melbourne so far...

drinks by the sea...10 mins walk from our little cottage 
the girls & i...a rare shot of me on my blog...i only like being behind the camera!
mio the cat has settled in nicely...she tolerates chops the dog 
we go to the markets every saturday...the girls love it! 
how 3 months flies!  that is how long it has been since we have lived in melbourne.  so much has happened...the girls are getting settled into their little daily activities.  today was their school fete & it was so nice to see them running off hand in hand with their new school friends.  my husband & i have never seen so much of each other in our entire marriage...he has been working from home & it has been really cool to have him around + he makes the worlds best cup of tea so i have been asking for 2nd's.  we bought ourselves a new puppy after loosing our beloved 'pants' 5 mths ago...little 'chops' is very sweet.  his ears are like velvet.  i am working for an awesome artisan bread company called brasserie bread.  i am doing lots of different things for them & i love the diversity of the job + it has been great to meet melb foodie alike people too...they give me the best tips of where to eat.  we live in a gorgeous old run down cottage...the front of it is actually sinking but the neighbour told me most places are sinking in our street (slightly comforting).  our neighbour is 82 & he puts our bins out for us every week...also will talk my ear off whenever he gets the chance.  i like not having to care about things in the house so much as i did before.  the garden is a mish mash & there is a beautiful grape vine growing which i have watched go from bare to now beautiful big green leaves & soon we will see fruit starting to grow.  my blog has always been about food & i like to stay anon on it but this one is about my new life...

one thing that brings a tear to my eye atm is thinking of the girls closest little buddies & not being able to see them grow as i did.  commenting on their hair-cuts or giving their mums (my dear friends) a cuddle or sharing a tumbler of wine while the children play together for hours...i knew i would miss this before i left but i never knew quite how much it would make me ache.
choppys' favourite chair...he looks so damn cute on it
we fell in love with his markings...he is very spotty!
mohair magic...sends him to sleep instantly
i struggled to include this image but it is of my boy & i on holiday...it is such a holiday snap!
the awesome bread that the co. i work for bakes...quinoa & soya loaf
she is so delicious when she is sleeping
a storm that came over our cottage in seconds & was gone in minutes...that's melbourne for you!
my big 8yr old is 'over the moon' that i now work for a bakery...she adores croissants

I can imagine you miss the people close to you. That's the hardest part about moving away. I've mentioned that my husband is from Melbourne, and I've lived there with him - every time I read your blog, I miss Melbourne! Just love that city.I love all your pics. Thanks for sharing a bit more about you and your world. Have a great weekend.
