My parents came to stay with us on Friday and Saturday nights so they could go to a wedding here in Canberra. My sister Felicity's baby shower was the following day, Sunday, in Sydney. Dave and I had decided we wouldn't go, since we'd only been there are Christmas and we will go when the baby is born in a few weeks. But when I finally put two and two together and realised that mum and dad would be going to sydney on Sunday morning, I decided to go with them and come home on the bus. So we kept our little plan a surprise and none of my sisters knew. he he he. Oh it was so good. :) Alicia even cried. Felicity said later that she cried too but she hid it well! Yes - success! I had so much fun with my sisters and my cousins and my Auntie Julie. Oh it was great. The shower was at my sister Alicia's beautiful townhouse. She had baby-theme decorations which were so cute. Felicity got so many presents including lots of "practical" things. Always good! I got to spend some time chatting with my close cousin Kirrilly. And chatting with Auntie Julie about old photos and our recent email exchanges about the photos. I was only in Sydney for 5 hours then it was time to come home - I spent much more time travelling than I spent in Sydney! Before I left Alicia took me to her wardrobe and got out some clothes to give to me. And then she got out more clothes, and more clothes! I came home with about 5 pairs of pants, a plethora of tops and a fantastic work jacket. Lots of the clothes I can wear to work, so I'm totally stoked! I tell ya, she has some awesome hand-me-downs! She has a very high turnover in her wardrobe! Anyway, I took my camera all the way there and back, and didn't take a single photo. I've come to the conclusion that I'm not an "event photographer". lol Here are some photos that my sister Charlotte and Auntie Julie emailed me.
Here I am with my sisters - that would be Felicity with the gorgeous belly!This is a little baby tree Alicia put together. And Kirrilly and I.
On the bus home I watched The Lakehouse and The Notebook. I loved them both. Must say tho, The Notebook wasn't the most appropriate movie to watch on the bus! There were 2 sex scenes and I cried way too much. Makes for a bit of embarrassment! lol :D
