For mine and Isabella's birthday this year, my parents bought as flights to Melbourne and show tickets to see the new Mary Poppins production. Mum, Bella & I had a fantastic 3 days, shopping, watching the show, eating fantastic meals, and also visiting the Tim Burton exhibition.

The production was great, a few "additional" characters to the movie and a slight change to a couple of bits of the story was a bit strange but it was still brilliant. It wasn't a dance production at all but Isabella's favourite part was definitely the tap dancing during Step in Time by the chimney sweeps.

The Tim Burton exhibtion at the ACMI was amazing, the drawings and clay models brilliant. Bella loved the Batmobile and the costumes. Highly recommended...

Let's just pretend the 20mins trapped in an elevator at the hotel with the non-stop-talking-Isabella, my mother and a claustrophobic stranger didn't happen and it would have been perfect. Well that and the one cancelled flight, three delays pushing us back 3.5hours from our original departure time and circling Sydney airspace for an hour while they tried getting all the planes to land on the one operational runway since the wild winds had closed the other runways. We possibly could have walked home quicker than trying to fly.

Other than that... a lovely girls weekend.
