back home to cold Perth
Amazing to come back to Perth and feel cold - I think it is so unusual that you don't expect it. The weather in Brisbane was lovely although lots of Queenslanders told me it was too cold - we haven't been there before at this time of the year and really enjoyed that part. We stayed not far from the centre and enjoyed our walk to and from the Convention Centre. We had a great time at the Textile Art Festival and especially having Jacinta come and play and work for us as well. I thought my idea of the Artists at Work went down very well - I think I got the prize for the messier of the two of us - sometimes I just cannot resist bringing everything because I know people will want to see as much as they can. We both loved having you all watch us at work!
Also - congrats to all of you who came with the right answer - of course it was the All Whites! And thanks to all of you who came to see us, buy from us, chat to us etc. It wasn't as busy as last year but the exhibits were all great and we did sell out of quite a few goodies. Try as hard as I might, it always happens.
We did manage to watch both rugby games on Saturday night although I slept soundly very soon afterwards. And we found last year's restaurant - Barolo (yes now we have 2 - one in Brisbane and one in Perth) and had a few very nice meals there. Last night we went to Southbank to Piaf - I would recommend that to anyone too.
