Australia Day Long Weekend

Viva Australia, especially with weekends like this!

Thursday night: D came over for Turkish pizza and wine before heading over to the barracks for a Barcelona DJs set (since we couldn't get tickets we showed up at 11.30pm when there was free entry only to find a long queue, so we detoured via the bizarre spiegeltent, and headed home). Fun night!
Friday: Came in to sort out more papers to maybe one day finally ever finish my tax. Went to the beach in the late afternoon and made (and ate) pavlova as is my annual tradition.
Saturday: Stayed in bed and read Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, then went to my first ballet class. Wow. I thought it would be a very cruisey beginners class where we would just learn the positions and how to plie. Very wrong. Within minutes we were doing little routines and my seconde being corrected, back prodded, legs weighed on to make my calves stretch further. It was full on. But a great workout and very disciplined. I will want a ballerina's body after this (full wall mirrors and wearing a leotard tends to dent one's self-esteem). Saturday night S and S came over, cooked me a vegie curry (more of that please!) and we polished off a couple of bottles of lovely wine, and watched SATC with chocolate cake. So nice!
Sunday: Long overdue yum cha at East Ocean with the family, and a walk up through the city. Bought a pair of hyper cool tricolor Adidas! In the afternoon/evening was Michelle and Terry's wedding at Star City and what a fun affair that was! Silly hats, masks and wigs were handed out - a great idea! Lots of dancing, good food (rare at a wedding) and laughs with school friends.
