Jolly Holiday

Elizabeth, Jenni, Mum and I returned last night from 3 wonderful days in Melbourne.  For Mum's birthday in December, we bought her a ticket to see "Mary Poppins" and flights/accommodation.
Melbourne January 2011
Plenty of shopping, eating and fun times in Melbourne:  New shoes to wear to a wedding in March, breakfast in Brunswick Street, my favourite car on Lygon Street, fun at National Gallery Victoria, fabulous Christmas shop, polka dot clip for my glasses, wearing my Mary Poppins shoes to see Mary Poppins, t-shirt from my girls.  I'm looking forward to seeing the photos the girls took.

We all LOVED "Mary Poppins" - definitely lived up to our hopes.  We also saw "The King's Speech" - excellent movie.

The best thing about the trip was being able to spend a few days together - pretty rare for us these days to be able to spend more than a few hours together.  Maybe next time the boys will join us (as long as they don't have to see "Mary Poppins", I'm told).

Hello Lynda, oh your weekend sounds like bliss. Spending time together as a family is very hard to organise so I know you appreciate it.
Have a happy day.
