About Me

My photo
I started this blog as I entered my 40th year, and now firmly in my 40s, I continue to learn so much about life. I'm learning that life rarely goes according to plan and that there's something new to learn every single day, be it a subtle nudge or a smack in the face.... This is my blog about muddling through my 40s-working hard, writing a book, being an ammateur photographer, trying to exercise and eat well, endeavouring to be the world's best aunt, as well as having fun and laughing out loud every single day.

D is for Darling

Last September Fi and I attended a breast cancer conference in Sydney.  Both of us as breast cancer survivors have truly embraced the notion of self care and 'self reward' and as such, we elected to stay at The Darling on Darling Harbour.

What a treat!  Decadence lined the walls from the art work, to the remote control block out curtains, the walk in shower room, to the top shelf mini bar and coffee machine! 

The decor was simply, well.... darling, perfection in fact, with daily changing flower arrangements that were nothing short of works of art.

Right next to the hotel was Adriano Zumbo's dessert train cafe, a part of the Star Casino complex.  Scrumptious!

The night of our conference dinner, as we danced the night away to a female Elvis inpersonator, Ronan Keating played a concert in the foyer of our hotel.  We missed him, but the thrill of knowing he was playing in "our" Darling was satisfaction enough.

We simply can't wait for the next excuse to go back! 

Thank you Darling.


  1. Great D post, Jodie! I wonder if this is anywhere near the Darling River.

  2. You so had me at coffee machine, but from there it just got better.

  3. Wow - it's D day already over in Australia. I still have 6 hours to finish my post here in Texas.

    Seriously, though, it's nice to meet you. I found your blog via Twitter. It's my first time doing the A to Z challenge and I'm really enjoying all the blog hopping.
