where is she?

She, I mean I (R mentioned the other day that we, as in him and me, need to stop referring to ourselves in the 3rd person for Lucy, like, mum doesn't like it when... or mum thinks..., anyway I'm off topic already so let's leave this!) so I, have been neglecting this poor little blog... again. And I truly apologise for not responding to any comments, I will try to get to them soon. I am sure, however, you will all be relieved to know I've been having a wonderful time in my absence though!! You see, (here come the excuses) my best friend and her family are living in my town for 6 months, so we are trying to do as much as we can, while we can, lovely I hear you say! Oh yes, but now we are down to the last weeks, weeks and there is still so much we planned to do! Not that I'm panicking. No, I just realised that it was much easier to let everything else slide and do what I did for exams - cram! Therefore, the rest of this post will be all about our long weekend away, to Apollo Bay, a beautiful part of the Victorian Great Ocean Road, even if a little nippy in June. What did we do? Well, you know the usual, eating, drinking, playing, eating, drinking, reading, eating, shopping, walking, eating, dvd's, drinking... I'm sure you get the picture, and here are the pictures.


Tree top walk in the Otway Ranges
fascinating collections of fungi
buying gourmet finds, sampling local cafe, finding new friends, enjoying the beautiful sunshine in Biregurra

But you see one weekend is not enough for moi, so we are off again this weekend to explore Daylesford. The best part of this weekend being it is just us two girls. So the weekend is more likely going to be, talking, eating, talking, drinking, talking, shopping, talking, walking, talking....

Since I am neglecting you, I feel I should be at least leaving some enticing links for you to explore, but I haven't even had time to browse the web. I'm sure you all know how to amuse yourselves though until I get back from best friending, like, buy a dog!?

wow, you had a great weekend, in some of my fave spots! Our family loves Apollo Bay and Biregurra is great, especially on Town Festival weekend!
Daylesford is also a fave spot, the perfect place to spend a weekend, you must visit Ex Libris and eat everything you can there, the food is just gorgeous!
Oh and you know that beach house on my blog, I can't find it again, but it's somewhere in England!

enjoy your time. I/we never did get to Daylesford when I/we lived in Melbourne...one day. And re the not replying to comments...I truly understand where you are coming from. I'll still pop in when I can. :)

I love it down the coast. Next time you should try Johanna Beach for somewhere to stay - all the little cottages on the farms around there are awesome!
