We have just come back from an idyllic holiday up on the NSW north coast. It was so great to hang with the family and we quickly settled into the routine of beach and pool swimming. For us, a holiday at the end of January is the perfect way to regroup, recover from Christmas and [...]
We got home from New York last Sunday and I have hit the ground running, two kids will do that. New York never disappoints and as I have done most of the ‘touristy’ things on previous visits, I spent most of my time there, walking, shopping and eating – pure bliss. Anyway, we had a [...]
We have escaped to the beach for a week. My Mum and Dad have joined us. Victoria has a stunning coastline, rugged, lush and full of hidden surprises. Our daily visitor.

I had no plans this morning so decided to catch a film and go for a stroll. Five minutes into my walk, I felt as if I had entered another world…the world of the Upper East Side. Things I noticed whilst on my walk. Some really bad face lifts Enough nannies to hold a nanny [...]
MoMA – utterly breathtaking. If you find yourself in New York, it’s a must visit. Pablo Picasso And without a doubt, my absolute favourite…‘The Starry Night’ by Vincent van Gogh. The ‘Wishing Tree’ by Yoko Ono, invites visitors to write a wish and hang it on the tree. These two made me smile.
Dinner at Tamarind (recommend by Victoria) and it was probably the best Indian I have had outside London. I’ve been flying solo today and have covered some serious ground, my first stop was Purl Soho. The yarn section did not disappoint, a large variety and there were so many different colours. There wasn’t a huge [...]
Last night, we had a fantastic dinner at a British style gastropub called The Spotted Pig. The food was seasonal, fresh and I highly recommend the ‘Salty Dog’ cocktail. We have had another day of wandering, caught the train down to the World Trade Centre sight and walked up to Soho for lunch. Sarah said [...]
20 hours sitting at the back of the plane is never an enjoyable experience, even after watching 5 films. Although, now we are here it seems like a distant memory. The weather is sensational, hot and balmy and a welcome change from the Melbourne Winter. Both Lynn and Victoria recommended checking out ABC Carpet and [...]
filled with laughter, caprioska’s, knitting and hilarity. It was a blast. I’m very lucky to have such wonderful friends and a fantastic, supportive family. Thanks Mum and Dad for making the weekend possible xx
