The week that was…week 29:

2013-07-08 13.13.59Started my week with a branch Planning Day at the Portrait Gallery. A lovely venue with natural light! And nice for a lunchtime walk also.

2013-07-08 13.25.19 2013-07-08 13.30.31Mum and Da were in town, so James and I got to work and the boys still got to enjoy their holidays. There was some arm wrestling with Poppa.

And some cooking with Nana.

The boys had a lovely time having their grandparents visiting.

2013-07-10 18.32.24I received a very late birthday present from Andrew R, but when it is something of this calibre, one doesn’t mind the wait.

2013-07-11 14.17.10 2013-07-11 17.02.19Went up to Sydney on Thursday for the visit from the Indian Minister responsible for skills – the Langham is quite a nice spot for a meeting.

And the Quay is an even better spot for a dinner, with views like this.

2013-07-11 18.45.35One of the hazards of travelling in winter to and from Canberra struck on Friday morning – trapped in Sydney airport due to fog.

2013-07-12 07.22.19At least there were jaffas.

2013-07-12 09.28.07I also discovered Iain Banks’ final book in the bookstore. Didn’t buy it. Have mixed feelings about rushing to read it as I will then have nothing new of his to read. It makes me very sad.

2013-07-12 08.33.20-1Saturday was Bout Day! Hooray. Will post on that separately though.

2013-07-13 15.59.24And Sunday was about relaxing.

2013-07-14 10.34.38We played some of our new version of Ticket To Ride.

2013-07-14 15.10.58And because it was Bastille Day, finished the week with a French feast – I made coq au vin and Sebastian made souffles.
