A morning on Mt Glorious

A morning on Mt Glorious

First of all, I just wanted to say a big thank-you for all of you who got in touch last week to wish me well.  I really appreciate your kind words and they did wonders while I was  feeling rather poorly.

Today I want to take you to a stunning spot, just outside of Brisbane.  I mentioned my little trip to Mt Glorious the other day on the blog and I’m still thinking about the few hours I spent enclosed in misty forest…

The suitcase guide: Brisbane

The suitcase guide: Brisbane

Adam and I are off on a little holiday to Brisbane, Queensland in a few days time and we both can’t wait.   It’s only for a few days, but we’re very much looking forward to some downtime by a pool and catching up with friends and family – some of whom we haven’t seen since we set off for England in 2016.

A day in Bewdley

I don’t particularly enjoy that sort of extreme heat.  Warm is lovely… but at the moment it’s just downright ridiculous! It’s making me crave the cool, damp days we had back in England just a few short weeks ago…

A frolic at the Fayre

A frolic at the Fayre

I can’t quite believe Christmas Eve is here already – with the wedding and our lovely holiday back in the U.K., the last few months just seem to have whizzed by. I spent the weekend deep cleaning the house, finishing up the gift shopping and buying lots of delicious food.  Adam and I welcome my parents and brother this afternoon and we’re looking forward to spending some one-on-one time with them all over the coming days.

I sometimes think the build up to Christmas is more lovely than the day itself – am I the only one?! You’ve got time to ease yourself into the festive spirit and special moments manifest themselves when you least expect them.  This year I got to experience the pre-Christmas buzz in both Australia and England, so today I want to take you back to early December – when trees were just being decorated and lights switched on and Christmas markets were in full force…
