Wow… when you put your mind to it you sure can pack a lot of fun into one 3 day weekend!!!
Fi, of Kiwifruit fame caught the trans-Tasman bus (I mean, plane) on Friday (at stoopid o’clock, I might add, bless her) to come over to hang out, drink a few margaritas and revisit the odd old haunt or two in my neck of the woods! I have to say, I’m a little bit stoked, it’s so nice to have people go out of their way to come to see me!! I just forget to warn them that Chez Deeleea has hot water rationing and a cat that isn’t beyond breaking into the bathroom while one is sitting on the throne (note to self, remind people to lock the door). Fortunately in that instance dignity remained intact for all concerned…
I could give you the blow by blow account of where we went and what we did, but let’s just say we had a few margaritas topped off with a pretty good turn in Mexican food, we shopped at ‘the Mall’ where cute pajamas were purchased for the little misses and misters at Chez Fi (can anyone say – Tar-zjay dahling?), we scarfed down the obligatory eggs Benedict ( becoming a tradition, I think…) and we spent a good portion of Saturday trekking around Manly/Dee Why and the Botanical Gardens to put our cameras through their paces, we also took in a show (amateur Treasure Island – arrrrgh me hearties) cruised Ikea, saw possibly the most ‘out there’ movie in the Love Guru and negotiated the city awash with pilgrims in town for World Youth Day 2008. (Didn’t see the Pope but.)
Anyway, I really think I should let the pix speak for themselves…
