Days 319 to 331/366

I am sorry that I have been offline for the past couple of weeks.  We have had a lot of family things happening,  good and bad.  Some days I didn't get the opportunity to take a photo, but here's what I did take;

Day 321

This is the flower of the Cunjevoi plant that grows prolifically in our neighborhood as we have an area of rainforest nearby that runs down to the beach.  They produce these yellow flowers and the spike then develops red berries that the birds love.

Days 323 to 325

We took a trip to Sydney for family reasons and to have a really big treat of seeing Cirque du Soleil perform Ovo.  The show was fabulous!  We did attempt to visit Taronga Zoo as well and got as far as the front gates, but realised we didn't have enough time when we saw the queue for husband has never been, so we will have to keep it on our list of things to do when in Sydney.
Here are a few photos from our visit;

A tiny busker, drumming away in Chinatown - you can just see his neck under the music stand. 
The entrance to Taronga Zoo - the only bit we saw!

The Cirque du Soleil Big Top
Inside the Big Top - ( this is what I really look like Robyn, not that odd looking photo on Facebook - not sure what my hairdresser was thinking that day!)

Beautiful Sydney Harbour                                                  

Day 326/366

My daughter's Year 12 Formal. We had a shaky start to the day and I thought we just might not make it, but it all turned out lovely.  She was chauffeured in a Mercedes Benz by one of my lovely clients and walked the red carpet on her father's arm.  She bought her dress online and then sequinned it herself.

Day 327/366

Spotted this lovely Buddleia or Buddleja on my morning walk

Day 328/366

I picked up a computer from the repairer's house this morning and as I looked to the right when reversing out the driveway I found myself face-to-face with this cute bundle!

Day 329/366

Not to be outdone by our other cactus, this one has decided to flower as well.  First time ever!

Day 330/366

Day 331/366

I gave this a "Monet-esque" type of feel with a hazy border.

I will try and visit your blogs over the next few days to catch up on all that I have missed.


  1. Great pictures!! Hope all is well by you!!

  2. Hello Helen, nice to catch up with your happenings. Quite obviously there's lots going on in your life at the moment. How nice to hear that your daughter got to her formal night - a night that will only come around once in her lifetime.
    I hope you do get to take your hubby to is really a whole day experience anyway. I'm sure you'll find it changed since the last time you were there.
    Keep well.


Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments.
