Half way through Act 2 MiniMe leaned over to me and gave me a big squeeze cuddle and whispered 'This is the best day ever'.

For a six year old (and her mother) the day couldn't have been better.

She woke up at her grandparents house after a sleepover. I picked her up and we went to my Dad's house were the three of us the walked to the ferry. A ferry ride over the blue harbour waters landed us at Darling Harbour where we then walked to Chinatown.

Choosing her own lunch at Yum Cha with a tall apple juice on the side and the anticipation of the 'movie' building.

A short wander through Paddy's markets where everything is at your level to touch and play with. The excitement growing as around the corner .... the capitol theatre awaits .... Mary Poppins live on stage.

M&M's and some 'Lovely Lemonade' in hand, perched on her cushion, MiniMe was enthralled for the 2 hour and 40 minute show. It was an amazing production. The sets and the cast were particularly amazing. Slightly different to the movie in order and storyline but that didn't distract for her (or me).

A large ice cream at the Lindt cafe that was too big to finish and a ferry ride as the sun set over the harbour to finish the day.

Home in time for bed.

An amazing day thanks to my generous Dad.

  1. Very strange - I read the title to this blog post precisely as that very song is playing in the background! It is a rainy day here and Mary Poppins is helping us through a long afternoon

    Sounds like you had a lovely time together
