Weekend Wanderings

This weekend we went down to Melbourne for a quick 24hrs (almost literally, our parking docket at the airport went from 13:53 on Dec 3 to 13:56 on Dec 4) where Mister B's cousin was hosting his annual Christmas Party.  

First stop was for some sweetness and warmth on Little Collins  (Melbourne weather was typically unpredictable and straight after a cuppa we went shopping for a coat)  Dropping in at the Laurent has become somewhat of a tradition for us now, remember when we visited back here last year?

So much fabulosity!

The party itself was loads of fun, and the apartment was perfect.  Mind you, I could only enjoy the beautiful view from the balcony in brave bursts as the wind out there was freezink!  It's December people.

Ahem, we may have been a few hours in when this photo was taken :)

Isn't dessert ALWAYS the best part of the night!


Walking down Little Collins...

...where we found time for one more stop at our favourite patisserie before flying back.

Naturally I found a few moments to grab another ornament for the tree...

...let no bough go unburdened is the new expression I have coined for my addiction.

So our first Christmas party for the year and the season is off to a flying start.  The pun is shameless.  I know.  Hope you've all had a good weekend, now am off to have dinner and settle in with the three new mags I bought today.  

I shall report back with any need-to -knows!



  1. Sorry about the weather - it's been shocking lately - this week is going to be lovely though ...that's unpredictable Melbourne for you! Anyway it sounds like you had fun and got a bit of a sweet fix along the way!

  2. Love it. No decoration, er, I mean man, gets left behind.

  3. I am stealing that ornament motto - you can never have too many. Glad you had a good getaway!

  4. Well it didn't ruin our fun Melissah so all's well that ends well :)

    Ne'er a true word was spoken Leticia!

    It's yours for the taking Ash, never EVER have too many you're right.


  5. If I knew a swanky do was all it would take to get you to flash into town I'd have been licking the invitations into their envelopes before you could have said "We 3 Kings of Orient Are". (Locking that one in for future reference.)

    Also adding my apologies to Melissah's for our dismal weather effort, but hope it helped make you feel more Christmassy!! :)

  6. You can definitely see your skills within the article you write.
    The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as
    you who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart.
