I’m officially back! After a very long break I’m excited to let you all know that One Perfect Day has resumed regular programming! Thank you everyone for your messages and emails asking where I’ve been and whether all is well. It has been so wonderful and I’ve definitely been feeling the love! I will be writing some posts about my adventures from the past few months but basically I was unwell for most of last year. I intended to take a four week break in January last year but in the end I needed almost the entire year. This year I returned to University to study Speech Pathology so once again my poor blog was put on the back burner while I found my feet and established a workable routine (time-management posts are in the works *cough* just as soon as I figure out this juggling act *cough* )
I’ve missed everyone and am so happy to be back, so how better to celebrate than with a flash giveaway?
IT’S SHOW TIME!
The Sydney Royal Easter Show is on right now and it runs until April 8th. The show has been one of my favourite events of the year for as long as I can remember. As a child it was always such an adventure, not just the show itself but the entire day. We lived a long way from what was then the showgrounds, but is now Foxtel Studios. (Showing my age now!) Travelling on a train to get there and seeing the city was always so exciting. There was always so much to see – things you’d never see anywhere else except for once a year at the show. The exhaustion I would feel on the train ride home, my belly full of fairy floss and my arms laden with show bags was always worth it. One of my favourite memories is dressing up in my super-cool Wonder Woman outfit that came with one of my show bags – complete with bullet proof wrist bands and the gold lasso of truth. I was fighting crime and catching crooks for months! 😉
These days I’m a “mature” parent and I no longer go to the show for me, but for Michael. Oh ok, fine. I still go for me! Michael and I will be heading there next week and we both cannot wait. There’s a tonne of fab things to see and do this year. A visit to the farmyard nursery is always on our must-do list and I think this year we’ll try to swing by the Dairy Farmer’s milking barn. This year you can even wash a chook! Seriously! Michael has recently developed a fascination with all things bees so the Bee-Zeebo bee keeping demonstrations will also be on our agenda. I think the showstoppers of the day will be Dinosaur Ice World, the kids’ circus workshops and the meet-and-greets with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Transformers. Details of these and other kids entertainment can be found here.
A full schedule of activities and events is available at the official Sydney Royal Easter Show website.
