Grass under the toes

It’s moments like last night that I love living in Sydney. A free outdoor concert, showing three ridiculously talented Australian bands, (part of the Sydney Festival.)

Did The Monkeys want to go? You betcha.

Did Mr Chocolate want to go? Yes indeed.

Did this city hippy mama with a big tummy want to kick off her birkinstock and feel some grass beneath her toes while listening to some tunes? Damn straight she did.

It was The Monkeys first concert. A line up of Busby Marou, Kasey Chambers and Dan Sultan, all music they love. Sure they like The Wiggles too, but watching my boys rock out to Dan Sultan…well that just brings a totally different smile to my face.


What have you been up to this weekend?

Any music been making your head bop and toes stomp?

  1. What a wonderful day out for the entire family!

    We went to a large shopping where we walked laps, and I just happened to poke my head into The Gap where I spotted a wool jacket. It was originally Β£79.99 and it was marked down to Β£15, plus an additional 25% off. I bought it for approx Β£11.25 I reckon the fabric is worth more than that! And it’s lovely! I was really happy about that!


  2. Amazing! Free?? What a wonderful initiative. I love that your whole family was able to go too – clearly set up to cater to all ages (or at least to allow all ages to partake). Far less excitement over on my side of the country, although sometimes I need weekends like that too πŸ™‚


  3. I’ve been thinking about free concerts this coming summer. Just small town sorts of concerts with blues bands or jazz or maybe a patriotic sort of thing with fireworks on the 4th of July- thinking about them and looking forward to warmer weather. So glad you could all go together and enjoy spending family time as well as sharing the great music.


  4. Sounds idyllic. Can’t wait for the arrival of spring and the festival season here. We spent the weekend sprucing up our campervan and it’s raring to go πŸ™‚


  5. Too much rain here in Brissy at the moment- all our community outdoor activities are cancelled… But I can bake bread and clean the house to the eclectic but classic sounds of Queen until it stops! – Kara
