This morning I woke up very grumpy, mainly because of the patches of sunburn. Oh why didn't I reapply the sunscreen? Why did I use thick, impossible to spread clear zinc? Oh my poor lobster body! I thought the best way to turn my mood around was go for a run and hopefully it would rain and cool down my lobster self. It didn't rain but the run did the trick. I felt much happier when I returned (and had a cold bath).
After I dropped the boys at school I went to Cockatoo Island for the day with my dad and mother-in-law. My dad loves boats and history so it was the perfect venue. It was very quiet and we had hot chocolates/coffee, wandered around looking at convict relics and the old shipyards and then had a lazy lunch while gazing straight out to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It was a great day.
|Fast becoming one of my favourite destinations|
|I didn't notice the bloke on the roof at the time!|
|So eerie and quiet - you can feel the history in these buildings|
|Huge workshop they used to build ship turbines|
|A very large lathe|
|Superintendent's house - has a spectacular view!|
|The view from our lunch table - not too shabby!|
When I picked up the boys I was told they had another great day at school. Its been such a busy day that my husband and I have waited for twins to turn in before exchanging our Valentine's gifts.
I had my second cold bath for the day this evening. And have been packing on the after sun cream. I think my sunburn is starting to fade. Phew.
