My mother is a Queenslander through and through - despite now having lived more of her life in SA than QLD she still says "port" instead of "suitcase", "togs" instead of "bathers", "graaf" instead of "graph" and "cAstle" instead of "castle" (ok, so you need to hear the accent, but work with me, please) - Mum is one of five and her youngest brother, his wife and the kidlets touched down in SA last night. I think they will feel like they have landed at the North Pole - it is bitterly cold here and probably at least 15oC colder than where they came from! Mum is in her absolute element, she has been preparing for months. She has a blood pressure and migraine issue, we are planning to keep a closer eye on her this weekend as she gets WAYYYY to excited about them being down. Ok, now what was the post about, why do i have photos of the Adelaide Central Markets on this post? Ahhhhh, that's right. My sister and I (we work together, ain't she lucky!?) will be walking down to the markets for lunch with the "crew" today. Showing off the best Adelaide has to offer. I don't think we realise some of the incredible things we have here as we spend so much time on what we don't have compared to Sydney and Melbourne, and ok - the rest of the capital cities. Adelaide has some of the best markets - lets face it "we give good markets" - I think we'll be dragging them to the farmers markets as well (might see you there Millie? - I'll fight you for a cupcake....) on Sunday. I'm looking forward to a fabulous 'family' weekend and I promise to bore you with stories of my little cousins (three and 18 months respectively) next week - prepare yourself! x All photos are of the fabulous Central Markets via flickr.
