A Day in the City
Today Oliver spent the day at the aquarium with Andrew's aunty, Margaret. She has taken all the kids to the aquarium when they have been old enough to walk the distances needed by themselves, and appreciate the exhibits.
Vanessa and I had an appointment in at the American Club to get a feel for the reception room for Wendy & Dave's wedding - we are decorating the tables.
After we had got the business out of the way we walked down to David Jones in the hope of viewing the new floral display. This year’s theme, ‘The Fabulous Festival of Fantastic Flora,’ is inspired by Graeme Base’s famous and much-loved children’s book ‘Animalia’. Unfortunately we were 2 days too early, but what was already on display was incredible.These photos were taken on our phones, so the quality may not be great.

And we had lunch at the 'Noodle Bar' in David Jones' food hall section of the store.

Outside I managed to have a free hug. You can read about free hugs here.

You got a free hug? How cool is that!

Is Aunty Margaret the Miss Pocknall who was my Grade 1 teacher at Carlingford West? I am glad to hear she is still going strong. She was a wonderful teacher (even if I did let the class budgie escape!)
