Had the day off today, so I was determined to take advantage of it. So I was up and out of the house early for me.

Made an appointment to get my haircut next week at Toni&Guy for $15 as a hair model. Should be interesting. Well, it's only hair, afterall. It grows back.

Went to the State Library of NSW. Got a free tour of the place. It's quite amazing. A book collection worth over $1.5 billion. Plus it's a beautiful building with lots of art and exhibits. I also got a free tour of the Shakespeare room, which is only open on Tuesdays. It's a room dedicated to works by Shakespeare. Then I went to the special exhibit and saw/read Shakespear's First Folio (and second, third and fourth). And the original diary of William Bligh, the captain of the infamous mutinous 'Bounty' ship. And the journals of several men who were part of the first fleet (the original colonizing fleet).

Then went to St. Andrew's Cathedral near Town Hall (the oldest church in Australia) to see a free lunchtime concert put on by Sydney's Royal Conservatorium of Music. It was beautiful. Three sets of different styles of classical music. I have decided that, if I were a classical musician, I would be a cellist. I just don't have the long, willowy figure or long hair to go with the romantic instrument. Well, that, and I can't play a note.

Then I sorted out my tour to the Blue Mountains for the weekend. I leave on Friday and come back on Sunday! I am so super excited I might just pee my pants.

Then I went to Body Pump and Yoga. Now it's bedtime as I have to be at work at 7am. Ugh.
