Love where you live

 It had been awhile since I'd been out to the Opera House - taking advantage of the 2 for 1 tickets, I invited a friend to see the Stoppard play there last night. It literally put a spring in my step as I walked out of the train station towards the harbour.

My friend suggested we eat at the Bennelong Bar before hand, and I was so glad she did. While it comes with a hefty price tag, the experience is lovely. The view is magnificent and the service delightful. It felt like such a special occasion, even though we were just grabbing a quick bite for an hour before the show.

 I am very lucky to love where I live. While discussing what we would do the $150 million lotto win, my husband picked some $40 million dollar house. I couldn't understand why he'd want to move, even to a fancy big house. Our current location is so handy to everything, including the gorgeous Opera House. I certainly wouldn't want to change that, even for a house with a harbour view.

Even the ceiling has a view.
So this week, I am loving getting out and about on a weeknight again. I'm loving the Opera House and all it's glory and I'm loving where I live.

What are you loving this week?

PS We didn't win the Powerball so were saved the massive argument about moving to some stupid big house in the suburbs....


  1. I've always wanted to dine at Bennelong! Go glad you guys splashed out for it!

    1. Just the bar. Which was $$. The restuarant I imagine is more. I went about 14 years ago. So can't imagine what it's like now...

  2. Always wanted to go to Bennelong. Sigh, one day. There really is something very special about the harbour & the Opera House. Despite hating the commute I used to do, I never failed to be thrilled at the sight of it as the bus travelled over the bridge.

  3. You are indeed very lucky to live so close to the opera house and Circular Quay etc. Dining at Bennelong would be pretty awesome too!! I love that whole area - it has such a special atmosphere. :-) #TeamLovinLife

  4. You're indeed lucky to live near Sydney's famous landmark. #lovin'lifelinky
