Mari checks in with her landlady see how she is doing and asks her plans for dinner.
Mari Looks for a Flat (26)
Mari: Hi Shirley.
Shirley: Oh hi Mari, how are you?
Mari: Good. I am just checking in to see how things are going with Foo-foo.
Shirley: Um, you know, that dog walking really seems to have worked. I had a bit of a word to Sandra upstairs and she said that she hasn’t heard him huff so much and she’s getting a lot more sleep now that the baby is sleeping so, yeah, that seems to be working really well, thank you.
Mari: Good to hear. I was also wondering if you could give me some dinner recommendations. I’m thinking about going out - bringing Foo-foo with me.
Shirley: Well, have you been down to the Rocks area yet, which is just down near the harbor area?
Mari: I know where it is. I haven’t been down there yet.
Shirley: You haven’t been down there? There’s some really lovely restaurants down there. In particular, there’s one little place called The Plum Jelly Deli that I really like to go to. It’s just a little sort of sidewalk cafe and actually I’m a vegetarian so they have a lot of really nice vegetarian food down there if you are interested in that kind of thing. Or were you looking for something more up-market, what kind of....
Mari: Well, I just want to bring Foo-foo with me so do you think they’ll let me bring Foo-foo?
Shirley: Yeah, well as I say, they’ve got a little outdoor balcony area and you get served out there and just have a bottle of wine and an evening meal and I think it’s okay to take the dogs with you just to that part so...
Mari: Ok. Do you want to come with me?
Shirley: Oh, um, well, when were you planning on going?
Mari: In like half an hour or so.
Shirley: Oh you’re going tonight?
Shirley: Ok, you know what? Actually that would be nice. I don’t have anything else on this evening so, yeah, thank you.
Mari: Good. So I’ll see you in about a half an hour with Foo-foo.
Shirley: Yeah, I’ll come down and get you.
Shirley: Ok, great.
Mari: I’ll see you later.
Shirley: Alright, bye.
