Im Baaaaack!!!

Phew... what a couple of days it has been.....

Friday lunchtime we left for Sydney. the whole family. All jammed into the car - now the kids are getting bigger, three in the backseat is not as comfortable as it used to be. Lucky it was only a two hour drive to get to the Hotel.

We stayed right in the CBD, just metres from Central Station. OMG - I never fail to get overwhelmed at how busy and fast and crowded it is down there. Cars screaming along at breakneck speed just centimetres away from pedestrians. Thousands and thousands of people jammed onto footpaths - all scurrying (striding) to where ever. Moving as fast as possible - sweeping everyone along with them. Ugh. I hate that bit. Too many people jammed into anywhere. Especially so many people that are ANGRY. One young 'lady' screamed abuse at my daughter because she 'looked' at her. Scary stuff. I cannot even begin to imagine what it is like in the REALLY big cities like New York etc. *shudder*

Anyway. The hotel was a haven of calm and we went out and about heaps - Darling Harbour, Aquarium, Chinatown, Paddys Markets, Westfield Bondi Junction, Taronga Zoo, George St Cinema.... we fit in HEAPS in the two and a half days that we were there. We arrived home at about 6.30 last night .. totally exhausted. SORE FEET!!!

I have taken HEAPS of photos but havent downloaded them to the computer yet. Will get onto that over the next couple of days.



Today I had to go to a training day for work, something that I have taught myself (computer stuff) and thought I better go and get the basics training. I ended up showing the trainers stuff. Wow. Oh well. It will be on my resume that I have done the course anyway ...


Going to pick kidlets up from school now...

then will come back and do a round of the blogs. So much to catch up on, could take me a while!!

Take care
Jen

Oh gol, just hearing about he "big city" crowds gives me the willies...I can hardly go into the city at all anymore without feeling anxious. I have to go down for teacher trainings and trying to navigate to the hotels and convention centers leaves me white-knuckled!

But I can enjoy seeing life outside small town through your pictures..can't wait!
