Baby Shower

Only a month to go till grandchild number 1 is born!
The baby shower afternoon tea was a lot of fun with friends and family invited to afternoon tea.
On a beautiful Autumn day all the family silver, china and embroidered tablecloths came out for an airing and looked resplendent laden with miniature cakes, tarts, pasties, sausage rolls and sandwiches.
There were lots of lovely gifts and of course silly games and tips to educate the mum to be.

My visit to Melbourne provided the perfect opportunity to do some serious BABY shopping with Tamsin. We don't know if this one is a boy or a girl and finding unisex baby clothes was a little tricky. According to Tamsin it saved us a lot of money ;-)).
Before John flew off to Cambodia to take part in the OXFAM photoshoot we all went out to lunch at Dalesford where the highlight (apart from the magnificent food) was the feeding of the kookaburras that fly in once a day for a meal. Looks as if they get prime pieces of steak.
The Autumn leaves were putting on a great show and I just loved the different landscape, considering it only seemed like yesterday that we were at Uluru.

The highlight of my visit to Hobart was MONA! Museum of Old and New Art.
MONA is the extraordinary $150 million museum carved out of a sandstone cliff and built by gambling wizard David Walsh.
David Walsh, has put hundreds of items from his private collection on display, creating what he calls a “subversive adult Disneyland”.
The building was designed by Melbourne architect Nonda Katsalides.
