My Spring break

I have just had two weeks off work and not sure where those two weeks have gone.   Spring in Sydney is a lovely time of the year and during my time off we have some lovely weather and were able to make the most of the outdoors.    A must every spring is a trip into the city to see the David Jones flower festival and the flowers are always a delight to see.

Just prior to my holiday we purchased a new chariot which can be seen below

My how cars have changed over the years.   We were parked next to this old girl the other day.   A 1928 Alvis

And this 1955 Holden.   Our car can be seen on the other side of the road.  

Those pesky parrots are at it again.   This time at ground level.    For  some reason known only to them they have decided to dig a hole out beneath the gum tree.

Checking on progress

And the result is..........

One day we spent very local - enjoyed a lovely lunch at the local Tavern in the courtyard

And on the way back home we were reminded of the  dangers of bushfires that are a constant threat in our bushy area during the summer months
Next stop was at McCarrs Creek to enjoy the water views

And to finish off the last day of my holidays we drove to Leura today to enjoy the scenery and  gorgeous spring blossoms

For real reason for going to the mountains was for hubby to give the car a country trip to see fuel consumption and all those things that men talk about when they lift the bonnet on their cars.  
I am glad to say that he was pleased with its performance.    So he now has bragging rights.

Tomorrow morning at 6 am will be a reality check for me when the alarm goes off and I have to get ready for work.

I also managed to squeeze in some sewing but not a finish so I hope to be back soon with some Christmas trivets to show you.   In the meantime happy sewing.
