I am so sad for New York

I was in bed last night reminiscing about our recent holiday to New York with my husband. My heart was a little achey. I felt so sad for the New Yorkers after Hurricane Sandy hit. I watched it all unfold on the tv, twitter and live YouTube updates. I text my husband furiously all day Monday and Tuesday with updates. We talked about Battery Park, Staten Island Ferry, Downtown, the High Line… After only just being there a few months ago it all felt a little strange to me. My husband and I agreed that that holiday was one of the most…

I’m home and it’s back to normal programming

Hi there! We are home safe and sound. We drove straight to the kids school and grabbed them out of class (even in my stinky clothes when I hadn’t showered for 30 hours – noice!). They were so happy to see us! And I haven’t stopped smooching them. I’ll be asleep by 7pm I bet. I’m so tired though… My house was clean and my Mum did some of my dirty washing before she left. Legend. I’ve unpacked some of my goodies including my new collection of handbags! LOOOOOOOVVVEEE them. They were my treat. Ok, so it’s back to normal…

Today is my last day…

(sshhh I’m reading in the NY Public Library) (In Grand Central Station) … Well it’s come to an end. I’ve squeezed the life out of New York! I’ve loved every moment of it. I’m ready to go home though. I love Australia and I love Wagga AND I can’t wait to see my boys. I love being a Mum more than anything in the world… I’ve had such a nice time with just hubby and I. We’ve enjoyed each other’s company. After 12 years of marriage it was nice to re-group. But we’re energised and ready to get back to…

We spent the day wandering

We spent the day wandering the streets of Manhattan. Hubby and I walked for hours and hours taking it all in. It’s our last full day and we wanted to make the most of it. I’m sad it’s all coming to an end… You want your shoes shined? Sit right up there! A street vendor selling fresh fruit… I just had to go there. It didn’t really rock my socks. It’s just like a huge Myers. . Lego World! Oh boy would my kids love that one! Missing a part? Grab it from inside all of these little holes! The…

Central Park Conspiracy Theory

Today I walked about 1.5km to The Highline. Amazing! It stretches 1.7km and was old railway lines above the city for freight trains. It’s since been handed to the people of New York and a body corporate looks after it. Anyway, google it if you’re wanting to learn more. It was so cool. Got to see parts of the city I hadn’t seen. . . .. .. . . .. .. .. .. Then A-M, my hubby and I jumped on the subway from down in the village (where the Highline ended) up to Central Park. Ok, I’m just going…

Shopping and eating in NY

There is a never ending amount of shops and food places here in New York. I have eaten more than I care to remember. It’s Summer here and there’s nothing like putting on a skirt from your own wardrobe to realise it’s not fitting very well haha. Oops. I’ve been walking kilometres and kilometres every day, but the donuts and pizza is too good here! Tonight we went to the most fabulous American Restaurant named The New York Beer Company. High tables, flat screen tv’s playing music (Jimmy Buffet! My husband was impressed with that one), and of course beer….

No more soup for you

The BlogHer conference is over. I loved every second of it. I really hope I can come back next year. It’s in Chicago for 2013. I’ve learned lots and you will see some additions and changes on how I blog in the coming months (I have so man ideas!). I’ll do a wrap up post on it all when I get home and have my proper computer. Tonight I caught the subway to Chinatown. There was a subway nazi. We called him the subway soup man. Funniest thing I’ve ever seen! He was yelling and bossing everyone. I thought he…

The people you see in New York

You all know I’m in New York for a blog conference thanks to Kidspot don’t you? Ha! I forgot for a while what I was actually here for. This city has consumed me in so many ways. It’s better than I imagined. I am enjoying it so much. But today I had some serious stuff to do. I was hanging to learn all about blogging from the American perspective. A couple of words to sum it up so far… Advanced. Future. Leading the way. I’ll do a follow up post, but truly, the Americans are years ahead of us. They…
