The last few days have been an absolute pearler in old Sydney town. Each one better than the last. And with a return to arctic Winter temps due for the weekend, we have been soaking up the sunshine while it's here. Monday, Scott went to work for half of his day off, because he is just crazy busy at present (and working long long long hours), but he managed to get out in time to meet Felix and I for a lovely lunch and walk along the beach. Felix slept right through the meal, so we enjoyed a cheeky drink and I had the tastiest grilled snapper and pumpkin puree with pesto & roasted rosemary potatoes. Quite the step up from my usual salad roll weekdays. Scott having the afternoon off also meant being able to pick Angus up from preschool, for the very first time. Such a beautiful thing to see Angus' expression when Dad walked in.
Today, the boys and I hopped on a bus and met Nana at Circular Quay. We wandered and chatted and climbed structures we shouldn't... thank you Angus. Then had lunch on the grass in the Botanic Gardens. Sydney Harbour looked picture perfect under twenty two degree skies. The sun has been just what my senses required this week, with my thoughts and feelings a little scrambled. My gorgeous friend had her operation today and the long journey begins. But she knows we are all here waiting for her and she will have endless support over the coming months.
