Daylesford second visit.

A couple of weeks ago I took two days out to visit Daylesford again and stay alone with my dog.

The place I stayed at was ok but they were cutting down trees for the entire duration I was there so I really needed to sightsee a bit or be driven nuts by the noise!

I brought a new outfit the first day and had a massage - bliss!


This is my new outfit I really like the colour.

This is the beautiful Maple outside my massage therapist's clinic.



Then off for nice walk around the lake with my best friend.





The next day off to Castlemaine to visit the art gallery, a book shop, the botanical gardens and have lunch at a lovely Thai restaurant.


Some art at the botanical gardens. Fantastic gardens they have, Brahma and I had a great walk there and worked up an appetite.




The best wonton soup I have ever had! I am taking my husband up there for a drive when the kids are at school, just to try this soup again.


The art gallery is small but very nice to visit, I love Castlemaine, just a gorgeous historical place.


This was in the foyer such beautiful colours.


I will be back to Daylesford soon I think!

Daylesford - First visit.

In the past week, I have been to Daylesford twice, I live about 25 minutes from there and for those that are not aware Daylesford is full of mineral springs and surrounded by forest and is the spa capital of Victoria really with lots of massage therapists and alternate shops and great cafes.

Last Sunday I went to the market there and took my eldest and youngest child and also stopped in at a beautiful open garden there called Wombat Hill.


I brought this gorgeous embroidered hanging that has been made in Nepal.


A felt handbag I just love!



This is the house of the lovely open gardens we went too.  One person lives here!


I love the Ivy on the house, the colours were magnificent.


Are they not amazing?


I like this idea.


Love Autumn colour!


Fluffy seed pods.


Perhaps an old grand aviary?

Best part I didn't have to drive, my eldest son has his learners so I could sit back and relax, in that tense way you do while being the teacher driver. 😉

How Bipolar Hypomania effects me.

Recently a friend asks me what mania was like for me? So I though I would attempt to answer via this post.   Just to clarify, I ...
