On the Thursday it was Miles' birthday so as a speacial birthday treat we took him to The Australian Museum to see the new dinosaur exhibition they had on! It was ace! The evening didn't go quite to plan though as we managed to get locked out of the apartment! Poor Miles wasn't able to go out on his birthday and he and Mim ended up having to wait around for the locksmith to come out while me and Ads went to the pub to meet some of their friends for drinks! When they did manage to get back in, it was too late to come and meet us so we brought their friend Tom (who was now our friend too!!!) back and had a few drinks in the apartment instead! Yay!
In Oz, Good Friday is a 'Dry day' which means no pubs are open and you can't buy alcohol anywhere so we stayed in an Mim cooked us a lovely Thai meal! The next day it was my turn to cook and we had a roast chook dinner! It was lovely as we had been craving a proper roast dinner for ages and although we couldn't get hold of any yorkshire puds we did find some cranberry sauce - yummy!!! Before the dinner me and Ads went for a walk to work up our appetites.
On saturday night we met up with 'the Daves' - some of Ads friends. There are in fact 3 Daves, one Mike, one Pat and one Jonny Bravo. Four live in Brisbane and the other 2 in Sydney. We had a lovely time catching up with them all! After the pub we went to a late night pie shop (!) which does pies with mushy peas and mash! Yum! Much nicer than a kebab! Cropper and Pat decided to have a pie eating contest (Cropper won - 6 pies!) and then we all went back to Dave Woods other home in Sydney which has a lovely view of a harbour!
On sunday afternoon we went to Bondi beach and met up with Conor and Louise! We stayed there for a bit but it wasn't as sunny as it should have been on Bondi so we drove to Watsons Bay and had a lovely Easter lunch in a lovely pub! It was really good to see them again after meeting up with them in Perth which seems so long ago now!
The next day me and Ads got the train to the Blue mountains.
Miles was our tour guide on Tuesday for our sight seeing day in Sydney.
For our last night in Sydney M&M took us to a pub in Surrey Hills for tea. Conor and Louise came and so did the two girls, Claire and Laura, who we met in the Whitsunday Isles, oh and M&M's friend Tom! It was lovely to see them again and we all had a great time.
We've had such a great time over the past 2 months in Oz and feel like we've seen so much. Its gone way too fast though!
