Amazing trash and treasure market
Sweet William at Sisters Market in Bruinswick
Shelley and I at De Clieu in Gertrude Street

My sister Shelley left early this morning (sigh). We had a wonderful time, it was her birthday and we managed to fit loads in over a few short days. Here is what we got up to: We cried with laughter when we had to flop around the shops in temporary paper thongs after the birthday treat pedicure (due to leaving open toed shoes at home!); we had a lovely birthday lunch at De Clieu on Gertrude Street - followed by a spot of shopping and a look around Industria; we did the Sisters Market together in Bruinswick, which was great; we got up at the crack of dawn and found some brilliant bargains at Wantirna Trash and Treasure Market (find of the day: old printers lead type in Gill Sans Ultra Bold - wow!); we had a lovely leisurely afternoon at Heide Museum of Modern Art; we made hand made toys with the kids; we walked along the river; we went to cinema; drank tea, ate lovely food; we chatted and cried some more with laughter! We had a brilliant time. There is nothing quite like a sister. P xxxxx
