Saturday in the city

Yesterday we hot footed it nice and early up the highway to Sydney for a special day in the city with my Mum and my sister in law and niece who came up for Melbourne. Mum, myself and the girls were off to see Charlie & Lola’s play while the others went to see the last of their Ballet subscription for the year. My girls were beside themselves – a bus trip into the city, our first trip into the Opera House and a sparkling summers day with the harbour and surrounds looking extra fabulous.

After the show (which was fab) we went and had lunch. And strawberry sundaes. And Prosecco (for Mum and I) before heading back home on the bus.

There was a lazy afternoon of garden watering.

A little gin and tonic drinking.

And lots of cuddles and Christmas stories.

It really was a special day.


  1. What a fabulous girls’ day! x

  2. Looks gorgeous – a day out in the city is my forever favourite thing to do. I love love love Harpers dress, where is it from?

  3. I would have loved that Charlie and Lola show, but none of the kids wanted to go!

    I am also in love with your gorg zinc house!! Where did you get that little beauty, Beth?? x

    • The show was FAB! Now, these little houses are from Barbara’s Storehouse in Bowral/Mittagong. I think they have an online store now…maybe…good luck! There are plenty in store I could send you one? Let me know x
