In the middle of all of it we took a few hours out to take the pirate and the first mate to Questacon. Questacon, for those of you may not know, is the wonderful national science museum . First stop was Mini Q where I stole a moment, or an hour of moments, to work on some christmas knitting while the boys flew a rocket ship, amongst other things.
Lots of serious counting down.
But the highlight of it all was the wonderful work of Cabaret Mechanical Theatre from London. The show is called Mechanics Alive. It is a gallery full of quirky delight and wit and I left with the biggest smile.
