Hobart

Another winter festival in Hobart … another birthday.  We stayed on the boat in the city on Friday night to celebrate my husband’s 40th and went along to the Bonfire and Big Sing as part of the Festival of Voices.

Hobart turned out in droves to stand around a massive fire and belt out a tune or two.  I love seeing everyone out and about and rugged up, even when the temperature gauge is in the single digits.  Hobart continues to inspire.  Xx

Market Love

Salamanca Market

One of my favourite things to do on a Saturday is to experience the Salamanca Market.  As Poppy and James are early risers (yawn) we scoot down after breakfast, which has the added benefit of avoiding the crowds and ease of parking.

We go to my favourite flower stall and pick out a bunch of the long stem lilies; have a baby chino/cuppa at Tricycle and are entertained by a range of buskers or bands depending on the week.  Last week we were lucky enough to have a visiting ‘balloon artist’ from Taiwan, who whipped up a fab butterfly for Pops.  We then had a little ‘highland fling’ with the bagpipes playing Christmas carols.

I love this time of year in Hobart – there is such vibrancy and cheer!  x
