Sydney Trip
I had fantastic time in Sydney visiting our daughter Justine and SIL Andrew. The weather was great, not too cold and blue skies, and of course Sydney was her glorious self. My favourite Sydney icon is the Harbour Bridge and I was so happy to see it again on our way to the Rocks. We did lots of shopping including a visit to the Queen Victoria Building (just glorious) and lots of markets including Paddington Market. I bought lots of kitsch things, an asian good luck money box cat, a felt angel from the Phillipines, a matryoshka doll, some bookmarks (of course) and my daughter bought me a tiara that I can hang on the wall. I have a thing lately for crowns and tiaras. We ate lots of fantastic food - a delicious meal at an Italian Restaurant in Burwood and a wonderful home cooked Italian pasta dish cooked by Andrew who is a wonderful chef - Buon Appetito. As you can see I just love Italian food. Thank you Justine and Andrew and that Suki girl (their gorgeous rag doll cat) for an absolutely wonderful time. Great place, great shopping, great food and more importantly great company.
