You would not believe how much my life changed this month. After 10 months of living with pain I finally found a solution . After much experimenting we have hit on the right drug in the right dosage. My pain is so under control I feel like a new woman....and I have been busy.
Julia and Nina came over for lunch. She is adorable isn't she?
Early in the month we went up to Hervey Bay for a few days.
One day we spent a slow couple of hours over lunch at a sunny table by the window at Coast. The food was excellent and the service spot on.
Our trip to Hervey Bay was to attend the annual Seafood Festival. I had pre-booked seats at the Taste of The Bay lunch. Communal tables are always a bit of a worry but we were seated with two couples, charming Hervey Bay locals. (Hi Brenda, Bruce and Kendall)
My friend Peter was in town. He writes and photographs the beautiful and very successful Sydney blog Souvlaki for the Soul. Lunch sounded like a good idea and we decided to try out Gillian Hirst's Garden Cafe.
There was cake for dessert. The lemon curd roll was the bees knees and I'll be going back for more. Although I think I'd like to work my way through all the cakes on display.
The cafe is set in a garden centre with lots of greenery and pretty flowers.
A little prop shopping maybe.
Now I'm feeling stronger I spent some time in the kitchen. Not only did I bake Beetroot Cake.....
Bring it on summer and picnics in the park, evening strolls along the riverbank, peaches and mangos and cherries.
