Mary Poppins!

Early Saturday morning the 'horsey' one and I set off for the big smoke picking up Mum on the way. We arrived nice and early, managed to get a park in the hotel carpark and our room was even ready for us so a good start to the day. Into the city we walked. A cup of coffee later and I was even happier!!! We had a wander , Mum and I checking out all the Easter goodies in Haighs and the 'horsey' one checking out the fashion. Time to meet my friend Karen and my goddaughter Bianca and have lunch before going to see the musical Mary Poppins. It was fantastic. We had trouble getting good tickets and were worried we wouldn't be able to see properly. We didn't need to worry, we saw everything and were in the perfect place to see Mary fly. The singing was great and the dancing exceptional. Bianca was so cute singing along to the songs she knew.




We followed up the afternoon with diner in Lygon street which is always enjoyable. Sunday I was up early to walk to Vic Market to get the 'horsey' one some fresh pasta, oops only problem it doesn't open until 9 on a Sunday. Oh well down for some breakfast then hit the road with a quick stop at Costco to see what is new. Mmm this plan came unstuck when after breakfast our door wouldn't unlock, the lock was broken and an hour and 15 minutes later just as they were contemplating unscrewing the hinges they found a key that worked!!!! Sure that key will now be labelled!!!
A lovely weekend and good for the soul!
