The Healthy Body Book launch at Busybird Publishing at 118 Para Road, Montmorency is being held on Saturday 22 July from 3 – 5 pm and I’m happy to say that my sponsor Nikki Ellis from Cinch Training in Macleod is one of the co-authors! Refreshments will be provided – admission is free but you do need to RSVP by 18 July if you’d like to come along. This is the second book of Busybird’s Health Conscious series and Donna Campisi, author of ‘The Unlikely Marathoner’ will be launching the book.
I made it to a morning class at Cinch today and have needed to be consistent with exercise over these colder months, particularly given I’ve had a couple of dinners out over the past week. Mr Rosanna and I had dinner with some friends last Saturday night in the back dining area at one of my old favourites Paladarr Thai restaurant and cooking school housed in a former Art Deco bank building in Alphington. The food is still great although they do kick you out early being in a residential area – we were served our bill along with hot towels at 10pm! Still, the duck curry and steamed fish dishes in particular are recommended.
I spent last night catching up with an old work friend at Spanish restaurant Tinto in Burwood Road, Hawthorn and managed to snaffle a park right on Burwood Road as it was very busy when I arrived. Tinto’s been there for a while, and like Paladarr Thai, is a warm and cosy place to go in winter – it was full house last night. My girlfriend Kath and I shared both the smaller and medium sized dishes which included amongst other things some yummy field mushrooms, a seafood casserole and broccolini. I did exercise some restraint and didn’t order the churros (Spanish donuts) as much as they were tempting.
My next lecture is one for the foodies so I look forward to letting you know what that’s all about closer to the end of the month. It’s been a very sombre week world-wide and a number of my friends and colleagues are heading to London in the coming months so I am hoping they stay safe on their travels, and you as well if travelling.
