Home again

I had a wonderful time with some great women. Got to spend the night in a hotel in the city. Missed DH and Lucy but only a little.

Went for a wonderful 50 minute walk into the Royal Botanical Gardens. Lots of runners, wonderful harbour salty smells, beautiful gardens, an amazing number of people at Mrs Macquarie's chair waiting with cameras for that wonderful picture of sunset behind the opera house and harbour bridge. God, I love this city so much. Nearly got locked in the park for the night which would have been hysterical as I had left my mobile phone at home and would not have been able to ring the emergency number. Talking to DH tonight I told him that I would have probably been able to climb around the fence down near the sea wall and all he said was "tomorrows headline - woman found floating in the harbour".

Ate too much over the last two day but feel rejunervated and looking forward to reinventing my work wardrobe after I saw all the smartly dressed women working in the city.

Off to bed - sweet dreams. Looking forward to catching up with you all soon.


  1. I am so glad that you had 2 beautiful days to spend in Sydney. The botanical gardens are just so gorgeous and I can't think of a better way to spend time than looking out over the harbour.

    I am, however, that the headline did not appear in the paper the next day - that would not have been very nice at all. I hope you remember to take your mobile with you next time!!

    I hope you have a lovely weekend and look forward to catching up with you another day :)

  2. Have fun reinventing your wardrobe! The weekend sounded like fun...enjoy the rejuveniation....

    Keep smiling,

  3. Glad you had a great time at the conference. Sounds like some shopping is in order - always fun ;-)
