Sydney Overall

Posted on: Monday, November 24, 2008


I had to say that after going to Sydney and Melbourne, I am still a city girl at heart. Though I truly like the peace and quiet of the suburb, I do miss the city life too. I miss the tall buildings, lights and activities of the city at night.

Overall, my trip to Sydney is not quite enough. I haven’t really quite finished walking the Queen Victoria Building, Market City and some other prominent buildings. I also haven’t really quite finished exploring the streets where they have shops that caught my eyes as I was either in the car or on the bus. I also have not had enough of the seafood from the Sydney Fish market. Most of all, I wish to catch a performance at the Sydney Opera House at least once in my life time.

It can be really frustrating to have such a tight schedule with 2 boys on tow. I remember not being able to contain my own anger and I had lashed it out at my hubby. It is really not his fault but I was just angry with myself that why we can’t finished touring the city.

We also had arguments over the boys because, to me, I wasn’t sure if the city is safe enough for my boys. I had kept them on a tight rein making sure that they were never out of my sight hence perhaps because I did not explain it properly to them; my hubby and my boys find that I am being very restrictive on my boys compared to when we are back in Toowoomba.

However, I really cannot imagine losing any of my boys due to my negligence or what so ever. Throughout, I know I was constantly fearing. I always fear that they might be lost in the city where there will be no kind souls to return them to me. I fear that if I just leave them alone for awhile without us holding their hands, a van with some bad guys might just pull up and grab them before I can react. At the beach, I am constantly afraid that I might lose them to the waves despite knowing that I want them to enjoy themselves and be themselves. Ya… that is me, in me, I am a worrywart.

Despite, of some unhappiness in the trip, I really had my fair share of fun and I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to at least have a look at what is Sydney like. I am also grateful to my hubby who at least put in the effort to bring us for the tour. Most of all, I am always thankful of him for being able to tolerate my outburst. I also have to say that throughout the trip my boys have been amazing except for some crankiness due to the long journey.

I really cannot believe what a great and amazing family I have.
