it was a little like manic monday for me today. brad had a specialist appointment at the mater hospital which is in south brisbane....a high traffic area. i've been travelling back and forth to the mater for specialist's visits since brad was six months old so i'm very comfortable with the drive. however, i've never had a problem finding a parking spot in the public carparks before......until today! both of the hospital's multi-level carparks were full which, of course, sent me into a mad panic as street parking in the city areas is limited to meter parking of 15 minute or hourly slots and are usually taken that late in the day. i don't do well outside of my comfort zone and the parking dilemma definitely stretched those boundaries for me. after a hair-raising 15 minutes of driving around a few blocks, we ended up down at the southbank public carpark so i was able to breathe a huge sigh of relief. we had a much longer walk in store for us but, luckily, we had left home early enough so brad wasn't late for his appointment.
