A day trip to Bendigo to see the Grace Kelly Exhibition…
"A day trip to Bendigo to see the Grace Kelly Exhibition" - isn't that a glorious sentence? Somehow the concept of day trips still sends a nanna like thrill through me and add stunning fashion from princess and you have me hooked.   When HD suggested organizing a group expedition/adventure to Bendiogo to visit the Bendigo Art Galley and their Grace Kelly: Style Icon exabhition I was excited; images of train travel, beautiful dresses and the sense of adventure filled my imagination. Despite ... Read More

Persimmon moi…
    My most recent foray into the MFWF 2012 was to visit Persimmon at the NGV over the weekend. The gang and I booked online a few weeks ago to partake in the $35 express lunch and while none of us were familiar with the restaurant the location, price and reviews all seemed perfect.   Persimmon is located at the rear of the NGV overlooking a water feature and some lovely gardens. Dee and I arrived first and were promptly seated at surprisingly comfy bench seats in the bustling ... Read More

Port Fairy Folk Festival 2012…
Can you think of a nicer way to spend a labour day weekend than listening to lovely music at the Port Fairy Folk Festival?   I was lucky enough to return for a third year of folkie goodness, carrying my low chair over my shoulder and drinking soy lattes to a lovely range of music.   The Port Fairy Folk Festival spans four days beginning Friday evening and ending lunch time on Monday. This year we drove down Friday after work so while we had a chance to see some of country ... Read More

Melbourne Food and Wine Festival and a Bistro with a Vue…
  The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival kicked off for another fabulous March on the 2nd of March. For those foodies out there it signifies glorious weeks of tasting gourmet samples, watching master chefs or foodie flicks, attending express bar sessions or my very favorite express lunch series.   The express lunch as a part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival has to be a highlight for me. It's a regional Victorian initiative where some of the states best restaurants fling open their ... Read More

How open are you…
This week and next Melbourne is all about the Australian Open. The city is invaded (welcomingly) by thousands of visitors here to take part in the action and activities. In true style we have provided no consistency in weather but have provided a lot of fun opportunities to get involved.   Bean, Dino, Spider, CJ and I headed to the courts on Wednesday evening post work on evening ground passes ($20 pre paid or $25 on the day). Most of us had pre paid tickets but we had to grab one from ... Read More

Who’s a big kid now…
Scienceworks Big Kids Night!I had my love of science and technology reaffirmed, when tweeting about my London Science Museum Lates visit I got a response for Museum Victoria letting me know that Scienceworks here in Melbourne was doing a similar inaugural event "Big Kids" in just a few weeks. Naturally I was in. So Dee and I headed over to Spotswood and to Scienceworks to get our geek on. Or should that be nerd? I really like Scienceworks but when I went a few months ago, one weekend, the place ... Read More
