Going on holidays - Share my snaps!

I'm shutting up the blog later in the week as I prepare for my trip - a big milestone birthday celebration (gift?) with a friend to see the Great Wall of China. I'm very excited about it. Lamenting we won't have time to go to the Yue Minjin gallery, but there are grander, more ancient treasures to visit in our blink and you'll miss it visit. It will be the longest I've been away from the kids, ever and that makes me uneasy, but I'm sure once I'm there it will be fine, and I'm leaving them in the very capable hands of their dad.

The weekend involved some kids fun, making pasta and then dinner out at Lumi Dining with friends. As we waited for the uber home, the Darling Harbour fireworks started so I ran to the shore to see them. Can you believe after all these years, this was the first time I saw them? On my return, I will plan a Saturday night excursion to watch them in full, from a better vantage point.

What did you get up to this weekend?
