a day of rest...

I had a mid-week break this week. My Mum is currently in Sydney (from Melbourne) and seeing as though she hadn't been to Sydney before, I took Wednesday off work to spend the day with her and my sister.

We started (of course!) at Circular Quay to see The bridge and the Opera House before we took a leisurely stroll through the botanic gardens. The roses were in full glory - their scent sweet and the blooms full.

These stripey ones were my favourites.

We then relaxed at The Tea Room in the QVB for some afternoon tea/lunch.

It was a great place to settle in for a long afternoon. My sister has a full review of the High Tea here.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Still haven't made up my mind about which log cabin setting to use. Will do another post when I decide.

I love your 12 Red Robins stitchery. Good idea to do it on the train.

Your High Tea looks amazing! I will have to remember that next time I am in Sydney!!
