My husband and I went to Melbourne for one night to see my son compete in a Milo national cricket competition. I packed for summer - big mistake. It was freezing! While playing the proud parent and trying to navigate the very delicate world of competitive cricket parents and teachers (there should be a TV show like dancing mums but called cricket dads & teachers) we managed to cram a bit of Melbourne in.
The Hotel Windsor
Our flight was earlier than my son's so I insisted we go to High Tea at the Hotel Windsor. I know, I'm a high tea tragic! It was beautiful. On the weekends there is a dessert buffet but unfortunately our trip didn't extend that far.

|The Christmas tree in the foyer|
|Where afternoon tea is served on week days (I will have to return for the weekend experience)|
|Serving afternoon tea every day since 1883|
|A good size and freshly baked|
|I pressed it - but unfortunately it didn't appear to work :)|
The next morning I got up early to run the Tan Track - but apparently this isn't it. That means I'm going to have to return to Melbourne as soon as possible and locate it. I got lost so all up it was a 1 hour and 15 minute run/jog/shuffle. I had just enough time to wish my son luck as he was supposed to go on an MCG tour.

|An impressive bubbler - but I couldn't get any water from it!|
|The Block Arcade|
|I know Sydney has Haig's now - but that didn't stop me!|

The twins aren't good at drawing so I was excited when I saw this learn to draw book in Big W. I would have paid 4 times the price but it was only $5!! There is a series of them so I thought we'd start with the I Can Draw Farm Animals.
|$5 at Big W thank you very much!|
