All in a day of the life of .... (come sightseeing with me!)


WOW! Yesterday was a HUGE day. I spent the morning baking up a storm in my little kitchen (pictured above) and then when little "J" got home from school we took a road trip from Hobart


to Campbelltown (Tasmania) and back! .. this kind of thing is very unusual for me as I get terrible car sickness and try not to travel too far from home if I can help it (out of the 5 regions I have cancer, one is my ear canal which puts my balance all up the putt, which makes me very prone to motion sickness).



I thought I would take some snaps along the way for my international visitors on my blog to see what a lovely state I live in. Yesterday was very overcast and rainy and all the pics were taken in a moving car (so please excuse the blur as I am no photographer!) ....

(a little island to the south of Australia)


Campbell Town is near Launceston on the map. We are so very lucky in Tasmania, that you can cross our whole state in only a few hours. Our little trip took about 2 hours each way.
... and this was what the trip was in aide of ..we came home with this little beauty for little "J" for Christmas! How much fun is this going to be??? (I think its just big enough for me to ride as well!) 8-)

What a lovely post..what a cool bike, and what a lovely state we live in...have you ever seen Tassie so green?!

Luisa, I drove to Launceston today from Devonport, and the countryside looks so lush and green, with water everywhere. It's wonderful. That motorbike looks like fun.

Yes, it was the greenest I have ever seen it. Its nice to see the farmers getting rain (although probably to the extreme and more than they need in the one time!)

Stay Cozy, Carrie

Thank you for all the lovely comments ... I love baking when i have time and love to see the smiles on children that love to eat my biscuits (just ask L at DanceInMyGarden! Little B and Little D love my anzacs!).. although I think poor little B just likes to eat while mummy and susan chat way too much over the fence! lol
