9 to 5

A fabulous way to end a working week, on Friday I spent the day at the National Museum of Australia for a work conference.
It was a beautiful day, and I managed to take some pics to share =)

The conference was held in the 'Peninsula' room, the front wall of which is entirely windowed. These pictures were taken from outside, but are pretty indicative of what we could see behind the speakers and their presentations:
The building in the right of frame is our National Library


And this is our Parliament House:


The museum is relativley new (it opened in 2001) and has some really cool interactive kind of exhibitions about Australia, the land and the people, and some interesting architecture too:


This is by the entrance, looking through to the 'Garden of Australian Dreams':


And some shots of the garden itself, first looking toward the museum:


then back in the other direction:


I didn't get a chance to look around much on Friday, but also on Friday Mum arrived, and we actually went back today to checkout some of the exhibitions (I say some because, in about 3 hours, we saw maybe a third of what's there!)

As if Friday wasn't exciting enough already, 'Maria Two-Bob' arrived from Canada on a surprise (for everyone else except us) visit, and was the special secret guest of honour at a Roadkill reunion in honour of Beauzo and The Red Man both having birthdays to celebrate wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh
I suspect I'll have more to say about that soon, either here or at Roadkill or both.

Besos =)

oh, PS BTW (hehe) I'm lovin' it - the JT album that is! I really like the song that goes 'damn girl damn girl damn girl damn girl damn girl DAMN!' hehe

  2. Hi, you have the honour-(well some may call it) of being the first blogger I have met in person. Great photos-would love to see more of your projects too.
    Hope you've had a chance to warm the foot pedal of the new sewing machine.
    Cheers
