Easter Long Weekend, Newcastle ~ the little lioness

Easter Long Weekend, Newcastle


Ahh, long weekends. Not too much traffic on the drive up, got stuck a bit on the Central Coast on the F3 on the way back, but not too bad overall. Extra thousand ks on the car, but time well spent to catch up with family and friends, even though this easter was sans chocolate for me, which I think cut down the amount others around me had!

Gorgeous weather for walks and a run

How often do you get to see family?

    I wish I could see my family more! Luckily I will be in Melbourne for my Dad’s 60th in 2 weeks, and then my fam all travel to Canberra in 3 weeks for my birthday!

    Not nearly often enough, wish you were here and not five hours away. I could really use my logical big sister.

    Oooh, that’s my kind of latte (and weather!) I wonder if anyone has perfected the gluten-free scone yet?

    True, at least it will be a shorter drive from Sydney than Canberra at present!

      Yes. That’s a positive. I’m just not sure about the whole unceratinty thing ;)

    Ooh black carrot! I’ve been looking out for them at the market now we are going into winter.

      I haven’t seen it before – turned the sauce a nice colour!

    I love the black carrot stir fry! And what is that funny thing of cutlery you have there? A foon? A spork? :D

    I live 600 km away from my parents and only visit them three times every year, during the semester breaks and for Christmas, but I can’t go home for Easter anymore. :(
