A romantic night away

This weekend Mr C organised a romantic getaway for 2 plus 1 little princess. The boys were taken care of so it was just Mr C and I off with our little party crasher delight to the wonderful Mountains. I love the Mountains it is one of my favourite place’s to venture for coffee and cake, and a wander around the amzing antique and crafty shops.  Mr C and I have not had a weekend away since mothers day 2 years ago when we spent the night away, so this weekend was long over due and this night will always be the most wonderful weekend ever but I wont spoil the surprise I will show you our weekend first.

We headed up into the beautiful mountains around 3pm on Saturday afternoon it was an overcast day but the green of the moutains shone and glistened with the recent rain.

We stopped at a lovely little cafe tucked into the side of the moutain under the tree canopies and had coffee and cake

Our cake arrived before the coffee and Mr C patiently waited so I could get a photo of both while he decalered he was ‘on tour with bebe rouge’

(Don’t you love that table I do and I’m inspired to have one of my own)

The cake was delicious I had the chocolate of course anyone that knows me will tell you I have a massive chocolate addiction hehe

After our coffee and cake we headed up to our B&B

The room was amazing

Beautiful blue slate floors and dark wooden furniture all gave to the feel of a french country flair.

I even loved

this piece of furniture so much

Mr C attempted to pop it in the car for me

Even possing for a photo whilst lifting

(hmm Mr C you are being very accommodating today)

Outside the views were stunning

and we were surrounded by beautiful gardens

We even had this cute little birdhouse

But back inside it was time for a romantic


well as romantic as a spa for 2 gets with

an 8 month old

thats kids for you but we did have a lovely time

it was incredibly relaxing to be away from our daily lives

The next morning we woke up and pottered around the gorgeous room and

thought we would venture into town for a coffee

Do you notice something?

Ooops did I forget to mention something?

What could it be?

After our spa Mr C had organised a copy of the first movie we ever saw together

he popped it on and made popcorn

but what was that in the popcorn

a gorgeous ring

and Mr C asked me to become Mrs C

It was incredibly romantic and thoughtful and meant so much especially as the mountains are where my mums ashes are scattered so I like to think she was there in spirit with us

and would be so happy for the 2 of us

I am over the moon with excitement and yes I did cry.

Hope you all had magical weekends too.

The sun is finally shining

Everybody I talk to of late is over this winter. It has been a long one. There was not much of a summer down under and now it seems our winter is going forever. I know that technically winter does not end until October but that just seem so long away. Everything is wet here and when I say wet I mean you walk on the grass and here the squelching of water, the rain has not stopped in the last couple of weeks. And I swear it starts up the heaviest at school pick up time. Any other mums find this. But in all that dreary rain and squelching water the sun has shone for us today.

And the boys have grabbed the opportunity to play in the sunshine streaming through our window.

The backyard lettuce is sprouting up beautifully in the  cold sunshine

The beautiful sun is shining on the mountains out the back of our little home. The sky is finally blue and even though it is still very cold the blue sky makes me feel all warm on the inside.I just couldn’t get enough of the mountains and the blue sky, I feel I need to brave the cold and do some hookin on the back porch today.The green against the blue makes me happy, at least that’s one thing I can be thankful for all the rain we have been having everything is all nice and green for the summer. I just can’t wait for the weather to be warm and dinners with these views on the back porch. Well I’m off to finish the hat for B that I’m still working on, hopefully I’ll get some productive hooking done while the little princess is asleep and Mr C is playing Lego with the boys. Hope in your part of the world you are all enjoying some sunshine or at least some crafty delights.
