property with the cliffs in the distance
THE better half and I are on a little holiday up in the Blue Mountains in NSW Australia. We have left the family to tend to the house with the instructions of "No parties and no ice statues (!)" and "Remember to collect the eggs"....so all should be well - ha!

The dandelion latte was delicious

spiritual place, instantly calming
Both of us agreed that despite having a grueling financial plan over the next 18 months we still need to take some budget holidays from time to time and blow away the cobwebs. This holiday, whilst seeming to be 'fancy' has actually been done well and truly on the cheap. We have relished drives deep into gorges, enjoyed open farm land, happily have drunk in the cuteness of villages and towns in the area, visited antique stores (have only spend $29 thus far...phew), shared a serve of Devonshire tea and scones, picked up some of my favourite inch-liquorice from the antique candy store ($3) and have rented out a little cottage on the grounds of an old convent - gorgeous.

Take care folks and stay nice.
