Day in the City 15th Feb

On Monday 15th Craig had a medical appt in the city so I went with him and we had a lovely day including a yummy lunch!

When we left home and when we got into the city it was pouring with rain but by the time we came out from the appt the sun was shining and it was a glorious day on the harbour. We went down to Circular Quay and walked around the Opera house and had a look inside, something we haven't really done for years. No matter how many times we come to the harbour, it is still lovely to just sit and watch the ferries go by and enjoy the views.

When when we walked up the street to the hotel for lunch we came across this cute little street tucked in between all the modern high rise buildings. A little gem I have never noticed before!

We went to the Mariott for a superb buffet lunch. Lucky we didn't drive our car, don't think the X-trail would have been allowed here with the luxury cars!!

This was plate number one of food, just a little bit of everything to taste it all LOL. All the food was absolutely divine, excellent quality and well............just really yummy!!

This was just some of the desserts LOL - my favourites though - creme brulee and vanilla panacotta................

Looking down into the foyer I was showing Craig the brilliant quilting block design in the marble floor!!

So that was our great day out. My birthday was actually Tuesday 16th and unfortunately I had to work, but my work colleague and I went out for lunch as well LOL

I will be back with more photos of all the gorgeous fabric I received for my birthday.
