The secret to marital bliss

is on the packet... MOTH and I went out for a date to celebrate our anniversary. He told me to meet him in town and I drove in. As I crossed the Harbour Bridge I thought - again - that Sydney must be the nicest town in the world to commute to. At least coming from our direction. You can cross the bridge and have full views to the city, the harbour, the Opera House. It wasn't bad on a rainy night like Wednesday, and it's spectacular on a sunny day. Having met up, we walked down to Lady Macquarie's Chair where the surprise destination became apparent. We were heading for the St George Open Air Cinema to see the world premiere of "Definately Maybe". (Extra brownie points to MOTH for taking me to a chick flick). I don't have any photos of the event because I managed to leave the camera in the car ("DOH!- moment"), but I will attempt to describe it. For starters the weather was quite severe with a thunderstorm and a downpour of rain but we were issued ponchos, and we had our golf umbrella. After reserving our seats we headed for the food tent whereafter we sat down enjoying our food huddling under the umbrella.

I had brought along a little treat.. I found it at the till in Borders while paying for the anniversary present (a DVD with the second series of "the Eagle") and thought it was perfect. It is a bar of the most delicious dark chocolate from Bloomsberry and although it was worth it for the taste of the chocolate alone, the packaging is what really made it (see picture above). We had the most wonderful views as we sat there watching the movie with the backdrop of the harbour, the city, the bridge, the opera house etc. It stopped raining about halfway through so we were able to pull the hoods down and feel a little less clammy.
Leaving the event afterwards I had a little giggle as I watched the crowd move along into the park in our ponchos, looking like we had all been taking part in some pagan ritual. btw - the movie wasn't bad.

  1. That is the best wrapper I have seen.

    Congrats on your anniversary. We are going to have to check out the out door theater. We walked past it over the weekend while in the Gardens and thought it looked like fun. They were even playing "Hairspray" which I would like to see - but I didn't think the kids would.

  2. I'm going to get a block of that for V-Day! Win will love it!
