A trip to the Big City Sydney and a Giveaway

Well I feel like I have had a busy first week of school holidays!  I am hoping my next week will be a bit more laid back and that I will be able to get a few items ready for my store (insert fingers crossed here).  I just spent a couple of days in Sydney with my family, we had a great time.  This was the first time my kids had been to Sydney and they were suitably impressed with the size and scope of the city, unfortunately I did not do my homework properly when I booked our accommodation and we spent much of our walk down Oxford Street distracting our children from the interesting sights and signs of the, lets call them not for children shops.  Well, live and learn, they came out unscathed and we had lots of practice in answering questions about the "interesting" people watching that we did.

The main reason we went to Sydney (a 5hr drive from our town) was to see the show Ovo from Cirque du Soleil and I have to say it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!  I would highly recommend you go if you get a chance.  I haven't got any pics of the show because they do not allow you to take photos when you are inside and my camera battery died before I could get a pic of us outside the show.  So I have a few photos to share with you of us at Centrepoint Tower and at the Aquarium at Darling Harbour.

And for all you Nemo fans out there

"Nemo never go to the drop-off1"

"My name's Bruce, fish are friends, not food."

So now we are back home and I have caught up on some blogs, I will get on to those items I want to create and I am about to make a mass purchase from some of my favourite sellers at TpT.

Not to forget Dana at Fun in First Grade is having a massive 500 follower Giveaway.  She has some awesome prizes so make sure you jump over and check it out!

  3. WoW your trip looks amazing Tania! Is the Darling Harbour Aquarium similar to UnderwaterWorld? We went to UnderwaterWorld about 2 weeks ago and just loved it!!!
