My house becomes more and more lovely every week, and I think tomorrow that I will go to a local greenery and get some plants with tendrils to drape over my wooden bookcases.

This is my favourite kind of evening. A picnic in the gardens surrounded by the most amazing music - The Twoks! Fun! Plus Ferris Wheels with pretty lights and lovely food and company. It is a very relaxed and festive atmosphere. So happy to be celebrating a long weekend when the weather is so fine.

I just want to cry and cry. Premenstrual in my 40s on holidays. No fun. Sydney is a beautiful place. The breeze, the boats, the beach. It seems lusher and greener than Melbourne . Sweet frangipani scent. Nice to visit :-)
