Empty Streets


Every year I plan to head to VIVID on State on Origin night, and this year was no exception. However the deluge of rain was making me think I'd miss my chance, and as I looked at the diary, I realised I wasn't going to make it to the Botanic Gardens this year. And I was sad.

I kept peering at the hour by hour weather as I took the kids to their activities, and on our return at 8, I decided to shoot over for a quick visit.

I was, as expected met with NO CROWDS. No lines, and virtually no people. The Gardens are spectacular this year, so my heart literally sung (to a tune that celebrated how lucky I was to live close to such a beautiful, magical city).





This week I'm loving breaks in the weather and opportunity.

What are you loving?

  6. Yes to breaks in the weather! We were lucky on the night we visited VIVID to get a clear patch after the rain. I'm also loving how the rain often pauses just long enough for me to get my run in most mornings at the moment.

  8. Did I read somewhere that they may not continue with VIVID? Perhaps it was the weather and lack of crowds? I can't remember the context of the article now! #teamlovinlife
