Why this one? Well, 10 days after we married, we moved to live in Sydney. And we stayed there for nearly 11 years. So I have a few posts lined up to answer this question!
A fresh start in Sydney
here was our introduction to the Emerald City. They were heady days for us newly-weds, adjusting to finally being together after all those years of separation and making friends as we started our married life.
Adjusting to Sydney life
The 2000 Olympics
A very attractive photo of moi, n'est-ce pas?!We were so blessed to be living in Sydney at the time of the 2000 Olympics. It was a glorious fortnight. I had the thrill and honor of being an official volunteer. That exposed me to a vast array of fascinating experiences. This post captures the essence of that magical time. Remember, it was pre-9/11 so security was a world removed from what we are used to now.
Our life pre-Planet Baby
Our life after arriving on Planet Baby
Joshie and IndiaHere you can get a feel of our life once the pixies arrived. It was a *challenging* time, raising them without family around. Thankfully our dearest friends were also raising littlies at the same time so we relied on them so much for support. Having the 3 pixies arrive in 3½ years made for an extremely intensive phase of parenting!
You know you live in Sydney when...
So, do you think I've answered the burning question?! There's a lot to absorb but they were a full-on 11 years of life up there. I'd love to hear some of my fellow Sydneysiders chime in with your thoughts on living there. I miss it immensely. But I'm not sure we could live there again - that's a post for another day!
