My all too short trip to Tasmania was fantastic!
I went with hubby as he had to go there on business.
Our flight from New Zealand was delayed and we almost missed the overnight ferry to Tasmania.We were the last people on the boat and it left as soon as we were on.
The cabin on the boat was tiny, wouldn't want to be in there with three other people, could barely move with just hubby there! I hardly slept a wink that night, the sea was quite rough and I kept thinking I was going to fall out of bed.
Tasmania has the most amazing scenery. There were the most beautiful old stone houses all through the countryside. As hubby was working and was in a hurry I didn't have time to take many photos. The best houses were the tumbledown ones, I sighed every time we drove past one (and there were LOTS of them!).
On Wednesday we drove from Launceston to Hobart and hubby dropped me off at Linda Carswell's house.
I had the BEST day ever with Linda.
Here I am with her spectacular 'Petite Maison'...which is not that petite at all!
Linda is the loveliest, most generous person and she spoiled me rotten.
We had the most divine friands for morning tea at Linda's house and then she took me out for a delicious lunch.
We talked and laughed all day.
And we made some gorgeous roses!!!
Linda thinks I work like a machine because I made seven roses to her three...but as any mother with young children knows - you have to make the most of every child-free minute!
I found a little shop full of French things in Hobart and I bought an Eiffel Tower cookie cutter. Liberty was so excited! We had to bake first thing Saturday morning.
And here's our first attempt at Eiffel Tower cookies.
And here's one little girl that was so happy to see me when I got back!
I bought her that lovely twirly tulle skirt that she's been wearing everyday since I returned.
And just so you know Linda really does exist, here we are together at the end of our day.
My day with Linda just seems like a dream now, it was all over too quickly. But hubby has promised to take me back next year, yippeeee!! Hopefully for longer as Linda and I have much more to do and talk about!
Mr Nylon enjoyed his trip too...just wait 'til you see his photos!
