The contrast in my photos over the weekend represent the weather in Sydney at the moment more than anything else. This week I have had a day in a t-shirt, another in a knitted jumper and a day in a hooded raincoat. Crazy times. What's also crazy is the amount of good food consumed over the weekend. My husband's birthday fell on Wednesday, so the festival continued well in to Saturday and Sunday.
The sun appeared out of nowhere for a ferry ride in to the big smoke for dinner at quite possibly my favourite restaurant ever. I treated the birthday boy to Pendelino. If anyone out there is the keeper to their 'heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad' recipe, contact me immediately. I need it in my life all the time (apologies for the quick table shot too, the husband doesn't love to dine with the embarrasing blogger/restaurant critic in me).
The rainy night before we enjoyed dinner with friends (with good cheese and a cute table setting) at a lovely home up the road.
The sun was well and truly back on Sunday and to continue the birthday festivities we hosted a lunch with family (I use the word 'we' loosely - pictured above is actually my husband's cooking). I did look after the place settings - which were good old fashioned scratchies in an envelope. In case you are wondering, we all won zip. Happy Birthday my sweetheart. x
