The friend is one of Nathan's oldest childhood friends. Her husband is absolutely wonderful. Super nice guy. Very thoughtful. In fact, we once told the friend that if she and her husband ever split, and if we had to choose, we'd happily be friends with just the husband (you can imagine it didn't go down too well).
Anyhow, it was a bit of a rush on saturday to get things in order. We dropped the dog off to the dog hotel on Saturday morning and flew out of Melbourne in the late afternoon.
We went to Crow's Nest for the birthday dinner...indian food. Delicious.
We stayed overnight at the Park Royal near Darling Harbour. Nathan and I had two separate beds...pure luxury.
On Sunday morning we met up again with our friend and her husband (birthday boy) for breakfast in Redfern. The restaurant is called St Jude's and was absolutely packed with people. There was a big bunch of people outside waiting for coffee. We were fortunate to get a table. The inside of the cafe was decorated with creepy old dolls (I managed to find a photo of the cafe on the web with one of the dolls).
