Weekend Away


I have a thing for good letterboxes - I loved the hairdo of moss this one has grown. We have just got back from a lovely few days with friends (including a gorgeous 9 month old) in the Southern Highlands village of Bundanoon. It's the first time this Summer I have appreciated our unseasonal weather...the chill in the air felt rather fitting for such a sleepy, yummy-food focused weekend. Below are photos from our Saturday morning:

Cute shop alert - The Good Yarn is a charity shop in the centre of the village that sells gorgeous baby knits and handicraft. Baby Nina picked up these too-cute $10.00 booties (that stay on)!


The majority of the weekend was spent exploring, (I spent an hour walking around the long-standing and beautiful cemetery but it didn't feel right to take my camera), and lazing around indoors with the baby.

I recommend thinking about Bundanoon for your next weekend getaway. It's 90 minutes drive from Sydney (and with trains that go to Central Station). Check out some of the sweet houses available for rent on Stayz. Pack some friends and good wine and do your food shop in nearby Bowral before settling in for the weekend. You could also think about treating yourself to a meal at Biota, the restaurant I wrote about here.

I hope you all had a great weekend!

  3. It looks wonderful. It's so nice just to hang out with buddies isn't it? I just love the booties. There's a child flight shop that has opened in Kandos with hand knitted items. Yesterday I saw an elephant beanie that was too cute. You'd love the goodies they have there toots :)
    Hope all is well with bubba- loo x

    1. Hello! I'm going really well - not as tired as I was in the first trimester. I'm definitely growing a sizeable bump now too - I will try and get a photo to post over the weekend! Briar x
