Our flight was very late departing, try 2 and a half hours late departing but thankfully the lovely and paitent Cass was still there at Sydney airport to pick us up! It was fantastic to meet her in real life after being blogging buddies for over a year and a half we worked out. She whisked us away to the Queen Victoria Building where we had High Tea here and where the equally as lovely and sweet Ingrid was waiting for us. Ingrid commented on my first ever blog post and we have been blogging buddies since. High tea was dainty sips of champagne, yummy tiny sandwiches and sweet treats. And of course real tea! We exchanged pressies, Cass made us these stunning bags, every time I carry it out, I get a comment of "where did you get that bag?" I'm working on Cass to enclose a dozen business cards in one of the pockets of each bag she makes, good idea??

Then on Monday I went on a train ride down south of Sydney and spent the day with a very dear old girlfriend Kelly and her children. Last time I saw Kel her daughter was 6 weeks old and Milly was a 2cm dot in my tummy. Time flies..... I get teary thinking about how far apart we live and how much we have missed out on each others children growning up from living at different ends of this country. Still, we had one lovely day together and will hopefully catch up again in a few more years. She used to live in Perth and we worked together in those crazy 1990's in the advertising and graphic design industry. She's always telling me to move to Sydney and I'm always telling her to move back to Perth!
After I arrived back in the city from visiting Kel, Ad and I set out for dinner. We ended up at this restaurant called Blackbird Cafe, in Cockle Bay. Ended up eating this pizza! MMMMMM! Pizza and beer! As we were sitting there we watched the monorail go by every few minutes, after our meal we thought, why not? So we put on our cheesy tourist grins and went around twice!
Then we went back to the hotel as Tuesday was the big fabric shopping day! This was the event we had travelled for! I'll pop back tomorrow and post photos of all the action!
