My favourite things






I've had a pretty sensational weekend - Starting Thursday night, dancing with Aloe Blacc at the zoo, and tiffan for lunch made by a Thai lady (so delicious!).







Squeezing in the exhibition at Carriageworks by Nick Cave (the artist, US) which is well worth a look if you can get there before it closes on the weekend.















Friday night saw some Mah Jong with some fabulous friends, always an enjoyable evening.















Saturday we took to the driving range before lunch, with much hilarity and then a rainy afternoon bath.













My husband and I went to Eddie Izzard's Wunderbar - which I found delightful (my husband didn't laugh once...guess it was too whimsical for him). It was in the gorgeous State Theatre that still amazes me in it's beauty.











Another family lunch on Sunday, but this time, one down, as is becoming our norm with the very busy Uni student.












A girlfriend and I headed out to Ultra. I'll be honest, having seen 2 of the acts before, I thought they were a little 'down' (perhaps too much partying in Melbourne the night before or the staging didn't work as well for them?) But I still had fun, though I got so much dust in my lungs I'm still coughing!

This morning I woke very happy but feeling my age and in physical pain as I apparently used a lot of usually dormant back muscles  when I dance!






It's back to reality, but fortunately, while a little dull and mundane, my reality is still pretty good and my mood is elated.






Happiness is indulging in your favourite things, when you can. Art, music, dancing, food, laughs and friends & family - they all make me smile. Do more of what makes you happy.


(Note to those of you in the US and UK, this is a real Sydney weekend! Love this town!)

  1. ...concerts today have become more about the lighting and special effects and less about the music. Dang I feel old! My muscles would ache too. I'm glad you had a great time. Thanks for stopping by.

  8. sounds like you had a lot of fun. I know I feel my age too if I stay up too late and wake up early. A little too much drinking gets me the next day too and I aim not to do that because I hate waking up feeling like crap. Thanks for sharing with #OMHGWW and see you next week!
