The Good And The Bad


I was intending on writing about our lovely day out on Saturday on Sunday, but the day was taken up with Doris and each day after I just didn't get time to sit and type.

Today I managed to slow down for which there is a reason. I will explain about that later, but for now I will show you some photo's of our lovely day out at Dromana and surrounds.







A beautiful winters day.




A wander around Heronswood the Diggers Club for gardening ideas.






A short trip to Tyabb, saw us at the Vintage Shed, for a plethora of vintage goodness. It was mind boggling. I actually walked away with nothing, as it was just so over powering in all it's loveliness, I had trouble taking it in. Also by this stage I had two tired, hungry and grumpy kids in need of afternoon tea.

In this tiny little town, hidden away behind an antique shop is a real afternoon tea delight. We met the lovely Robyn of Tilly's at Tyabb. Robyn makes all the goodies herself and is a bright and cheerful hostess. We saw customers with platters of yummy sandwiches and sweet treats enjoying High Tea, we partook of the Devonshire tea and felt much better and recharged for our trip back home. Thanks Robyn, looking forward to dropping in again.


Now for the bad.


Last night at the Childrens Hospital.

Ava came off rather badly after a game of chasy with Lucy, there was a clash while running and Ava ended up with a broken elbow.

So my poor little poppet now has a caste from her wrist to her armpit for the next 4-6 weeks. So today was a quite day.

We certainly are looking forward to our Thailand trip, only seven weeks to go.

Wow, I love heronswood, hows this, I nearly went to the vintage shed today, I love that place! I havent made any purchases there either cause there is just too much fantastic stuff. Going tomorrow, after a vintage suitcase or two, a white bird (ceramic or wood) and maybe some other wonderful things. Poor baby girl, hope she is ok xx

oh no ! get better soon Ava ♥ sending you my love. Alison, can't believe we both went to Tyabb on Saturday, and both had a stop off at tilly's. We started our morning there with morning tea in front of the fire before we went to the Shed. I really tired Vic out tho' and he had a very quiet Sunday. This coming Sunday I'm at Nth Melb (in the ballroom).. maybe see you there.
