40 years together !!!!



After finishing off my Shepherds Bush Christmas Stocking, I was looking for a little bit of different stitching for a change so I came across this Sue Hawkins design for a spectacles case which I started to stitch the other night .... I love the colours and always love a bit of canvas work .... but I think I will change it a bit and make it into something else ....




We are just back from a lovely weekend in Sydney celebrating 40 years yesterday since we met on a blind date .... obviously that blind date went well because here we are still together 40 years from the day we met ... we had a beautiful meal at LONGRAIN in Surry Hills on Friday night ....




When we met we had lunch at a cafe down near Circular Quay so we went back down yesterday morning to have a coffee there but it was all boarded up for renovations so we settled for the next best thing ... breakfast by our beautiful harbour ... pretty special backdrop there !!




There was a big cruise liner in at the Circular Quay port (I think it was the one my friend Tracey hopped off the night before??)  ....




After breakfast we wandered around past the Opera House and through the Botanical Gardens .... there was a harbour swim on just beside the Opera House which was spectacular with 100s of swimmers on such a beautiful day .... perfect weather ....




We celebrated with lunch at TETSUYAS in Sydney ....  simply spectacular and very very special ...



I know food photos are boring for some but everything was so beautifully presented .... it was all a work of art ....



















It was a looooonnnngggg lunch ..... but we really loved it ...... then had to walk around the city for a couple of hours to walk it off .... such a special weekend indeed !!








So now we are back at home ...... have enjoyed a swim at the beach and a relax this afternoon after the hectic pace in the city .....
