Visiting the Tramsheds @ Harold Park Dine out

I was wandering along King St, Newtown while Stu had his haircut and I bought a scrap of  Japanese cotton in a super cute floral pattern. I was planning to turn into a shirt but it’s a smidge not wide enough… so yet another paper bag elastic waist skirt it is. (I really need to teach myself how to sew a zip so I can expand my repetoire). Anyway, this is a post about food not sewing! Even though we had a snack before departure I was pretty hungry by the time we drove all the narrow back streets (thanks no thanks...

Breakfast in someone’s garage at Two Chaps Dine out

At least that’s what it felt like… we drove down a street lined with orange brick warehouses and reverse parked against a wall padded with a cushion of grass and weeds. I’m super good (most of the time) at reverse parking courtesy of Sydney.

A weekend in the Hunter Valley Travel

The Hunter Valley is an established wine region about 2.5 hours from Sydney (depending on which side of town you’re on, crossing the city is a mission!) and it’s a lovely place to spend a weekend.

I had planned to set off early so we could beat the traffic, but Sir Stuart the Sloth moves the pace he wants to...

Secret foodies in a secret garden Dine out

Secret Foodies is a company in Sydney that organises dinners in secret locations – special, exclusive, different events enjoyed with friends or friends you haven’t met. A text message is sent two hours before with the location of the dinner – the mystery really adds to the experience as you are likely to be invited to a place you have never been before (and may not have a chance to visit again). Our location for the evening was a heritage listed home in Millers Point which was built in the 1830s, one of the oldest surviving heritage buildings in Sydney. Walking onto...

Sculptures by the Sea Uncategorized

Sculptures by the Sea is an amazing (and free!) annual art festival held in November. You to walk from Bondi to Bronte to Tamarama beach, admire the view and appreciate the art installations along the way. My brother was in town for a bit so I took him to see it. We battled the crowds, enjoyed the view, and devoured an amazing bagel from Glicks.
