We’ve all seen and been those dishevelled, wind swept looking parents walking up sand dunes, back to the car with the look of defeat smudged all over their face. You know the ones? Numerous towels slung over their shoulders, lugging … Continue reading
I have big plans for my fortieth, big plans but mainly it’s about finding a little slice of bliss! Continue reading
Recently Hubby and I booked two nights accommodation in the city for us and the kidlets. We had a brewed a few ideas for the kids to surprise them, Phoebe has always wanted to go on a horse and carriage ride, so this was obviously on the list.

We watched graffiti artists at work and talked to them about the process they go through. We stopped at restaurants and ate slowly, with no rush to be anywhere. We caught trams and taxis, this was probably Ramsey’s favourite bit. We explored and learnt about the city that we thought we knew pretty well. Phoebe was amazed by Flinders Street Station and wanted to see inside it, which she did. We wandered around the Shrine, reading plaques and talking to some of the very knowledgable people that worked there. There was too the incident where Ramsey got his head stuck nice and proper in the fence that surrounds the eternal flame, that bit wasn’t so much fun as it was a heart starter! We also headed to the Casino to visit Galactic Circus and Peter Alexander for new Pj’s (this was my favourite bit!!).
We finished the weekend off with a visit to the Queen Victoria Market for fruit, veg, meat and flowers for the week. And of course, you can’t leave the market without lining up for some jam donuts can you!?
I love exploring with our kidlets, especially when we are down the coast. The other weekend we talked pots of gold at the end of rainbows, that maybe we were in the Enchanted Forest which would lead us to the Magic Faraway Tree, … Continue reading
I am one of the most organised people I know, seriously! Or I used to be. BK (before kids), I was the number one person to rely on for recall of important dates, birthdays and upcoming events. AK (after kids) … Continue reading
