We are now well settled into another house sitting arrangement. These two
dogs are very good - they do not go past the front door and are happy in the
family room and the back garden. The dogs have soon adjusted to us and they
welcome us when we come in and love to share the couch with us. One of them
even tried climbing on to our bed a number of times during the night but she
soon got a short shift from Peter!

Thursday was really cold and wet and we are not used to this type of
weather. Fortunately the rain stopped in the early afternoon so we headed
out as Peter had an appointment in the city late in the afternoon. We took
the train from Blacktown into Wynyard Station and while Peter attended his
appointment I wandered around the Westfield Shopping Centre in George and
Pitt Streets and then some of the arcades. Fortunately the rain held off
and although still quite cool was dry. After seeing the Sydney Tower from
Pitt Street I walked down to Circular Quay to get my first sights of the
harbour bridge and the Opera House. Before too long Peter rang and I met
him again at Wynyard Station for our return trip. If the weather had been
nicer we would have gone for a walk to the Rocks or Darling Harbour but by
nearly 6 pm it was too cold and we headed back to Stanhope Gardens.
