Apologies if I lured anyone here with the idea that they might be reading or seeing something that involves pirouettes or plies or classical dancing of any kind. I'm talking about Spandau Ballet. What can I say, I'm an 80s girl through and through and fortunately for me I have a partner in my time warp- Grace. I do like other music but 80s music is by far my favourite.
Recently we spent the whole weekend in Sydney and all because our favourite 80s band, Spandau Ballet, was in town. What a wonderful weekend it was too.
We got our tickets early via the fan page so our seats were good. Very good. The music was loud and the show spectacular. I'd definitely go again even if it was next week. I don't think I'd have a choice really.
Saturday night we spent at Darling Harbour. Yes it's a bit touristy but that's what I am in Sydney now, a tourist. Years ago I worked there right in the thick of the city at Sydney Hospital and you become blasé about the beauty of the city when you see it day in and day out. Now I see it. Even the construction site has some sort of visual appeal to me. As long as they don't mess with those gorgeous historic buildings that are peppered around the busy streets.
And how nice of Darling Harbour to put on fireworks for us on Saturday night. I'm sure the girls thought it was a special event but apparently they are on every Saturday night. I put aside my personal feelings about the environmental impact of fireworks and such and just enjoyed the show.
It really is a nice spot and so busy. My two country girls thought there would be nothing happening once it got dark because nothing much happens here once it's dark, not much is open. They were surprised. It's busier after dark than during the day. That's the city. They want to go back.
Even Tim got something out of the trip. A shopping spree at the beekeeping supplies shop. Wow!
Now I really am going to stay close to home for a while. No more trips until the next one... I promise.
