Five for Friday - 26th Sep

First week of Spring break for more week to go!

Here are my five randoms for this week


Tony and I had our first break in almost 20 years without our kids. They are almost 20 and 18!
We have only had about 3 nights with them at sleepovers and it was really nice to be just the two of us. 
We went interstate to Tasmania and stayed on the harbour and this was the view from our room.

We couldn't get over the blueness of the sky!


While we were there I got to meet Tania - she is another Aussie blogger. It is funny when our two worlds meet up - our cyber life and real life. I would love to be closer to her, she is just great to be around. The following day Tony and I were at a the museum and there she was. Tasmania had an extra week of school and are now on break. 

Check our Tanya's blog and store.


We stayed about 3 mins walk from Salamanca Place. There were lots of yummy places to eat and cute coffee places. 


We went on a delightful cruise to MONA - Modern and New Age Art Gallery. The art was amazing. 

This was a large piece - called the White Room.

We went for so many lovely walks and the weather was so nice. 


Port Arthur is where the convicts were sent from England and it is an eerie place.

On the way back we went to the Tessellated Pavement. The current has caused all the cross hatching and it is another great walk we did. 

One week to go of term break!
Our daughter gets back from Japan on Sunday and I am sure she will have lots of stories for us. 
I can't wait to see her, we have missed her.

Her host family have taken great care of her and she has been doing the most amazing things. 


  1. WOW! What a beautiful location for a vacation! I'm ready to move to Australia myself!

  2. Paula, it looks like you have had a really relaxing break this week! Lucky you :) You daughter is very brave to have gone to Japan by herself at such a young age! Good on her :)
