Blogging Buddy Weekend!

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the most magnificent things that has come from my blogging journal is the connections and friendships that I’ve made – both internationally and here in Australia.

Last weekend I had the fabulous opportunity to get to meet some of the loveliest, most inspiring ladies that I know, who have not only been my blogging and TpT support for the last two years, but have also been great friends who’ve supported me through personal issues, too. Friends in the truest sense.

Back: Alison (Teaching Maths with Meaning), Mel (From the Pond), Me
Front: Brooke (Teachable Moments), Emma (Clever Classroom), Shanyn (Classroom Chit Chat), Tania (Mrs Poultney’s Ponderings)

These ladies and I met up in Darling Harbour (NSW) to catch up and put faces to names. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet both Alison and Brooke before, but sitting down to chat with these ladies over drinks was just amazing.

We started off in our hotel, having drinks and snacks and talking non-stop. Tania even made a Blogging Quiz, which was hilarious. Brooke organised for us all to have fancy GoNoodle lanyards with our blog buttons on them, and Mel gave us chocolate!

After a while we decided to go for a walk down to Darling Harbour to find some food and we came across something fun and spectacular: fireworks! (Seriously, who doesn’t love fireworks?)

Can you tell I love fireworks? (I had about 40 photos of the fireworks, but I thought I’d spare everyone!)

We had dinner at a lovely Italian restaurant on the waterfront called Olivo. I had homemade spinach and ricotta ravioli, a lemon and lime tart and a fabulous mocktail:

On the Sunday, Alison, Brooke, Tania, Emma, Shanyn and I went on a ferry from Darling Harbour to Circular Quay, giving us a great view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House:

We also saw Luna Park:

It was such a fun weekend and I’m so lucky to count these girls as friends!

  1. For some reason we had fireworks last night in Echuca – they were no where near as good as OUR fireworks in Sydney though! Was great to see you again Stef! Enjoy your last day of holidays!
