Happenings #3

FlyBoy and I spent a child-free weekend in the city. We were free for 48 hours, to explore the city, WITHOUT KIDS! 

It has been such a long time since I'd been away, without children, that I was almost giddy with excitement at the thought of going where we pleased with having to deal with whinging, boredom, demands.... you know what I mean, right?

Here are a few of the highlights:

Kinokuniya : where I spent ages looking at all of the craft books.

I was restrained and only bought these 2 books. Have I mentioned that I love appliqué lately?

Dinner was a selection of Asian dishes.

The next morning we visited The Sydney Tower Eye or as I still call it, Centrepoint. We went up to Observation Deck which is 250m above the city and enjoyed the 360 degree views.

Can you see the Sydney Harbour Bridge?

It was quite lovely up there with a beautiful floral display to celebrate the arrival of spring. 

I love Daiso stores and sadly (or perhaps it's fortunate) that we don't have one near home. Again I was quite restrained and only spent around $30 on some goodies.

My best buy was a 3-pack of lace zippers. As everything in Daiso is $2.80, they were an absolute bargain and I am kicking myself that I didn't buy more.

That evening we (and thousands of other people) walked down to Darling Harbour for the fireworks display. 

When it comes to fireworks, I'm like a big kid and ooooh and aaaaah at all of the prettiness.

Sadly, Sunday came along all too quickly. We had some more delicious Asian delights for lunch,

... and went to see Wicked (again).

If you have the opportunity to visit Sydney, go for it. Sydney is definitely worthy of a space on your bucket list. 

There is so much to see and explore, so give yourself more than just a weekend.
