Amy and I visited the Hunter Valley on the long weekend to get some things sorted for our wedding this coming November. We stayed in a fantastic little B&B called “Carriages” that is right in the heart of the Hunter Valley, so made travelling to and from all of the places we needed to visit very simple.

Here’s Carriages from the outside -

We met up our wedding celebrant, met the wedding hire person and the flower arranging person. They were all very nice which was fantastic and also because we are giving them money so I hoped they would be.

Amy and I visited Leaves and Fishes and I had one of the best pies I think I’ve ever had in Australia and then the next night we visited Roberts, another nice restaurant next door to Carriages. Here’s Amy and me about to enjoy the starter -

Our little B&B was on a side road and whenever we drove down it there would be a couple of Kangaroos or Wallabies hoping around, here’s some -

It was a fun trip up there! On another note I’ve learnt where to use “Amy and I” and “Amy and me” basically if you remove the “Amy and” bit and the sentence makes more sense with “me” or “I” that is the one to use! Should have paid more attention in English lessons!

How long has it been since there was an update! The truth is there’s been lots of things happening just not very many of them have been put to any kind of digital media. Maybe it’s time to buy a new camera to get interested in it again!

So here’s an update on things that have  been going on.

We went up to Brisbane and met baby Angus which was a fun weekend, here’s a picture of Amy with the new baby –

We’ve also went camping at Easter to a place called Glenworth Valley with Lozza, Marcy and Chris. The campsite was a bit strange, there’s was horse poo everywhere. We wanted to go on a nice walk and the lady recommended one that took us to the top of the valley. Half way up I noticed I had worms on my socks, although they weren’t actually worms but leeches. They had crawled through my socks and were sucking my blood. Everyone was gross’d out by it but then it go worse as they all started to realize they were covered in leeches as well! So that walk ended pretty quickly. It rained almost the entire weekend which was ashame but Amy and I bought a gazebo which was fantastic, it kept us dry the entire time. Here’s Amy and I with the Gazebo -

We’ve also been having some fun dinner parties, Marcy got really into making some fantastic cupcakes, these ones look like garden vegetables but are totally sweet -

We also had Mike, Rach, Nancy, Marcus, Mia and Hugo over for dinner, we did a lamb roast which we messed up a bit when it came down to cooking it (we didn’t cover it properly) but it still tasted alright if not a little bit hard. Here’s Mia and Hugo playing with their toys in the living room -

So that wraps it up for the time being, we are going to Hunter Valley this week, I’ll take the camera and do photos sooner rather than later! Still have to make a video for Phuket trip!
