I love the chance to go for a longer walk on Sunday mornings. The dogs love it too, of course. They went in for a swim today, didn't stay in for long, but definitely a sign that Spring is on its way.
I've been thinking about the things I love about where I live, after a friend recently decided to down-size her big family home but also decided to stay in the area. We have restaurants, cafes and patisseries; you can be standing under the Harbour Bridge 40 minutes after leaving your front door thanks to a good train service; I can walk across the road and be at the river for walks and picnics; we don't (yet!) have good movies and bookshops, but they are a short drive away along the freeway.
They say Sydney is a city of tribes and villages - I'm pretty happy with my little hamlet - doesn't stop me pining for New York City, however!
