I have had a lovely 4 days in Melbourne.
Along with 43 other delightful and excited women we headed off at 6.30am Thursday morning. After a a enjoyable meal in the Deer Park Restaurant on the out skirts of Melbourne at approx 7.00 that night we checked into the Hotel Enterprise on Spencer Street, a brisk walk to the Casino for Coffee and Cake before settling for the night.
Up early Friday morning nice cooked breakfast in the Hotel restaurant before heading off to the AQC. Wo........w I don't think I have ever seen so many women in the one place was sooooooooooo frantic , busy and exciting.
I made a few purchases, but on the whole I used great restraint.
Stayed until we got kicked out at 4.30pm .
Then of to the DFO outlet ..............Those who know me will find this hard to believe ...
but once again I used great restraint.
At about 9.00pm the feet and stomach where crying for help so 6 off us in the group headed off to have an evening meal in a Chinese restaurant.
Followed by a walk down to a cafe by the casino for coffee and cake.
After a few hours of sleep , Saturday started again early first stop
GJ'S Fabrics on 443 Lygon Street, East Brunswick,
then to the Vic Markets , then a free Bus trip around Melbourne, to look at a few of the sites before heading back to the Hotel for a quick shower .

It was fabulous .......amazing.... funny and emotional..... If you haven't seen it I suggest you do ... it is brilliant. Then once again the poor feet and stomach where screaming at me again as the last meal was 11.30 am at the Vic Markets ............So once again off to the Casino where we found a cafe and had pizza and a nice cup of Hot Chocolate. Unfortunately only had a couple of hours sleep before heading home Sunday ............The bus trip was a lot quieter on the way home then on the way down.

I had a very exciting and busy weekend!!!!
Will share some show and tell next posting
Until next time .......Marc
