We had a lovely day, enjoying the Queen's birthday holiday (we are all conveniently monarchists if a public holiday is on offer!).
We went for a walk, exploring the Middle Head of Sydney harbour (lots of old battlements to protect Sydney from attack - frankly I did wonder who was going to be bothered sailing all the way down here in the 1880's to attack little old Oz ... but I digress).
The 8yo boy thought it was very exciting exploring the old buildings. We actually had fun. Not much complaining. It was nice. We laughed (mostly at the 13yo who was mortified by, well, everything).
I love living in Sydney. It is just so beautiful. Great to have time to get out and enjoy it.
