Love Fridays

As of 5.30pm today I am on holidays for a blissful week. And I'm off to Daylesford for a week of R+R, second hand book shopping, treasure hunting, country day trips and spa indulgences. I'm ready for it. That's for sure.

Sorry I haven't been around so much. I'm struggling with my man cold which turned into a fully blown virus and has me completely down and out. I'm hoping it will magically disappear by Sunday in time for holiday departure.

Apart from that, there's been very little happening. I have a few plans and schemes going on in my head but those are for another time. Secret squirrel business, as they say. Sometimes these things never make it beyond idea forming stage anyway. I've learnt to embrace it as another form of creativity, ideas generation. It's good exercise for the brain I figure.

You won't hear anything from me for the next week or so. I'll be back with tales of my adventures next weekend. Happy times fair friends.

Ooh! Have a wonderful time away. I hope you feel better soon. Doing absolutely nothing is the best cure, I've discovered.

Ooh Big Cat, here are some things I recommend you see in Daylesford. Firstly there's a wool shop (with some crafty bits and pieces, japanese themed) called Purl... And there's this HUMUNGOUS shed thing that is chokka block of second-hand/antique stuff.. I think it might be called the Mill.
.
Oh, and for a good massage there's a place on the main street, I can't remember what it's called though.

Secret squirrel business keeps us creating! Even if it doesn't actually come to life, the ideas are sometimes the best part.

Have a lovely break.
