P365 – Day 259 – remembering (16/09/2011)

Today marked two years since my father passed away.

I wanted to do something to remember him, but wasn’t really sure what would be the right thing to do, especially since we’d be on holidays.

I decided that, as Dad had served in the military and had spent many hours in the War Memorial on his visits to Canberra, it would be ok to go there.

I took Juniordwarf with me, although he didn’t really understand what it was all about. Maybe when he’s older.

I wasn’t sure what I really wanted to do when I was there, and it was difficult to really reflect. But I’m glad we went.

After the War Memorial we met up with a friend for lunch at the Dickson Asian Noodle House, which was my favourite place for laksa when I worked in Canberra. I’d been looking forward to this since, well, the last time we were in Canberra – about 18 months ago. Their laksa gets rave reviews, but this time, unfortunately, it wasn’t as good as usual, which was disappointing, as I’d waited so long.

Never mind. There’s always next time. In 2013!
