77. Wednesday 25th July. Carlton.

I have been thinking a lot about other options than my car. I love my little car, but the doors are leaking and the mechanics (I've asked more than one) can't work out why. There was a little problem with the fuel spilling out if I filled it more than 3/4s full. It turned out that the fuel tank had warped (and split something important) and a new one had to be sent from France.

Then a fortnight ago I was driving on the freeway in the pouring rain and I hit a giant pot hole. The plastic hub cap thing popped off and the rim is dented. I took it in to get checked, but the guy who checked didn't notice that the brakes were broken. I found that out myself when I was driving about Bendigo yesterday. So now I am waiting for new brakes.  Hopefully in time for me to drive to my banjo lesson next Tuesday.

 78. 26th July. Woodend. I accidentally went into R.M.Williams in the city on Monday and they were having a sale and they had one pair of these left and they were in my size and 50% off and it was a sign and now I own my second pair of riding boots. Am I too afraid to wear them yet? Yes, sir.

 79. 27th July. Melbourne Uni. Rain.

 80. 28th July. Woodend. Flooding.

 61. Monday 9th July 2012. Melbourne. The fabulous button store Buttonmania where I will go from now on for all my button requirements. It is in the old Nicholas Building on Swanston Street. It has ALL the buttons. On the way I didn't stop to buy liquorice at Darrell Lea and now I am kicking myself because with the news that came just days later that they might be going out of business, there is now no liquorice to be had. Not even for ready money.

62. 10th July 2012. Woodend. Not, strictly, *my* photo at all, but I was right there spinning, and it was my camera and all of mine for the day were pretty ordinary.

63. 11th July 2012. Melbourne Uni. Nell's bike. Nell is coolest person I know. If I ever get a bicycle, I want one just like this. With the handle bars just so.

 64. 12th July 2012. Spencer Street Station. I secretly love all the location specific advertising that NAB are doing at the station.

I want those boots.

57. 5th July 2012. Woodend. I have been taking a lot of pictures of winter tree branches and train stations. I think I like all the shapes. I have resisted putting lots of them up. There are only so many pictures of tree branches and train stations that people-other-than-me can look at.

 58. 6th July 2012. Woodend train station. I have mad boot envy. I want those boots. She told me what site. Sheplers. If I weren't so chicken of buying boots on the internets without trying them on, I would get some.

 59. 7th July 2012. Woodend.

 60. 8th July 2012. Woodend. Another day of nearly forgetting to take a picture. I think it wasn't helped by the fact that I pretty much didn't leave the house all day. A second lovely sunny day in a row, but cold... icy cold.
