We forgot to mention on Wednesday and Thursday, we have had a visit from a WA sporting legend and his family, they all came in for lunch on both days.
Needless to say, we didn’t have a clue who he was but everyone in the shopping centre seemed to be suitably impressed by his presence.
He was and still is as far as we could tell, none other than AFL Commentator and Ex West Coast Eagles player, Glen Jakovich.
Those of you outside WA probably won’t have a clue who he is, but both days we had people who we had never seen before come in for a coffee and make a point of sitting somewhere close to him before making some inane remark that he has probably heard a million times before, but give him his due he was very polite to them all. It was probably just as well that he was polite to them, he is a big lad and could probably make a bit of a mess if he wasn’t being polite.
The weather today has been pretty bad again just for a change, the wind has been howling and the rain pouring. Elena had a call from her boyfriend overnight telling her that the wind had ripped part of the roof off his house, they had to call out the emergency services to help them patch it up until they can get it repaired.
It was one of our busiest days so far in the Café, we think that everyone must have been fed up with sitting indoors watching the rain and came out for some retail therapy.
We had noodles in a box for dinner tonight, it could well become a regular occurrence as we are having trouble finding decent fish and chips in town at the moment.
