Christmas 2013 and around here

Christmas was a low key affair around these parts. We went up to see S's grandmother Christmas morning, S's brother for an hour in the afternoon and then out to dinner Christmas night.

The highlight was definitely dinner and drinks. We ventured up to the O bar which is on the 47th floor of the Australia Square building. It is a slowly rotating bar, so during the hour and 45 minutes we were there we saw a full view of the city. It was really pretty and really quite romantic up there. We had a few cocktails each then headed (in the rain) to our dinner reservation at The Four Seasons restaurant - The Woods.
The menu was a la carte and there were about four options for each course. I didn't take any pictures of the food because I was too busy enjoying it, but let's just say it was delicious. I'll definitely be back to try more of their food.

Since then, we have mostly been lazing around the house. We were invited to a street party the other night and got home at 1:30am. A great bunch of people. The next morning Ted was really sick from a bone we'd (stupidly) given him. We ended up taking him to the vet as for the first time ever he refused food and water and he was really sluggish. He is home and fine now (no bones lodged in there anywhere) and our pockets are much lighter from the hefty vet bill.

I hope your Christmas season was lovely!


  1. So, so glad Ted is back home safe and sound. It really sucks how much vet bills suck :(
    I wish there was a bulk billing version for animals ahaha.

    Sounds like a lovely Christmas! You two are so cute in your cracker hats


  2. Glad to hear Ted is ok after all that.

    And how great is O Bar! I haven't been there in a while but the views are great :)
