We’d like to dedicate this weeks blog to ‘Phil’. My sisters boss who always asks after us.. Thanks Phil !!
Well weeks 18 & 19 already, this holiday is flying by. Well the last post saw us in and around Bathurst. We decided to remain in Bathurst for a few more days and use it as a base for visits to Parkes and Cowra before hitting Sydney Town.
We arrived in Sydney a little earlier than planned, so it was great to surprise our Niece Eliana at school. She was so excited and I was a little teary. We stayed at Laura’s place for a couple of nights (and I got to see Twilight Breaking Dawn part 2 finally with my friend Jod) before we headed to my sister Belinda’s apartment in Drummoyne where we spent a whole week. We took the kids to see Madame Toussads which was probably the only ‘touristy’ thing we did. We’d done the opera house before and the rocks and darling harbour. This time Wayne wanted to really see what all the fuss is about. He’s not a fan of Sydney really but I’m happy to say that FINALLY he is. He spent a bit of time taking pictures (of course) and we drove everywhere.. All around North Sydney, then the Northern Beaches, a drive into town in the evening to see the lights at Town Hall (although couldn’t get a park) . He found many ‘prime vantage points’ to take happy snaps and have a picnic.
The girls loved spending time with their ‘Aunty Belinda’ which was great as she saw a lot of us !!! She’s happy she has her room back now I’m sure. Olivia turned 9 in Sydney and we had a massive day. Spending the morning at Pancakes and then bowling and them from 5pm we hit Luna Park with family and her BFF Ava.. We didn’t leave until after 11pm and we were all shattered. She had a great day though.
The following day my sisters arranged to have a little afternoon tea birthday party for both Olivia and Sarah and they were spoilt rotten and also put on about 12 concerts for all of us.. I love having girls !
We are now back at my sisters Laura’s house, before we head to my Nans for a week. I caught up with my awesome lovely amazing school friends last night for dinner and it was so great to see them all. I hadn’t been to Panthers for a very long time, and it’s changed so much !! What happened to Reactor 1 ??
Lots of things have happened, can hardly remember any of it as it’s been such a whirlwind.. There’s a heap of pictures though. I’ll try to be a little more organised next week although with Christmas around the corner.. who knows !
Special mention must go to Belinda for shouting me a massage at a dayspa in Glebe. I’m still hurting 🙂 ..
