Melbourne Mini-Break

There is nothing better than stepping out of your busy routine to escape to the ‘big smoke’ for two days of bliss with your bestie!  That’s exactly what Melissa and I did last Monday and Tuesday for our Spring Melbourne mini-break.

Our trip was perfectly timed with ‘The House of Dior – Seventy Years of Haute Couture‘ exhibition at the NGV.  Even though I grew up as ‘farm-girl-practical’ my Mum trained and worked as a Milliner and is a talented seamstress, so from a young age I was surrounded by beautiful fabrics, haberdashery and sewing.  Walking into the Dior exhibition was a heaven unto itself.

We ate beautiful food, shopped, enjoyed uninterrupted conversations and didn’t have to worry about what to cook for dinner.  I savoured the chance to wander with a friend and to be totally in the present moment.

I am so grateful for my supportive husband for this sacred time away, but I have now come down with the dreaded flu and have been in bed for three days!  Hmmmmpppphhhh!

Eat : Shop : Laugh

I’m back to reality now after having a wonderful weekend away in Melbourne with my dear girlfriends.  Welcome home to a brutal 5am wake up thanks to Master James; temper tantrums; numerous runny noses and a refusal of food that landed all over the kitchen floor.  Mmmm … take me back to The European for a loooooong brunch!

I thoroughly enjoyed spending valuable time together with old friends, having many laughs and conversations about the delights and challenges of our lives with young children.

Jo, Jen, Cherida and I ate our way around Melbourne, sampling tasty morsels at the likes of Cumulus Inc.; Spicy Fish; The European; Journal Cafe; The Alchemist Bar; Taxi Kitchen; Cecconi’s and Dumpling Plus (sorry about link overload).  We were immersed in the razzle-dazzle of the Emporium Melbourne Shopping Centre and tried not to do too much damage to our credit cards!

I appreciate these weekends away ever so much and love returning home to my beautiful family after a rejuvenating break.  I also survived my first ever nights away from James –  thank you Nick for a super job with ‘Daddy Daycare’. 💋
