Sydney Fun and Darryl's 50th!!!!

We had the best fun!!! We really did!!!

We spent the whole 5 days doing very touristy type things and it was fabulous ... see how excited we were to be on the plane :o) .......even though we had to get up at 4.15 a.m to catch an early flight!!Of course, by the time we finally reached our lovely hotel room I think the early wake-up call had caught up with at least one of us he he he!! We did manage to get out and do a bit of shopping as I needed new shoes for our most important adventure ... Unfortunately, due to me being a little excited (hmmm ... or should that read 'nervous'???) about our bridge climb I accidentally spilt a bit of coffee on my beloved ....such a tiny spot, you should've heard the fuss!!!!! This is how he thought he'd get me back!!! I'm too quick for him though tee hee!!!It was all worth it though ... here we are "on the top of the world" :o)!!! Well, it felt like that LOL. It was a truly fantastic experience and I highly recommend it to anyone who's visiting Sydney ... you really should do it :o). It was a most memorable way to celebrate Darryl's 50th birthday, and in fact, we've decided that for my 50th (in about 18 months time) we'll hopefully fly down again and do the climb at night!!! How fun!!!
We also found a great Italian Restaurant while we were down there - a very family friendly place to eat ... it's called Soprano's at Surrey Hills if you're ever in the area .... the food was to die for and the service was superb!! Darryl was quite chuffed to be given No. 1 buzzer for our meal - since it was his very important day ........ I might mention though that he was even more pleased with his dessert when it arrived ...... mmmmmm Tiramisu!!! I had one too ...... I won't even begin to guess how many Weight Watcher points were in them Sharon LOLOL - let's just say I'm paying for it now!!!!
Talk soon ....................


I almost forgot ........ I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all you lovely bloggers for the very positive comments you left on my last post about my new "do"!!! I was feeling a little bit insecure about it but after reading all of your kind words ... my confidence has soared!!! Thank you :o).
