Delivering Crochet to Geelong


Last weekend we all piled in the car at 7am and started our drive to geelong to have breakfast with some old friends. They were down from Canberra for the weekend and visiting family. We hardly ever get to catch up now that we both have kids and live so far away. In fact I think the last couple of times we caught up was their wedding and then ours. So it was well worth the drive down the coast. After a quick stop for coffee for us adults and some tide the kids over until breakfast hash browns we were on the open road. The kids were great on the drive and I took along my yarn basket and made little princess a peppa pig. Which she has becomes obsessed with, it seems once all the kiddies around here hit about 2 and half they all can’t get enough of peppa pig. Do your kids love her too??

Geelong4We ate at the Wharf Shed which is right on the water. The water was freezing and the wind was blowing it up over the edge of the walls, we all got sprayed by seawater. The wind was blowing a gale but we still managed a walk along the waterfront down to the carousel where all kiddies had a ride, though little princess was the only one at the right age, B and K really really wanted a go but I think after it’s first round trip they were a little disappointed that going round in circles was all it did. But none the less it was warm and out of the wind so us mummies enjoyed it a lot.

Geelong5After Breakfast we went up the National Wool Museum, which Mr C had been so excited about visiting all week. (Can you hear the sarcasm in my voice) I didn’t make the family wonder around the museum I just wanted to visit the shop and see if they sold lush yarn. Unfortunately I’m very disappointed to say the don’t. They did have some wool on the shelves but not to my taste. So we all piled back in the car and began our journey home which involved a detour through the city due to my bad directions, but oh well we got home eventually. 🙂


It was a lovely catch and I can’t wait to see our friends again. Isn’t catching up with old friend the best.

Love to all
