January has gone!

Wow January has just blown past very past. The last few days have been very hot in Sydney. Have spent the days with my two little ones by the water.
On Sunday we had a picnic at Centennial Park with Zalia's mums group. That was nice. On Monday Joaquin went to day care and I had a lady come over to watch Zalia for a few hours while I worked on an application. She is very whingeing with me, but had fun with the lady who looked after her. I was able to work and then spend more quality time with her.

After a lovely buffet breakfast at Lilianfels we went to see the Three sisters and to the SKy rail. We then drove back to Sydney and stopped at Ikea to get some storage tropfast for Joaquin's toys. It was a wonderful weekend. Joaquin did not want to leave the blue mountains and get got very upset. He swam by himself with some floaties on his back at the Lilianfel hotel pool. The hotel was lovely and old fashioned with gorgeous material wallpaper and lovely John Gould prints of native fauna on the walls.
Then we came home and unpacked and put the Ikea storage unit together.
