St Patricks Day 2011 Flashmob
Central Station, Sydney, Australia
Central is the terminus station for all intercity and interstate trains coming into Sydney. I know this station very well as its my start-off point to explore Sydney and its surrounds. Exiting to catch the Light Rail down to Paddys Market and Darling Harbour, of going further to Star City Casino, the Sydney Fish Markets and its restaurants and further still to Glebe Markets.

in Sydney on Saturday.
Thanks to Libby of Life is a Journey not a Destination blog. Libby is unable to attend the convention and she offered her ticket (free) to anyone who commented on her blog. I WON. Yay. Very excited.

We have had a week of extreme heat of 35+ with yesterdays temp of 45C. This afternoon the weather has turned and a slight shower of rain has come to cool things down. Lovely.

These pictures came from the Sydney newspaper, The Daily Telegraph’s social page, Sydney Confidential. It was a lovely sight to see after watching the flood coverage from Brisbane.
A great $1 investment.
I am sitting here watching the #qldflood coverage and I can’t believe speed of the water STILL flowing down the streets on its way to the Pacific Ocean. Householders are getting lots of help from volunteers to remove damaged furniture, mud and debris from their homes.

Merry Christmas, Everyone.

This morning I caught the train up to Newcastle Showground at Broadmeadow to go to the Newcastle Farmers Markets. The train journey was more relaxing than driving and battling the Christmas shoppers traffic.
I had a lovely time and came home with
a 6-fruit loaf, a blueberry and banana loaf
and some home made soaps.
Early tomorrow morning I will be driving up to Coffs Harbour to spend a couple of days with my sister, Cathy and B-i-L, Greg.
