Trip to Sydney.

We've just returned from an enjoyable trip home to Sydney. The weather was perfect for winter with warm sunny days, no wind, and pleasant evening temperatures.
It was filled with catching up with loved ones and dear friends.
A trip to a wine estate, south of Berrima, the first day with friends, where we met up with more friends who had travelled to meet us half way, from their home in Canberra. The weather in the Southern Highlands was typically chilly for this time of the year, so we made ourselves very comfortable in the restaurant. After a delicious lunch, beside an open fire and five hours of laughter and chatting it was time to head back to Mosman.
The next day I met up with a very dear Aunt, Uncle & Cousin for lunch and more laughter,
chatter and catching up on family news.
I managed some serious retail therapy, especially with such abundant choices, although thoughts of excess baggage, curbed my spending somewhat. :)
We met up with friends for dinner on Saturday evening & other friends for brunch on Sunday

When we returned to Wellington it was a shock to be greeted by the very chilly, wet weather. Perhaps, the warm Autumn this year, didn't prepare me well enough for the wintery weather we're now experiencing. Thankfully, always a great time to find a warm spot to sit and stitch.

Not so much stitching although two knitted scarves for this winter.

  1. The scarves look great! Always wanted to learn to knit and how to make quilts. Maybe one day I will. Your trip sounds like it was a lot of fun!
