We went to the Powerhouse Museum for the first time. At the moment they have a “Back to the 80s” exhibition which was interesting … Hugo now believes that I grew up in a disco wearing really ugly clothes (ok maybe that bit is true). It’s funny how many 80s icons are making a resurgence at the moment. Rubiks cubes, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Ponies …. we can only hope the fashion stays where it belongs in history.
There were other exhibitions we liked as well, particularly the science/experiments, space and steam trains. And I really, really loved the ” …. never done … Women’s work in the home” exhibition, and would have liked to see more of it but I had to leave to go home and do the vacuuming and cook dinner.
On the way out as we walked past the 80s exhibition, I heard a father shouting at a child “If you don’t settle down and start behaving, we are GOING HOME RIGHT NOW!!” and I thought to myself, wow – that’s EXACTLY like I remember the 80s!
