Here I am enjoying myself in....New South Wales......Thelma and I had a lovely holiday last week. We've been patting each other on the back and congratulating each other on the planning and executing of said holiday. I reckon the secret to a good holiday is making it not too long and not too short; only staying somewhere for a maximum of two days; never driving more than a couple of hours to get somewhere. Suitcase packing is an art and Thelma takes the prize out for that one - years of practice at boarding school. She taught me how to knit a fabulous tea cosy and I got to make new friends on the first couple of days in the workshop. We stayed at this lovely cottage.

We checked out some fabulous shops - one called Peppergreen Antiques which was a bit like a Tardis and went on for ever and ever. She who dies with the most fabric definitely left it to Peppergreen - check this out!!

We then went to beautiful Kiama where our hosts spoiled us rotten with fine wine and fine dining. I have since tried to replicate the fantastic pomegranate salad to no avail - all recipes gratefully accepted.

On to the lovely Blue Mountains where we found a great bookshop at Wentworth Falls.

But of course the walk was the best - Leura Cascades and round to Gordon Falls - heaven .... bliss.
