Sunday Selections

I'm joining with Elephant's Child and River for Sunday Selections. 

It's been a while since I've produced a Sunday Selection. Normally my photos are quite random. 

The past week was busy with spending some time to book a holiday, later this year to escape our winter for a couple of weeks. Train, flights, hotels, coordinating. It all takes time to do yourself but back in the days when we used to use a travel agent, that too took a lot of time. . 

This dude looks like a smooth operator who might make up our beds. Our first overnight train journey is looking promising. Will he return to tuck me in?



This Sunday not so random but photos I took last winter as I wandered around the Queen Victoria 
Gardens.

Well, by the time I had read and commented on so many blogs, then replied to comments on my own previous post, I don't have time to finish this post. Publish and be damned.

  1. Well, I'm glad you've sorted out your holiday - that's more important.

    1. JB, I suppose it is more important than blogging social connections. Experiences do give good blog fodder.

  2. It is all a question of priorities. And yes, he does look like smooth and competent operator.

    1. Sadly EC, you and others did not seem to be a priority.

    1. I thought the bed looked quite magical Darla. The clip didn't show it, but it is a very comfortable seat too.

    1. CC, it seems ages away but the end of August will soon enough approach.

    1. Strayer, yes they will be. It is not quite as a good as a proper bed in a sleeping compartment, which we've never done, but it will be a good introduction for us.

  7. Going away is a great idea; winters are depressing, even when ours lasts only 3 months. Imagine living in a country that has snow for months after month :(

    1. Hels, you lived in England. I would really struggle with the weather there, even though snow is mostly minimal.

  8. That's a pretty nifty train bed. I hope there aren't any cyclones when you get to Queensland.
    I've been known to get out of bed and sort out a Sunday Selections post when I realise I've forgotten one, just as I did last night. I climbed in, pulled up the newly washed quilt and then got right back out again and turned on the laptop.

    1. River, I think it is off season for cyclones. I did think of doing what you did, kind of. That is fix it early morning.

  9. I can see why you'd want a tuck. He is something!

    1. Kirk, after your comment I had to watch the clip full size and he is not too shabby.

  10. They look like very narrow beds. I would worry about rolling over and pressing the button with my elbow. Before you know it, you are folded up and forced back into the seat position. Could be painful.

    1. Very amusing YP. Did something similar happen once to Lucy in I Love Lucy? I'm sure I've seen something like that.

  11. That bed looks different but probably comfortable, it's narrow though.
    It does take a long time to visit blogs and comment, then our own, do posts, find photos - but it's fun...love it.

    1. Margaret, I am so slim and trim. A narrow bed will not be a problem. I am also untruthful at times.

  12. That's pretty cool, watching him make up the bed. Makes me want to take an overnight train!
