We were able to catch up with Sydney Clare and Miss Zoe this week over a long brunch at Digi-Kaf, St John's Road Glebe (Leo Sayer's fave local apparently, although he wasn't there the day we were). Miss Z is really thriving with lots of gorgeous curves and dimples where it really counts. She loved having her Dad look after her in January while her Mum started back at work.
While Canberra was experiencing wild storms and heavy rainfall Sydney just got hotter and hotter this week. We spent more time enjoying beautiful Coogee Beach this time - taking dips in the water (not too freezing at around 20oC) and just appreciating that gorgeous coastal walks. Jennifer Hawkins often takes the Sth Coogee walk too we have noted, although I suspect she must do a lot more activity than that to maintain her perfectly sculpted body.
We also spent some time exploring Surrey Hills on Thursday. We got so hot in the process we had to have a long stop at the Clock Hotel (Davey's old haunt) on Crown St for Redback beers and a bit of a recover in the aircon. Luckily I recovered enough to be able to try a vanilla and strawberry brulee tart later at the famous Bourke St Bakery, which I decided was even better than anything I had tried in France.
Despite the heat (It was over 40oC when J & J & Miss E arrived at Coogee today around 1.30pm) Ella was all smiles and in a great mood for a short Sydney break with her Mummy and Daddy. I have heard that the predicted cool change arrived late this afternoon so Sydney will be bearable again tomorrow for them.
