How to forget life for a while

Moon over Elizabeth Bay

We've just spent a lovely few days in Sydney. Just the two of us, with no obligations to see anyone other than our bestie, and when it comes to her that is no obligation at all.

I walked up a beautiful leafy street in Eveleigh and visited the Finders Keepers markets, and left again with an empty purse and a head full of inspiration and ideas. We met up for lunch and got lost in a few hours of book shopping at Kinokuniya, and then we visited Tessuti's Fabrics in Surry Hills which was very husband-friendly with sofas and magazines.

We had dinner with our friend at the same place we'd had breakfast, and wondered at the magnificent magnolias on the street that were in bloom. We laughed and ate and drank and admired the view we've been enjoying at the same hotel for fifteen years.

Oh Sydney, I love you. But I love being back home just as much.


  1. Sounds like just what you needed.

  2. What a spectacular photo! I'm off to Sydney in the morning for my very first visit. I can't wait!

  3. I thought about visiting Finders Keepers on Saturday morning but just couldn't fit it in - glad you did!! And Magnolias! Still! wow.

  4. Sounds like the most perfect weekend - food, wine, friend & fabric - Bliss!!

  5. Stunning photo Michelle! It sounds like a wonderfully relaxing weekend.

  6. Amazing photo, that light is just perfect! Sounds like your weekend was too!!
