A few weeks ago, my elder sis and her family came over to Melbourne for a visit! The ten days that they were here were definitely not long enough, but it was wonderful time spent together. Besides playing tourist with them in the city, we also took a weekend off to Phillip Island (which, as it happens, was the first getaway for us since we came here too!).
If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you’d know that I love New York. I’ve been there twice, and once I even thought of moving there. So when Sofitel Melbourne On Collins invited me to their ‘Modern New Yorker Lunch’, I was like, yesssss I’ll be thereeeeee.
Reading is such an important part of life, no matter your age, but even more so for young children. I like how J.K. Rowling put it: “I do believe that something very magical can happen when you read a good book.”
The other night, after many nights of exhaustion and brain-deadness and zombiefied-ness, I decided that I should watch a movie on TV to relax after the kids went to bed. While browsing through Netflix, I saw The Walk.
