Although by the time most of you are reading this, the long weekend will be over and most of the chocolate in this house will be a confetti of discarded coloured foil wrappers.
Of course my weekend was the usual over indulgence of food and wine, the highlight being the visit of my gorgeous “other hubby” Ty (who said he would text me when he got home safely and I am still waiting…)
He arrived late morning Good Friday and settled into the transformed girl cave/guest bedroom and before we knew it, it was happy hour and the first wine was poured.
All was going swimmingly, until the men managed to catch the actual BBQ on fire, and pretty much melted it.
So with dinner half cooked and salads made, the decision was made to pack everything up, and head to the friends’ house, where we continued to eat, drink and make merry. Oh and go in their spa too.
Being a touch tired and seedy the next morning wasn’t going to stop the planned outing.
Breakfast first at a local chocolate shop/cafe followed by some shopping (man didn’t remember to pack enough clothes) followed by more chocolate shopping before heading down the coast to see my painting in the Rotary exhibition.
Pleased to say it was there. No photo, wasn’t allowed to and with it close to the entrance, no chance of a sneaky.
I did however get a photo of the steam train that stopped just near the Gallery.
A frustratingly slow drive further along the coast after to reach our lunch destination. An alfresco salad appealed while Ty enjoyed a curry and we watched the crowds of people enjoying the long weekend.
Of course, I couldn’t bring an interstate visitor to Victor Harbor without a walk around Granite Island, despite the grey sky looking a little threatening.
He was very patient as I snapped pictures of waves, rocks and seagulls.
So I bought him a cuppa tea when we reached the cafe.
Saturday night finished with dinner out with Hubby and MJ, Thai style (a compromise as some of us love spicy and some of us don’t)
Ty went home Sunday afternoon after a big traditional roast lunch and a double serving of my mum’s trifle to keep him going.
He was planning on driving part way before stopping for the night. (still waiting Ty…)
That pretty much brings me to today. Guest room has been transformed back to Girl cave and I have fiddled with some paintings while getting a huge pile of washing done.
Another new week has me back to my regular office and really for me, the beginning of an end as the office will be closing on the 16th May and then new adventures will begin. Still will have a job, just not sure where yet.
Nearly forgot this weeks art.
Simple meal of pasta planned for tonight although there is still plenty of roast lamb and other goodies to pick from.
Need to throw another load of washing on so I better finish this up and get it sorted.
Hugs and Smiles xx
