Need some navel-contemplating time!

We have had a very busy week and I'm sorely in need of some time to sit and re-gather. The week has involved drama class, storytime, catching up with friends, another planning meeting about the short film Billy's in, swimming carnival, as well as work every night for me. Then we decided to christen our van with a trip down to Sydney this weekend to watch the Swans play in a (free!) trial match (AFL or Aussie Rules for the uninitiated). No major hiccups with the van - a big sigh of relief to get down there and back - I hate driving in Sydney at the best of times! Despite harping to go and see the Swannies play, Billy was bored after about 5 minutes lol, so we ended up leaving at 3/4 time - they were in front by 60-odd points at that stage anyway. Obviously my jinx doesn't extend to unimportant matches!



And for a change of pace, photos from the guesthouse we stayed at last weekend (sans Billy):

Go the Swans!

Sydney Harbour is lovely, isn't it? It looks like you had a lovely kid-free weekend.

Looks like you had a lovely little vacation. The view from your room was absolutely charming!
