has this fascination with corn on the cob, so while she was making a mess of herself I opted for some much more appetising poffertjes. Yumm - real butter and icing sugar

We headed out towards Arthur's Seat via Beach Rd, but ended up stopping just beyond Frankston. It was a nice ride, but it was getting cold and I didn't want to make the trip into a miserable experience for Syndia, so we headed back while we were still feeling mostly warm. Not a bad ride though.
