January 5, 2011 / Neurotypical Me.

Au ‘voir.

Well this is it. My last blog. I was sad walking home last night but today I have started to get back into gear and think about packing, booking the pickup and so on and so forth. The boys are trying to keep up with their visual diaries.

What did we do on the 29th?

We decided to keep the last day close to home. We started at Loew’s and watched Sofia Coppola’s new film Somewhere which was excellent in that ‘locked off camera for that bit too long’ kind of way. She is great with characters. You have to see it if just for Elle Fanning’s performance. Then we went to Le Pain Quotidien (The Daily Bread – they are also in Sydney) for lunch so that Will could indulge his desire for coffee and pastries, for the last time. We suffered a little for his sake and kept him company with the pastries. The things you do for love. It was pretty damn delicious. We met some New Yorkers on the next table and got chatting. Will told them that we had gone to the restaurant 8 1/2 for Christmas dinner up on 57th. They said, as we sat in 65th; ‘Oh, we never get up that far along Broadway – we stick to the west side’. We are talking 8 blocks guys. It kind of reminds me of someone I worked with once who said that she would never live ‘further west than Bondi Junction’.

This is Will before he got on his bike and got fit again.

Sunset over Manhattan, from our window.

The sun slowly sets on our building.

Will is in the laundry basement showing those Latino women how to fold washing, hopefully! I am sorting everyone’s ‘stuff ‘up here in the apartment and sitting on cases so we can close them. Tomorrow we have the morning to put the apartment back into shape and then we spend close to 24 hours travelling back. Please let me know if anything happens on Friday the 7th as we lose that day completely. We fly in, having come from 27F in NYC, to 27C in Sydney.

Your trusty blogger, trying to get the slow release working on the camera.

I want to thank you all for reading this blog, sending your messages and words of advice, and even scolding me from time to time 🙂

It has been fun and I hope you guys will take me on holidays with you next time on your blogs?

Blogs (Haiku)

Blogs, windows to worlds.

Laughing at silly old friends.

Warmer, cheaper too.

    Hello family
    Lovely Brrr holiday.
    It is a quiet day at work so I have had a perusal of the blog.
    We are bizzay at the moment building a new house & biffing with builders, tradespeople & neighbors. All good fun.
    Great to hear from you- holiday looks good, though its a bit like going to the Airport to see someone off. Boring & time consuming & pangs of envy rip you up- just because its you and not ME!!!
    Anyhoo, have had my rant for the day.
    Hope to see you all in the not too distant future.
    All my love Anne xxxxxx
