Having a break.

This is where I hope my DH and I are on Monday - atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge!!! We're flying to Sydney tomorrow for a few days to celebrate DH turning the big 5-0 ... WOO HOO!!!!! For my last birthday in October last year we climbed the Story Bridge in Brisbane, but since this is such a big milestone in a person's life (... goodness, half a century!!!!) we thought we'd go for the 'big one' and climb one of our great nation's landmarks. I'm so excited!!! This is the first time in 20 years that Darryl and I have managed to escape alone for more than one night - and we'll have 5 whole days to do just as we please ...... bliss ;o)!!!

We did manage to get away on Sunday for a day out ... we took a lovely drive to Canungra where Darryl bought me these adorable salt and pepper shakers .... combining two things I just love - patchwork and chooks he he, aren't they cute??!!! Then up to Beechmont and Binna Burra. We hadn't intended to, but we went for a little walk in the bush at Binna Burra - it was just too pretty not to :o). Here's my DH being arty farty with his photography of this huge Strangler Fig. We'd have like to walk further but unfortunately I wasn't really dressed for hiking LOL!!!
I'm off to get a haircut this morning. I've decided it's time for a change, I've been wearing my hair pretty much the same way for about 10 years and I'm sick of it. Good or bad I'll post a piccy of it when I get home (eeek!).
Wish me luck ...................

How exciting to be able to get away, you deserve a little R&R.

Remember to pack some good hiking shoes or you'll be showing us some blisters when you get back.;D

Is it really horrible to covet salt and pepper shakers? If it is I'm in big trouble.
