I don't know some of you might think that 6 hours is a bit of a trek but I think we are used to it making the 5 hour drive to college so often and on the plus side a return trip to Melbourne only cost each of us a few hours driving + $50 petrol money.
Both Kate (also a teacher) and I needed to escape the job just for the weekend and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to visit and see what all the fuss is about. The markets were like any old markets...but I did enjoy the lovely shops and restaurants in the side streets of the city. So many places I need to get back to!!
We also managed to catch a show....Rock of Ages.....seriously it was just so light hearted and funny. Some people might turn up their nose at it because its not deep...but like I always say....I'm no snob....I FREAKING LOVED IT!!! It featured so many of our (my sister and I) favourite Supernatural songs!!!! YEW!! Anyways I wanted to be a hero and wear a dress because I was so sick of covering up.....anyways I got a cold from it.....Thanks to my sisters miraculous chicken soup...I was all better in 3 days.
We also ate LOTS at the Crown Casino buffet!!! The dessert was just delicious!
We were also lucky enough to catch up with one of our sisters from college who has taken up her first year out teaching in Melbourne....Next time Lolo we will stay longer!! Sorry my postings may seem so uneventful lately....I haven't had much time to sit down and do as much as I would like....I'm always trying to catch up with everyone...ever since I returned back from America I have only had one weekend home.....so please accept my apologies.
As for the clothes.....I didn't really have anything exciting to wear and I am really sick of boring winter clothes, so both my sister and I wore my bright floral jackets I picked up in Nowra at an Opshop for $2 each. I love the shoulder detailing on the jacket my sister wore.....I chickened out and wore my trusty chucks because I knew we were going to be walking all over the city......Hope you are all well......and thanks for reading.
