Mother’s Day morning

Happy Mother’s Day all!!

06.06am: I was blissfully woken up this morning with a kiss, a coffee & a Smiggle bag. My son opened the hotel room blind and a thick sea of fog enveloped Sydney City.

In the Smiggle bag was an umbrella that changes colour when it gets wet and a snake puzzle (old school). Love my presents. All carefully chosen by a 7-year old boy.

Time for breakfast! Out the door at 7am, on a Sunday. 10 years ago, I would have only been getting home after a long night out on the town. And not surprising that we found most cafés with their shutters down.

En route, we saw lots of drunken stragglers leaving bars and nightclubs – reminiscent of our pre-child days. A timely reminder on Mother’s Day that I wouldn’t change my life for a million bucks.

After breakfast, we wandered down to Darling Harbour to hop on the iconic monorail. We were surprised to find that after 25 years of service, it’s taking its last ride through the city on 30/June 2013.

The fog still hadn’t lifted but provided some good shots.

After our monorail adventure, we ventured to the QVB (Queen Victoria Building) for a mid-morning coffee & a blueberry friand.

The QVB is also an iconic feature of Sydney City with its underground walkways through to Pitt St Mall. Its architecture is stunning and vibrant, fitting for such a bold city.

Then we came across this – just in case your feet refuse to walk any further in your Jimmy Choo’s or Louboutin’s, or you blindly step in some early morning vomit (like I did!):

Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you’re having an awesome day wherever you are in the world.

Until tomorrow ~ Life Life, Love Life
