A night at Nimbo

A night at Nimbo

Last week Adam asked me if I wanted to go to Tumut, in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, one day over the weekend.  He had an inspection to complete at work, and was going to run out of time to get in done though the week.  He thought we’d make a day of it and get out of the town for the day. The next day he said to me ‘Why don’t we stay the night, make a proper weekend of it?’ So we we did…

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.

As with all my mini-breaks, I’ll be keeping my luggage to a minimum…

The mini-moon

The mini-moon

Adam and I talked at length about what we wanted to do for our honeymoon after our wedding.  After much discussion, we decided to eschew from a more traditional fortnight getaway, in favour of a short mini-break.  Our time in England was limited and we wanted to make the most of being able to spend time with family and friends.

So less than 24 hours after we said ‘I do’, we jumped in the car and headed for a cosy little apartment in rural Herefordshire…

The alternative hen

The alternative hen

Ever since I got engaged, I’ve maintained I’m fairly clueless bride-to-be. I never really dreamed about my wedding day and although Adam and I are really enjoying putting together a day of celebration for family and friends, we’re trying to make it a low-key, intimate affair.

So when it came to discussing a ‘hens party’ I was completely stuck.  I definitely wasn’t keen on a boozy night with a heap of friends.  Thankfully my sole bridesmaid knows me very well and suggested a night away.  So this past weekend we headed south to wine country…

Local life: A weekend in Beechworth

Local life: A weekend in Beechworth

I found myself with an unexpected three day weekend last week on account on working some overtime. It couldn’t have come at a better time really. Both Adam and I were at the tail end of an exceptionally busy couple of weeks at work and we’d both just recovered from head-colds. Instead of hunkering down at home for a few days, we decided to make the most of the bonus day and treat ourselves to a long-weekend away.

I found a lovely bed and breakfast in Beechworth, Victoria – a charming, historic town about two hours drive from Wagga Wagga.  We made a reservation, and on Friday we headed south…
