The sun is out and it is oh so mild…yippee! We have a lovely weekend ahead. The first family BBQ for the season, a catch up with the extended family and little people parties.
We are also on the countdown to school holidays. One more week of busy and then some time to regroup and relax.
A gorgeous guest post from a wonderful supporter of ours, Angela. You have us craving some time in our own LHOW (little home on wheels). Spunk has the map out and is dreaming of where we can head off to next.
Thank you Angela, Stanthorpe looks like a very beautiful spot for some rest and relaxation.
Fingers crossed for a little home lost now to be found…..x
*Glad to hear there is someone else as equally forgetful as I can be.
hope you are well!
It was so great to see baby Lewis and little home Share as post of the day recently, & lovely to read all the comments.
I have finally released our last happy home, which didn’t quite turn out like I had planned, but that is kind of the nature of this project that has its own life right? I had originally intended for the word to be Granite, which would relate to our trip in our LHOW to Stanthorpe in Qld’s Southern Downs district.
However, true to form which seems to be occurring more often these days I forgot to pack said home..oh no! I was really cranky with myself, because I was really looking forward to sharing some things from this area with you & the girls. I am still including some pictures so that you can still enjoy this lovely part of our state.
Stanthorpe is a very popular weekend getaway especially for folks from Brisbane. It’s also our local wine growing area. There are lots of cellar doors & not just wine, there is cheese, olives, specialty chocolates, liqueurs, fruit orchards of all kinds, lavender, a maze, mushrooms, pottery and all the handmade crafty/arty goodness you would expect of a quaint little place like this & last but not least the must see Bramble Patch berry farm. At the Bramble Patch you can have a very delicious berry based treat & yummy coffee. They also sell all sorts of berry related produce, jams, coulis, savoury condiments, liqueurs…I’m sure there’s more I’ve left out, it’s got everything.
Girraween National Park is just down the road and it’s also well worth the visit. Of everything we did & looked at in our four days, our kids loved the National Park. My 6yr old son was in tears when we made them leave after two hours there. I was so surprised, because it was free & the adults enjoyed it, so everyone was happy. I really didn’t expect the kids to like it because that wasn’t really my idea of a good time when I was a child.
So, since coming home I decided to use my misfortune to my favour & change my word to Forget, which seems very appropriate given the circumstances. Trying to keep track of everything these days with three littlies under my wing & husband by my side, I forget more than I remember..I think! Then lady luck smiled on me the day the “lightbulb” went off to release our home forget at our daycare centre(Redcliffe), in the Lost Property Box…seems appropriate no?
Love to your family
